J’ai vu l’or en puissance au fond de sa rivièreJ’ai saisi sa matière et surpris son levain.J’expliquai par quel art l’âme aux flancs d’une mèreFait sa maison, l’emporte, et comment un pépinMis contre un grain de blé, sous l’humide poussière;L’un plante et l’autre cep, sont le pain et le vin.Rien n’était, Dieu voulant, rien devint quelque chose,J’en doutais, je cherchai sur quoi l’univers pose.Rien gardait l’équilibre et servait de soutien.Enfin avec le poids de l’éloge et du blâmeJe pesai l’éternel; il appella mon âme:Je mourrai, j’adorai, je ne savais plus rien.—Comte de St.-Germain
HE GREAT ILLUMINIST,Rosicrucian and Freemason who termed himself the Comte de St.-
Germain is without question the most baffling personality of modernhistory. His name was so nearly a synonym of mystery that theenigma of his true identity was as insolvable to his contemporaries asit has been to later investigators. No one questioned the Comte’snoble birth or illustrious estate. His whole personality bore theindelible stamp of gentle breeding.The grace and dignity that characterized his conduct, together withhis perfect composure in every situation, attested the innaterefinement and culture of one accustomed to high station.A London publication makes the following brief analysis of hisancestry: "Did he in his old age tell the truth to his protector andenthusiastic admirer, Prince Charles of Hesse Cassel? According tothe story told by his last friend, he was the son of Prince Rakoczy, ofTransylvania, and his first wife, a Takely. He was placed, when aninfant, under the protection of the last of the Medici (Gian Gastone).When he grew up and heard that his two brothers, sons of thePrincess Hesse Rheinfels, of Rothenburg, had received the names ofSt. Charles and St. Elizabeth, he determined to take the name oftheir holy brother, St. Germanus. What was the truth? One thingalone is certain, that he was the protege of the last Medici." CaesareCantu, librarian at Milan, also substantiates the Ragoczy hypothesis,adding that St.-Germain was educated in the University at Sienna.In her excellent monograph, The Comte de St.-Germain, the Secretof Kings, Mrs. Cooper-Oakley lists the more important names underwhich this amazing person masqueraded between the years 1710and 1822. "During this time," she writes, "we have M. de St.-Germainas the Marquis de Montferrat, Comte Bellamarre or Aymar at Venice,Chevalier Schoening at Pisa, Chevalier Weldon at Milan and Leipzig,Comte Soltikoff at Genoa and Leghorn, Graf Tzarogy at Schwalbackand Triesdorf, Prinz Ragoczy at Dresden, and Comte de St.-Germainat Paris, The Hague, London, and St. Petersburg." To this list it maybe added that there has been a tendency among mystical writers toconnect him with the mysterious Comte de Gabalais who appearedto the Abbe Villiers and delivered several discourses on sub-mundane spirits. Nor is it impossible that he is the same as theremarkable Signor Gualdi whose exploits Hargreave Jenningsrecounts in his book The Rosicrucians, Their Rites and Mysteries. Heis also suspected of being identical with Count Hompesch the last
