THE OLIGARCHY OF THE MYSTERIES OF ILÚ SABBATH®
Generally when we speak of iniciatic society, we usually assotiate it with fearful orders of the Middle Ages with their macabre rites, dream-interpreting litany of satanism and the stories of virgin and children sacrifices. These led, in many parts of Europe, to terror and death in many towns and even kingdoms, with their sorceres and witches around great pyres on clearings on top of mountains, where thier chants, litanies and laughts strangely echoed through many miles around. Turning, then, even more unbearable the nightmare of the poor aillagers on endless nights of watching, who called to all saints for their souls and the lives of their children. Such stories were exaustly explored by literature and trash movies. Gladly not all iniciation orders of the Medieval periods were maleficious. There were groups of witches and sorcerers who dedicated their lives in favor of their alikes. They always practiced their rituals in caves or dungeons, away from the curious looks and the inquisitor spies , grouped strictly with family, keeping a severe social and religious life folowing the patterns of the times. Occulting their real beliefs to escape the confrontation with the chiefs of State ans the Church, in their majority, envolved with malefic magick that when found these "filantropos", exterminated them, including their caln. In this extraordinary universe of the Middle Ages, is where the organization of Ilú Sabbath was born. Na oligarchy ( restricted to family) whose first founders were conquererswho were Arabic, Jewish, and specialy a prince of nomad tribes from the deserts of Morroco, Tunisia and Libia. Through aliances with families envolved with the culture and oriental magick, Ilú Sabbath evoluteing and surviving for all these centuries. These aliances, in their majority, were with spanish and hebrew nobleness., whose ancestors, until the beggining of the eighteenth century were absolute lords of the entire Andaluzia, which starts from the Cordilheira dos Pirineus to the Mediteranean on the South of Spain. The Benitez dominated from Sevilha to Cordoba, the Orthiz dominated the rest of the Lest until the frontier with Portugal. In a cowardly political plot of the Church with the King, the main nobles of each family were captured in ambushes and executed. The Genereal Governor of Andaluzia, Cont Benithez, was executed and his members were exposed in strategic cities of Andaluzia. The church and th eKing took possesion of all the patrimony. But the mission with magick and noblety stayed with the family. Councelling the meetings of the Council of the court on the kingdom of the queen Maria Cristina and Juan Carlos I, with the secret meetings of the leaders of the revolution, the well konwn Spanish Civil War. Magick was always present in the orientations and the votings as well as in the Councils of the court, as in the meetings of the revolution. Above all, the magick of Ilú Sabbath was always to unite the sperse, fight for justice and liberty, give light and knowledge of the misteries to those who craved the stability and conscience of the physical and ethereal Nature.
The brotherhood was born 834 years ago, on the period of Califado of Andaluz. The union of the families: Benithez, Orthiz, Baiaratero, Sevilla, Prado, Kaifas, Bourbon, alied the mistic powers of the wise sorcerers of the Orient, with the French and Spanish noblety. French through the aliance of a Benithez baroness with Napoleon Bonaparte I, son of the emperor, where he was absolved to the ulture of voodooo, specialy of the orienta spells and enchantments, making the rich totems of the brotherhood even more rich. The britherhood never abandoned the aflicted that asked for their help, specially during the war, where various leaders were from the family or followers of the Brotherhood, in a period of misunderstandings, misery, and a lot of social inequality, violence and terror. As in the begining, the brotherhood keeps the same goals: manipulate with concience and develop the misteries of High magick, finding balance with God and with the elementals, help and orient those who search the light, peace and conquest, love and happyness, conceed knowledge of the ethereal chemistry of the vegetable, aquatic, arial and mineral worlds.With effect, we are composed of positive and negative energies, like everything that there is in the physical universe. In magick, all forces and power are necessary, without tendencies of black or white. Magick is the mother of all the sciences and all religions, the crib of the misteries of evolution. That is the Brotherhood of Ilú Sabbath, an organization without dogmaticattachments , independent of ethical concepts, moral, social, and sexual prejudice, always searching for evolution and stability. Without congregations, but always with the doors open for those who search for conscience, stability, wisdom, spiritual and material conquest, victory.
