When searching for more information on Bakunin's freemasonry and connection to things like the Illuminati, I mainly get anti-Illuminati conspiracy theory  garbage. There are many correlations between Bakunin's use of secret societies as a base of operations for anarchists, much as secret societies were used by heretics, perhaps even being one and the same. However, sourcing never seems to point out anything I can use to get a better background of Bakunin or of contemporaries that also participated with him in this direction.

You're reaching. Bakunin was a Freemason and used that outfit's semi-secret organizational form. He was a fanatical atheist, not any kind of mystic. Read "God and the State"
