The long forgotten early rituals of Freemasonry uncover a parallel story to the Bible -- events the Bible doesn?t mention. Readers learn about a secret theology based on the ancient science of astronomy -- once the exclusive property of kings and high priests. Here the collection of ancient Masonic texts has been distilled into a complete narrative which the authors call: The Masonic Testament. In it, they describe the unexpected foundation of Masonic philosophy.
Setting out on a quest to discover the prehistoric science behind the Masonic rituals, the authors embark on a journey which spans five thousand years and four continents. Ultimately they uncover a stone age cult of Venus worship, passed down to Solomon and later Jewish kings. Working with the latest findings of archaeology and new biblical evidence, they reveal how the Venus cult survived astonishingly to be embraced by the last, would-be king of the Jews -- Jesus Christ himself.
The Book of Hiram answers vital questions about Freemasonry's beginnings -- presenting an exciting challenge to readers to reconsider many of their preconceived notions. In this, the final stage of their fourteen year quest to find the origins of Masonic ritual, Knight and Lomas, who wrote The Hiram Key, follow many strange byways of astrology, ritualistic sex, and child sacrifice before finally reaching the real science that is the basis of Freemasonry. The whole surprising and shocking story is told in The Book of Hiram.
