by Galbix Red and Gabriel López de RojasThe creator of the Egyptian Freemasonry of Egyptian Rite was the Count Alexander of Cagliostro (1749-1796), born in Tunisi. He must not be identified with the mystifierGiuseppe Balsamo (1743-1795), the palermitano recruited by the Jesuits to personify and tothrow the disrepute on the true Count of Cagliostro.Alexander of Cagliostro was initiated to the secrets of the Egyptian Freemasonry by themysterious Master Altothas in 1776, year of the foundation of the Order of the Illuminated.And few know that the summit of the Order of the Illuminated was constituted by sixmembers: four were known (Weishaupt, von Knigge, Goethe, Herder) and two were secrets(Franklin and Cagliostro).In effects a secret connection existed between the Order of the Illuminated of Weishauptand the Egyptian Freemasonry of Cagliostro that was officially founded in 1785, year of thesuppression of the Order of the Illuminated. Besides, Napoleone Bonaparte was initiated byCagliostro to the Egyptian Freemasonry and the Masonic Rites of Memphis, of Misraïm andof Memphis-Misraïm comes down from it.Between 1810 and 1813, in Naples (Italy), the three brothers Bédarride (Michel, Marc andJoseph) received the Supreme Powers from the Order of Misraïm and they developed theRite of Misraïm in France. They made it official in Paris in 1814. The Rite was composed of 90 degrees, taken from the Scottish freemasonry, from Martinism and from other Masoniccurrents, and the last four degrees received the name of “Arcana Arcanorum”.
In 1815, in Montauban (France), the Mother Lodge of the Rite of Memphis was constitutedwith the Grand Master Samuel Honis as head, whom followed, in 1816, Gabriel-MathieuMarconis. In 1838, Jean Etienne Marconis de Nègre, son of this last one, took over the Riteof Memphis. The Rite, for J. E. Marconis de Nègre, was a continuation of the ancientMysteries practised in the Antiquity, in India and in Egypt. The Constitutions of the Ritesaid: “... the masonic rite of Memphis is the continuation of the Mysteries of the Antiquity.The Rite taught the first men to pay homage to the divinity...”. The Rite of Memphisreached the 92 and 95 degrees.In 1881, the Italian general Giuseppe Garibaldi reunified the Rites of Memphis and Misraïmand became the Grand Hierophante of both. After the death of Garibaldi, in 1882, the Ritesentered in a “dark” period up to when, in 1890, various lodges of both Rites were federatedand the Rite of Memphis-Misraïm appeared. In 1900, the Italian Ferdinando Francesco degliOddi became Head of the Memphis-Misraïm and was replaced, by the English John Yarker,in 1902. The Rite reached the 97 degrees.In 1902, the German Theodor Reuss established the Sovereign Sanctuary of Memphis-Misraïm in Germany and in 1913, after the death of Yarker, he became the InternationalHead of the Rite. In 1924, T. Reuss passed to the Eternal East and the succession wasinterrupted, except in the O.T.O. (Ordo Templi Orientis), the neotemplar order founded byReuss, in 1905, in Germany. In reality, the O.T.O. had included the Rite of Memphis-Misraïm, although in a reduced version, where its principals degrees were incorporated.In 1909, Theodor Reuss delivered a licence to the famous martinist Gerard Encauss (Papus).The successors of Papus were Charles Detré (Tedé), Jean Bricaud, Constant Chevillon,Charles-Henry Dupont and Robert Ambelain. In 1939, Jean Bricaud passed to the EternalEast and was followed by Chevillon. In 1944, Chevillon was murdered by the Frenchcollaborationists of nazional-socialism and was followed by Dupont. And, in 1960,Ambelain succeeded Dupont.On November 14, 1973, the Italian Francesco Brunelli (1927-1982) was named by RobertAmbelain responsible for the Rite in Italy. On November 22, 1973, Francesco Brunelli(Nebo) – Grand Master of the Martinist Ancient and Traditional Order and of the Ancientand Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm – was received with all honors in the Grand Lodgeof Italy, to Palazzo Giustiniani. But the activity of the Rite in Italy and in the Grand Lodgeof Italy was anedoctal in the seventies.In 1981, Francesco Brunelli contacted the known Italian initiate Frank G. Ripel torestructure the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm and the situation of the Ritewas the following: 99º or International Head of the Egyptian Oriental Order of the Ancientand Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm, 98º or Incognito Superior (from the degree VIIº tothe XIIIº of the Order of the Rosa Mistica), 97º or Substitute of the International Head, 96ºor National Head, 1º-95º (from the Iº to the VIº of the Order of the Rosa Mistica). In therenewed Egyptian Oriental Order of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm of which we are about to talk, from 1º to 95º, the 6 Alchemical Operations are found andassociated to the degrees 1°-3º, 4º-33º, 34º-42º, 43º-63º, 64º-74º and 75º-95º.
Frank G. Ripel was at the head of the Egyptian Oriental Order of the Ancient and PrimitiveRite of Memphis-Misraïm between 1981 and 1999, when he put it in “sleep”.At the end of March 2003, Frank G. Ripel, being Grand Master of the O.C.I. (Order of theEnlightened Knights) had a contact with the Spanish Gabriel López de Rojas, founder andGrand Master of the Order of the Illuminated, O.H.O. of the O.T.O. (Ordo TempliOrientalis) Society, 33º degree of the Ancient and Approved Scottish Rite, maximum degreeof a pair of Egyptian Rites. When Gabriel López de Rojas learned that the Egyptian OrientalOrder of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm of Frank G. Ripel was in“sleep”, proposed to Ripel “to wake it up again” and he accepted, making it to revive, onMay 1, 2003, with the name of Egyptian Freemasonry of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm.
