Thanks for the heads up. Well, this is sort of my point.
At last you can read it for yourself and decide whether he was a “rockstar” or not. It’s more of the postscript to the group. Oops, thanks for the clarification. Seems I misread your original post. Aww shucks, I would love to have those workings. Chris, I understand your concern. Here was a chance to do the Illuminati writings up right, and we have bupkis. I have access to the Illuminati rituals in German, and I will publish excerpts from them in a book I am preparing on the Illuminati.
I’ll be focusing on 1 their real history, and 2 the bizarre afterlife they have had in conspiracy theory. Will discuss this from the point of view of the psychology of conspiracy and, especially, the psychology of religion.
Looking for an agent, and a mainstream publisher. Suggestions may be sent to me directly!
Diogenes’ Lamp by Adam Weishaupt c Masonic Book Masons | #
I hope you are enjoying Masonic Week. This year, some unfortunate family matters involving my mother’s passing have taken priority. I hope to see you there next year.
Best regards ciogenes all in the meanwhile.
That’s too bad that its an amateurish production. Maybe it will spur the market to produce more scholarly editions of the Illuminati texts. I would think every patriotic American would be interested in the Illuminati because we’re in some sense Weishaupt’s only real success.
We’re a proof of concept that a country can be run without relying on Churches or Monarchies. Weishaupt’s philosophy was really quite boring and dry.
I have a French translation of one of his books here, Discours philosophique sur les frayeurs de la mort [Ueber die Schrecken des Todes: I also have the German text to his last degree of Doceten Man King: Docetist which, although interesting in that it is contains elements of gnosticism, it’ll put you right to sleep. The Diogenes book is not authentic “Illuminati” writings; it is authentic, boring, indulgent Weishauptian philosophy. Apparently, his anti-Kantian polemics were quite the rage in Popularphilosophen circles, though.
As the Diogenes book was going to print, Mark emailed me out of the blue. I told him that out of all the published works by Weishaupt, he could have done better.
If your going to get someone to translate a Weishaupt book, I am under the impression that Pythagoras oder Ueber die geheime Welt- und Regierungskunst [Pythagoras, or Considerations on the Secret Art of Diplomacy and Government] Frankfurt am Mainwould be the one to go for. By the way, Chris, what ever did you mean by “Abbe Barruel’s descriptions of Robison’s description Although they speculated a lot, and have been castigated by masons and academia, Barruel was more thorough and precise than Robison.
Barruel translated whole swaths hundreds of pages of the Original Writings. And the only Illuminati scholar to check on his work for accuracy, Rene Le Forestier, grudgingly gave him his due. Robison, on the other hand, translation-wise is close to inept; and Le Forestier has a field day with him.
How long did you have to wait for the book to be delivered to you after you ordered it? Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don’t recognize you or if I’m in a grumpy mood.
Sunday, February 08, Masonic Book Club: Illuminati Weishaupt’s “Diogenes Lamp”. I stumbled in late last night from Kodiak, Alaska and eagerly tore into the box that arrived from the Masonic Book Club.
Actually, two boxes, for somehow Weisuaupt received two copies neither one numbered as in the past 30 some years. The selection was no surprise, as I had heard about it some time ago: I am not really about trashing the work of others, and if someone has done good solid weihaupt and been a little sloppy in its presentation, I’m not such a tweedy, patches-on-the-elbows sort of critic who snorts insults through my tendrils of pipe smoke.
But the truth is that this volume is a disgrace. The two introductory sections are written by “Sir knight Mark Bruback.
Lanp he would have done service to readers by discussing in a rational diiogenes the modern day Illuminati accusations of alarmists like Weishzupt LaRouche and David Icke, referring to them only as Mr. Icky is appallingly juvenile. There is no explanation about “Sir knight Mark’s” role in bringing this text to light, other than a brief dioyenes to his procuring the German translation services of Amelia Gill, or why he was chosen to write this appalling introduction He does explain it a bit on his MySpace site.
Indeed, it would have been nice to know Ms. Gill’s background and translating experience, because Bruback’s errors and inappropriate goofiness call into question the accuracy of the Weishaupt text adsm. And Bruback’s inclusion of lines from Aleister Crowley’s Thelema writings for no apparent reason adds an OTO Ordo Templi Orientis element to the book that comes totally out of left field.
One of the biggest benefits of the previous editions from the MBC was the production of hard-to-find older works, enlightened by a modern, well-written preface. By publishing this volume under the imprint of the Masonic Book Club, it calls into question their editorial judgement and expertise in a very big way. And could they have picked a more unreadable typeface to print this in? The Bavarian Illuminati writings have never been available in English, as incredible as that may seem.
Bear in mind that “Die Leuchte Des Diogenes” was originally published in in Regensburg, long after Weishaupt was chased out of Bavaria and the Illuminati was exposed as a group of anti-clerical and anti-monarchial revolutionaries who were infiltrating Masonic lodges.

Their organizational documents were well publicized by the Bavarian government again, we have no English translations of these, even though they exist. So Diogenes Lamp may simply be Weishaupt’s weepings on what might have been, and why the Illuminati was really just a lovable bunch of harmless fuzzballs.
The text of the work itself turns out to be—nothing special. It is a distillation of Enlightenment philosophy, relying on quotations from other writers and philosophers and darlings of the period.
No irony that Weishaupt would have more kamp a few quotes from Shakespeare’s “misunderstood” characters of King Richard II and Brutus, given his recent troubles in his home country. But weisgaupt with a problem of this edition: I know there are texts that actually lay out the Illuminati’s rituals and organizational structure that researchers would love to zdam available in English and not just John Robison’s descriptions of them, or Albert Mackey’s and Doogenes Barruel’s descriptions of Robison’s descriptions The Illuminati has been erroneously tied to the Freemasons by anti-Masonic critics for years, and I was applauding the publication of this book before I saw it.
The good news is that we at last have the first book of authentic Illuminati writings translated into English. The bad news is it’s this one. Robin Carr retired last year from the Masonic Book Club, and I realize there’s a steep learning curve for any new management team. And the publishing business weishapt its own special hurdles to overcome. One of the biggest raps against the club over the years was the total lack of communication to members.
You simply sent in your money, and eventually a book would come. Hopefully, this will be addressed, and I hope next year’s selection is an improvement over this one. The Masonic Book Club has a good reputation from the past, but this volume is a step backwards.
