Abstract: Towards the end of the 20th century, there began to develop a public perception that the Freemason Order is related to the different Satanic cults and the order of enlightened thinkers that existed in Bavaria at the end of the 18th century, the Illuminati. In addition, the different conspiracy theories maintain that the Illuminati, using the Freemasons, act to take over the world through the control of the power centers in the world. But a more in-depth examination of the history and of the doctrines of the two orders indicates that these are two different orders that were established at different times under a different ideological doctrine, one in the British version and one in a non-British version. Although there are individual Freemasons who are members in Memphis-Misraim and in regular Freemason orders, it is possible to determine that Memphis-Misraim was established as separate from the regular Freemason order and includes a completely different learning theory that emphasizes mysticism.
