Welcome to this website that tells the amazing story about Sir Francis Bacon, Shakespeare and Hermes Stella, and many other veiled mysteries.

Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Baron Verulam of Verulam, Viscount St Alban, the celebrated English Renaissance philosopher, author, poet, orator, scientist, jurist, politician, statesman and Lord Chancellor (1618-21), gave us an initiatic method by which a Golden Age on Earth might be achieved.

The method is above all imaginative, poetic and artistic as well as scientific, the aim being to create a living work of art just as Nature and the Universe is a work of art. It is also a treasure hunt, or game of hide and seek.
