To The Memorie of the deceased Authour Maister W. Shakespeare by Leonard Digges & the Rosicrucian-Freemasonic Stratford Monument commissioned by Francis Bacon


Recommended Posts

To this Freemasonic masterpiece Leonard Digges contributed the commendatory verse:

It will be observed that the first line of the verse contains 39 letters F. Bacon in simple cipher and the last line contains 33 letters Bacon in simple cipher.

The Stratford Monument

The verse contains the earliest known reference to the Stratford Monument so beloved of orthodox Shakespeare scholars. However, if we examine it more closely, we are able to discern that Digges (who is privy to the secret Bacon is the concealed author of the Shakespeare works) in a Rosicrucian-Freemasonic method of delivery hints at the truth. He tell us that his works will out-live this carefully crafted illusion and when ‘Time dissolues thy Stratford Monimentthe hidden truth will be revealed to the world, or in Bacon’s words, printed on the title page of his Rosicrucian New Atlantis (Or, Land of the Rosicrucians), ‘In time the hidden truth will be revealed’.

The No Name Monument

It appears that the Stratford monument was erected sometime before 1623. The monument is attached to the north wall of the chancel in Holy Trinity Church overlooking the presumed grave of William Shakspere, which bears an epitaph, but remarkably no name.

The Beguiling Memorial

It is somewhat remarkable that four centuries later the whole phalanx of orthodox Shakespeare scholars who have written countless thousands of works on Shakspere of Stratford have not produced a shred of evidence or shed any light on who was responsible for commissioning the Stratford monument, yet as we shall see, what is in effect a beguiling Rosicrucian-Freemasonic memorial, was secretly commissioned by Francis Bacon.

Hi A Phoenix,

Here is a thought that occured to me as I was looking at your slide.

There are twenty-six lines in total (26 = B.F. or F. BACO.)

The poem is 22 lines long.

Let's take the 11th verse from the top and the 11th verse from the bottom ( that is the 12th verse from the top ) :

11 + 12 = 33 = BACON , and these two verses are in the Middle of  L. Digges' Poem.

Here is one suggestion ...

The use of the New Atlantis cover illustration to prop up a suggestion that there is some unspecified secret to be revealed is again exploiting the possibilities. This illustration does not say that any such mystery has to do with the many secrets that people might assume are involved. 

Let me just say that going off on tangents is avoiding discussing the obvious. The image is concerning the raising of the dead from the underworld (Sheol), and that is entirely in line with the Christian idea (as opposed to the ancient Hebrew idea) that it is at this moment in unspecified time that the great secret of what happens to you after your death is revealed (remember death). If it was to be a queen then that would lead to her gaining her new celestial position while waiting the return. The mystery is in fact tied to the mystery of the Rosy Cross which speaks of the great love of God for his faithful, his return and the resurrection of the dead. It is consistently attested to in the imagery in many places.

There is a potential twofold meaning in the stressing of time, because time is the empiric quantity that is required to unlock geo positioning.  The circle in this image has been shown to be divided in 12 by composition details (Dawkins shows this), and possibly 24 if those are bisected. This is akin to the dividing of the globe into as many time zones to help determine longitude (a great scientific quest at this time in history). This was not yet possible in Bacon's day. At that time celestial measurements were required to try and pin down the time variable. It was unreliable and it led to the death of many of the King and Queen's subjects. 

Leonard Digges is the son of the Thomas Digges who was the son of Leonard Digges.  He was a minor poet. His father Thomas was an astronomer. His grandfather Leonard was a great English scientist of the day who made many important contributions with the use of geometric principles. He (the younger) would have lived exactly when the frenzy around the Novas and the appearance of the Rosy Cross suggestion emerged. In fact he would have been in his prime in those year.

Bacon most likely knew of Leonard Digges the elder because his works on surveying cartography are essential readings. It is a likely start for the development of the method of Great Circle navigation which the British perfected in Tudor times.

The celestial cross is shown here coming out of the letters TAU. It is the same Rosy Cross we see in other places. The Rosy Cross is part of the story of the Rosicrucians. Those men who had an interest in the Rosy Cross may or may not have had an affiliation with Rosicrcucianism. That is still remains to be determined. We do know that the German Rosicrucians had great esteem for Bacon because of his philosophy and writings. It may be related to the fact that he helped to make a science out of the myth for them. The idea that the event has a geo component is particularly Bacon's if you ask me. A series of very useful observations made with Great Circles comes and enriches the story of the Rosy Cross as an omen for new age of scientific and social progress. By doing that it is rescuing the Novas from the doomsday interpretation that was also being imagined and suggested at this time. It makes the Rosicrucians optimists as opposed to the Lutherans' pessimism.

It is not hard to image why Bacon's ideas would have had so much appeal to Andrea and Maier.

Whoever commissioned the work is responsible for the geometric puzzle below it which involves the Rosy Cross depiction with the presence of four ARCs. That puzzle bears the signature of those who were likely part of the early Acception groups that would in time evolve to become fraternal Freemasonry. I find the geometric suggestion there is also entirely related to the idea of "going back home", where home is where you came from prior to your birth. In Biblical language your physical form is from dust to dust. Don't bother stirring up the bones looking for the poet. His spirit lives on elsewhere. It is also a return to the oneness with God (the great geometric principle) in your spiritual afterlife. I do agree that the monument has some likely proto Masonic links. It is also highly elegant and well thought out.

The tombstone engraving only helps to further complete the suggestion of who is likely involved. These are men who associated with the idea of the Holy Royal Arch which will be further edified into the Freemasonry to come as the 4th and final level of completion of the Master Mason. It tells you nothing, per se, about who wrote Shakespeare. It does suggest that Shakespeare is being promoted by these men in order that the body of work may live on. Who is behind Shakespeare is inconsequential to the Mason, because ultimately it is God who is doing the writing. The man is just the mask. It is the work of the Holy Spirit through men that is to be appreciated. Men can shape men to be more akin to God's will. The "Will" that "I" "am" is in fact suggested to be the key. You can make yourself into a worthy person by personal betterment. That is the point of the Freemasonry modeled on the Kabbalah teachings.

Hi A Phoenix

The absence of any evidence as who commissioned and donated the memorial in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford - and the absence of a name on Shakespeare's grave stone - clearly suggest a covert operation, i.e. an exercise in disinformation.

IN TIME THE HIDDEN TRUTH WILL BE REVEALED

For if a man have that penetration of judgement as he can discern what things are to be laid open, and what to be secreted, and what to be shewed at half lights and to whom and when,…

   ...There be three degrees of this hiding and veiling of a man’s self.

      For the first of these, Secrecy;…mysteries are due to secrecy….Therefore set it down, that an habit of secrecy is both politic and moral.

      For the second, which is Dissimulation; it followeth many times upon secrecy by a necessity; so that he will be secret must be a dissembler in some degree…

      But for the third degree, which is Simulation and false profession; that I hold more culpable, and less politic; except it be in great and rare matters.

                          [Spedding, ed., The Works of Francis Bacon, VI, pp. 387-89]

 Another diversity of Method there is, which hath some affinity with the former, used in some cases by the discretion of the ancients…that is, Enigmatical and Disclosed. The pretence whereof is to remove the vulgar capacities from being admitted to the secrets of knowledges, and to reserve them to selected auditors, or wits of such sharpness as can pierce the veil.

[Spedding, ed., The Works of Francis Bacon, III, pp. 404-5]

 That the discretion anciently observed, though by the precedent of many vain persons and deceivers disgraced, of publishing part, and reserving part to a private succession, and of publishing in a manner whereby it shall not be to the capacity nor taste of all, but shall as it were single and adopt his reader, is not to be laid aside, both for the avoiding of abuse in the excluded, and the strengthening of affection in the admitted.

                           [Spedding, ed., The Works of Francis Bacon, III, p. 248]

    In the months following Bacon’s apparent death Dr Rawley published Sylva Sylvarum and New Atlantis (or, Land of the Rosicrucians). Around the emblem on the title-page of the New Atlantis issued by Dr Rawley appears the following inscription ‘TEMPORE  PATET OCCVLTA VERITAS’ (In Time The Hidden Truth Will Be Revealed).1

    Around the same time his trusted Rosicrucian Brother Dr William Rawley gathered together and published a commemorative work in his honour entitled Memoriae honoratissimi Domini Francisci, Baronis de Verulamio, vice-comitis Sancti Albani sacrum, also known as the Manes Verulamiani. This rare volume contains thirty-two Latin verses in praise of Bacon which his orthodox biographers and editors have simply passed over, ignored, or suppressed, that portray Bacon as a supreme poet and dramatist, writer of comedies and tragedies, under the pseudonym of Shakespeare.  

    As revealing as the remarkable Memoriae verses already are in his address to the reader Dr Rawley plainly states that he had deliberately withheld other verses from public view:

What my Lord the right Honourable Viscount St. Alban valued most, that he should be dear to seats of learning and to men of letters, that (I believe) he has secured; since these tokens of love and memorials of sorrow prove how much his loss grieves their heart. And indeed with no stinted hand have the Muses bestowed on him this emblem (for very many poems, and the best too, I withhold from publication); but since he himself delighted not in quantity, no great quantity have I put forth. Moreover let it suffice to have laid, as it were, these foundations in the name of the present age; this fabric (I think) every age will embellish and enlarge; but to what age it is given to put the last touch, that is known to God only and the fates.2

In the final elegy Bacon’s inward friend, the poet and dramatist Thomas Randolph, one of the sons of Ben Jonson, refers to Bacon as Quirinus conveying that Bacon is our secret supreme poet and dramatist, 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.

                                             Thomas Randolph, Trinity College.3

   On the title page of the Memoriae Dr Rawley who was intimately familiar with Bacon’s various cipher systems cryptically conveyed the enciphered message in numbers which its Latin verses communicated in language. On the title page there are 83 letters above the horizontal line and 5 words below it which plus the addition of the date 1+6+2+6=15: 83+5+15=103 Shakespeare in simple cipher, elegantly yielding the arcane hidden message that Bacon is Shakespeare.

                                                  18  8  1 10  5 18 15 5 1 17 5=103

 In the years and decades that followed Dr Rawley continued to edit, translate, and publish numerous editions of his works culminating in the Resuscitatio, or, Bringing into Public Light Several Pieces, of the Works, Civil, Historical, Philosophical, & Theological, Hitherto Sleeping to which he prefixed the first English Life of Lord Bacon. In his address to the reader, in strict accordance with the precepts laid down by his Rosicrucian master, Rawley states  ‘in regard, of the Distance, of the time, since his Lordships Dayes; whereby, I shall not tread too near, upon the Heels of Truth; Or of the Passages, and Persons; then concerned’.4 because there are some things that are not openlycommunicable to the Publick’:5

  After his death some of Dr Rawley’s remaining papers relating to Bacon were entrusted to the care of Thomas Tenison (afterwards Archbishop of Canterbury). Dr Tenison who had been a friend of Rawley and his son William used the papers and catalogues for inclusion in his Baconiana: Or Certain Genuine Remains of Sr Francis Bacon published in 1679.

   As with Bacon’s first editor Dr Rawley, his second editor Dr Tenison secretly knew that Bacon was the true author of the Shakespeare works. He was also familiar with Bacon’s cipher systems referred to by him in his 1623 edition of De Augmentis Scientiarum a number of which were secretly inserted in the 1623 Shakespeare First Folio marking his authorship, alluded to by Dr Tenison in the two passages below:  

 The fairest, and most correct Edition of this Book in Latine, is that in Folio, printed at London, Anno 1623. And whosever understand the Lord Bacon’s Cypher, let him consult that accurate Edition. For, in some other Editions which I have perused, the form of the Letters of the Alphabet, in which much of the Mysterie consisteth, is not observed: But the Roman and Italic shapes of them are confounded.6 

And those who have true skill in the Works of the Lord Verulam, [Lord Bacon] like great Masters in Painting, can tell by the Design, the Strength, the way of Colouring, whether he was the Author of this or the other Piece, though his Name be not to it.7 

Cognisant with the secret application of Bacon’s kay cipher Dr Tension doffs his hat to his authorship of the Shakespeare works in a simple, elegant, and ingenious way. On page 259 of his edition of Baconiana the numerical equivalent in kay cipher for Shakespeare, it is so contrived that the first line on the page reads

                                                      That is, Francis Bacon.8

I do not know if someone already mentionned it, and I have just noticed it ...

On the commemorative plaque, if in all the "TH" the letters T and H  are merged, this is not the case with the "ME".

image.png.61fe48bce39e119ac39f17afafa9a4f5.png

It could be a clue indicating that the "ME" in "WHOME" or the two other ones are important.

"WHOME" is the 36th word.

"MONUMENT" is the 33rd word.

33 = BACON

"NAME" is the 41st word

33 + 41 = 74 = WILLIAM = TUDOR

ME (MY NAME, MY MONUMENT) WILLIAM TUDOR BACON

On the present-day tablet of the Stratford monument there is the following engraving:

A free translation of the Latin inscription at the head of the monument is given by B. Roland Lewis:

 Him who in judgement was a Nestor, in intellect was a Socrates, in art was a Virgil, the earth encloses, the populace mourn, and Olympus holds.

Verses commemorating Bacon as a Poet

In the months following Bacon’s recorded death his private secretary and Rosicrucian Brother Dr Rawley compiled and published a commemorative work in his honour entitled Memoriae honoratissimi Domini Francisci, Baronis de Verulumio, vice-comitis Sancti Albani sacrum, otherwise known as Manes Verulamiani. This rare volume contains thirty-two Latin verses in praise of Bacon with an introduction by Dr Rawley. The orthodox editors and biographers of Bacon have continued to suppress and pass over the contents of this critically important work to the present day. Several of these verses portray Bacon as a secret supreme poet and dramatist of comedies and tragedies written under the pseudonym Shakespeare.

On the present-day tablet of the Stratford monument there is the following engraving:

A free translation of the Latin inscription at the head of the monument is given by B. Roland Lewis:

 Him who in judgement was a Nestor, in intellect was a Socrates, in art was a Virgil, the earth encloses, the populace mourn, and Olympus holds.

B. Roland Lewis, The Shakespeare Documents (Stanford University Press, 1940), II, pp. 542-43

Hi A Phoenix

The absence of any evidence as who commissioned and donated the memorial in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford - and the absence of a name on Shakespeare's grave stone - clearly suggest a covert operation, i.e. an exercise in disinformation.

Please never make such a statement in any published form of media, lol. It's begging for an eye roll. 

How does a statement like this get liked and not questioned? The absence of any evidence CLEARLY SUGGESTS nothing specific can be deduced. One cannot start to build a solid case with the absence of evidence. It simply allows for other things to move in and claim to be possible. Monumental quantities of information are missing from the original historical record. Many of the Church records for that Church are missing. The fact they are missing is not evidence of  conspiracy. The same is true of the Church here were I live (for records dating prior to just 1880). An explanation can be that the information is lost to us. The patron may also have wanted to go unacknowledged. 

Covert disinformation? Where do you get this from? Can I request a train of thought for this. What are we being informed of that is disinformation? All that we can possibly glean from the fact that the epitaph reads more like a poorly written riddle begging you to not dig deeper into this is that someone with a eye for believing disinformation is in play may think that he should in fact be digging deeper into this. In that case one would have to develop a theory for why that would be the case. One would have to imagine a scenario where a game was being played to not tell you something in order to tell you something. In the end we do not know what that something might be. What this does do is serve the people who already have a theory in mind which says something important is being hidden.

IMHO, the mystery is a very impenetrable one. You' ll have to follow Shakespeare to his death to learn the hard way that there is something to the afterlife or not. The people who are playing suggestion games, if they are actually playing games, do not even know the truth that will be revealed to you in a time they cannot specify. They may think they know the truth, but they do not. The problem may in fact be that the mystery is too obvious to be compelling to those who try and find something worthy of writing books about to suggest. 

Is it possible that you may believe in the resurrection of the dead and conclude that this cannot possibly be the mystery people are asked to consider? I will remind you that the early Hebrews did not believe in this. In this entire story there is an attempt to possibly suggest that they always did. It mattered to Protestantism, and it will matter to its institutions like Freemasonry. It was envisioned that if you subscribed to this as a form of character building that in the end you would receive a final revealing Christian teaching that you would be unable to resist accepting (after a life long grooming). The Holy Royal Arch teachings are the prize. Belief in them is what is being targeted. Believe in the story of Jacob and the preferred tribe gets attached to England. The identity of Shakespeare is a complete distraction if you ask me. Focus on the most obvious and hard to ignore details you are being presented with. It is a religious story in all of its details.

The key dates are 1517, 1617 and 1717 and the mystery is twofold. One is of spiritual dimension and one is of an empirical dimension. The latter is used as possible evidence for the former. Look at all the coincidence! There just has to be a God with geometric intent. It is easy to be duped.

I do not know if someone already mentionned it, and I have just noticed it ...

On the commemorative plaque, if in all the "TH" the letters T and H  are merged, this is not the case with the "ME".

image.png.61fe48bce39e119ac39f17afafa9a4f5.png

It could be a clue indicating that the "ME" in "WHOME" or the two other ones are important.

"WHOME" is the 36th word.

"MONUMENT" is the 33rd word.

33 = BACON

"NAME" is the 41st word

33 + 41 = 74 = WILLIAM = TUDOR

ME (MY NAME, MY MONUMENT) WILLIAM TUDOR BACON

😉

I'll offer a criticism. If that was a clue there would be no way to know it was a clue since none of that is decipherable, and it is quite convoluted top of that.  That you can decipher it speaks to who describes the method. This is your creation. There is a suggestion here that you may be guessing right, but there is no one to come and confirm this.  All I keep seeing is the suggestions created that could be of use to you (getting to the desired number 74).  Why are you not creating the ones that would not be, or worse, might say the opposite? Many of those are necessarily possible.  If those would be created who would know to confirm them or reject them?

Anything we want to have be said could potentially be made to be said because the rules are that lax if we do not require a formalism that offers a clear decryption. Gematria is a one way street. You cannot reverse it to a meaning and then construct sentences by fusing words to create ideas with it, and you certainly cannot just decide to chose the gematria scheme that might be of use when one is needed (this or that type of counting system). We have no way of knowing how far all that could go. There necessarily has to be a gematria in which any short enough word could be 33. One would just have to produce it cleverly, use it and keep applying it consistently in such a way that it would appear to always have been used. 

We do not know we should be counting 27, 33, 40, 53 or 67 words here. The 27th word (3 to the power of 3) is death and that just happens to be something this monument deals with. This on top of the fact that the Masonic square ashlar gets completed in death (is the inscription contained in a rectangle that is half that square, signifying the first half is completed?). Why emphasize 27 if that is what is happening?  Do 27 and 33 come and confirm that this a monument to a death of Masonic importance? I don't think so. I think it is relaying an idea via the tomb of a man who is used for this purpose (someone is exploiting it). It is for all to remember death.  Once all that considering is done we do not know to take the 33 and apply it to anyone by attempting to reverse cipher a number.  DeVere proponents will claim 33 is there's because they can decipher it. The will make the case that 33 is clearly Masonic, that all that is DeVere's invention, that 17 is clearly in allusion to the middle way and that he was the 17th Earl of Oxford. Then they may arm themselves with what you say and claim that this is without a doubt DeVere's monument. All that would distinguish their theory and yours is a one idea that says that 33 is Bacon. Is it warranted? Not by any suggestion that this is a reliable deciphering scheme.

There something that is more overt in this monument. Whoever crafted it sees death as an envious thing. He/they want you to ponder death because we are asked to stay a while. The viewer is called a passenger. A passenger of what? Of an orb moving around geometrically in the heavens? What sort of trip is he on? That's someone who is very much a believer that great things are awaiting in death (promised reunions). Could it be Bacon talking? Sure, that's not enough of a context clue to eliminate him as being involved. He may very well be involved. Some patrons had to come and do all of this after all. I think it is a huge stretch to want to try and exploit this monument to further other theories. Let's just say that Bacon could have been involved in the design. But it could also be men who admired Bacon as a philosophical light. If we knew Bacon had ties to the early Acception groups then we would be well on our way, but that is not known. It is possible.

I know it is a suggestion.

That is the reason why I wrote "it could be a clue" and not "It is a clue" .

And I don't try to get to the desired number 74.

I just noticed that there was two type of "ME" and by counting, I noticed that the first one was the 33rd word and the two "merged" ones add to 74. Indeed, IN MY VIEW, it was interesting and I decided to share this with the community.

Talking about De Vere, I remind you that I am opened to the idea that he was involved.

And indeed, if I was an Oxfordian, I could tell you that there are two  "Thou" .

The first one is the 17th word and the 2nd one is the 23rd word.

17 + 23 = 40 so we have the famous 1740 the Oxfordians so dearly love.

Could it be ME (33 - 74 : BACON -TUDOR ) and YOU (1740 the 17th Earl of Oxford)) ? Why not ?

I keep open to all the possibilities.

In ciphering 0 is nulle so what if 1740 concealed the number 174 that is 100 (FRANCIS BACON) + 74 (TUDOR)

Why not ? 

And here is the suggestion of the day, for you who like Hermes, the Trickster. 😁

Thank you for sharingyour thoughts about the number 27 (3^3) . This is really very interesting.

"Do 27 and 33 come and confirm that this is a monument to a death of Masonic importance ? "

You do not think so  ...  I think that it is a possibility.

What if I told you that the couple 27 (3^3)/ 33 you mention is used a second time ? 

Would you change your mind ?😊

By counting from "IUDICIO" :

The 27th word (3^3) is "DEATH" and the 33rd word is "MONUMENT"

And as if by magic, by counting from "STAY" :

The 27th word (3^3) is "DIDE" and the 33rd word is "TOMB".

I personally think that it is relevant.

So, many thanks for you suggestion !🙏
