Sabbatianism and Frankism: The spiritual crisis in the West, seen through 2 heretical messianic movements of the 17th and 18th centuries

[last update of the bibliography: 3/10/2019]

This article is the translation of the original article published in French. : "La crise spirituelle en Occident, vue au travers de deux mouvements messianiques hérétiques des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles."


« In recent centuries, there has been a considerable change, much more serious than any deviations that may have occurred before in times of decadence, since it has even led to a real reversal in the direction given to human activity; and it was exclusively in the Western world that this change began. » 
(René Guénon, La Crise du Monde moderne, 1927, Chap. 2, p.21)

The world, and first and foremost the West, is in crisis. A crisis that is at once financial, monetary, economic, social, geostrategic, political, scientific, energy, and at the same time sees an erosion of morals and morals as well as an ecological crisis. 
This great crisis is of a particular character that we call, like others long before us, the crisis of the spirit.

We must necessarily understand the deep origin of this one in order to overcome it. A spiritual crisis can only be fully resolved by starting with the restoration of the spiritual, that is, metaphysical, plane. Guénon, then Evola, have already explained the main supporters in a masterful way. We are part of this continuity.

We choose to approach the spiritual crisis in the West, studying it here from a point of view limited to the traces in history of certain extremely particular religious movements that appeared from the 17th century onwards, whose existence and influence are still largely unknown.

Our general approach is first and foremost a bibliographical compilation of works by world-class specialists, published in French, English and German and whose authors have followed an academic historiographical approach based on works written in Hebrew, Aramaic, Polish, Latin, Turkish, French and German, which are the primary historical references.

A very large part is deliberately left to quotations from excerpts from these works.

This approach to the history of religions is necessarily complemented in conclusion by some reflections on the philosophy of human history, and by elements of metaphysics.

Some people may be tempted to label this work with the suitcase word "conspiracy theory". This leads us to several remarks:

1- On the other hand, these works show the real practice of conspiracy, which extends over several centuries. They are based exclusively on a compilation of historical data based on a first-rate bibliography covering several centuries. By conspiracy we mean the following definition: "explicitly coordinated action by a small group acting for morally or legally reprehensible purposes without the knowledge of the greatest number" (for other definitions, see the collective book edited by David Coady, Conspiracy Theories: The Philosophical Debate, 2006).

Our study clearly highlights 3 key points for such large-scale conspiracy practice:
  • it is possible to carry out a strategy distributed over a large number of individuals, using a well-established socio-religious matrix;
  • the question of maintaining a lasting secret when the number of people involved increases is not a key point; the study of the multiple denunciations of Frankism, whatever the level of the interlocutor who receives this denunciation, shows that the more terrible the secret really is, the more incredible it seems, and the less credible or effective the revelation is. This disbelief can last for centuries;
  • the actions of the conspirators have public effects, but it is possible to protect these actions permanently from decryption by other agents, if the phase of actions has been preceded by a phase of subversion, penetration, corruption, the result of which is that the main agents who would otherwise have an interest in specifying the intentions of the conspirators actually become their passive or active accomplices.
2- The use of the term "conspiracy theory" is a simple rhetorical device whose current negative connotation serves to disqualify the opponent without debate. This manipulation technique only works with poorly educated minds, and it was instrumentalized by the American Deep State in the 1960s. Here is another example of instrumentalization: BHL, lu et approuvé par la CIA, or this other one.

3- The use of this term is most often associated with the terms "Jewish conspiracy" or "Freemason conspiracy". For the first, we show that this is not the case: the Sabbateans / Frankists are not Jews, since they have been excommunicated (herem) several times by traditional rabbinical authorities. For the second, Guénon explained that "counter-initiation" had infiltrated these groups (as it has done over the decades for almost all the "secret societies" that had an influence, cf. the Order of the Brothers of Saint John the Evangelist of Asia in Europe), until it was able to reverse in some loges its essential purpose. Freemasons currently represent only pawns that are not fully aware of the manipulation they undergo and the real objectives pursued, or, in the best of cases, they are neutralized, without influence.

4- It is always interesting to look in detail at the biographies of those who use this term to kill the debate.

Our approach of patiently compiling information through ordinary, prosaic, but robust knowledge production and testing practices may seem modest. But it has the merit of developing useful capacities in many fields of knowledge, and undoubtedly also for the lucid vigilance that is the hallmark of real citizen debates, to use the words of Dr. Mathias Girel, Director of Studies at the Department of Philosophy of the ENS of the rue d'Ulm.

 « ; and, given the state of intellectual anarchy in which the West is plunged, everything happens as if it were a question of drawing from the very disorder, and from everything that is agitated in chaos, all the possible benefit for the realization of a strictly determined plan. We do not want to insist on this too much, but it is very difficult for us not to return to it from time to time, because we cannot accept that an entire race is purely and simply struck by a kind of madness that has lasted for several centuries, and there must be something that gives meaning, despite everything, to modern civilization; we do not believe in chance, and we are convinced that everything that exists must have a cause; those who are of a different opinion are free to leave aside this order of considerations. »
(René Guénon, Orient et Occident, (1924), Chap. II, pp. 45.)

Revolution and superior legitimacy

« The "virus" of the currents ["protesters"] in question is a violent reaction against the negative aspects of the current world; but what is even more characteristic is that they are only instinctive, disordered and anarchic manifestations, which are not justified in any way by indicating what is being denied and contested. Even if it were not obvious that it obeys Marxist or communist influences, the "existential" background of this young protestor would still be suspect. One of its leaders, Cohn-Bendit, said that what he is fighting for is the advent of a "new man": but we have forgotten to say what this "new man" is, and if he ever has to be modelled on the vast majority of current protesters in their individuality, behaviour and elective choices, all we have to say is: no thanks, we will go on.
The links of the protest movement with the so-called sexual revolution in its most disturbing and hybrid aspects, the connivance with "little leaders", drug addicts and other individuals of the same kind, are significant, as is the spectacle offered by certain sectors in which a "repressive" system is increasingly being replaced by the "permissive" system.
What about this new space, this new freedom? There are more and more symptoms that show that the whole "revolt" is conditioned from below, unlike this revolt, which is aristocratic in nature, and which could still characterize some individuals of the previous generation, starting with Nietzsche, by the best Nietzsche. It is precisely some of Nietzsche's sentences (author who is never mentioned by the current protesters, who have fallen in love with Marcuse and company, because they instinctively feel that his revolt, much broader, is of a different, aristocratic nature) that should be quoted here.

Zarathustra says: "You say you are free? I want to know your master thought, but not to know that you have escaped a yoke. Are you someone who had the right to escape from a yoke? Some people lose their last value by rejecting their subjection. Free of what? What does it matter in Zarathustra? But your clear eye must tell me: free for what?" And Zarathoustra warns that the loner who has no law above him, who has only his formless freedom, runs to his death.
When we want to determine the origin of the driving force and the "psychodynamics" of the protest movement, we see that it is well located in this dark zone of the human being at the sub-personal and infra-intellectual, elementary bottom, on which psychoanalysis has focused attention; they are regressive and explosive manifestations of these layers, similar to the many cracks in a world in crisis. Recognizing the questionable and despicable aspects of this world does not change that. When a revolutionary movement lacks authentic restorative values and is not carried by a human type representing a higher legitimacy, we must expect to pass an even more critical and destructive stage than the one from which we started. »
(Julius Evola, Phénoménologie de la subversion (1984), part. III, Chap. II - Psychologie de la "contestation")

" Il est dit dans la Bhagavad-Gîtâ : « Sur Moi toutes choses (1) sont enfilées comme un rang de perles sur un fil (2). » Il s’agit ici du symbolisme du sûtrâtmâ, dont nous avons déjà parlé en d’autres occasions : c’est Âtmâ qui, comme un fil (sûtra), pénètre et relie entre eux tous les mondes, en même temps qu’il est aussi le « souffle » qui, suivant d’autres textes, les soutient et les fait subsister, et sans lequel ils ne pourraient avoir aucune réalité ni exister en aucune façon. Nous parlons ici des mondes en nous plaçant au point de vue macrocosmique, mais il doit être bien entendu qu’on pourrait tout aussi bien envisager de même, au point de vue microcosmique, les états de manifestation d’un être, et que le symbolisme serait exactement le même dans l’une et l’autre de ces deux applications.

Chaque monde, ou chaque état d’existence, peut être représenté par une sphère que le fil traverse diamétralement,
de façon à constituer l’axe qui joint les deux pôles de cette sphère ; on voit ainsi que l’axe de ce monde n’est à proprement parler qu’une portion de l’axe même de la manifestation universelle tout entière, et c’est par là qu’est établie la continuité effective de tous les états qui sont inclus dans cette manifestation. Avant d’aller plus loin dans l’examen de ce symbolisme, nous devons dissiper tout d’abord une assez fâcheuse confusion au sujet de ce qui, dans une telle représentation, doit être considéré comme le « haut » et le « bas » : dans le domaine des apparences « physiques », si l’on part d’un point quelconque de la surface d’une sphère, le bas y est toujours la direction allant vers le centre de cette sphère ; mais on a remarqué que cette direction ne s’arrête pas au centre, qu’elle se continue de là vers le point opposé de la surface, puis au-delà de la sphère elle-même, et on a cru pouvoir dire que la descente devait se poursuivre de même, d’où on a voulu conclure qu’il n’y aurait pas seulement une « descente vers la matière », c’est-à-dire, en ce qui concerne notre monde, vers ce qu’il y a de plus grossier dans l’ordre corporel, mais aussi une « descente vers l’esprit (3) », si bien que, s’il fallait admettre une telle conception, l’esprit aurait lui-même un aspect « maléfique ». En réalité, les choses doivent être envisagées d’une tout autre façon : c’est le centre qui, dans une telle figuration, est le point le plus bas (4), et, au-delà de celui-ci, on ne peut que remonter, comme Dante remonta de l’Enfer en continuant à suivre la même direction suivant laquelle sa descente s’était effectuée tout d’abord, ou du moins ce qui paraît géométriquement être la même direction (5), puisque la montagne du Paradis terrestre est située, dans son symbolisme spatial, aux antipodes de Jérusalem (6). Du reste, il suffit de réfléchir un instant pour se rendre compte qu’autrement la représentation ne saurait être cohérente, car elle ne s’accorderait nullement avec le symbolisme de la pesanteur, dont la considération est particulièrement importante ici, et, en outre, comment ce qui est le bas pour un point de la sphère pourrait-il être en même temps le haut pour le point diamétralement opposé à celui-là, et comment les choses se seraient-elles présentées si l’on était au contraire parti de ce dernier point (7) ? Ce qui est vrai seulement, c’est que le point d’arrêt de la descente ne se situe pas dans l’ordre corporel, car il y a très réellement de l’« infra-corporel » dans les prolongements de notre monde ; mais cet « infra-corporel », c’est le domaine psychique inférieur, qui non seulement ne saurait être assimilé à quoi que ce soit de spirituel, mais qui est même précisément ce qu’il y a de plus éloigné de toute spiritualité, à tel point qu’il paraîtrait en quelque sorte en être le contraire à tous les égards, si toutefois il était permis de dire que l’esprit a un contraire ; la confusion que nous venons de signaler n’est donc pas autre chose, en définitive, qu’un cas particulier de la confusion trop répandue du psychique et du spirituel (8)."

        "the publication —largely fictionalized but based on some firsthand oral accounts— portrayed Frankism as a Jesuit plot and compared Frank to Ignatius Loyola. Brinken gave an account of Frank’s biography and followed the development of the sect until his own times.
        The last chapter described secret Frankist conventicles in Prussian-occupied Warsaw. Only the first three chapters appeared, and the publication was halted after the intervention of Maria Szymanowska née Wołowska, who was a renowned pianist and tutor to Alexander’s I daughter, a friend of Goethe, the mother of Mickiewicz’s wife, Celina, and a member of the powerful Shorr Wołowski clan, which had played such an important role in the development of Frankism."

      • The first part of the excerpts announces the disappearance of the Jewish people and the end of the messianic times; then Kraushaar specifies p. 204 of vol. 2 that chapter XVI of the Book of Prophecies announces the French Revolution, the beheading of its King, and the wars of European countries against revolutionary France; then the wars between the German empires, Austro-Hungarian, Turkish and human losses as never before seen, which remind us of the First World War;

      • Report by René Guénon published in Études Traditionnelles 1939: "Dans la Revue Juive de Genève (n° de décembre), M. Paul Vulliaud consacre un article au Mysticisme juif ; comme il le dit, on a souvent contesté qu’il existe quelque chose à quoi puisse s’appliquer une telle désignation, et, en fait, cela dépend de ce qu’on entend par « mysticisme » ; il nous semble que lui-même prend ce mot dans un sens plutôt large et insuffisamment défini ; peut-être pourrait-on admettre qu’il convient dans une certaine mesure au Hassidisme, mais, en tout cas, la Kabbale est sûrement d’un tout autre ordre, ésotérique et initiatique."

XVI) ; ils contiennent des choses vraiment nouvelles ou tout au moins fort peu connues, et, en particulier, on trouvera dans le dernier de nombreux renseignements sur le côté social et même politique qui contribue pour une bonne part à donner à la tradition kabbalistique son caractère nettement et proprement judaïque."

        • This curious book, which had not been mentioned by any specialist in Francoism, is an autobiography (largely false in our opinion, apart from some civil status information that we have verified) of an alleged descendant of Jacob Frank, a French naturalized man born in 1911. It is written for the very general public, in a simplistic language. However, it has significant Frankish features, which are somewhat reminiscent of Junius Frey's revolutionary writing style and adventurous life, suggesting that it is not at all the work of a wacky man. In our opinion, its undeclared objective is to work with public opinion to begin rehabilitating Jacob Frank's descendants. It should be recalled that throughout the 20th century, less than 10 books (and only specialized essays) mentioning the existence of Frankism were published in French.

      On the means used by Christianophobia

      You can then consult, from this point of view of the history of religions, the books and articles listed in the reference [vii B] of this other article of 2014, and whose related facts must be measured against the influence of Frankism - Sabbateanism. These books cover the relationship between secret societies, haute finance and the history of the West and the Middle East, and detail the different facets of the means of the present christianophobia.


      "There is certainly much truth in what is exposed in it about two "Internationals" [organisations], one revolutionary and the other financial, which are probably much less opposed than the superficial observer might really believe; but is all this, which is part of a much larger whole, really under the direction of the Jews (one should rather say of some Jews), or is it not actually used by "something" that exceeds them? Moreover, we think there would be a very curious study to make of the reasons why the Jew, when he is unfaithful to his tradition, becomes more easily than another the instrument of the "influences" that govern the modern deviation; this would be, in a way, the other side of the "mission of the Jews", and this could perhaps lead quite far…"
      (René Guénon, Études sur la Franc-Maçonnerie et le Compagnonnage, tome 1, éd. Éditions Traditionnelles, (1971), pp. 111)

      "3 Know that in the last days there will be difficult times, for men will be selfish, friends of money, braggers, proud, blasphemers, rebels against their parents, ungrateful, ungodly, insensitive, implacable, slanderous, violent, cruel, enemies of good, traitors, carried away, blinded by pride, friends of pleasure rather than God. They will have the appearance of piety but will deny what makes it strong. Get away from these people. Some of them break into houses and take in their nets gullible women, full of sin, carried away by all kinds of desires, who are always learning but can never come to the knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men oppose the truth. They have perverted intelligence and are disqualified with regard to faith. But they will not go any further, for their madness will be obvious to all, as was that of these two men.[...]
      Moreover, all those who wish to live piety in Jesus Christ will be persecuted, while wicked and deceitful men will advance ever further into evil by misleading others and misleading themselves. As for you, stand firm in what you have learned and recognized as certain, knowing from whom you have learned it.

      4 [That's because] I beg you, before God and before [the Lord] Jesus Christ who must judge the living and the dead at the time of his coming and his kingdom: preach the word, insist on it at all times, whether favourable or not, refute, rebuke and encourage. Do all this with full patience and a full concern for education. Indeed, a time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine. On the contrary, having the itch to hear pleasant things, they will give themselves a host of teachers according to their own desires.
      They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn to fables.
      But you, be sober in everything, bear the sufferings, accomplish the task of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry well."
      (Deuxième épître de Saint Paul Apôtre à Timothée, 3:1-9, 3:12-14 et 4:1-5)
