The Church now enjoyed the authority and money to sanction whichever warrior-king it deemed most beneficial to its own aims and purposes. Great coronation ceremonies were performed with the Pope anointing his ‘chosen’ ones using variations of the now familiar Saturnian and Jovian rituals – and the people couldn’t get enough.
Charlemagne, Otto the Great and Barbarossa were just some of the luminaries sanctified as genuine Bluebloods by the all-powerful priest-king Pope. Once the formal, yet sanitized blood-rituals had been performed for the benefit of an ignorant public, Illuminated Ones would lead the newly crowned Bluebloods away to initiate them into the real stuff behind the scenes.
As the Middle Ages ground on, children started to disappear in ever greater numbers.
Of course, mass blood sacrifices in the form of useless wars continued to be a feature under the Holy Roman Empire just as it had been under the old Imperial order. These were christened Wars of the Cross, or Crusades, and they didn’t stop with attacks on those holding the old Holy Land of Palestine. Any perceived enemy of the Church, and therefore the Nicolaitans, who had land to be seized was deemed worthy of the attentions of a Crusade, the bloodier the better.
True to form, Mystery Babylon continued its work behind the scenes apace and a particularly sordid event during the Crusades goes to illustrate the symbiotic relationship between money and power and the role of the merchant banker class in subverting the authority of even an institution that had become as powerful as the Church.
WANT TO UNDERSTAND the Babylonian origins of the modern Church, Two Babylons is the classic study in the links between modern church ritual and symbolism and the religion of Nimrod.
With its power base now fully consolidated in the great trading city states of Florence and Genoa, Mystery Babylon’s Illuminated Ones continued to promote arms trafficking, the ancient drug trade of Sodom and Gomorrah and a trade in slaves. Monies from these dubious activities was reinvested into the practise of money lending at rates of usurious interest thus allowing the merchant bankers to establish great houses of commerce through the laundering of drug and arms trafficking profits. It was a highly convenient commercial model that was to last in one form or another up till the present day.
The slave trade, both its sexual and indentured variants, played a vital role in funding the acquisition of drugs from Mystery Babylon’s far-eastern contacts. These contacts were so sophisticated that it was believed by some of the more impressionable crusaders that the Holy Roman Empire enjoyed a secret relationship with a nominally Christian kingdom hidden deep in the depths of Asia. The kingdom was thought to be the domain of one Prester John and it was hoped, by the naïve cannon fodder of the Cross, that he would soon join them in their campaigns to defeat the Muslim Caliphate
Prestor John never did come. His opium, however, did.
Though the Holy Roman Empire’s economy was now very dependant on the financially lubricating effects of arms and drug trafficking, it was still difficult for the Pope to look the other way when confronted by some of Mystery Babylon’s more egregious and un-Christian activities. The enduring legacy of the anti-banker doctrines of Jesus were still an important part of the Papal claim to divine legitimacy, a factor not lost on some card-carrying Christians who were finding it increasingly difficult to reconcile the Church’s pronouncements with its actions.
So when a crowd of some thirty thousand children took up the improbable call to travel to the holy land and convert the Muslim infidels with love, things did not sit well with the general public when these kids were promptly sold into slavery by the very same merchant bankers the Church was now heavily indebted to.
The merchant bankers didn’t really understand what all the fuss was about. But a few warrior-kings, themselves heavily in debt to these creatures, certainly did understand the implications and quickly realised it as an opportunity to morally extricate themselves from Mystery Babylon’s growing web of debt-based financial slavery.
Events came to head and the Illuminated Ones were caught napping on an auspicious Friday 13th when the Church and the debt-riddled warrior-king of France made their move on one of Mystery Babylon’s flagship enterprises, the Knights Templar. The Church accused the Templars of, amongst other things, obscene rituals and homosexuality, but the true motive for the attack is evident in the charges of financial corruption, fraud, and secrecy.
Ironically, and considering their responsibility for so many contrived wars substituting as blood-sacrifice rituals, the Illuminated Ones suddenly found themselves the target of a Church inspired blood-sacrifice ritual called the Albigensian Crusade. They quickly retreated underground, some by burying themselves in the deepest recesses of the Church itself, while others took up the quiet life of respectable mystery school adepts practised in the art of funny handshakes. Deep within the shadows, though, the sex rituals and murder rites continued as a new wave of secret societies were established to carry Mystery Babylon’s torch.
The Church understood this, and emboldened by their successes against the Knights Templar went on to purge Illuminated Ones from amongst existing bluebloods now dependant on the Church for their privileged positions. Chief amongst those purged was a particularly loathsome blueblood called Gilles de Rais.
A serial murderer of hundreds of children, Gilles de Rais was the former brother-in-arms to the convicted and now dead witch Joan of Arc. An exceedingly wealthy man in his own right, de Rais was dragged into the limelight by the Church and exposed for the demonic sadistic killer that he was in private. At the height of his trial it was revealed that his horrific penchant for the torture, mutilation and murder of children was actually the pretext for ritualistic rites with strong occult themes. A thoroughly revolted public expressed its abject horror over the affair, and the Illuminated Ones found themselves going into full damage control. (see Ritual Child Murder – Part 1 for more on Gilles de Rais)
However, the Gilles de Rais episode turned out to be a hidden blessing for the Illuminated agenda. The Church’s gambit began to backfire when doubts started to surface amongst Gilles de Rais’ blueblood brethren as to whether or not the priest-king Pope had overstepped the mark. The newly established underground secret societies of the Illuminated Ones began to see a surreptitious increase in membership from the ranks of the nobility while children continued to disappear in ever greater numbers.
By this time it’s hoped the reader will have noticed the clear connection between the activities of ritual-based secret societies and the growing trend in disappearing children down through the ages. It is important to understand this connection because we now come to that part of the story in which the ever bizarre nature of the elitist agenda and its Saturnian legacy serves to launch what is the modern age.
With the wholesale destruction of what had been the Knights Templar and the subsequent purging of various Illuminated Ones throughout the Holy Roman Empire, a watershed in relations had been reached between the powers of Mystery Babylon and the Nicolaitan-dominated institution of the priest-king Pope. The merchant bankers had grown restless under the threat of Papal retribution and believed it was high time to reassert themselves like they had once done on the plains of Dura in old Babylon.
With this as our backdrop, we now move to view the consequences of what the history books call the Great Inquisition and the subsequent Reformation and Counter-Reformation periods. In the context of this story these periods marked the beginnings of a concerted push by the hidden powers-that-be to re-establish the notion of a global society based on occult and alchemical traditions dating to the Babel epoch. The day of the Nation State was about to dawn in the Age of Iron. This then is the subject of part two in this darkly fascinating journey that is the Saturnian legacy.
