  1. William Stone Booth, “Some Acrostic Signatures of Francis Bacon” 1909


    Bacon was ahead, not only of his own time but also of the present, when he wrote {De Augmentis, book vi, Spedding's translation) of the methods of teaching and of the transmission of knowledge. He styles the first difference of method Magistral, or Initiative. ' The magistral method teaches; the initiative intimates. The magistral requires that what is told should be believed; the initiative that it should be examined. The one transmits knowledge to the crowd of learners; the other to the sons, as it were, of science. The end of the one is the use of knowledges, as they are now; of the other the continuation and further progression of them. Of these methods the latter seems to be like a road abandoned and stopped up; for as knowledges have hitherto been delivered, there is a kind of contract of error be- tween the deliverer and the receiver; for he who delivers knowledge desires to deliver it in such form as may be best believed, and not as may be most conveniently examined; and he who receives know- ledge desires present satisfaction, without waiting for due enquiry and so rather not to doubt, than not to err; glory making the deliverer careful not to lay open his weakness, and sloth making the receiver unwilling to try his strength.'

    Scientifically speaking, there can be no such thing as orthodox or unorthodox scholarship. Such phrases belong to the bygone age of the ecclesiastical pedagogue. The man who allows his inferences to crystallize  into an ' orthodox opinion ' is on the highroad to oblivion, or is courting the ridicule of posterity. Literary history is a science. It is a matter of facts, No lasting history can be built on opinion, and no scholarship which is afraid of enquiry can retain respect.

     

     

    A Shout Out  that basically says : Master Boteswain ! (Bacon)

    A boatswain, bo's'n, bos'n, or bosun, also known as a deck boss, or a qualified member of the deck department, is the most senior rate of the deck department and is responsible for the components of a ship's hull. The boatswain supervises the other members of the ship's deck department, and typically is not a watchstander, except on vessels with small crews. Additional duties vary depending upon ship, crew, and circumstances.Wikipedia

  3. PREFACE  TO :

    1. Bacon Shakespeare and Cervantes by Alfred Von Weber-Ebenhof

    The Shakespeare and Cervantes celebrations of the year 1916 have furnished the proof that with regard to the true significance of both of these world-famous names, doubt and fog exist in public opinion, to clear away which is the important task of the present time.

    When it is considered that the world-renowned works as­sociated with both names are compositions of first rank

    which possess the highest value for the spiritual uplift of mankind, it can be with confidence asserted that here without doubt we have the greatest literary-historical question of to-day, which must lay claim to the liveliest Interest of every cultured person.

    To a desire to make the result of studies to that end useful to widest circles, to spur to broader inquiry those who are of similar mind and to break a path for the formation of a group aiming at this, the foregoing sug­gestions owe their origin.

    In this sense, without prejudice, critically and bene­volently, may they be received.

    THE AUTHOR.

    I have run into a few men who told me they are some level up in Freemasony, overt public members with jewelry and stickers on their cars, who tell me that there is no Shakespeare connection to Freemasons.

    Others write books on that subject (Dodd comes to mind).

    Richard Wagner is a Freemason who speaks opening about the Shakespeare connections and has written much about it as well.

    Isn't it interesting the wide range of ideas out there. 😉

     

    'There is no Shakespeare connection to Freemasons.'

    "It is an immense ocean that surrounds the island of Truth."  -Francis Bacon

    I've met my share of "Laurel & Hardy" type Freemasons that have more interest in Casino Nights with their brethren than studying Alfred Dodd's works https://sirbacon.org/downloads/Dodd-Alfred-Shakespeare-Creator-of-Freemasonry.pdf and George Tudhope's Bacon-Masonry    https://sirbacon.org/tudhope.htm.  They just need the right oars in the water to begin the journey thru the Pillars of Hercules.

      A great  gap exists that is Lodged in their history and closed attitude.  The right response from them would be  : " we don't know and would be open to an advancement in learning, so where can we be directed to read a worthy brother's work on the matter?"

    Lawrence Gerald       Mr. Gerald, my statement was quite correct and I am shocked that someone like yourself, with such an obviously incomplete and faulty comprehension of the Oxford case, should think it prudent to contradict me on such flimsy evidence. Unlike you, I will not try in this context to offer a summary that would require several books to complete. Most importantly, beyond the obvious discrepancy in the quantity and quality of evidence between the two theories, there is the small matter that compelling arguments against your theory, set forth in some cases more than a hundred years ago, by Robertson (style), Cole (patterns of Bible allusion), and Spurgeon (image patterns) all contradict your belief and have not to my knowledge ever been answered by advocates of it. Finally, would it be too much to ask you to stop making statements like "a person in your position"? That is really not, as I'm sure Alexander Waugh would say, "cricket." It is really just a disguised ad hominem, apparently compensating for a lack of research on your part. Good day.Write some books or articles. This matter will not be settled on youtube. https://shake-speares-bible.com/

    " Shakespeare's Imagery and what it tells us"  Book by Professor Caroline Sturgeon, Stratfordian

    "I have not to my knowledge ever been answered by advocates of it." Roger Stritmatter, Oxfordian

     

    Reply to an Oxfordian, Roger Stritmatter, who conveniently uses a Stratfordian Professor,  Caroline Spurgeon's  short sighted book on Image Patterns and Shakespeare that instead ends up vaildating Bacon's imagery being Shakespearean and not negating it.

     

    @Roger Stritmatter 

    In 1969 two writers  in Baconiana  set the record straight on  Professor Spurgeon's book on Shakespeare Imagery. Spurgeon  has an Image Problem. "In seeking Shakespeare she has discovered Bacon. " https://sirbacon.org/spurgeon.htm

    The irony for me is that Dominion Voting Systems used to be called Diebold  Voting Systems. The machines were demonstrated to have extra software, or would set up to dsyfunction, easily hacked and were slanted to give George Bush Jr the Presidential  nod in certain voting districts. The CEO of Diebold  was outspoken about being a big Republican fundraiser. Diebold was sued, then changed their name to Dominion.

    "Nathan Gibbs wonders, “Why would you buy a voting machine from a company like Diebold which provides a paper trail for every single machine it makes except its voting machines? And then, when you ask it to verify its numbers, it hides behind ‘trade secrets.’”

    Maybe the Diebold decision makes sense, if you believe, to paraphrase Henry Kissinger, that democracy is too important to leave up to the votes of the people."

        Suprisingly Fox didn't bring up Dominion's  nefarious past.

  10.  @Ron Roffel  Pedigree is one thing but lack of character is another something Edward de Vere is missing. Alan Nelson makes this abundantly clear in "Monstrous Adversary." The Play "All's Well That Ends Well" also bears this out on DeVere's misogyny. https://sirbacon.org/oxfordallswell.htm
     

     

     

     @EMETH ALETHEIA  Unlike Baconians, Oxfordians use many documents and many forms of evidence to establish their case. It is quite true that the the 1632 memorials to Bacon are full of his praises. But it has also long ago been established that Bacon's prose style, his pattern of images, and his use of the Bible, are quite distinct from Shakespeare's. Whatever his role in "Shakespeare" was, beyond being Jonson's close friend and Oxford's "cousin" (as he refers to him in surviving correspondence), he did not write the plays and poems.
     

     

     @Lawrence Gerald  Citing Alan Nelson about Oxford's character is like citing Donald Trump about constitutional law.
     

     

    "Unlike Baconians, Oxfordians use many documents and many forms of evidence to establish their case." A most misleading statement made by someone in your position who should know better. The Bacon-Shakespeare Manuscript formerly known as the Northumberland Manuscript along with Bacon's Shakespeare Notebook The Promus are documents that establish Bacon's bond with evidence of his authorship. Bacon referred to himself as a " Concealed Poet." The 1626 Eulogies or memorials known as "Manes Verulamani" reveal what Bacon's peers (along with Ben Jonson) knew and thought by highly acknowledging Bacon's dramatic and poetic abilities. Years later the poet Percy Shelley said ‘Lord Bacon was a Poet’, apparently without ever having considered the authorship question. In case your not familiar with the Bacon Documents see : The Bacon Shakespeare Manuscript https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDn8gdBqnIM and Francis Bacon's Notebook, The Promus, the Source for Hundreds of Parallels with his Shakespeare Works written in Bacon's hand BEFORE the plays were performed and published. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTfUbKb7KqU

  11. Liked "nor so in his bloated and tedious The Baconian Heresy a work marred by selective suppression and gross misrepresentation of the facts and the evidence. "

    Thanks AP for saying it the way it is.

     

    Stratfordians like to refer back on Robertson's very  low calorie book as evidence to support their Blind stupidity while demonstrating The Four Idols in action

    Hi Lawrence - Love the graphic. Very funny indeed. If only it were true. The guy drives me nuts!

    Thou Standeth Before a  Mystery.

    Waugh just demonstrated how he is  a FRaud and conveniently blind to who  Ben Jonson was lauding.  

    He gaslights The Four Idols with his own brand of pomposity and reality distortion .  He may have more Nobleman "gas" in his tank  then  the poor Edward de Vere who  was infamously banished for letting one slip by in front of the Queen.

    Oxfordians desperately need to show that Ben Jonson was in their camp and this can be seen in the disaster film "Annoymous" aka "Erroneous" by  director Roland Emmerich, who decided to fictionalize that Ben Jonson and DeVere  were collaborators. This  distortion  of the historical reality    contaminates the minds of their naive followers in order to maintain and uphold their authority as redeemers of the authorship. But all they are doing is replacing one outdated tradition with a very flawed candidate.  

    We all know that Ben Jonson held the greatest esteem for Francis Bacon and his book "Discoveries" bears this out. He would not have written these remarks about his  "Chief" unless he knew him intimately while protecting the  mystery surrounding his true identity.
