Abbe Augustin Barruel’s Publishes his 4-Volume Study, ‘Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism’

Abbe Augustin Barruel’s publishes his impressive four-volume study, ‘Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism’, covering the same matter and basically coming to the same conclusions having no knowledge of Robison’s book, Proofs of Conspiracy’ published just one year earlier.

According to a joint deposition signed by Professor Renner and his three colleagues, the object of the first degrees of Illuminism was to train the adepts in the system of espionage. Once the member had so committed himself to such nefarious acts of espionage, treason, or other treacherous enterprises, he remained in a state of perpetual dread, fearing his superiors might at some time reveal the criminal activity, the four academicians testified.” Barruel attributes this quote to Weisapt, founder of the Illuminati; “When Princes and Nations shall disappear from off the face of the earth! Yes, a time shall come when man shall acknowledge no other law but the great book of nature; this revelation shall be the work of Secret Societies and that is one of our grand mysteries.”
