Stacie gives a brief biography of Johann Adam Weishaupt, whose search for perfection led to the creation of the Illuminati. She then dives into key symbols and rites, plus the big shake-up that ultimately resulted in the disbanding of the secret society. (Because everyone knows the Illuminati no longer exists. Right?) Rachel illuminates the puppet strings Weishaupt pulled in order to carry out the French Revolution.
