The Historical Saint Germain



My wife just reminded me that most of the world knows nothing about Saint Germain so I decided to give a brief explanation. The Enlightened and now Ascended Master Saint Germain is thought to have ascended like Jesus in the year 1684 AD somewhere in Europe and very likely in England where he was born as Francis Bacon, the illegitamate son of Queen Elizabeth I of England and who later served as the Lord Exchecheur of London. He was also known as the Compte De Saint Germain in France and England and as Prince Ragocy of Transylvania. Some people believe that before he became ascended that the legends of Vlad the Impaler of Transylvania who was the historic Count Dracula, and the miracle worker, Prince Ragocy of Transylvania became intertwined into the same legend to become the perverted as the present pulp science fiction story of Count Dracula that we see in movies since Bela Lugosi in the 1930's in the United States.

However, although Prince Ragocy of Transylvania, Francis Bacon of London, and the Compte De Saint Germain of France were likely all the same person no one has proof that I know of. In addition to this the Compte De Saint Germain frequented all the courts of Europe and especially that of Louis the 16th and Queen Marie Antonette of France. He spoke, it is said as if he were there at ancient battles thousands of years before and spoke intimately of knowing people from divergent cultures and spoke almost all languages fluently like a native born to the language and without any accent even dead languages and played like a virtuoso on the violyn. I have one of the books of music found by Manly P. Hall and published by his still existent Philosophical Research Society in Los Angeles? It was/is? at 3910 Los Feliz Boulevard Los Angeles, California in the early 1980's when I purchased it. This music is called "The Music of the Compte De Saint Germain". There is also a painting of the Comte. De Saint Germain by the artist Thomas in the Louvre in France. I would like to quote from "Notes on the music of ST. Germain" from inside the published music folio from the Philosophical research society there is no page number other than the fact that I purchased the 266th of 1000 copies on the previous page. begin quote

"The mysterious Comte de St.-Germain is frequently mentioned by memoir writers of the eighteenth century, usually with the highest expression of wonder and admiration. He travelled in elite circles being the confidant of kings, emperors, princes, statesmen, titled ladies, scientists, scholars, and artists. He was always recognized as an aristocrat and nobleman, lived in the best of style, and enjoyed unlimited credit in the banks of Europe. The actual circumstances of St. -Germain's origins are uncertain, and the details of his personal life are shrouded in the deepest obscurity. Perhaps the most comprehensive statement describing the Comte de St. -Germain is contained in a letter dated April 15, 1758, written by Voltaire to the Emperor Frederick of Prussia. "He is a man who never dies and knows everything."

continued quote: "This mysterious gentleman spoke many languages-- including Oriental dialects without an accent, was a brilliant chemist, and artist of rare talents, a diplomat of distinction, and a competent musician. E.M. Oetinger in his work "Graf ST-Germain, Leipzig, 1846 writes "Just as great and worthy of admiration was the musical genius of the Comte. He played almost all instruments, but above all the violin with such consummate mastery that one believed oneself to be listening to a second Maestro Tartini---his first instruction in music he claimed to have enjoyed about 700 years ago from a Benedictine monk, an abbot of Avellana, by the famous master Guido Arezzo, and as concerns church music, claimed to have been educated five centuries later under Palestrina."

quote continued:"According to Madame Blavatsky he was compared to Paganini by those who had heard both. It was also reported of St. -Germain that he sometimes played behind a screen producing the effect of half a dozen instruments sounding at once." end quote

This introduction to the Comte de Saint Germain's music was compiled by Manly P. Hall and I shared only about 1/4 of it. The music introduction says, "The Favorite Songs from the Opera Called the L'Incostanza Delusa to which is added Six Sonatas for Two Violins with a Bass For the Harpsicord on Violincello."

Happily, I just found my copy of the Comte De Saint Germain published by I. Cooper Oakley in 1912 in Milano by "ARS REGIA" CAsa Editrice Del Dott. G. Sulli-Rao. She also published "Traces of a Hidden Tradition in Masonry and Mediaeval Mysticism" which sold for 5 pounds sterling in England and "Mystical Traditions" also for 5 pounds and in french "Traditions Mystiques" traduction francaise for 4 pounds

It appears Cooper Oakley visited famous public as well as private libraries and collections of descendants of those who knew the Comte De Saint Germain to do factual research for her book.

As a part of the introduction from Annie Besant who was then President of the Theosophical Society begins the quote as follow begin quote from Forward---- The Great Occultist and Brother of the White Lodge, fragments of whose life are herein given was the greatest force behind the intellectual reforming movement which received its death blow in the outbreak of the French Revolution. Phoenix-like, it has re-arisen, and it re-appeared in the 19th century as the Theosophical Society, of which this great Brother is one of the recognized Leaders. Still living in the same body the perennial youth of which astonished the observers of the 18th century, He has fulfilled the prophecy made to Madame D'Adhemar that He would show Himself again a century after His farewell to her, and in the growing spritual movement whcih is seen around us on every side, He will be one of the acknowledged Chiefs. Profoundly interesting, therefore, must be every detail that can be gathered of His eighteenth century life, and much is bathered here. London 1911. Annie Besant President of the Theosophical Society.

Chapter 1 of the same book begins on page 11 at the bottom of the page is a quote from Madame Blavatsky "The Comte De St. Germain was certainly the greatest Oriental Adept Europe has seen during the last centuries. quoted from the Thosophical Glossary, H.P. Blavatsky.

Printed in foldout form is a copy of a letter from the Comte De St. Germain written November 22nd 1735 that is in the British Museum. Since it is in French longhand I find it difficult to read even though I am conversant in French, my friends tell me without an accent.

Beginning on page 12 begin quote "Among the strange mysterious beings, with which the eighteenth century was so richly dowered, no one has commanded more universal coment and attention thatn the mystic who was known by the name of the Comte De Saint Germain. A hero of romance; a charlatan; a swindler and an adventurer; rich and varied were the names that showered freely upon him. Hated by the many, loved and reverenced by the few, time has not yet lifted the veil which screened his true mission from vulgar speculators of the period. Then as now, the occultist was dubbed charlatan by the ignorant; only some men and women here and there realised the power of which he stood possessed. The friend and councilor of kings and princes, an enemy to ministers who were skilled in deception, he brought his great knowledge to help the west, to stave off in some small measure the storm clouds that were gathering so thickly around some nations. Alas! his words of warning fell on deafened ears, and his advice went all unheaded.

Looking back from this distance of time it will be of interest to many students of mysticism to trace the life, so far as it may yet be told, of this great Occultist. Sketches are to be found here and there from various writers, mostly antagonistic, but no coherent detailed account of his life has yet appeared. This is very largely owing to the fact that the most interesting and important work, done by M. De St. Germain, lies buried in the secret archives of many princely and noble families. With this fact we have become acquainted duing the careful investigations which we have been making on the subject. Where the archives are situated we have also learned, but we have not yet in all cases received permission to make the necessary researches.end quote

Later on page 20 we find Cooper-Oakley believing from research that the Comte de Saint Germain is actually Franz-Leopol, Prince Ragoczy, of Transylvania. She later quotes on the bottom of page 20 and 21 from Prince Karl of Hesse Memoires de Mon Temps P. 133 Copenhagen, 1861. Writing of Monsiour de St. Germain: "Some curiosity may be felt as to his history;I will trace it with the utmost truthfulness, according to his own words, adding any necessary explanations. He told me that he was 88 years old when he came here, and that he was the son of the Prince Ragoczy of Transylvania by his first wife, a Tekeli. He was placed when quite young, under the care of the last Duc de Medici (Gian Gastone), who made him sleep while still a child in his own room. When M. de St. Germain learned that his two brothers, sons of the Princess of Hesse-Wahnfried(Rheifels) had become subject to the Emperor Charles VI., and had received the titles and names of St. Karl and St. Elizabeth, he said to himself:'Very well, I will call myself Santus Germano, the Holy Brother.' I cannot in truth guarantee his birth, but that he was tremendously protected by the Duc de Medici I have learnt from another source." end quote.
Also, I just found two other websites connected to an organization I had affiliation from my birth until age 21(from 1948 until 1969). They are and --- The first is connected to Shasta Springs located in between Dunsmuir and the city of Mt. Shasta in northern California, USA and the second is where you can locate publications mostly channeled by Mr. Ballard between 1930 and 1939 and Mrs. Ballard until the early 1970's.
