Traditionem Lampadis


Recommended Posts

In his Book "Of the Advancement of Learning" (Book 6 - Chapter 2) published in 1605, Francis Bacon mentions the
"Traditionem Lampadis" or the Delivery of the Lamp, which represents the passing on of the LIGHT/TRUTH/WISDOM.

And what Francis Bacon writes is very important!

"Of which kind of Delivery, the Method of the Mathematicks in that subject, hath some shadow, but generally
I see it neither put in ure nor put in Inquisition; and therefore number it amongst Deficients ; and we will
call it Traditionem Lampadis, the Delivery of the Lampe, or the Method bequeathed to the sonnes of Sapience."

https://archive.org/details/ofadvancementpro00baco/page/176/mode/2up

Let's take Francis Bacon's word for it.

As if by chance, this passage is on page 177 of "The Advancement of Learning".

177 is the simple cipher of WILLIAM SHAKE-SPEARE.

Inquisition comes from the Latin word Inquisitio meaning search, investigation, collecting of evidence.

What if we apply "the Method of the Mathematiques" to "Traditionem Lampadis" and "number it" ?

The simple cipher of "TRADITIONEM LAMPADIS" is 193.

193 is 100 + 93 

100 is the simple cipher of FRANCIS BACON and 93, or IC (I see), a reference to Iesus Christ.

Now, let's take a look at WILLIAM SHAKE-SPEARE'S FIRST FOLIO.

By counting from the Droeshout's Portrait of WILLIAM SHAKE-SPEARE, the 193th page is the page number 177 of "The Merchant of Venice".

177 ... the simple cipher of WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.

In the following video, you will discover, among other things, the importance of numbers 93 and 177 in the First Folio,
and how Francis Bacon used these numbers, as well as the number 84, to conceal the Truth :

But there is much more!

As Baconians, you know the famous Jacob Cat's Emblem "Lampado Trado" published in his book "Alle de Wercken" in 1655,
and depicting "The passing on of the Lamp of Tradition" between John Dee and Francis Bacon.

https://sirbacon.org/lamp.htm

Another "Lampado Trado" Emblem appears in Lychnocausia, a Book of Emblems by Robert Farlie, published a few years earlier (1638).

https://archive.org/details/lychnocausiasive00farl

In this emblem, the character is a Shakespearean Actor (Could it be Shakespeare himself ?)

Now, what if I told you that Francis Bacon concealed "The passing on of the Lamp of Tradition" in the First Folio ?

The fact is that he concealed the Truth in "The Tempest",  a tribute to Master John Dee, his mentor.

                                                                                       Portrait of Francis Bacon by Paul van Somer (1617)

Lampado.thumb.png.39e062cdb98d6bdcec97079bbfdefdc0.png

 

As you know, Free was used by Francis Bacon as a signature because:

BACON = FREE = 33 (simple cipher)
BACON = FREE = 111 (Kay cipher)
The French word for FREE is FRANC or LIBRE an anagram of LIBER , a reference to LIBER , the Free-one, an Italic God of wine like Bacchus/Bacco.
(See The Shakespeare Enigma by Peter Dawkins - Chapter 13)                                                    

And here is a link to the work of Peter Dawkins on the subject (page 14)
https://www.fbrt.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Baconian-Rosicrucian_Ciphers.pdf

« Freedome,high-day,high-day freedome,freedome, high-day, freedome ! »

Free is used for times. and 4 times "Free" equals 4 x 111 = 444 ,that is the gematria of MIKDASH the Hebrew word for TEMPLE.

FRANCIS BACON TELLS US THAT HE IS THE NEW MASTER OF THE TEMPLE !

Let's take a look at the 444th leaf and at the 444th page of the First Folio.

444th leaf:  The Tragedie of Cymbeline (Tragedies - page 389)

WM.thumb.png.f0d3311c36d87ac4a8a153420adf6e75.png

                                                                     VENERABLE IS THE FRENCH WORD FOR WORSHIPFUL MASTER

Parents.thumb.png.d193dca821b6d30ca046db83b0c06ee1.png

 

444th page: The life of Henry the Fift ( Histories - page 90)

Light.thumb.png.57c8c66d43671dbe9e3f1b71846a9e3d.png

 

In conclusion, Francis Bacon confirmes that he is the Worshipful Master in "The Comedie of Errors", on the misprinted page 88(86) ,which interestingly enough is

the 103th page by counting from Ben Jonson's Eulogy (To The Reader).

And as you know, 103 is the simple cipher of SHAKE-SPEARE !

Something I came across many years ago that I played with a bit.

"Mathematical magick: or, The wonders that may be performed by mechanical geometry." by John Wilkins - 1691

"Such a lamp is likewise related to be seen in the sepulcher of Francis Rosicross, as is more largely expressed in the confession of that fraternity."

Page 237:

https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=osu.32435018035212&view=1up&seq=257&skin=2021

Cap. 10. Mechanical Motions. 237

    be seen in the sepulcher of Francis
    Rosicross, as is more largely expressed
    in the confession of that fraternity.

..........................................................................................

001 = "Cap", 1 word
010 = "10" the number 10
237 = page number 237
017 = 17 letters "Mechanical Motions"
022 = 22 letters "be seen in the sepulcher"
286 = total

287 = The first letter, "F", of "Francis Rosicross".

Notice the first words of the body on this page: "be seen"
could be deciphered to: "be C (see) n" = "becn" = "Bacon"

Page 246:

246 Daedalus; or, Lib. 2.

For the first, it is generally granted (7 words)
that there are divers substances which (6 words)
will retain fire without consuming: such (6 words)
is that Mineral which they call the (7 words)
Salamanders-wool, faith our learned (4 words)
*Bacon.

...............................................................................................

256 = number of lines from "Rosicross" on page 237 to "*Bacon" on page 246
030 = number of words in body of page 246 before "*Bacon"
001 = The * before the name "Bacon"
287 = Total number count between "Francis Rosicross" and "Bacon".

Notice the beginnings of those lines:

For
that
will
is
Salamanders-wool
*Bacon

Could be saying: "That Fr. Bacon is Will S."

Page 157 of the same book.

This is taken "out of context" as he is talking about a "Chariot", but always hit me as a strange coincidence when Bacon and 157 have appeared in other places earlier than 1691. Besides, what a cool way to think about Shakespeare's works; a Chariot.

First line of body:

the Author of it, in divers Epigrams.

Then some Latin which I don't understand, followed by these words:

These relations did at the first seem un-
to me, (and perhaps they will so to o-
thers) somewhat strange and incredible.
But upon farther enquiry I have heard
them frequently attested from the par-
ticular eye-sight and experience of such
eminent persons, whose names I dare
not cite in a business of this nature,
which is those parts is so very com-
mon, and little observed.

Hi Rob,

The pregnant passage conceals and reveals a secret historical truth that FB was the Founder of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood and the author of its manifestos the Fama Fraternitatis and Confessio Fraternitatis

As a member of Bacon’s Rosicrucian Brotherhood Dr Wilkins was privy to many of the secrets of his life and writings. In the Mathematicall Magick (1648) in a chapter discussing subterraneous lamps, its author 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. 236-7]

The passage contains a deliberate error a device used by the Rosicrucian Brotherhood when disclosing a secret about Francis Bacon. The sepulchre with the lamp in its vault is described not in the Confessio Fraternitatis, but in the preceding first Rosicrucian manifesto, the Fama Fraternitatis with the passage cryptically indicating that Francis Bacon (‘Francis Rosicrosse’) was the secret founder of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood and the secret author of its two manifestos.

Funny, when I poking around the other day to see what new I could learn new about Christopher Wren (William and Mary College), John Wilkins name came up on Wikipedia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Wren

"Wren became closely associated with John Wilkins, the Warden of Wadham. The Wilkins circle was a group whose activities led to the formation of the Royal Society, comprising a number of distinguished mathematicians, creative workers and experimental philosophers. This connection probably influenced Wren's studies of science and mathematics at Oxford."

So many paths interweave and criss-cross when studying Bacon. As I am sure you have experienced! LOL

Hi Rob,

Thank you so much for sharing this with us. This is a great finding !

I think that you are totally right.

Salamander is born from fire and, like the Phoenix is a symbol of rebirth and immortality.

And the Salamander was the Emblem of ... Francis I of France !

https://www.worldhistory.org/image/13764/crown--salamander-symbol-of-francis-i-of-france/

It could be saying : " For that Will is the immortal King Francis Bacon"

Shakespeare - Henry Vi, Part 1 Act 3, Scene 3 (I have maintained that salamander of yours with fire any time this two and thirty years; God reward me for it!):


BARDOLPH: Why, you are so fat, Sir John, that you must needs
    be out of all compass, out of all reasonable
    compass, Sir John.

FALSTAFF: Do thou amend thy face, and I'll amend my life:
    thou art our admiral, thou bearest the lantern in
    the poop, but 'tis in the nose of thee; thou art the
    Knight of the Burning Lamp.

BARDOLPH: Why, Sir John, my face does you no harm.

FALSTAFF: No, I'll be sworn; I make as good use of it as many
    a man doth of a Death's-head or a memento mori: I
    never see thy face but I think upon hell-fire and
    Dives that lived in purple; for there he is in his
    robes, burning, burning. If thou wert any way
    given to virtue, I would swear by thy face; my oath
    should be 'By this fire, that's God's angel:' but
    thou art altogether given over; and wert indeed, but
    for the light in thy face, the son of utter
    darkness. When thou rannest up Gadshill in the
    night to catch my horse, if I did not think thou
    hadst been an ignis fatuus or a ball of wildfire,
    there's no purchase in money. O, thou art a
    perpetual triumph, an everlasting bonfire-light!
    Thou hast saved me a thousand marks in links and
    torches, walking with thee in the night betwixt
    tavern and tavern: but the sack that thou hast
    drunk me would have bought me lights as good cheap
    at the dearest chandler's in Europe. I have
    maintained that salamander of yours with fire any
    time this two and thirty years;
God reward me for
    it!

Bacon in Silva sylvarum : or, a natural history in ten centuries

THere is an ancient received Tradition of the Salamander, that it liveth in the Fire, and hath force alſo to extinguiſh the fire. It muſt have two things, if it betrue, to this operation. The one, a very cloſe skin, whereby flame, which in the midſt is not ſo hot, cannot enter: For we ſee, that if the Palm of the Hand be anointed thick with White of Eggs, and then Aquavitæ be poured upon it, and enflamed, yet one may endure the flame a pretty while. The other is ſome extream cold and quenching vertue, in the Body of that Creature which choaketh the fire.

 

EDIT: inserted the Shakespeare text.

Thank you again Rob !

I did not know this book, that seems to be another goldmine.

Indeed, it is very interesting to think about Shakespeare's Works as "A Chariot".

My first thought is   A "Chariot" also means a "Charioteer".

My second thought is for "The Chariot" Tarot card with its" Charioteer" who is a Prince with  a Janus-like Shoulder armor.

   I have not met with any Author who
doth  treat   particularly    concerning
the  manner  of  Framing  this Chariot,
though  Grotius  mentions  an elegant
description of it in copper by one Gey-
nius :   and Hondius in one of his large
Maps of Asia,does give another conje-
ctural description  of  the like Chariots
used in China.

By one Geynius ... Fra Bacon !

Moreover : Cap. 2   Epi. 19  Epi. 5  Epi. 20 & 21      2+19+5+20+21 = 67  The simple cipher of FRANCIS 🙂

I most definitely found that appropriate to the discussion. From Lamp to Salamander and back again.

Lot of easy to find ciphers in Henry IV Part 1. (I see my typo, I typed in Henry Vi, but it is Henry IV Part 1.)

Knight of the Burning Lamp? I am sure there are counts in both directions...

And this is your 67th post ! 😁 Thank you Rob, but the credits belongs to Ben Jonson.

"Haile, Happie Genius of this ancient Pile !" ,  Happie Genius being a reference to Jupiter/Jove , which can explain the reference to Jupiter/Jove in the Latin text at the beginning of the page 157.

Nothing like a good page 157.

"...whose names I dare not cite in a business of this nature, which is those parts is so very com-mon, and little observed."

You mean like Bacon and Shakespeare? LOL

One genius Author and his Chariot...

Page 287 is about a perpetual motion idea. If you get time take a look at it. I've played with it, a little. 🙂

Rob, I just saw something interesting in the passage of Henry IV part 1 Act 3 scene 3.

"O, thou art a perpetual triumph, an everlasting bonfire-light!"

5 years ago, as I was making research on "The Chariot", my research led me to the four Triumphant Chariots of the "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili "

https://archive.org/details/hypnerotomachiap00colo/page/n157/mode/2up

And looking for a link to share, what a surprise ! The chapter on the Triumphant Chariots begins on page 157.
