MASONIC BIOGRAPHIES
FAMOUS FREEMASONS
Dom Antoine-Joseph Pernety
[Dom Antoine Pernety]
1716 - 1796
Author of Dictionnaire Mytho-Hermétique (1758) and Rituel alchimique secret du grade de vari maçon (1770), Dom Pernety also created the Swedenborgian Rite while he was librarian to Frederick the Great. Here he met a Polish Count, Thaddeus Leszczy Grabianka (1740 - 1807) and in 1786 they founded the Societé des Illuminés d'Avignon.
"Dom Antoine-Joseph Pernety is not to be confused with his cousin Dom Jacques Pernety, the illustrious alchemist and cabbalist who was a freemason and a member of the Loius d'Argent Lodge of Paris. Nobody knows if Dom Antoine Pernety was ever a freemason."
