The 1623 Shakespeare First Folio: A Baconian-Rosicrucian-Freemasonic Illusion


Recommended Posts

Bacon as Quirinus (Spearman) Pallas Athena (Shaker of the Spear) & Apollo (Leader of the Muses)

In the final elegy his friend, the poet and dramatist Thomas Randolph, one of Ben Jonson’s ‘sons’ equates Bacon with Quirinus revealing and confirming for those with eyes to see that Bacon is Shakespeare:

See! how plentiful the flood! I acknowledge these for genuine Muses and their tears. One Helicon will scarce equal them; Parnassus, not covered by Deucalion’s flood, will, wonderful to say, be hidden beneath these waters...When he perceived that the arts were held by no roots, and like seed scattered on the surface of the soil were withering away, he taught the Pegasean arts to grow, as grew the spear of Quirinus [Spear/Spearman; i.e., Shakespeare] swiftly into a laurel tree. Therefore since he has taught the Heliconian goddesses to flourish no lapse of ages shall dim his glory. The ardour of his noble heart could bear no longer that you, divine Minerva [Pallas Athena the Shaker of the Spear who wore a helmet which rendered her invisible], should be despised. His godlike pen restored your wonted honour and as another Apollo [leader of the Nine Muses presiding over the different kinds of poetry and liberal arts] dispelled the clouds that hid you.

The Fama & The Universal Reformation of the Whole World

In 1614 there appeared the first anonymous Rosicrucian manifesto the Fama Fraternitatis published at Cassel in Germany entitled Allgemeine und General Reformation, der gantzen weiten Welt. Beneben der Fama Fraternitatis, dess Loblichen Ordens des Rosenkreutzes, an alle gelehrte und Haupter Europae geschrieben (Universal and General Reformation of the Whole Wide World; together with the Fama Fraternitatis of the Laudable Fraternity of the Rosy Cross, written to all the Learned and Rulers of Europe). 

The volume contains a translation of the 77th Advertisement from the Ragguagli di Parnasso and the Fama as well as a reply from Adam Haselmeyer saying that he had seen a manuscript copy of the Rosicrucian manifesto some four years earlier. Very deliberately the secret Founding Father of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood and author of the anonymous Fama Fraternitatis in an unequalled masterstroke to deflect attention away from himself and its secret English origins, to further misdirect the eye, arranged for its publication in Germany.

The Rosicrucian Confessio

C. The volume contains Consideratio brevis by Philip a Gabella, a preface to the Confessio, and the Confessio Fraternitatis written across fourteen chapters.

Francis Rosicrosse

The secret anonymous authorship of the two Rosicrucian manifestos the Fama and Confessio were cryptically revealed by Dr John Wilkins, the warden of Wadham College, Oxford, Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, and afterwards first Secretary of the Rosicrucian Royal Society, in his work entitled Mathematicall Magick. While discussing subterranean lamps the Baconian disciple and Rosicrucian Brother Dr Wilkins makes the following remarkable statement:

‘Such a lamp is likewise related to be seen in the sepulchre of Francis Rosicrosse, as is more largely expressed in the confession of that fraternity.’

John Wilkins, Mathematicall Magick Or, The Wonders That May be performed by Mechanical Geometry (London: printed by M. F. for Sa. Gellibrand, 1648), pp. 236-37

The lamp is referred to in the Fama not the Confessio, an artful Rosicrucian device employed by Dr Wilkins to draw attention to a passage in which the Christian name of Bacon, ‘Francis’ is directly aligned with the Brotherhood of the Rose Cross, ‘Rosicrosse’, in relation to its two manifestos at once indicating two profound secrets: Francis Bacon was the Founding Father of the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross and the concealed author of its two manifestos the Fame and the Confession

The portrait seems to be an 18th?-19th? century reworking of Jacobus Houbraken's 1738 reworking of the 1617 Simon van der Passe original.

Curious, the 1617 and later versions do not look similar. The center image has the hat sitting in a way we all know. It was not a rework of the 1617 painting was it? It matches more to the 1618 painting yet reversed horizontally.

Hi L-o-T

I just realised the same thing, it's not from the Simon van der Passe. I agree it's probably from a reversed engraved copy of the Gorhambury portrait by Paul van Somer. So thanks for the correction.

Thank you, Eric for the thoroughly researched and accurate portraits from Bacon's life you offered to SirBacon.org!

THE OLD POST FF.jpg

I just saw this now. Neat trailer, but I have to say that by revealing your position on the Bacon/Shakespeare debate before you say anything of your book is likely to turn away viewers who would otherwise have continued reading to find an answer to the great question. You could have said something like, "Who is that lurking behind the mask? Will his name rewrite history? To find out for yourself, look no further..."

Royal Society Prime Mover Francis Bacon

A few years after the Baconian-Rosicrucian-Freemasonic Royal Society was formed in the second half of the seventeenth century with Dr Wilkins appointed its first secretary, its official historian Thomas Sprat published The History of the Royal Society with a very important frontispiece. 

At its centre it depicts a bust of King Charles II, with William Brouncker, its first president to his right, and on his left Francis Bacon, the Founding Father of the Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood. Its prime mover Lord Bacon is sitting under the prominent winged angel holding a trumpet which alludes to his first Rosicrucian manifesto the Fama Fraternitatis that ends with ‘Sub Umbra Alarum Tuarum Jehova’ (‘under the shadow of Jehova’s wings’):


‘The first impression is the Masonic pavement in the forefront of the picture. It pushes towards the viewer so that it cannot be ignored. All Masons are told about the black and white chequered floorof the lodge room…
 The compasses and squares, of which there are four compasses and three squares in the plate, are described in Masonic ritual as follows: ‘The compasses and square, when united regulate our lives and our 
actions. The compasses belong to the Grand Master in particular and the square to the whole craft.’… 
   Finally there is the positioning of the three figures. The seating of the officers of a lodge of Freemasons is very carefully controlled. Charles is placed as the Grand Master in the East, with the light of the rising sun 
behind him. Brouncker is placed in the seat of the senior working officer while Bacon is placed in the seat of the immediate Past Master.…Bacon…is [also] shown in the frontispiece…wearing the jewel and collar 
of a Chaplain of the Lodge of Edinburgh.’

Science

The Stage-Player

The second Rosicrucian manifesto the Confessio Fraternitatis contains a piece of devastating information not mentioned by Stratfordian authorities, orthodox Shakespeare biographers, editors or commentators. Its secret anonymous author Bacon points out how easily the so-called learned or learned fools, and the rest of the credulous world, are easily deceived with enigmas and illusions. One of them being of his own creation, which has misled and beguiled the sleepy universities and academia around the globe for centuries:  

‘For conclusion of our Confession we must earnestly admonish you, that you cast away, if not all, yet most of the worthless books of pseudo chymists, to whom it is a jest to apply the Most Holy Trinity to vain things, or to deceive men with monstrous symbols and enigmas, or to profit by the curiosity of the credulous; our age doth produce many such, one of the greatest being a stage-player, a man with sufficient ingenuity for imposition; [my italics] such doth the enemy of human welfare mingle among the good seed, thereby to make the truth more difficult to be believed, which in herself is simple and naked, while falshood is proud, haughty, and coloured with a lustre of seeming godly and humane wisdom.’

Wonderful insights, A.P. Many thanks! The line about the imposter-stage player has to be a deliberate "clue", doesn't it? It seems so out of place that it highlights itself.

Bacon & His Literary Mask Shakspere

The following year 1616, the year in which Bacon’s literary mask William Shakspere died, there was published at Amsterdam a very rare Rosicrucian work. The enigmatic work contains fifty illustrations with Latin verses beneath them. Emblem 1 sees Fortune standing upon a globe (an allusion to the Globe Theatre) with one hand pushing from the pinnacle of Fame a man dressed as an actor with a feather in his hat; and the other, raising up a man wearing the familiar Bacon hat (in nearly all portraits he is presented wearing the hat of the Grand Master of the Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood), whose face is hidden. Confirmation it is Bacon comes in the form of the initial letters from the ninth line in the verse ‘Obscaenumque nimis crepuit, Fortuna Batavis Appellanda’, an anagram which yields F BACON.

Bacon & His Literary Mask Shakspere

The following year 1616, the year in which Bacon’s literary mask William Shakspere died, there was published at Amsterdam a very rare Rosicrucian work. The enigmatic work contains fifty illustrations with Latin verses beneath them. Emblem 1 sees Fortune standing upon a globe (an allusion to the Globe Theatre) with one hand pushing from the pinnacle of Fame a man dressed as an actor with a feather in his hat; and the other, raising up a man wearing the familiar Bacon hat (in nearly all portraits he is presented wearing the hat of the Grand Master of the Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood), whose face is hidden. Confirmation it is Bacon comes in the form of the initial letters from the ninth line in the verse ‘Obscaenumque nimis crepuit, Fortuna Batavis Appellanda’, an anagram which yields F BACON.

Translating just those six words, Obscaeniumque nimis crepuit, Fortuna Batavis Appellanda, roughly, I get something like this: "As the Dutch goddess of Fortune would make it known (as we might say, " ... would call it," maybe?), it smacks of the greatest obscenity." [crepo, snaps his fingers and calls to servant's attention; chats about, or, creaks, rattles, rustles. Obscaenium, too much indecency (impureness, foulness, filthiness--from which word obscenity comes). Appellanda: can mean: would address, speak to, name, mention by name, make known, make an appeal, in legal sense (appellants, appellee) or otherwise. (Cassell's Latin Dictionary). This expression is very apt, with all these possible connotations, if it is revealing a name at the same time, as you point out. A. Phoenix. I don't think I am too far off with this.

Looking up the Roman goddess Fortune, I see associations with luck, chance, fortune, but also with agricultural bounty, fertility (pregnant with meaning?). She was invoked at marriage ceremonies. Her symbols are the cornu, or horn, as in cornucopia, and the ship's rudder. Fortune relied on virtue to insure order, law, and justice. (Mike Greenberg, "Fortune...", 2/22/21, https://mythologysource.com/fortuna-goddess-of-luck/. So here, there is the hope that this Dutch publication will do him justice and set the record straight, maybe. Cornu can also mean the musical instrument "horn," like the word "cornet,"  that a herald might use ... to summon all the wits, maybe? Like the bell-ringer. Cornu itself can mean strength, courage, and can also mean helmet, stick or spar. Cornum or cornus is a spear made of cornel-cherry wood.

Edited by Christie Waldman
to add that "appello" can mean "to appeal," in legal sense (to justice) or otherwise.
