Spiritual Wifery


One of the most important people that the esoteric societies used to control the likes of Hitler, Napoleon, Nixon and others is the personal physician. In this context we find Napoleon was later poisoned by his physician after one from Ireland refused to do what he was directed to do and we find the egis of something even more far-reaching. The religions of this world are all tools of the elite and their social engineers as Francis Fukayama proudly proclaims in his late 20th Century book The End of History and The Last Man. He does not tell us who created these religions or what their secret rituals are; if he even knows. The primary purpose of this book is to explore the esoterics of Josephine and Napoleon with a view to garnering more insight into who managed them and how it was done. With that in mind we look to a Kabalist who institutionalized the less-than-egalitarian treatment of women by Joseph Smith and the Mormons. This man’s father was the physician of Napoleon and his father wanted him to be a rabbi so I am sure his father knew the Kaballah to some extent too.

“The Council of Fifty in Nauvoo manifest a distinctly Masonic character, and Masonic ceremonial elements were incorporated in the council’s meetings. A similar tenor emerged in Strang’s Order of the Illuminati. It was only a few months after the claimed revelation commissioning him to organize the “Illuminati” at Nauvoo that Bennett initiated efforts to form the Masonic lodge. But Mormon historians have yet to specifically explored implications of another fact: both the name given by Bennett for the organization, “Order of the Illuminati,” and the political concept embodied by the organization had a clear Masonic heritage. The parallel is so close that one wonders whether Bennett might have brought this and other more esoteric Masonic concepts with him into Nauvoo. At about this same time the practice of “Spiritual wifery” or plural marriage was also introduced. Bennett made several exaggerated claims in his later exposés about libertine sexual practices, claiming the women of Nauvoo were inducted into three ritual orders based on the sexual favors expected of them. Such claims are not tenable, but nonetheless recent historians have noted the apparent association of the Relief Society with Masonry. And Bennett’s more slanderous claims aside, it is a fact that the female leaders of the Relief Society in Nauvoo were at one time all wives of Joseph Smith. Whatever the actual relationship to the practices in Nauvoo, Masonic lodges had existed which did indulge in such practices, the most specific example being Cagliostro’s {Part of the Crowleyan soul-continuance and if Paschal Beverly Randolph [Merovingian Physiocrat like Dupont] is right in his claimed similar connection to Eliphas Levi then to him as well.} Egyptian rite. By all reports, Bennett would have intimate interest in this sort of Masonry–or this sort of Mormonism–and it would be hard to imagine him not encouraging Joseph’s ideas about new forms of ritual marriage.

In this context, another question lingers: Is it possible Bennett’s meteoric rise to prominence in Nauvoo was related to some unsuspected Masonic factor? Did he arrive in Nauvoo claiming independent esoteric lineages of Hermetic or Masonic priesthood, or some ancient and occult knowledge–declarations that Joseph, because of prior life experiences and associations, choose to honor? Though Bennett finally may have been nothing but a talented charlatan, it must be granted that a complex legacy of spiritual insight was embedded in Masonic rituals, myths, and symbols; they had a history and a lineage reaching back many centuries into Hermetic, Kabalistic, and alchemical Gnosis. John C. Bennett may have brought something more than Blue Lodge Masonry to Nauvoo. And, regardless of his true intentions, what he brought may have been useful to a prophet.

In Nauvoo, in 1842 and after, I suggest Joseph Smith encountered a reservoir of myths, symbols, and ideas conveyed in the context of Masonry but with complex and more distant origins in the Western esoteric tradition. They apparently resonated with Smith’s own visions, experiences modulating his spiritual life from the time of his earliest intuitions of a prophetic calling. He responded to this stimulus with a tremendous, creative outpouring–the type of creative response Gnostic myth and symbol were meant to evoke, and evidently had evoked across a millennium of history. But, leaving Masonry, there was still another, more primary transmission of this esoteric tradition that would touched Joseph’s creative imagination during his last years in Nauvoo.

Joseph Smith and Kabbalah in Nauvoo

By 1842 Joseph Smith most likely had touched the subject of Kabbalah in several ways and versions, even if such contacts remain beyond easy documentation. During Joseph’s final years in Nauvoo, however, his connection with Kabbalah becomes more concrete. In the spring of 1841 there apparently arrived in Nauvoo an extraordinary library of Kabalistic writings belonging to a European Jew and convert to Mormonism who evidently new Kabbalah and its principal written works. This man, Alexander Neibaur, would soon become the prophet’s friend and companion.

Neibaur {The Rothschilds were Bauers before they took the occult symbol and shield as their name. Could this be a ‘nee’ [French for ‘born’]-Bauer?} has received little detailed study by Mormon historians, and his knowledge of Kabbalah has earned only an occasional passing footnote in Mormon historical work. Neibaur was born in Alsace-Lorraine in 1808, but during his later childhood the family apparently returned to their original home in eastern Prussia (now part of Poland). His father, Nathan Neibaur, was a physician and dentist, who family sources claim, was a personal physician to ‘the’ Napoleon Bonaparte and whose skill as a linguist made him of “great value” to Napoleon as an interpreter (claims perhaps inflated by posterity). Like his father, Alexander became fluent in several languages, including French, German, Hebrew, and later, English. He also read Latin and Greek. {It is reasonable to expect that he understood symbology and archetypes and what became Neuro-Linguistic Programming and its hypnotic ‘charms’ to control people.} Family tradition claims that as the first child and eldest son, his father wished him to become a rabbi, and that the young Neibaur was begun in rabbinical training.” (2)
