We continue with the introduction to Augustin Barruel’s Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism, a veritable historical nucleus of modern conspiracy theory.

In this episode we deal with what Barruel calls “Anti-Christian conspiracy”, i.e. a push to abolish both political and epistemological domination of religion and metaphysics, embodied in Catholic Church.

We proceed to depict his thesis that the inciters of this subversive movement were followers of Enlightenment led by Voltaire and how it plays out into idea that what we today consider to be mainstream world-view was once a subversive movement.

This episodes concludes with remarks on seeming paradox of congeniality of Enlightenment style rationalism and occultism.

In the third episode we’ll dwell some more on this historical fact made manifest by collaboration with- or subversion of Freemasonry by Enlightenment philosophists.
