Johannite Order

“The members of this group (Johannites) claimed that they alone were in possession of the inner mysteries of Christ. The supreme pontiffs of the Johannites assumed the title of “Christ” and claimed an uninterrupted transmission of power from the days of St. John.” -Orders of the Quest, The Holy Grail (Adept Series) by Manly P. Hall pg 30 

“The Johannites claimed to possess ancient records to the effect that when Jesus was a small child he was adopted by a Rabbi named Joseph, who carried him into Egypt where he was initiated into the occult sciences. The priests of Osiris, regarding him as the long-promised incarnation of Horus expected by the adepts, finally consecrated him Sovereign-Pontiff of the universal religion.” -Orders of the Quest, The Holy Grail (Adept Series) by Manly P. Hall pg 31

The Knights Templar and Johannite Order

“At the time of Hugh de Payers, Theocletes was the living “Christ” of the Johannites. He communicated to the founders of the Temple the ideas of a sovereign priesthood of dedicated and initiated men united for the purpose of overthrowing the bishops of Rome and the establishment of universal civil liberty. The secret object of the Johannites was the restoration of the esoteric tradition and the gathering of mankind under the one eternal religion of the world. ” -Orders of the Quest, The Holy Grail (Adept Series) by Manly P. Hall pg 31

“As the Order of the Templars, therefore, was originally formed in Syria, and existed there for a considerable time, it would be no improvable supposition that they received their Masonic knowledge from the Lodges in that quarter. But we are fortunately in this case not left to conjecture, for we are expressly informed by a foreign author,. who was well acquainted with the history and customs of Syria, that the Knights Templar were actually members of the Syriac Fratemities.” To understand the forces operating behind the Knights Templars, it is necessary to examine the doctrines of the Johannite Order of Oriental Christians.”-Orders of the Quest, The Holy Grail (Adept Series) by Manly P. Hall pg 30,31

The Templars, like all other Secret Orders and Associations, had two doctrines, one concealed and reserved for the Masters, which was Johannism; the other public, which was the Roman Catholic. ” morals and dogma p817 by Albert Pike 

“Thus, from the beginning, the knights of the Temple served two doctrines. One was concealed from all except the leaders and certain trusted members; the other, publicly stated and practiced for the sake of appearances, conformed with the regulations of the Church. “- Orders of the Quest, The Holy Grail (Adept Series) by Manly P. Hall pg 32

“The Epic of Dante is Johannite and Gnostic, an audacious application, like that of the Apocalypse, of the figures and numbers of the Kabalah to the Christian dogmas, and a secret negation of every thing absolute in these dogmas.”  – Morals and Dogma p822  Albert Pike
