The Rite of Misraïm

This Rite is closely connected to the Jesuits and the
Knights of Malta
trough Cagliostro and his misterious Master the Prince
of San Severo :

A brief introduction from Wiki:

From as early as 1738, one can find traces of this
Rite filled with alchemical, occult and Egyptian
references, with a structure of 90 degrees. Joseph
Balsamo, called Cagliostro, a key character of his
time, gave the Rite the impulse necessary for its
development. Very close to the Grand Master of the
Order of the Knights of Malta, Manuel Pinto de
Fonseca,[citation needed] Cagliostro founded the Rite
of High Egyptian Masonry in 1784. He received, between
1767 and 1775, from Sir Knight Luigi d’Aquino, the
brother of the national Grand Master of Neapolitan
Masonry, the Arcana Arcanorum, which are three very
high hermetic degrees. In 1788, he introduced them
into the Rite of Misraïm and gave a patent to this


The hermetic society - which continued in the
centuries under different denominations - known as
“Neapolitan School”, claims the right to be the oldest
Alchemical Transmutation School in the West up to

In the times of Emperor Augustus a small
Egyptian-Jewish colony settled in Naples (in the area
known today as Piazza Nilo) where for over two
thousand years the oral transmission of transmutation
techniques imported from their own land got

According to a rather forcedly approximate
reconstruction, we know today that there were three
teaching levels. In the first level, theoretically,
one could learn the fundamentals of Hermetism: the
analog science, symbolism (which in the Neapolitan
School  was extremely rich and detailed with respect
to other hermetic schools) and also the “art of

In the second level one could start the real
transmutation work and according to a superb technique
–of mitraic ancient origin characterized by a special
kind of sexual magic called “osiridean”. In the third
level, the transmutation student could use two
techniques of  individual mastering for the purpose of
giving him  superior mental powers and starting the
regeneration of the physical body.

Because of their secret connection to the Jesuits and
their links to Freemasonry and the Knights of Malta ,
around the  middle of the eighteen century this
illuminati School decided to originate three systems
of High Masonic Ranks, each allegorically describing
the symbolism of the three levels of teaching: the
Rite of Memphis for the first level, the Rite of
Misraim for the second and the Egyptian Freemasonry. 

The Memphis and Misraim Rites both started in Naples
through the work of a number of remarkable people from
the School. Among them we remember Prince Raimondo
Sangro di San Severo (1710-1771) who commissioned the
building of the extraordinary hermetic monument, San
Severo Chapel in Naples, and Baron Henry Theodore de
Tschoudi (1724-1769) author of the Masonic catechism
“The Flaming Star” .Between the two Rituals, the
Memphis Ritual was entirely speculative from the very
beginning. No transmutation operative ritual was to be
found besides its very rich symbolic content.

The Misraim Rite instead was retaining and practicing
from the begining in its higher ranks the influence of
some of the most influential osiridean rituals of the
School: the so called Stair of Naples, or “Arcana
Arcanorum”. Pretty soon both of the Rites started to
be part of the international Freemasonic conspiracy
created to help the Jesuit cause (where they could
spread thanks to Jesuit friend Jean– Marie Ragon, the
famous  historian of the Scottish Ritual) .Very
similar to each other, Memphis and Misraim Rites
melted  together and eventually they separated several
times during the course of events. The definitive
fusion, in 1908, originated what regular Freemasonry
recognizes today as “Ancient and Primitive Memphis and
Misraim Rite”. The Arcana of the illuminati of Memphis
and Mizraim  kept on being handed on through different
screen-organizations connected to the School in deep
secrecy. In 1897, in Paris, the occultist Sedir (Yvon
Le Loup; 1871- 1926) published the paraphrased version
in a short essay called “The Magic Venus”, but the
obscurity of his hermetic terminology prevented full
understanding of the details. The complete ritual was
not completely divulged until 1988, when a small
publishing house from Milan published it in an
unabridged edition, against the will of the School.
The volume in limited edition, sold out after a few

To continue, the Arcana of the illuminati consist of
three degrees or ritual cycles bringing to mastery
plus a “High Arcane”(Secretum  Secretorum).Their
calendar runs according to the lunar cycle, and the 9
days of ritual fasting, during which one must follow
complete chastity). The osiridean transmutation work
is performed in pairs: by a woman and a man. The first
degree performed by a man consists in a
self–assimilation of his sperm, obtained by a
self-sexual magic; the short cycle which is more used
, covers forty operations, one every 9 days, during
one year activity . As for the woman, the sperm is
replaced by a microscopic sample of menstrual blood.

After the end of the year a third ingredient
(differently diversified) is added to the sperm and
blood and the compound is drunk over a cyclic period
of fasting and light meals still insisting on these
numbers: 9, 6, 3 and 1.

In the second degree these operations are repeated
(with light variations), by combining all the three
ingredients together.

The third degree is based on couple sexual practice
where the philosophical amalgam (the three elements
together) is “cooked” through the three passages
called “Black Mercury”, ”White Mercury” and “Red
Mercury” (three different sexual practices performed
in pairs: one of sodomy, one  without sperm emission
and one during menstruation). A new philosophical
amalgam will be obtained. Once it is swallowed it
should cause the sprouting of the energetic body
(called “Body of glory” according to the School

The final level or Major Arcane, is based on five
retreats performed in darkness, each lasting seven
days, with a decreasing number of sexual performances
(9, 6, 3, 1 and then none, replaced by breathing
exercises) where one comes back to the assimilation of
one element only (sperm or blood) plus a third
ingredient; the absence of light encourages the
development of the body of glory and its

Only after having finished this work could the
illuminati transmutation student, from The School of
Naples, face the advanced rituals of the third level,
which Cagliostro has handed on through Egyptian

The commission to create it  was given to him by
Cavalier Luigi D’Aquino (1739-1783) who according to
the tradition was his initiator as well.

Cagliostro met him in Malta in 1766 and stayed with
him in Naples in 1773, to receive the instructions
which enabled him to found the Egyptian Freemasonry,
in Paris, in the same year his master passed away.

The system he created is not, in Masonic terms, a
Rite, but an Order: it does not deal with the High
Degrees .Rather it deals with the three “Blue Degrees”
of Freemasonry (Apprentice, Fellow-craft and Master)
integrated with the thick hermetic symbolism
Cagliostro added to it.

Later on because of this device, it developed as a
kind of parallel Freemasonry totally independent from
the body of the “regular” Freemasonry and practiced
only in secret by the illuminati families. This fact
allowed Cagliostro to admit women too, although still
excluded from the “regular” Lodges, and it gave the
necessary independence to prevent the danger of a
forced suspension of the transmutation activity. This
inconvenience was threatening the Rite of Misraim
exactly in those years.

When the level of Master is achieved, an opportunity
is offered to the Egyptian  Brother or the Sister to
engage in the famous “Quarantine”, two operations of
transmutation, lasting 40 days each.

The first Quarantine: "How to achieve the Pentagon and
become morally perfect" has to be practiced by
thirteen Masters together. Strongly hybridized with
magic-cabalistic elements, occasionally reminiscent of
the Sacred Magic by Abramelin, had the  purpose of
sharpening the subtle faculties of the Master’s body
of glory to give him the capacity to correctly explain
the enigmatic instructions of the second Quarantine:
“How to  rejuvenate and become physically perfect”

The following text is almost the unabridged version,
written by Cagliostro himself, as handed down from the
many Egyptian Lodges still existing today (especially
in southern France with illuminati Brothers like Jean
Pierre Giudicelli also a member of the Monte Carlo
Lodge) :

 “The Aspirant has to retreat with a friend in the
countryside  on a full moon night and locked inside a
room he has to suffer from a very exhausting diet for
forty days time. The diet consists of scarce food
based on light soups and tender cooling laxative
vegetables, distilled water beverages or May rain.
Each meal must to start with a liquid, a drink and end
with a solid snack as a biscuit or bread crust.

On the seventeenth day of this retreat after a small
emission of blood, he will start taking some white
drops of secret composition. He will have to take six
of them in the morning and evening, adding two a day
till the thirty-second day. Another blood emission is
taken on this day at sunset, the following day he
stays in bed till the end of the Quarantine. Then he
starts taking the first grain of Original Matter, the
same that God has created in order to give man
immortality. Because of sin, man has lost the
knowledge of it. It can’t be conquered other than by a
favor from the Eternal, and  Masonic work.“

“After having taken this grain the one who is going to
rejuvenate becomes unconscious for three hours and in
convulsions he sweats and evacuates continuously.
After having come to himself and changed bed he must
be fed with a pound of fat free  beef and cooling
herbs. If this food makes him feel better on the
following day he is given the second grain of Original
Matter in a cup of broth that besides the effect of
the first grain will cause him a very strong delirious
 fever .He will lose the skin, and the teeth and hair
will fall out. On the following thirty-fifth day if
the patient recovers his strength, he will soak in a
bath for one hour in neither cold or hot water. On the
thirty-sixth day he will have his third and last grain
of Original Matter in a glass of vintage and generous
wine that will make him sleep quietly and peacefully.
Then the hair grows back, the teeth too and the skin
gets healed. When he wakes up he soaks in new aromatic
bath and on the thirty-eighth day he will have a bath
in plain water mixed with niter .Later on  he gets
dressed and starts walking in his room, then on the
thirty-ninth day, he takes ten drops of Balsam of the
Great Master along with two spoons of red wine.  On
the fortieth day he will leave the house, rejuvenated
and perfectly recharged”.
