I feel compelled to put the scope of this project into context.
Like most of you, I first heard about ‘the Illuminati’ through movies and on the internet, concerning a small group of people controlling the world.
Wanting to know more, I came to learn that groups calling themselves ‘enlightened’ have in one way or another existed here and there trough out history.
Like you, I became interested in particular with the Bavarian Order of the Illuminati, founded by Adam Weishaupt.
That’s when I realized that not only was he just a writer, but he was quite a prolific one. Surprisingly, no one has ever translated the body of his works. Therefore, unless you can find and read the old German books, his work remains inaccessible to the bulk of humanity. That being the case, how is it possible that so many things could be said about one of the most notorious secret societies in history, when none of the writings of the founder himself have ever been translated? Something doesn’t add up.
That’s what triggered the founding of Malta Minerval Editions. I have been told it could take at least 10 years of work, which has prompted us to begin our labours in earnest.
As a product of our synergies, you will now have access to the entire collection of the works of Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Bavarian Order of the Illuminati, translated from the old German into modern English. You will now have access to the original text along with the translation, and numerous annotations for clarity and context.
The sole objective of this work is to allow the reader to have an informed opinion, based on facts rather than fiction (irrespective of which you prefer).
