Albert Pike was born in Boston on December 29, 1809. He studied at Harvard and later served as a Brigadier-General in the Confederate Army. It has been said that Pike was a genius and able to read and write in 16 different languages. Yet, he was also widely accused of plagiarism, which could make these claims questionable.
Pike was a 33rd degree Mason and one of the founding fathers of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. He was a top leader in the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859 until his death in 1891.
Pike was also known to be a Satanist who indulged in the occult. He supposedly possessed a bracelet in which he summoned Lucifer, with whom he had constant communication. He was also the Grand Master of a Luciferian group known as the Order of the Palladium, founded in Paris in 1737.
Albert Pike met Giuseppe Mazzini, a 33rd degree Mason and head of a secret society called the Illuminati, which means “Enlightened Ones”. Mazzini enticed Pike into the Illuminati with his plan to offer membership to the secret “society within a society” once a mason made it to the top of the Freemason ladder. Some of the Illuminati’s many aims include the abolishment of Christianity, the overturn of all civil government and the creation of a one world government.
Pike was fascinated by the Illuminati’s idea of a one world government, so he agreed to write a ritual tome that guided the transition from the average high-ranking mason into a top-ranking Illuminati 33rd degree mason. In 1871, Pike published the 861 page Masonic handbook known as “The Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.” Since most modern day Freemasons never reach the 30th degree of Freemasonry, they are not aware of these hidden motives and therefore strongly deny the evil aim of this fraternity.
It was Leo Taxil, around 1892, who first claimed that there was a letter written by Pike to Mazzini. This letter was later mentioned in a book by Cardinal Caro y Rodriguez of Santiago, Chile, “The Mystery of Freemasonry Unveiled,” 1925. In his book, Rodriquez claimed that Pike’s letter was on display in The British Museum Library, London, England. But the British Museum confirmed in writing to researcher Michael Haupt that such a document was never in their possession.
