Umberto Eco was born in Alessandria, Italy on January 5, 1932. He received a doctorate of philosophy from the University of Turin in 1954. His first book, Il Problema Estetico in San Tommaso, was an extension of his doctoral thesis on St. Thomas Aquinas and was published in 1956. His first novel, The Name of the Rose, was published in 1980 and won the Premio Strega and the Premio Anghiar awards in 1981. His other works include Foucault's Pendulum, The Island of the Day Before, and The Prague Cementary.

William Weaver was born on July 24, 1923. During World War II, he joined the American Field Service and was sent to Africa and then to Italy as an ambulance driver. As a senior at Princeton University, he had a short story published in Harper's Bazaar. After graduation, he taught at the University of Virginia for a year before returning to Italy. He was a translator of modern Italian literature into English. He translated the works of numerous authors including Italo Calvino, Umberto Eco, Giorgio Bassani and Primo Levi. He also studied opera and wrote several books on the subject including The Golden Century of Italian Opera from Rossini to Puccini. He taught at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York in the 1990s. He died on November 12, 2013 at the age of 90.

When the light of the infinite
Wee haue divers curious Clocks
In hanc utilitatem clementes angeli
He who attempts to penetrate into the Rose Garden
And begin by combining this name
Juda Leon se dio a permutaciones
Do not expect too much of the end of the world
Having come from the light and from the gods
In his right hand he held a golden trumpet
And finally nothing is cabalistically inferred
His sterility was infinite
Sub umbra alarum tuarum
Li frere, li mestre du Temple
He, if asked, would also confess to killing Our Lord
I will go and fetch you help from the Comte D'Anjou
He had been in the order only nine months
And thus did the knights of the Temple vanish
A mass terrifyingly riddled with fissures and caverns
The order has never ceased to exist, not for a moment
Invisible center, the sovereign who must reawaken
The Graal ... is a weight so heavy
The knights wanted to face no further questions
The analogy of opposites
Sauvez la faible Aischa
These mysterious initiates
All the traditions of the earth
One day, saying that he had known Pontius Pilate
There is a body that enfolds the whole of the world
Simply because they change and hide their names
And the famous confraternity of the Rosy Cross
The majority were in reality only Rosicrucians
Valentiniani per ambiguitates bilingues
The visions are white, blue, white, pale red
Beydelus, Demeyes, Adulex
I' mi son Lia
Yet one caution let me give
Whoever reflects on four things
Prince of Babylon, Knight of the Black Cross
Doctor of the Planispheres, Hermetic Philosopher
Cowards die many times before their deaths
Daath is situated at the point where the abyss
We are all in agreement, whatever we say
People who meet on the street
Invoke the forces
And from this springs the extraordinary question
You will approach the frog several times
The sense alert and the memory clear
The volume of the Great Pyramid in cubic inches
A spiritual knighthood of initiates
For I am the first and the last
When therefore a Great Cabalist
A colossal chessboard that extends beneath the earth
Unable to control destinies on earth openly
The prince of darkness
I call a theatre
He began playing his shining trumpet
On every third tree a lantern
Alchemy, however, is a chaste prostitute
And if such monsters are generated
Poor idiot!
The Golden Fleece is guarded
We consider societies druidic if
What does the fish remind you of?
To dream of living in an unknown city
The frame was twenty foot square
If our hypothesis is correct
Da Rosa, nada digamos agora
Let your garments be white
Elles deviennent le Diable
Let us remember the secret references
We do not even know with certainty
Nos inuisibles pretendus
Another curious case
Though his will be good
The initiates are at the edge of that path
This herb is called Devilbane
Surely this monstrous hybrid
He opened his coffer
When White arrives
They could explode the whole surface of our planet
The earth is a magnetic body
A map is not the territory
Following the plans of Verulam
Phileas Fogg. A name that is also a signature
It was to them that Eiffel turned
It is a remarkable coincidence
Templarism is Jesuitism
In the bosom of the deepest darkness
All the outrages attributed to the Templars
How well you have unmasked those infernal sects
With all the power and terror of Satan
Whereas we stay in the wings
En avoit-il le moindre soupcon?
Namely the Jewish Cabalists
A cover is always necessary
I am that I am
Its racist gnosis, its rites and initiations
Guenonism plus armored divisions
I declare the earth is hollow
Qui operatur in Cabala
A very thick and high wall
Your secret name shall have 36 letters
These texts are not addressed to common mortals
Delirat lingua, labat mens
List No. 5
Dost thou see you black dog?
Are there several Powers at work?
Saint-Germain ... very polished and witty
They mistook the movements and walked backward
C'est une lecon par la suite
Four our Ordinances and Rites
Our cause is a secret
The ideal pendulum
If the eye could see the demons
Je voudrais etre la tour
Madness has an enormous pavilion
The conspiracy theory of society
The garland of the trumpet was set afire
They hold for certain that they are in the light
