EGYPTIAN FREEMASONRY
OF THE ANCIENT AND PRIMITIVE
RITE OF MEMPHIS-MISRAÏM


 

 

by Galbix Red and Gabriel López de Rojas


The creator of the Egyptian Freemasonry of Egyptian Rite was the Count Alexander of Cagliostro (1749-1796), born in Tunisi. He must not be identified with the mystifier Giuseppe Balsamo (1743-1795), the palermitano recruited by the Jesuits to personify and to throw the disrepute on the true Count of Cagliostro.

Alexander of Cagliostro was initiated to the secrets of the Egyptian Freemasonry by the mysterious Master Altothas in 1776, year of the foundation of the Illuminati Order. And few know that the summit of the Illuminati Order was constituted by six members: four were known (Weishaupt, von Knigge, Goethe, Herder) and two were secrets (Franklin and Cagliostro).

In effects a secret connection existed between the Illuminati Order of Weishaupt and the Egyptian Freemasonry of Cagliostro that was officially founded in 1785, year of the suppression of the Illuminati Order. Besides, Napoleone Bonaparte was initiated by Cagliostro to the Egyptian Freemasonry and the Masonic Rites of Memphis, of Misraïm and of Memphis-Misraïm come down from it.

Between 1810 and 1813, in Naples (Italy), the three brothers Bédarride (Michel, Marc and Joseph) received the Supreme Powers from the Order of Misraïm and they developed the Rite of Misraïm in France. They made it official in Paris in 1814. The Rite was composed of 90 degrees, taken from the Scottish freemasonry, from Martinism and other Masonic currents, and the last four degrees received the name of "Arcana Arcanorum."

In 1815, in Montauban (France), the Mother Lodge of the Rite of Memphis was constituted with the Grand Master Samuel Honis as head, whom followed, in 1816, Gabriel-Mathieu Marconis. In 1838, Jean Etienne Marconis de Nègre, son of this last one, took over the Rite of Memphis. The Rite, for J. E. Marconis de Nègre, was a continuation of the ancient Mysteries practised in the Antiquity, in India and in Egypt. The Constitutions of the Rite said: "... the masonic rite of Memphis is the continuation of the Mysteries of the Antiquity. The Rite taught the first men to pay homage to the divinity... ". The Rite of Memphis reached the 92 and 95 degrees.

In 1881, the Italian general Giuseppe Garibaldi reunified the Rites of Memphis and Misraïm and became the Grand Hierophante of both. After the death of Garibaldi, in 1882, the Rites entered in a "dark" period up to when, in 1890, various lodges of both Rites were federated and the Rite of Memphis-Misraïm appeared. In 1900, the Italian Ferdinando Francesco degli Oddi became Head of the Memphis-Misraïm and was replaced, by the English John Yarker, in 1902. The Rite reached the 97 degrees.

In 1902, the German Theodor Reuss established the Sovereign Sanctuary of Memphis-Misraïm in Germany and in 1913, after the death of Yarker, he became the International Head of the Rite. In 1924, T. Reuss passed to Eternal East and the succession was interrupted, except in the O.T.O. (Ordo Templi Orientis), the neotemplar order founded by Reuss, in 1905, in Germany. In reality, the O.T.O. had included the Rite of Memphis-Misraïm, although in a reduced version, where its principals degrees were incorporated.

In 1909, Theodor Reuss delivered a licence to the famous martinista Gerard Encauss (Papus). The successors of Papus were Charles Detré (Tedé), Jean Bricaud, Constant Chevillon, Charles-Henry Dupont and Robert Ambelain. In 1939, Jean Bricaud passed to the Eternal East and was followed by Chevillon. In 1944, Chevillon was murdered by the French collaborationists of nazional-socialism and was followed by Dupont. And, in 1960, Ambelain succeeded Dupont.

On November 14, 1973, the Italian Francesco Brunelli (1927-1982) was named by Robert Ambelain responsible for the Rite in Italy. On November 22, 1973, Francesco Brunelli (Nebo) - Grand Master of the Martinist Ancient and Traditional Order and of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm - was received with all honors in the Grand Lodge of Italy, to Palazzo Giustiniani. But the activity of the Rite in Italy and in the Grand Lodge of Italy was anecdotal in the seventies.

In 1981, Francesco Brunelli contacted the known Italian initiate Frank G. Ripel to restructure the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm and the situation of the Rite was the following: 99º or International Head of the Egyptian Oriental Order of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm, 98º or Incognito Superior (from the degree VIIº to the XIIIº of the Order of the Rosa Mistica), 97º or Substitute of the International Head, 96º or National Head, 1º-95º or Operative Freemason (from the Iº to the VIº of the Order of the Rosa Mistica). In the renewed Egyptian Oriental Order of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm of which we are about to talk, from 1º to 95º, the 6 Alchemical Operations are found and associated to the degrees 1º-3º, 4º-33º, 34º-42º, 43º-63º, 64º-74º and 75º-95º.

Frank G. Ripel was at the head of the Egyptian Oriental Order of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm between 1981 and 1999, when he put it in "sleep."

At the end of March 2003, Frank G. Ripel, being Grand Master of the O.C.I. (Order of the Enlightened Knights) had a contact with the Spanish Gabriel López de Rojas, founder and Grand Master of the Illuminati Order, O.H.O. of the Societas O.T.O. (Ordo Templi Orientalis), 33º degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, maximum degree of a pair of Egyptian Rites. When Gabriel López de Rojas learned that the Egyptian Oriental Order of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm of Frank G. Ripel was in "sleep", proposed to Ripel "to wake it up again" and he accepted, making it to revive, on May 1, 2003, with the name of Egyptian Freemasonry of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm.

The Egyptian Freemasonry of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis and Misraïm is structured in the following form:

Short Biography on Licio Gelli

In 1980 Licio Gelli, through his constant relationships with the Royal House of Savoia Lucifero Falcone (Minister of the Royal House of Savioa) was honored the Earl title by the King Umberto II (the last King of Italy).

Toward the end of the Seventies the Grand Orient of Italy, appointed Gelli as Venerable Master to direct and give back life to the Masonic Lodge "Propaganda 2" (P2), which was founded in 1895 by Grand Master Lemmi.

In the Eighties the unfounded P2 scandal busted. Subsequently, the Venerable Master was acquitted of the accusations that were brought against him.

In 1996 Commendatore Licio Gelli, for his activity in poetry and writing, proposed candidates from 59 structures - academies, university, Italians and foreigners cultural associations for the Nobel Prize for the Literature.

Reading the Magna Charta

The Magna Charta of human rights can be explained on two levels, i.e. two levels of composition, two structural systems which have been thought up.
The first level – expressed in the first document – is that which deals with understanding and not intellect and this is the essential difference which distinguishes the aristocrat from the common man.
The second level – expressed in the second document – deals with the attributes of the intellect, corresponding to the mental approach of the common man. Reading such a document allows man to understand the content of the Magna Charta.

 

The Magna Charta of human rights

Loyalty, Hierarchy, Meritocracy: these are the three key words which make up the aristocratic motto.

Aristocracy is fidelity… fidelity to the principles of each thing, its being and its expression. This expression is manifested in the realization of earthly things for the well-being of the individuals who must gather and cultivate in themselves this aristocratic motto.
Man’s transformation takes place through spreading three concepts of an essential nature: Loyalty, Hierarchy, Meritocracy. Each one of these must be perceived, in each single individual, as nature come alive, so that the realization – in man – of these three concepts may generate the primary concept of Liberty.
If man does not take up these three concepts in his inmost being he will never be able to express and live the concept of Liberty. It is the axiom of laws on which is based the evolution of humanity, thus the aristocratic motto – made up of three concepts – determines in man the primary concept of Liberty which includes the concept of Equality, equality between peoples. Where this does not happen, there is no evolution, there is way for the existence of universal Brotherhood.

The first word of the aristocratic motto, Loyalty.
Of prime importance is honesty to oneself and consequently towards others. When this is accomplished, one can enter into a relationship with one’s neighbour…if he too has reached the same realization.

The second word of the aristocratic motto, Hierarchy.
It is the heart of the aristocrat. He orders and weighs up the terms of Loyalty. In such a way, he manages to formulate and thus to estimate the honesty of every single individual in his regard.

The third word of the aristocratic motto, Meritocracy.
The aristocrats, after having weighed up the path of each individual, award him merits at different levels.

Bull of the Gran Hierophante Frank G. Ripel

Expulsion from the M.E.A.P.R.M.M.
of Brad Cofield.


March 1st 2012

 

My tolerance has not served towards Brad Cofield.
Lately I have been forced to warn in his prejudicial attitude towards other eminent brethren. I have received many notes of eminent Masons – from various countries of world – of his misconduct and for these reasons I expel Brad Cofield from M.E.A.P.R.M.M. with the mark of shame. He only showed to want to destroy and not to unite – as Masonic Spirit requires – great spiritual initiatives such as the Birth of WAEO.

I would like to publicly apologize to GM Ripel, MEAPRMM, and Mario Serenko for any wrong doing seen by my actions. I publically disavow any associations with Brad Cofield. It was never my intent to form any jurisdiction with Brad Cofield. Mario Serenko and I both were misled as to his actions stemming from a MEAPRMM page that I created on Facebook".

Thank you,

Brad Cofield the slanderer

 

Brad Cofield the slanderer, the informations-fake. I can prove that Brad Cofield tells lies. As soon as possible Brad Cofield will be penally prosecuted.

 

Appeal to all American Masons

The declarations of Brad Cofield, a mentally insane person who need to be cured.


By: Frang G. Ripel 100°.

The real Mason is known by his tolerance, not by his weakness.

It is useless to say that all what Brad Cofield told about me is false (I can easily prove it).
Even the photos that he has published (in the attempt to discredit me) has been downloaded from my Blog (you can get it searching Google "Frank G. Ripel" - "Giornale di Viaggio") and was referred to a Hallowin party - 31 October 2011 - where I have been taking  part.
Morover , searching Google "Brad Cofield" and "Brad's Cofield 1613 Nation" you can find a wide report about him, a scammer, liar and information forger.
In any case, it is to point out that Brad Cofield is a mentally sick person, therefore I  appeal to all the American Mesons.

Appeal to all the American Mesons.

Take care of this mentally disturbed person, till it's too late.

NB. This writing of mine is for cautelative and preventive purposes. I will not be surprise if Brad Cofield, under a madness influence, could do something crazy, as a massacre in an American downtown.

Frank G. Ripel 100°
