Sir Francis Bacon / Saint Germain
Portrait by Pourbus the Younger, 1617
"I have held up a light in the obscurity of Philosophy, which will be seen centuries after I am dead. It will be seen amidst the erection of Tombs, Theatres, Foundations, Temples, Orders and Fraternities for nobility and obedience — the establishment of good laws as an example to the World. For I am not raising a Capitol or Pyramid to the Pride of men, but laying a foundation in the human understanding for a holy Temple after he model of the World. For my memory I leave it to Men's charitable speeches, to foreign Nations and the next Ages, and to my own Country after some Time has elapsed."
Francis Bacon, Advancement of Learning (1605), Bk II.
Sir Francis Bacon was a Utopian at heart who hoped to enlighten religion and increase education and the knowledge of science and thereby create the New JerUSAlem. Bacon proposed a blueprint for a new Golden Age through all allegorical novel called the New Atlantis, his magnum opus, published in 1627, shortly after the foundation of the English colonies in the New World. It describes the creation of a scientific institute within the American colonies along the lines of the Invisible College advocated in the Rosicrucian Manifestos. Sir Francis expressed his views on this subject several times, claiming that the New Kingdom on Earth which was Virginia exemplified the Kingdom of Heaven.
He was more explicit in a speech to Parliament when he called for the establishment of Solomon's House or Temple in the new colonies. In this clear reference to King Solomon's Temple in a New JerUSAlem, Bacon stated that the founding of the colonies in Virginia in 1606 was a spiritual act as well as a political one.
Even given the potential sensationalism of these views, the most enduring theory about Sir Francis Bacon suggests that he actually authored the works of Shakespeare and that his original manuscripts lay in a vault beneath the Bruton Parish Church of Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia while some claim they lay buried in a vault up in Oak Island, Nova Scotia. Where they were deposited by the earliest privateers and Freemasons, who supported Bacon.

of Sir Bacon's New Atlantis
In his learned romance New Atlantis, Sir Francis Bacon supposes that a sailing vessel lands on an unknown island called Bensalem, over which a certain king Solomon reigned in days of yore. It has been established that the sailing vessels of the Phoenician King Hiram of Tyre and King Solomon were at sea for forty-two days before reaching the gold mines of Ophir. Thus, North America appears not only to be a good candidate for the location of his new King Solomon's mines and the land of Ophir (Treasures of El Dorado?), but also, in all probability, to be the private source of gold for both the Knights Templars and the Royal House of Stewart or Stuart who have always protected the royal Davidic bloodline.
While the chancellor of England under the reign of King James the First, Sir Francis immersed himself in a mystical, hermetic philosophy and practiced alchemy as well. Once he wrote that alchemists were like the sons of the man who told them he had left gold buried in the Vineyard. After vigorous digging, they found no gold, but they had turned up the soil and mold around the roots of the vines and so produced a plentiful vintage the coming season. Thus;
"The quest for gold brought to light many useful inventions and advanced society in innumerable ways."
-- Sir Francis Bacon
In the Wisdom of the Ancients, Francis Bacon also warned against:
". . .the commodity of wit and discourse that is able to apply things well, yet so as was never meant by the first authors." -- Francis Bacon
In other words, he posits that many people look to provide meaning where no meaning has ever existed and many people believe that a treasure lies hidden where no treasure has ever existed. Nevertheless, Bacon himself, as a self-described "latter-day symbolist of the pagan mysteries," deduced from the myths an extraordinary abundance of "concealed instruction and allegory," for:
"Parable has ever been a kind of ark, in which the most precious portions of the sciences were deposited."
-- Francis Bacon
Yet Bacon's largest and most enduring claim to fame is the theory suggesting that he wrote Shakespeare and that his original manuscripts lie in a Masonic Vault beneath Bruton Parish original church foundations in the parish church yard of Colonial Williamsburg, Va. This theory comes from those whom have done their homework, so to speak, and say that William Shakespeare could not have written the works to which he is credited; whereas Sir Francis Bacon possessed all the qualities and life's experiences that Shakespeare lacked. It is an interesting theory to say the least but, to associate it with the Bruton Vault and the vault on Oak Island, must be a clue to Bacon's at least partial understanding of the bigger picture of the founding of the New JerUSAlem or the New Atlantis.
Aside from Francis Bacon's literary and political contributions, there is overwhelming evidence that he was part of several European Secret Societies; starting in France as a young man, he joined the Love Society in Paris and was on his way. This would led him to be introduced to the Priory of Sion (Zion) or other underground Orders that were all dedicated to the guardianship of the Holy Royal Bloodlines of King David through Jesus and Mary Magdalen which contain within them the seeds of the New JerUSAlem or the New Atlantis. We know he participated in Rosicrucian Order and may very well have resurrected the dormant underground remains and history of the medieval Knights Templars whose sacred Old Jerusalem treasures lie buried with Ark of the Covenant and the Grail at Roselyn Chapel in Scotland not far from London where he was based during his career. Had he found the esoteric knowledge of the Knights Templars and their true mission while researching and rewriting the King James version of the bible? He was obsessed with codes and ciphers and initiated watermarks on paper, and why? Why then his great passion to resurrect King Solomon's Temple in the New JerUSAlem?
If we are to consider that the majority of the watermarks used in Bacon's time and after related to the unicorn, the Merovingian (Holy Royal Bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalen) bear, the snake or worm (the Shamir), the Grail, and the 2 Pillars of the Temple of Solomon, Bacon's role suddenly seems to loom much larger in the overall grandly designed puzzle of the Grand Master Sinclair and his Knights Templars and their presence in the New World up in Nova Scotia to prior Christopher Columbus sponsored by Spain. Could it just be that Bacon's New Atlantis was in fact Grand Master of the Knights Templars Prince Henry Sinclair's New JerUSAlem? Author Margaret Starbird considers the symbolism of the ancient water marks to be a political statement as well as doctrinal, and that the heresy to which many of them allude is related to that of the Holy Grail: During the twelfth century, the Cathars believed that Jesus was the earthly vessel of the spiritual of God and that his teachings about the ancient mysteries would lead them to personal enlightenment and transformation. Many of the watermarks were indeed heretical as far as the Catholic Church was concerned, indicating a belief in the bloodline of the married Jesus and Mary Magdalen who were the royal heirs the of King David in the Temple of Solomon in the Old Jerusalem of the Middle East.
"In which sort of things it is the manner of men, first to wonder that such a thing should be possible, and after it is found out, to wonder again how the world should miss it so long."
-- Francis Bacon, Valerius Terminus
Let it be known that through the heroic spiritual deeds of both Sir Francis Bacon and Prince Henry Sinclair have achieved something of the same status as the Egyptian Pharaohs of the Greek Man-Gods and why? They carry them in their own bloodlines going back through Jesus and Mary Magdalen and on to King David which goes on to the Annunaki Gods of Sumeria! For it is they who set the stage for the final chapter of fulfilling the ancient prophecies of the Bible and establish eventually a new temple of Solomon to bring about global unity of all within the bounds of the New JerUSAlem. It was the secreting of the great treasures that Prince Henry Sinclair was over seeing at his Roselyn Chapel in Scotland that led him to following the ancient mysteries ley lines or rose lines as many call them. These ley lines are earth meridians that in some important way figured largely in the founding of the New World events and still do.
Sinclair had been appointed the Guardian of the Holy Grail by the Grail King Families of Europe and he was on a very spiritual quest as was Sir Francis Bacon who also perpetuated the same spiritual intentions but separately as far as history knows. Bacon prepared the plans for a Masonic vault containing hermetically sealed copper cylinders containing ancient documents along side his own vast writings that were strategically placed in the vault in the ground at the Bruton Parish Church yard within the foundations of the original Masonic temple that was built when the vault was brought up from Jamestown to higher ground. Both of these very powerful, intelligent, courageous and spiritually awakened men were perpetrating a spiritual quest of the ages which is our legacy for all times and the time is now for all to be revealed! There efforts inspired men such as Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and many many others. It is only a matter of time when these vaults and many other connecting vaults world wide will reveal the truth.
