Show synopsis A classic conspiracy book which argues that Bolshevism is part of a much older and more secret, self-perpetuating conspiracy, centred around the Bavarian Illuminati and Adam Weishaupt. The book begins by noting the role of the ancient secret tradition in various mystery cults which existed in ancient times. The book focuses particularly on the Jewish cabala (which Webster argues has been distorted by the Talmud, the Sephir Yetzirah, the Zohar, and other ancient texts). Webster next turns her attention to occultism, noting the presence of Satanism and Rosicrucianism, particularly as these relate to freemasonry. Webster also shows how freemasonry has actively conspired against throne and altar, particularly Continental masonry (though she denies the influence of malevolent elements to such a great extent within Anglo-American masonry). This is the definitive reference book on pre-1920s conspiracy theory.
