Illuminism is identified with a group of Bavarian enthusiasts, known as the Illuminati (Perfectibilists or Perfektibilisten ). Their main objective was to establish and propagate a new religion, and politically to establish a universal democratic republic that would follow the overthrow of existing government. The foundation of both was enlightened reason, i.e., reason liberated from the dominating authority of Church and State. The group was founded by Adam Weishaupt on May 1, 1776. Weishaupt had been educated by the Jesuits, and became the first lay professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt.
