Just three years after Pope Clement XIV's suppression of the Jesuits, the subversive organization called the "Illuminati" was purportedly founded by a trained Jesuit named Adam Weishaupt in 1776.  Weishaupt was a Jew and a professor of canon law at Ingolstadt University, which was a Jesuit University and the center of the Jesuit counter-reformation.  Alberto Rivera, a former Jesuit priest, stated that the occult Illuminati organization was not founded by Weishaupt, as many believe, but in fact was established long before Weishaupt. The Illuminati is in fact a reincarnation of the ancient Alumbrados , whose one time leader was Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits.  The Illuminati was established by Lorenzo Ricco, the Jesuit General, in 1776, who used his disciple, Adam Weishaupt, as the front man for the new organization (which was not really new at all). The Jesuits, having just been suppressed by the pope in 1773, found it necessary to establish the Illuminati, which was an alliance between the Jesuits and the very powerful Ashkenazi Jewish Banking House of Rothschild. The purpose of Weishaupt initially was to avenge the papal suppression of the Jesuits by rooting out all religion and overturning the governments of the world, bringing them under a single world government, controlled, of course, by the Illuminati, under the authority of their god. That world government is commonly referred to by the Illuminati as the "New World Order." The god of the Illuminati is Satan.
