Welcome to this website that tells the amazing story about Sir Francis Bacon, Shakespeare and Hermes Stella, and many other veiled mysteries.

Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Baron Verulam of Verulam, Viscount St Alban, the celebrated English Renaissance philosopher, author, poet, orator, scientist, jurist, politician, statesman and Lord Chancellor (1618-21), gave us an initiatic method by which a Golden Age on Earth might be achieved.

The method is above all imaginative, poetic and artistic as well as scientific, the aim being to create a living work of art just as Nature and the Universe is a work of art. It is also a treasure hunt, or game of hide and seek. For this, striving together in friendship constitutes the "spurs of motions and the keys of works". The ultimate goal is to know and practice well the summary law of the universe – the law of Love – and thereby to know all things whilst having created a Golden Age.
