Q: I have not followed you for a long time. Some years ago I read your book, The Hallelujah Highway as part of a course I was doing on the early church. It is a wonderful resource. I am just returning to that ministry now after having retired from my regular employment.  

We are now preparing our people for the Second Scrutiny. My research is leading me back to the term ‘ILLUMINATI”, but I can’t remember if that is another name for the Elect or is that what the newly baptized are called?

If you have time to answer this question I would be really grateful. Thanks,


A: Thanks for sharing your memory of my book.

“Illuminati” refers to the newly baptized. “Illuminandi” are those on the way toward baptism.
