Baron de Bassus

Thomas Maria Baron De Bassus was one of the highest ranking members of the Bavarian Illuminati and a close friend of Adam Weishaupt.

His residence was raided in 1787. Excerpts of the Illuminati found at his residence were published by the Bavarian government under the title “Einige Originalschriften des Illuminaten-Orderns.” Their purpose was to discredit the Illuminati, and some of these documents paint a very damning picture of the order.

Knigge cautioned in Philo’s Reply, “Everything published was done so out context and in part presented to the public in a very false light (123).”

More information can be found at the Conspiracy Archive Blog.

A short biography of de Bassus can found on the website of Hotel Albrici, located in his hometown Poschiavo, Switzerland. Poschiavo remembers de Bassus not as a sinister conspirator, but as “a gentlemen with the good manners befitting his experience in the refined society of the German court.”
