Sunday, 31 December 2017

With the course of history there appeared a huge number of secret societies and conspiratorial theories about them. So, we present to your attention a list of the ten most powerful, popular and famous secret societies, as well as supposed secret organizations.

10.  Opus Dei

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

Opens the Opus Dei rating, or the Prelature of the Holy Cross and the Cause of God - the personal prelature of the Catholic Church, whose main conviction is the belief that people can achieve holiness and ordinary life is the direct path leading to piety. The Order was formed in 1928 in Spain, the Catholic priest of Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, with the blessing of Pope Pius XII.

Surprisingly, on the pages of one of the best-selling and overestimated books in the world, The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown argued that Opus Dei is a secret organization whose purpose is to destroy the Priory of Zion and everyone who tried to uncover the "truth" about Christianity and truth, about the supposed royal bloodline of Christ. In addition to the book, there was still a huge number of contradictions related to the severity of the religious structure of Opus Dei.

Since the Catholic Church prohibits secret societies and membership in them, the Opus Dei unmaskers often complain that the organization is secret and conducts a secret and sinister policy. Read more...

9.  Priority of Zion

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

After the publication of the Da Vinci Code, the attention of the public turned to the Priory of Zion. In fact, to the disappointment of those who wanted to join this community, it was fictional. It was a fraud, invented in 1956 by the pretender to the French throne, Pierre Plantar. The existing letters written by Plantar, de Scherisei and de Sad to each other in 1960 confirm that the three participated in outright fraud, describing schemes on how to deal with critical remarks and various statements in order to preserve the existence of their invented organization. Despite this, many people still believe that the "Priory of Zion" exists and functions, to this day.

The authors of the well-known book "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail", misled claimed:

  • "Priory of Zion" exists since 1099 and there were such great minds as Isaac Newton and Leonardo da Vinci;
  • The Order protects certain royal persons, because they believe that they are literal descendants of Jesus and his supposed wife Mary Magdalene, or at least King David;
  • The society strives to create the "Holy European Empire", which should become the next hyperpower establishing the New World Order leading to peace and prosperity.

8.  Bilderberg Club

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

This group differs from others in that it does not have an official membership. This is an annual secret conference, consisting of approximately 130 participants, most of whom are influential people in politics, business and banking, as well as heads of leading Western media. Log in to the conference only by personal invitation. The meeting is usually held in one of the five-star hotels in the world. The topics discussed at the conference are kept secret. The first meeting took place in 1954 at the Hotel Bilderberg, in the Netherlands.

This meeting was organized by several people. The Polish immigrant and political adviser Joseph Retinger, who was concerned about the growth of anti-American sentiment in Western Europe, suggested holding a conference where European and American leaders could discuss all the pressing issues.

Although the agenda and the list of participants were available to the public, the details of the meeting remained unknown. In addition, the content of the conferences is kept secret, and visitors are obliged not to disclose the issues discussed. Justifying the group's secrecy is that at a meeting, participants can speak freely, without fear that every word can be misinterpreted by the media.

Needless to say, this group is constantly surrounded by contradictions and theories.

7.  Illuminati

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

Illuminati (call themselves "enlightened") is a secret society of an occult philosophical and mystical nature that was formed on May 1, 1776 in Ingolstadt, by Adam Weishaupt. It was originally known as the "Bavarian Illuminati". Then the group was considered illegal, but many influential intellectuals and progressive politicians joined its ranks. Due to the fact that the Illuminati did not consider faith in the Most High main, society became especially popular among atheists. In addition, most of the participants are humanists. It is widely believed that the Illuminati seek to overthrow the existing religion.

Internal panic due to the change of leader, and government attempts to declare the group outlaw led to its destruction in 1785. Despite this, theorists such as David Ik and Wase Penre claimed that "Bavarian Illuminati" exist to this day. Although there is very little evidence of this theory. It was even believed that the Skull and the Bones Society was an American branch of the Illuminati.

Many believe that the Illuminati still control the actions of the world government and that they want to create a One World Government based on humanism and atheistic principles.

6.  Templars

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

The sixth place in the list of the most famous secret societies of the world is occupied by the "Templars" - an international, philanthropic, knightly order associated with Freemasonry. This modern branch of Freemasonry, which has no direct relationship to the spiritual knightly order, founded in 1119 by a small group of knights led by Hugo de Paine, after the First Crusade. Modern Templars deny their connection with the medieval order, but actively use its symbols and ideas.

To become a member of society, you must be a third degree Mason. Despite the claims of Freemasonry, that no Masonic organization is a direct legacy of the medieval Templars, certain ranks and rituals are obviously copied from the medieval order. They are known as "jubilee titles" or degrees. Nevertheless, despite the official statements of the brotherhood, some Masons, "nemasons", and even anti-Masons insist that certain Masonic rites and titles have direct Templar influence.

5.  Hermetic Order "Golden Dawn"

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (or, in most cases, simply the Golden Dawn) is a magical order that is an occult organization that operated in the UK during the second half of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. Its members practiced theurgy, magic, alchemy and encouraged the spiritual development of their adherents. It is considered the progenitor of most occult groups.

The system of views of the "Golden Dawn" is mainly taken from Christian mysticism, bondage, alchemy, the religion of ancient Egypt, Freemasonry, Hermeticism, Theosophy, magic and Renaissance letters. William Westcott and Aleister Crowley are the most famous members of the group.

The fundamental documents of the Order, known as the "Coded Manuscripts," were translated into English, with the help of a cipher written by Johann Tritemius. On 60 sheets of the document, the magical rituals, the basic structure, which is derived from the Rosicrucians, were described.

4.  Order of the Eastern Templars

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

The Order of the Eastern Templars is an international occult-religious organization that has existed since 1902. Originally conceived by Carl Kellner, Franz Hartmann and Theodor Reuss as a Masonic academy that would reflect the symbolism of several occult-mystical communities. But in 1912 the organization turned into a carrier of Thelem's teachings under the direction of the occultist Aleister Crowley.

The Order considers itself bound to Freemasonry, but it has not received recognition from the Masonic organizations and is qualified by a number of researchers as "pseudo-masonry". At the moment, there are about 3,000 participants. They have several levels of initiation, as well as stylized rituals with the participation of virgin priests, children and priests. Mentioned are the gods from Egyptian mythology and the devil.

3.  Order of the Rosicrucians

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

Rosicrucianism (Rosicrucian Order, Rosicrucians, Order of the Rose and the Cross) is a theological and secret mystical society, presumably founded during the late Middle Ages in Germany, by Christian Rosencreutz.

It is interesting that between 1607 and 1616 two anonymous manifestos were published, initially spread in Germany, and then in all of Europe. They were named Fama Fraternitatis RC (Glory of the Brotherhood) and Confessio Fraternitatis (Confession of the Brotherhood). Under the influence of these documents, representing the "most revered order" of mystic philosophers-scientists who disseminate the "worldwide reformation of mankind", the ground for movement appeared, which Francis Yates later called "the Rosicrucian Enlightenment". The third important document in society, arose in 1459. He described how Christian Rosencreutz, a traveler and alchemist, married a king and a queen in the Wonderful Palace.

"Rosicrucianism" was associated with Protestantism and, in part, with Lutheranism. According to historian David Stevenson, "Rosicrucianism" also had an impact on the development of Freemasonry in Scotland. Many secret societies claimed that they received their continuity and sacraments, in whole or in part, from the original Rosicrucians.

Now there is a huge number of Rosicrucian groups, each of which declares that it is closest to the original.

2.  Masonry

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

Freemasonry is an international movement aimed at spiritual improvement of the personality and brotherhood of people of different religions, nationalities and views. Some researchers suggest that Freemasonry comes from the associations of builders who built the pyramids in Egypt, others argue that the movement dates back to the late 16th - early 17th century from the building associations of masons.

Be that as it may, now Freemasonry is spread all over the world and is represented in various organizational forms - lodges, grand lodges, supreme councils, chapters, Areopagas, consistories, federations and confederations. The total number of representatives of this movement in the world is estimated at 4,000,000 people.

Their regular meetings, the Masons perform in a ritualistic style. They use special signs and handshakes to reveal themselves to other possible Masons. The signs depend on the box and are often changed and updated. This protects groups from outsiders who wish to enter the box. Masons wear special stylized clothes worn by freemasons in the Middle Ages. The most famous item in the wardrobe is an apron.

To become a mason, you should recommend (in some cases 3 times) a person already in the box. You must be more than 18 years old, and you must be educated enough. Many religions are prohibited from joining this order, for example, the Roman Catholic Church, betrays such people anathema. Read more...

1.  Skull and Bones

Top Ten Most Secret Societies of the World

"Skull and bones" is a secret society of students at Yale University, formerly known as the "Brotherhood of Death." It is the oldest university secret society in the United States. It was organized in 1832 and uses similar rituals to Freemasonry, to this day. Its participants meet every Thursday and Sunday, in a building they call the "Tomb".

The names of people who are members of the society have never been kept secret until the 1970s. It is known that Bush, father and son, the Rockefellers, as well as many representatives of the higher elite of the US were its members.

Interestingly, some suggest that the CIA consists entirely of the participants in the order. However, in 2007, the Central Intelligence Agency issued an official statement that it had nothing to do with the Skull and the Bones Society.
