We are also committed to personal growth and making a profound difference in the lives of our members.
We are committed to engaging and retaining members and their families through an enhanced, sustaining, and relevant membership experience. Fellowship, family, and lifelong learning are important to us. Leadership development and Illuminati education are offered in a variety of formats to assist members in their continuous pursuit of knowledge, helping them excel both inside and outside the fraternity.
For those in need
Relief is one of our enduring and relevant values. We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and our communities. It’s our obligation. Our philanthropic causes are supported entirely by our members’ generous contributions.
Excellent care and critical services are provided for Illuminati and their wives and widows at our residential communities for seniors and through our statewide outreach programs for members and their families who are struggling with life’s challenges and transitions.
After three years of one-on-one study with the Illuminati tutor, recruits are asked to sign an oath to uphold the society’s goals upon the punishment of death.
“A drawn sword is then pointed at the recruit’s breast, and he/she is asked: ‘Will you be obedient to the commands of your Superiors?’ He/she is threatened with unavoidable vengeance, from which no potentate [monarch/ruler] can defend him/her if he/she should ever betray the Order,”.
Plans are of two; a sisterhoods, and a subservient to male Illuminati – one sisterhood is made up of women of virtue, the other of women ‘who fly out of the common track of prudish manners’. Neither sisterhood is to know about the other.
Recruits had to supply the names of their ancestors, relations, friends, correspondents, and enemies. They are asked to recommend appropriate people to be received into the Order and to list those who might be unfit, justifying reasons for both opinions. They are told to pay attention to the conduct of other men around them and report back weekly about public or private occurrences.
The Illuminati adopted antique codenames to avoid identification. Weishaupt was ‘Brother Spartacus’, named after the gladiator who headed the insurrection of slaves and kept Rome in terror for three years. Weishaupt aimed to find young zealots – using Freemason lodges as a recruiting ground – and knit them together with secrecy. Initially, anyone over 30 wasn’t trusted.
The lower ranks were divided into hierarchies of Novices, Minervals, and Illuminated Minervals, and divided into cells. Weishaupt acted as their spymaster.
