“Urban II, French Prior of Cluny (Reformed Benedictines) becomes the pope. Urban was of the “Eudes” family, not only the name of the King of the Franks, Eudes, who ruled 888 to 898 and considered one of the antecedent kings of the Capetian House of France, but also the name of the Royal Capetian line of Burgundy, great grandson of Hugh Capet, Eudes I the RED of Burgundy who acceded 1079, NINE years before Urban (Eudes) became pope. And Eudes the Red acceded in that specific year because his brother, Hugh I of Burgundy, had abdicated to become the Prior of Cluny!  Now something is very amiss here ! Is this just coincidence ? Both were sons of Henry of Burgundy who married Sibylle of Barcelona. Henry was son of Robert I of Burgundy, who was the son of Hugh Capet. Barcelona, home of their mother, was part of the Spanish March connected to Septimania and, here too, the Duke of Aquitaine in 1012 was Eudes of Aquitaine ! And Aquitaine and Septimania are extremely significant :

It happens that Septimania (Languedoc) is exactly where the Jesus-Magdalene heresy flourished, and where there was a large population of Cathar Jews who were given independent status by Pepin, Carolingian King. Thence their own kings ruled as: “seed of the Royal House of David”, each acknowledged as “King of the Jews”...” - Ibid.

"[King] Phillip IV passed the [incriminating evidence] on to Pope Clement V and the king and the pontiff conspired to lure the Grand Master of the Order, Jacques de Molay, into a trap on French soil... In reality the wily king was plotting the downfall of the Templars and the death of de Molay. The knights were staying at the Templar citadel in Paris and on 13 October 1307 the king executed his plan. Troops surrounded the building and everyone inside was placed under arrest. Within forty-eight hours warrants had been issued ordering the detaining of every Templar in France... On 22 November... the Pope issued a bull to all the Christian rulers in Western Europe ordering them to arrest any member of the Order residing in their countries. The fate of the Templars was sealed." - (25:35,36)

“As the smoke from the slow fire choked the life from his body, Jacques de Molay [Grand Master of the Knights Templar] is said to have issued an imprecation from the flames. According to tradition he called his persecutors - Pope Clement and King Philippe - to join him and account for themselves before the court of God within the year. Within a month Pope Clement was dead… By the end of the year Philippe was dead as well…The Templars possessed great expertise in the use of poisons and there were certainly enough people about…to exact the appropriate vengeance. Nevertheless, the apparent fulfillment of the grand master's curse lent credence to belief in the orders occult powers. Nor did the curse end there…” - Holy Blood, Holy Grail, p. 79

Avignon Papacy (1309-1377) begins

"In the history of the Roman Catholic Church, the Avignon Papacy was the period from 1309 to 1377 during which seven popes, all French, resided in Avignon: Pope Clement V: 1305–1314; Pope John XXII: 1316–1334; Pope Benedict XII: 1334–1342; Pope Clement VI: 1342–1352; Pope Innocent VI: 1352–1362; Pope Urban V: 1362–1370; Pope Gregory XI: 1370–1378." - Wikipedia

202) Urban VI (1378-1389)

"In 1378, Gregory XI moved the papal residence back to Rome and died there. Due to a dispute over the subsequent election, a faction of cardinals set up an antipope back in Avignon: Clement VII: 1378–1394 / Benedict XIII: 1394–1423 (expelled from Avignon in 1403) This was the period of difficulty from 1378 to 1417 which Catholic scholars refer to as the 'Western schism' or, 'the great controversy of the antipopes' (also called 'the second great schism' by some secular and Protestant historians), when parties within the Catholic church were divided in their allegiances among the various claimants to the office of pope. The Council of Constance in 1417 finally resolved the controversy." - Wikipedia 

Western Schism (1378-1417) begins

"The Western Schism or Papal Schism (also known as the Great Schism of Western Christianity) was a split within the Catholic Church (1378 - 1417). By its end, three 'popes' (or one holy Pope and two unholy antipopes) claimed to be the true Bishop of Rome. Lacking any real theological or doctrinal underpinnings, being rather driven by politics, it was ended by the Council of Constance (1414). Simultaneous claims by three would-be Popes hurt the reputation of the office." - Wikipedia

"It should be remembered...that Sixtus IV (Pope, 1471-84) had himself translated seventy Cabalistic books into Latin, and that the concept of the 'Christian Cabala' was not peculiar to Italian thought." - 439:221

213) Innocent VIII (1484-1492)

"Innocent VIII, in his papal bull Summis desiderantes (5 December, 1484) instigated severe measures against magicians and witches in Germany; the principles enunciated by him were afterwards embodied in the Malleus Maleficarum (1487). It was also he who in 1487 appointed Tomas de Torquemada to be grand inquisitor of Spain; he was a strong supporter of the Spanish Inquisition; he also urged a crusade against the Waldensians, offering plenary indulgence to all who should engage in it. In 1486, he prohibited, on pain of severe ecclesiastical censures, the reading of the nine hundred propositions of Pico Mirandola." - Wikipedia

“…by the Bull Cum solerti meditatione pensamus of 1489, Pope Innocent VIII declared that the Perugia Superior's title of ‘Master’ should be accorded in perpetuity to the Grand Master of the Order of the Hospital of Saint John [Knights of Malta], depriving the Order of Canons of the Holy Sepulcher of its autonomous status.” - The Papal Orders

214) Alexander VI (1492-1503)

"Although condemned by a tribunal, Pico [della Mirandola]'s synthesis [of Hermetism and 'Christian Cabala'] was rehabilitated in 1493 by Alexander VI, whose recognition of the Cabalist as a loyal son of the Church seemed to give some authority to Pico's position." - 439:221

“Rodrigo Borgia…. Towards 1470 began his relations with the Roman lady, Vanozza Catanei, the mother of his four children… In 1497, Alexander decreed that the ‘Praefectus Sacrarii Pontificii’, commonly called ‘Sacristan of the Pope’, but virtually parish-priest of the Vatican and keeper of the Pope's conscience, should be permanently and exclusively a prelate chosen from the Augustinian Order, an arrangement that still endures.” – Catholic Encyclopedia

“The Hospitallers were delighted to have been granted the properties of the Canons [of the Holy Sepulcher under the Rule of Saint Augustine] even if, in practice, they were unable to enforce the Bull outside Italy. Although the union between these two Orders was maintained there, Alexander VI dissolved it in Germany by a further Bull of 4 November 1497, at the request of Maximilian, King of the Romans and Eberhard, Duke of Wurtemberg.” - The Papal Orders

215) Pius III (1503)


216) Julius II (1503-1513)

It is indeed a well-known fact that the Reformation was achieved by Luther, Calvin and Zwingli, but it is not so well-known that previously John Reuchlin (1455-1531), Pico de Mirandola’s disciple, shook the Christian conscience by suggesting as early as 1494 ‘that there was nothing higher than hebraic wisdom.’ And when in 1509 a renegade Jew, Joseph Pffefferkorn, had the Talmud seized and finally obtained, after several attempts, the definitive condemnation of this collective compendium which contains a thousand years of Jewish wisdom. John Reuchlin did not shrink from exposing himself to every menace and danger in order to defend before the Emperor and the Pope the extraordinary value of the Talmud, whose veritable meaning he had fathomed.  Reuchlin advocated returning to Jewish sources as well as to ancient texts. Finally, he won his case against the convert Pfefferkorn, who loudly demanded the destruction of the Talmud. ‘The new spirit which was to revolutionize the whole of Europe became apparent with regard to the Jews and the Talmud,’ wrote the historian Graetz.

"Lateran Council, Fifth 1512-17, 18th ecumenical council of the Roman Catholic Church, convened by Pope Julius II and continued by his successor Leo X [Giovanni de Medici].  Julius called the council to counter an attempt begun (1510) by Louis XII of France to revive the conciliar theory (i.e., that a council has the supreme power even over the pope), of a hundred years before...and thus precipitate a new schism."  124:1534

217) Leo X (1513-1521)

Pope Leo X [Giovanni de Medici, second son of Lorenzo the Magnificent] 388:144 [see House of Medici]; Fifth Lateran Council continued 1512-17. "Pope Leo X...received tonsure at age 7, was made an abbot at 8, and a cardinal at 13!" [They must have had big plans for Giovanni!]- 494:89 

“Leo X re-established the independence of the [Order of the Holy Sepulcher] Priories in Spain in a Bull of 13 March 1510 and a further Bull of 1513. …a history of the Holy Land by an early seventeenth century Custos [Guardian of the Holy Sepulchre] gives the date 1516, stating that the privilege [of investing Knights at the Tomb of Christ] was conferred by Pope Leo X.”– The Papal Orders

219) Clement VII (1523-1534)

Pope Clement VII [Jiulio de Medici, the bastard son of Giuliano de Medici and cousin of Leo X who appointed him Archbishop of Florence in 1523] 388:149

“…on October 1st, 1525 two senior Franciscans were received in audience by Clement VII to again seek validation of the eight principal privileges of the Custos [Guardians of the Holy Sepulchre], among which was that of creating knights. Fortunately this request was granted with the proviso that the knights they admitted should continue to do credit to the standing of the institution of knighthood of the Holy Sepulcher.” - The Papal Orders

220) Paul III (1534-1549)

“According to Life magazine, Pope Paul III (1534-1549) as a cardinal had fathered three sons and a daughter. On the day of his coronation he celebrated the baptism of his two great-grandchildren. He appointed two of his teenage nephews as cardinals, sponsored festivals with singers, dancers and jesters, and sought advice from astrologers."  Pope Paul III authorized formation of the Society of Jesus [Jesuits] in 1540. Council of Trent began [1545-63].

“In 1491 San Ignacio De Loyola was born in the Basque province of Guipuzcoa, Spain. His parents were Marranos and at the time of his birth the family was very wealthy. As a young man he became a member of the Jewish Illuminati Order in Spain. As a cover for his crypto Jewish activities, he became very active as a Roman Catholic... In 1539 he had moved to Rome where he founded the 'Jesuit Order,' which was to become the most vile, bloody and persecuting order in the Roman Catholic Church. In 1540, the current Pope Paul III approved the order. At Loyola’s death in 1556 there were more than 1000 members in the Jesuit order, located in a number of nations.

“Setting up the Jesuit order, Ignatius Loyola devised an elaborate spy system, so that no one in the order was safe.  ... The Jesuit order not only became a destructive arm of the Roman Catholic Church; it also developed into a secret intelligence service. While the Popes relied more and more on the Jesuits, they were unaware that the hardcore leadership were Jewish, and that these Jews held membership in the Illuminati Order which despised and hated the Roman Catholic Church.” - How the World Government Rules the Nations

223) Paul IV(1555-1559)

“Pope Paul IV permits the printing of the Zohar, book of medieval Jewish mysticism, at the same time he burns 12,000 other books; because he is persuaded that the Zohar contains no anti-Christian statements.” - Italy & the Jews Timeline; Council of Trent [1545-63]

224) Pius IV (1560-1565)

Pope Pius IV [Giovanni Angelo Medici]. "B. 31 March, 1499, at Milan; elected 26 December, 1559; d. in Rome 9 Dec., 1565.  The Medici of Milan lived in humble circumstances and the proud Florentine house of the same name claimed no kindred with them until Cardinal Medici was seated on the papal throne... The mildness of Pius IV in dealing with suspects of heresy, so different from the rigour of his predecessor, made many suspect his own orthodoxy." [Catholic Encyclopedia]; Pius IV ended the Council of Trent.

“…Cosimo I dei Medici, the Grand Duke of Tuscany…advised Pope Gregory on calendar reform… By 1582, the Gregorian calendar had been established, creating the modern year of 365 days and an occasional leap year of 366 days.” [New York Times, 10/25/99]

226) Gregory XIII (1572-1585)


227) Sixtus V (1585-1590)

"[The] obelisk at the entrance of St. Peter's in Rome...is the very same obelisk that stood in Egypt in ancient times... [Emperor] Caligula, in 37-41 A.D., had the obelisk now at the Vatican brought from Heliopolis, Egypt, to the circus on the Vatican Hill, where now stands St. Peters... In 1586, in order to center it in front of the church in St. Peters square, it was moved to its present location by order of Pope Sixtus V." - 494:32

235) Urban VIII (1623-1644)

"Magic even penetrated to the papal closet.  Pope Urban VIII, a firm believer in astrology...used to irritate his cardinals by predicting the dates of their deaths... In the papal prisons at this time was the renegade Dominican Tommaso Campanella, who...practiced magic; and it seems fairly certain that while he and the Pope were closeted together the pair were taking measures against the dangerous eclipse of the moon that January." - 439:221-2

Condemned Jansenism of Pasquier Quesnel – Sodalitium 11/99

“[Jansenism] was for the most part a movement within the Roman Catholic church that, throughout the better part of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, looked to re-establish within the church of Rome the Augustinian belief in the total depravity of man, and the doctrine of predestination… To perhaps gain a small piece of assurance of their salvation, Jansenists developed a puritanical piety that the Catholic church considered to be grounded in an elitist mentality. The Church feared that in Jansenism, ‘salvation appeared to be inaccessible to the ordinary mortal.’ ‘For the good Jansenist, the ‘world’ offered too many distractions and diversions capable of turning his mind from God and therefore removing him from the state of grace.’ Jansenists made it their central goal to remove themselves from ‘the world’ and its temptations; often times giving up their secular lives and vocations to embark upon an ascetic retreat from the world. Not long after the death of [Flemish theologian and bishop, Cornelius Otto] Jansen and the publication of Augustinius, Jansenism began to form into a movement, and it wasn't long before it began to win adherents.”- Calvinists & Jansenists

“…in 1738…Pope Clement XII introduced his IN EMINENTI APOSTOLATUS SPECULA, being the first Papal Bull against Freemasonry.” – Rosicrucian History

247) Benedict XIV (1740-1758)

“The privileges [of the Guardians of the Holy Sepulchre] were…not detailed specifically until Benedict XIV, in the Bull ‘In supremo militantis Ecclesia’" of 7 February 1746, regulated the taxes and other formalities for the admission of knights by the ‘Minister-General’ of the Order of Brothers of Saint Francis. Most significant in this last act was the Pope's decision to lift the requirement to fight the Turks, recognition that the era of crusading had ended.” - The Papal Orders

“1749. On 17th January, Joseph Torrubia (a Roman Catholic priest living in Spain) secures permission from the pope to become a Freemason so as to find out who and what are Freemasons. As a result of joining the Order he compiled a list of who belonged to the Order. In March, Torrubia gives a list of 97 Lodges to the Grand Inquisition, which caused the arrest and punishment of members by the Inquisition.

249) Clement XIV (1769-1774)


250) Pius VI (1775-1799)

Condemned Jansenism of Scipion de Ricci – Sodalitium 11/99

“[Jansenism] was for the most part a movement within the Roman Catholic church that, throughout the better part of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, looked to re-establish within the church of Rome the Augustinian belief in the total depravity of man, and the doctrine of predestination… At the heart of Calvinist theology and Jansenist theology are the ideas and beliefs of Saint Augustine of Hippo.”- Calvinists & Jansenists

251) Pius VII (1800-1823)

Early in the 19th century the Pope came to the Rothschilds to borrow money. The Rothschilds were very friendly with the Pope, causing one journalist to sarcastically say Rothschild has kissed the hand of the Pope... Order has been reestablished. The Rothschilds in fact over time were entrusted with the bulk of the Vatican's wealth.  The Jewish Ency., vol. 2, p. 497 states, It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time (1905) the latter are guardians of the papal treasure. Researcher Eustace Mullins writes that the Rothschilds took over all the financial operations of the worldwide Catholic Church in 1823.  Today the large banking and financial business of the Catholic Church is an extensive system interlocked with the Rothschilds and the rest of the International Banking system.  (77:154)

“…Pius VII (Cont. Ecclesian a Jesu Christi, the 13th September 1821) followed the path of both [Clement XII and Benedict XIV’s condemnation of Freemasonry]…” Vinay, p. 97

252) Leo XII (1823-1829)

“…Leo XII. Who in the Papal Status Quo graviora (Const. data the 13 Martii 1825) incorporated in this material the orders [against Freemasonry] passed by his predecessors, authorized and confirmed the same for ever…” Vinay, pp. 97-8

253) Pius VIII (1829-1830)

“…Pius VII. (Encyc. Traditi, the 21 Maii 1829)…” [condemned Freemasonry] – Vinay, p. 98

254) Gregory XVI (1831-1846)

“Mickiewicz [was] part of the "spiritual posterity of Joachim of Fiore,.. In 1831, Mickiecz met the ‘prophet of La Chesnaie’ [Lamennais] in Paris, and they became friends: they were nicknamed, with reason, "the Pilgrims of the future".… Lamennais’ ideas, expressed in his journal, L’Avenir, had already been condemned by Gregory XVI in his August 15, 1832 encyclical, Mirari Vos, but the Pope, hoping that he would turn away from his errors, had refrained from naming the unfortunate priest. – (508)

…Gregor XVI (Encyc. Mirari, the 15th Augusti 1835) [condemned Freemasonry] – Vinay, p. 98

“The cult of the Virgin received fresh papal encouragement during the pontificate of Gregory XVI (1831-46), who promised indulgences to those who wore medals in honor of the Immaculate Conception…” - 439:134

255) Pius IX (1846-1878)

“…Piux IX (Encyc. Qui pluribus, the 9. Novemb. 1816 (sic). Alloc. Multiplices inter, the 25. Septemb. 1865 etc.) naturally spoke repeatedly in the same sense [against the danger of Freemasonry]. – Vinay, p. 98

“1846. Pope Pius IX issues his Papal Bull Qui Fluribus on Nov 9th, against the Craft.

“1849. Pope Pius IX issues his Papal Bull Quibus quantisque Malis on April 20th, against the Craft.” – Freemasonry From Antiquity

“Pius IX’s condemnation of socialism and secret societies in the same breath was largely the result of his personal observation of …the confusion of which he saw as the product of the agitation of these Satanic forces… Pius IX had repeated the fulminations of his predecessor [against Freemasonry] the year after his Syllabus [of Errors] was issued…” - 439:144

“Pope Pius IX issues his Papal Bull Apostolicae Sedis on Oct 12th, against the Craft.

“Pope Pius IX issues his Papal Bull Esti Multa on Nov 21st, against the Craft.” – Freemasonry From Antiquity

“The official proclamation in 1870 of the doctrine of Papal infallibility came as one stage in a process… Under Pius IX (‘the Romantic on the papal throne) the dogma of the Immaculate Conception was finally proclaimed.” - 439:134

“By a Brief dated 23 July 1847, Pius IX put the Guardian of the Holy Places under the authority of the newly re-established Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem and, in December of the same year, conceded the right to make knights to the Patriarch. This document reads, in article VIII, ‘all the regulations concerning the knights of the Holy Sepulcher and established earlier remain valid…it is decreed that the conferral of this Order pertains to the Patriarch...’ Twenty-one years later, by the Brief Cum multa supienter of 24 January 1868, the same Pope reformed the Order, placing it under direct Papal control with the Patriarch as ‘Administrator’ and ‘Rector’ acting in the name of the Holy See.” - The Papal Orders

“1864. Between 21st and 24th May, Guiseppe Garibaldi unites all Masonic groups on Italy.” – Freemasonry From Antiquity

256) Leo XIII (1878-1903)

“1884. Pope Leo XIII issues his Papal Bull Humanum Genus on April 20th, against the Craft. This is the last Papal Bull directed against Freemasonry. Over a period of 146 years a total of 13 Bulls were issued.” – Freemasonry From Antiquity

“…Leo XIII’s encyclical, Humanum genus, explicitly denounced the Masons as attempting to overthrow Christianity.” 439:144

“…in the December 8, 1892 letter addressed to the Italian people, His Holiness Leo XIII…said that ‘Christianity and Freemasonry are essentially irreconcilable, so that to join the one is to divorce the other.’” [Jouin: The Secret Society, Jan. 1912]

   “According to the example of our predecessors we have now resolved to openly turn ourselves against the Freemasonic society, against the system of their doctrine, against their manner of feeling and acting, to ever more make clear their harmful power and thus to prevent infection by such a destructive plague… The good tree can bring forth no bad fruits, nor can the bad tree bring forth good fruits (Matth. Chap. VII. V. 18) and the fruits of Freemasonry are harmful and in addition very sour.  For from the completely reliable proofs we have mentioned previously, is revealed the ultimate and last and most principal of their intentions: To destroy the foundations of every religious and civic order, which has been erected by Christianity, and after their own manner erect a new order with foundations and laws, which they took from the essence of Naturalism.” – Vinay, p. 98, quoting Leo XIII, Humanum Genus

 “By the Brief Venerabilis frater of August 3rd, 1888, Pope Leo XIII authorized the concession of the cross in three classes to ladies who have served the church with particular merit - this became the first Order under direct Papal supervision which could be conceded to ladies.” - The Papal Orders

“Pope Leo XIII establishes an Anti-Masonic Bureau.” - Freemasonry From Antiquity

257) St. Pius X (1903-1914)

“Against the background of continuing Mariolatry—with Pius X (1903-14) Mary, the ‘corredemtrix,’ was held up as the best means of knowing Christ—the popular and instinctive flight from reason found expression in a new age of the miraculous.”-  439:134

“In a communication published in the Osservatore Romano on March 14, 1906, the Holy Sepulcher was included as the fifth Papal Order after Saint Sylvester with the provision that the Pope reserved to himself and the Cardinal Grand Chancellor of Equestrian Orders (a post now merged with that of Secretary of State) supreme authority, while according the Latin Patriarch the title of Grand Master and the right to award the Order. By a further reform the following year in the brief Quam multa (May 3, 1907), Saint Pius X took the title of Sovereign Head and Grand Master of the Sacred Military Order himself, appointing the Patriarch pro tempore Lieutenant of the Grand Magistery with the right to nominate knights.” - The Papal Orders

258) Benedict XV (1914-1922)


259) Pius XI (1922-1939)

“By an Apostolic Letter of January 6, 1928, the Pope relinquished the title of Grand Master [of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre] while the Patriarch became ‘Perpetual Chief and Administrator’ with the Order was now converted from being a Papal Order to an Order under Papal protection.” - The Papal Orders

260) Pius XII (1939-1958)

“The campaign of rapprochement between Freemasonry and the Church remained in a latent state under Pius XII’s pontificate; the fire burned under the ashes, but the progressivists who had seized considerable influence realized that their efforts had no chance of coming to the fore with Pius XII.” (545)

261) John XXIII (1959-1963)

“If John XXIII interrupted the chain of condemnations and excommunications accumulated by all of his predecessors in being silent on Masonry, it cannot however be said that he was neutral on this subject. According to the experts’ unanimous consensus, it is under his pontificate that was begun the volte face, and that for the first time dialogue was opened. We present the evidence: Dupuy, the Grand master of the Grand Lodge of France, declared that ‘John XXIII and Vatican II provided formidable impetus to the task of clarification, and to reciprocal détente in the relations between the Church and Masonry.’… It was John XXIII who broke the ice with a measure that passed completely in silence, authorizing Protestants converted to Catholicism and initiated into Masonry to remain peacefully in the lodges. Since then, signs of contact have multiplied… John XXIII’s governance changed the 100 year intransigence of the Church vis a vis Masonry into an overture which resulted in permitting dual membership in the Church and in Masonry.”- (545)

262) Paul VI (1963-1978)

“1964. On 29th Dec, Bishop Mendez Arceo of Mexico, expresses his view at Vatican II that Roman Catholics should make peace with the Freemasons of the World…

“Alec Mellor (a Roman Catholic) publishes Our Separated Brethren - The Freemasons. He later becomes a Freemason and a member of Phoenix Lodge of Research No 30 (GLNF).” - Freemasonry From Antiquity

“…that Masonry is an association in which all Christians have a place---John XXIII and Paul VI understood very well… Le grandi concoranze tra Chiesa e Massoneria (‘The major agreements between the Church and Masonry’)…didn’t exist between the Church and Masonry, but only between the latter and John XII, Paul VI, and John Paul II.”- (545)

“…on March 7, 1965, Paul VI celebrated Mass in the vernacular, which became the general rule.” Sodalitium 11/99

“1968. Bro Harry Carr meets with Cardinal Heenan in London on 8th March to discuss the relationship of Freemasonry and the Roman Catholic Church. As a result of these discussions, the anti-Masonic tracts sold in Roman Catholic churches in London are removed from the stacks…

“1971. Bro Harry Carr has several more conferences with Cardinal Heenan. This leads to a friendly relationship developing between the Craft and the Roman Catholic Church. On 26th April it is rumoured that the Church is about to change its rule about barring Masonic membership to its members.” - Freemasonry From Antiquity

263) John Paul I (1978)

    “Specifically, the Knights of Malta, Italian Masonic lodge 'P2', and Holy Roman Empire restorationists 'The Priory of Sion' have all been proven to be linked to the hierarchy of the Vatican.  Global members of these fascist groups participate at the highest levels of the military, international politics, and finance. 'P2' (Propaganda 2) are perhaps the most visible, and are named after the propaganda machine of Nazi Joseph Goebbels, that effectively mind controlled the German people into believing their Rosicrucian racist ideology that led to the Holocaust.
P2 has been linked to the Mafia, and directly implicated in the death of Pope John Paul I in 1978, as revealed by the acclaimed book 'In God's Name' by respected journalist David Yallop. It is widely known that Pope John Paul I demanded resignations from Vatican insiders who were members of P2, and were involved in major money laundering for the Mafia through the Vatican Bank.  He also planned a complete reshuffle of the staff in the power structure of the Vatican.  The next night he was found dead in his room with a list of names scattered over his body, and was promptly buried without an autopsy.  Those listed were retained, and many were promoted to positions of more responsibility and power... (Neo-Nazis)

264) John Paul II (1978-

“1979. Pope John Paul II visits Chicago while the Grand Lodge is in session. The Grand Master and Grand Wardens, by special invitation, attend a Mass conducted by the Pope in Grant Park.” - Freemasonry From Antiquity, (508)
