Knights Templar of Bath

The Knights Templar have a base in the centre of Bath. It’s at St. John’s Hospital. This is not documented or advertised anywhere, but is hidden in plain view if you want to find it. There is a public footpath running through the middle of St John’s, barely used or even known about, and the chapel is open for all to see.

This is a long post, sorry, it seemed important to get everything in as it’s all so interconnected.

The disguise…
St. John’s Hospital is not a hospital, and never has been. The declared purpose of its existence is a charity, almshouses for the poor and needy with 24 hour domicilary care. That must be why they need 60 staff. Though the residents don’t seem that needy or that poor, and have to pay rent, same as any other “home”. St John’s also donate money to fund various schemes, which could be categorised as “social services”, social control projects. The money is peanuts compared to their income from property.

History…
St John’s was founded in 1174 by the Catholic Bishop of Bath, Reginald Fitz Jocelin de Bohun. 1174 is carved into the entrance stone. This is not long after the time the Knights Templar came to England. It was set up as a sort of monastery. St. John’s mysteriously not only survived the dissolution of the monasteries, but thrived.

The Hot Springs…
It’s right next to the Cross Bath, which was recently redesigned as a Vesica Pisces shape, with the overlap forming an eye containing a glass eyeball structure where the sacred hot water rises up to feed the bath. An old drawing shows a leper being treated at St John’s, part of the healing the poor scenario. Coincidentally, the Knights Templar were struggling with leprosy in their ranks around the 12th century, and the Hot Springs of Bath are known to cure leprosy. It seems the Knights set up here right on top of the healing waters. I would do the same if I could.

The Seal…
The St John’s symbol has the Vesica Pisces overlap, the vulva in red. This is the seal of the House of St John the Baptist at Bath. This corresponds neatly to the eye of the Vesica Pisces within the neighbouring Cross Bath. The Vesica Pisces also appears at the Chalice Well in Glastonbury. All these things are symbolising the flow of water, the flow of water through the vulva heralding birth.

The Master…
From the Roman King’s Bath in Stall St, the World Heritage symbol inlaid in the ground seems to point the way down the grand Colonnades towards the Cross Bath and St John’s. The straight line carries on within the Courtyard of St John’s, clipping the front of the “Master’s Lodge”. This is engraved in the stone, and recently so. The door is always shut and looks inhospitable. The Master is a phrase that instantly transports us to the world of Freemasons and Knights. Not hospitals.

Agnus Dei…
The Agnus Dei, the Holy Lamb of God is prominently carved in stone just to the left of the Master’s Lodge. The Knights Templar cross is behind the lambs and the date 1969 is inscribed. This is no hangover from bygone days, it was carved in 1969. The Agnus Dei is a clear symbol of the Knights Templar. This symbol is repeated in the Chapel at the altar. It is quite clear what the theme of worship is.

Temple Mount…
The Knights Templar were formed after the capture of Jerusalem in 1099 at Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The Dome of The Rock on Temple Mount is an octagonal building with a gold dome on top, a place of worship. The chapel in St Johns has a seemingly out of place octagonal tower on its roof, with a gold orb and cross on top of it. Not easily spotted from the narrow streets below unless you are looking for it. It’s a mini Dome of The Rock. Within the chapel, a locked miniature door leads to a circular space directly below the octagon tower, perhaps a miniature spiral stair, or a solitary chamber.

Knights of St John Hospitaller…
…or Knights Hospitaller of St John of Jerusalem in England. Or the Order of the Knights of St Johns etc etc. There are several variations on the name to confuse the trail. These guys are very closely related to the Knights Templar, and probably are the Knights Templar with a name change, following their persecution. So now you can see where we get the name St Johns Hospital from, it’s from the Knights. Templar lands and assets were given to the Order of the Hospital of St John at one point. There seems to have been a transference from Templars to St John Hospitaller. The Templars first came to England in 1118, so it seems the shift took place around the 12th century. Though some sources say they were not formed until 1119! But you get the general idea anyway.

The Pope…
The Grand Master of The Knights of St John of Jerusalem answers only to the Pope. We assume that this is the white pope in the Vatican, but it may well be the Black Pope, the hidden one. The current Grand Master is Matthew Festing, the second Englishman ever. The Vatican has a copy of the letter sent by Pope Boniface IX in 1400 to St. John’s giving permission for burial of parishioners in chapel and cemetery. This demonstrates the hierarchical control from the Vatican at that time, and it’s apparently still ongoing.

Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM)…
SMOMS, Templars and St Johns Hospitaller are all the same by different names. Check out some of the links below. They are either branches of the same thing, or name changes to disguise. Corporates today play the same trick, giving us a friendly local small organisation to relate to, that does good deeds. Meanwhile something much bigger and more dangerous lurks behind the scenes. If they get exposed, they just pretend to go under and come back with a new name.

The Priory connection…
St John’s Hospital was at one point under control of Bath Cathedral Priory, formerly the Abbey. A priory signifies the combination of abbots and bishops in the same place, as happened in Bath from 1088 until around the end of the 12th century. This temporary change in religious hierarchy at the centre of Bath seems to have given us another name for the same team! The Priors of St John in Jerusalem. So now we have Priors as well as Knights. According to Wikipedia, “priory” is also used to refer to the geographic HQ of several commanderies of Knights. The symbol for these Priors of St John etc is the Templar cross, white on black.

The Grand Prior…
….of England of the Knights Hospitaller etc is Ian Scott of Ardross, Scotland. He is the 57th Prior, and was installed on 13th October 2011. By coincidence, Obama was recently sworn in for the 57th U.S. presidency. And his rituals were on St Agnes Eve and St Agnes Day. That’s the holy lamb again, as worshipped at St John’s. It’s all linked.

John Wood…
The ecclesiastical seat of the Priory of St John’s etc is St John’s Wood, London. John Wood the Elder built Georgian Bath. And his very first building was the rebuilding of St John’s. He was a Freemason and Druid. Elder does not mean he was the eldest, though we are tricked to think this by the mention of a John Wood the Younger. An Elder Druid is the most senior Druid in a Grove. One of the St John’s Hospital buildings is named after him as if to emphasise the connection. Paul McCartney comes in at this point! He has a house in St John’s Wood, and a recent spate of tree disease brought his other Johns Wood property to public attention on April Fools Day, 2012. Within his private woodland lies a memorial woodland to Linda. The couple bought the 100 acre St John’s Wood in 1990. Paul McCartney is one of the elites’ favourite messengers of hidden clues. Pay attention! Three John Woods, a person, a place and a woodland. John Wood is a big clue.

Priory of Sion…
In 1099, the Priory of Sion was set up by Godfrey, first King of Jerusalem, when Jerusalem was captured. This sounds familiar! Same sort of date and place as the Knights Templar. The symbol of the Priory of Sion is the Fleur de lis. The Fleur de lis symbol appears in several prominent places in the St John’s chapel. It seems the Priory of Sion may be same old bunch of Knights with a different name. The mission of the Priory of Sion is to protect the bloodline of Jesus.

More Scottish connections…
The Lord of St Johns etc is Lord Torphichen, of Torpichen. He seems to be next in command to the Grand Prior. It’s a hereditary job for the Sandilands family, male members, currently on the 15th Lord, and begun in 1564. It has an automatic seat in parliament. That’s the Knights Templar, answerable to the Pope, in the UK parliament. Torphichen is in Scotland, it’s the Scottish HQ of the Knights of St John Hospitaller, and has been since 1160, just before the Bath branch was founded. Torphichen is only 2.8 miles from Bathgate, and about 20 miles from Edinburgh, that other Georgian Royal city, which modelled its Georgian street design on Bath. Bath.gate? Why is there a gate to Bath in Scotland so close to Edinburgh? It all seems very interlinked. Especially as the elites hang out in Scotland a lot. I also notice that Agnus (the lamb) is similar to the Scottish name of Angus.

The Chapel of St Michael Within…
For some reason, the chapel within St John’s Hospital in Bath is dedicated to St Michael, not John. It’s “within” the old city walls. On the wall behind the altar, is a mosaic depicting two archangels, kneeling to the central Agnus Dei, the holy lamb with the Templar cross. The writing is ECCE AGNUS DEI. ECCE means “behold” in the sense to call attention to one unjustly persecuted… the holy lamb of god being unjustly persecuted. Underneath are the words “WORTHY IS THE LAMB THAT WAS SLAIN TO RECEIVE POWER AND RICHES AND WISDOM AND STRENGTH, AND HONOUR, AND GLORY, AND BLESSING”. The word SLAIN was conveniently screened by a gold cross. The sacrificial altar is dedicated to the sacrifice of the lamb and therefore Agnes. Above and left of the altar is a statue of Christ with a tie around his robe dangling in such a way as to look exactly like his dangling male appendage. This seems to symbolically fit with the mission of the Priory of Sion. To the right is a statue of a Knight (St George or St Michael perhaps?) slaying the dragon with his sword. The cloth over the altar has the lamb again, with 24 rays radiating out from her. High up in the side wall is a circular window showing St Michael as a Knight in armour, his sword pointing down from his right hand, and a scales in his left hand. Matthew, Mark, Luke and, of course, John are depicted in 4 smaller circular windows.

The Royals connection…
The Queen is the sovereign for the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John etc, for which she can give out knighthoods etc. These are white cross on black. Prince Charles is connected via his wife, HRH Camilla, who is patron of St John’s in Bath. They live less than an hour away at Highgrove. Charles is also the Grandmaster of the Order of the Bath, which I have not yet worked out, but feel is connected to Bath and its Hot Springs.

The Energy lines…
I can’t be sure without dowsing it, but my energy line map seems to show a concentration of Earth energy crossovers within the chapel. You can certainly feel something pretty strong in the aisle before the altar. It seems quite likely that it would be on the same energy line as Bath Abbey.

St John’s Ambulance…
The symbol for St John’s Ambulance is the white Templar Cross on black. Exactly the same as the black inauguration robes for the Grand Prior. St John’s Ambulance is answerable to the Priory of St John. This seems like another charitable front to give a cover story to the real activities. It allows a build up of staff, centres, vehicles (emergency ones which are allowed to break the rules without question), and movement around the country, and the world, all hidden in plain view.

Numbers and letters…
St John’s was founded 1174, which translates to 11:11 (7+4 = 11).
At a recent exhibition on the residents of St Johns held at Queens Square (where else?), during Agnes week (great timing), the very first portrait is of someone born on 11/11/11, and on his 100th birthday he had been at St John’s 11 years. They must have deliberately moved him in when he was 89!
The postcode of St John’s is BA1 1SQ. It couldn’t be more obvious could it? 1SQ. The one square mile of Jerusalem. Or BA.11SQ which is 11 square, 11 x 11 which is the Monopoly board, and reflects their property game. If you are a number geek like me, you will also have noticed the number combination of 199 cropping up frequently. It’s a sort of inverse of 911. And sometimes 116, which is an inverse.

The female links…
St John’s is closely linked to Mary Magdalene chapel on Holloway, and St Catherine’s almshouses in the city. They seem to be part of the same organisation. Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ lover, possibly carrier of his child, the bloodline protected by the Priory of Sion. The mother of the next Queen is Catherine. St Agnes is the other female link, the dedication of the Knights Templar, see my post on Agnes Day.

Money and property…
The “trustee” of the charity is St Johns Hospital Trustee Ltd, a private company. That means they can do anything, and are not subject to rules governing charities. The “trustees” are people from the world of finance, military, religion and property. In addition to their city centre “almshouses”, St John’s own many prestigious and interesting properties in the centre of Bath which they rent for an income to help their charitable work. They are still acquiring more property. Not only do they own them, their website clearly states how they personally take care of all maintenance and alterations through their own Property department. This control of key Bath properties is obviously part of their role. They have a staff of 60, which seems quite a lot for a humble almshouse operation.

Templars in Somerset…
This is documented in a book, The Knights Templar of Somerset. There are many place names that leave a trail. Temple Meads, Temple Cloud, Cameley and Temple. Bristol is particularly noted for its Templar names. But none in Bath. How strange.

Religious links…
The original medieval deeds of St John’s are held at Lambeth palace. That’s odd. Lambeth Palace is the HQ of the Church of England! Just like Bath Abbey claims to be, whilst its symbology declares its loyalty to the Vatican.

Jewish links…
Rosenberg House is an extension of almshouses built in 1975. Wikipedia says that this name is commonly used by Ashkenazi (Nazi) Jews. In the chapel, there is a prominent plaque to the Revd C.W. Shiekle, Master 1899 – 1927. No other masters seem to have this level of dedication. The name is very like shekel, which is the Israeli currency.

Knights of Bath estate agents…
The first clue I ever had to Knights being in Bath, was the Estate agents called Knights of Bath. It started the trail. They are the shop window version of the hidden knights. And they control property in Bath, that’s what Estate Agents are for. Their website says “Our staff all come from families who have lived in and around the city for generations”. Bath ancestral families, perhaps?

The parallel ruling hierarchy…
The people that really run the world are operating in a hidden carefully controlled hierarchy across the globe, with endless rituals. The “democratic” hierarchy that we think we elect is a stage front, a shop window for us to look at, be distracted by, and believe in. It has no real power whatsoever. The parallel hierarchy, the hidden hand across the world is huge and this post describes a small part of it which is local to me in Bath, U.K.
