View Full Version : Who is father of understanding?

There is one mission about templars and Baphomet, but ofcourse it does not prove anything. Are there any official statements about who is father of understanding? Ofcourse I hope that's not Baphomet for real because I would totally lose respect for Assassin's Creed and that would be very stupid move Ubisoft.

It is an unknown entity worshipped by the Templars but not Baphomet

To be honest i have never thought of it, but i think its a quote for Templers and doesn't point to anyone or specific entity, its like may you find the wisdom and guidance but definitely not Baphomet

I always thought it's the templar's god.
But could very well be Baphomet, from wikipedia:
Arkon Daraul proposed that "Baphomet" may derive from the Arabic (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_language) word أبو فهمة Abu fihama(t), meaning "The Father of Understanding".[37] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baphomet#cite_note-37) "Arkon Daraul" is widely thought to be a pseudonym of Idries Shah (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idries_Shah) (19241996).

No not Baphomet... Although we hear of Baphomet... the father of understanding is mentioned separately... II'm not even sure it is a person it might be something like Knowledge or necessity is the father of understanding... it may well be a 1st CIV that Juno serves...

It is a very interesting point and one that will keep us guessing for a long time. :)

I assumed it pretty much just was God.. As in the templars - as the real templars, would worship God. Whereas the Assassins were more into the reality of things. Sort of like the Illuminati - fighting for not religion but for truth and knowledge/science.
