From the Inside Flap:

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.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 232 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Add one part heresy, one part detective story, and one part archaeology, and you get The Book of Hiram. Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas have concluded their 14 year quest for the historial Jesus, the roots of Christianity, and the origins of the Freemasons with this explosive new book. In The Hiram Key, The Second Messiah, and Uriel s Machine, Robert Lomas and Christopher Knight set out to discover the mysterious origins of the Freemasons. What resulted was a fascinating mixture of archeological surprises, pre-historic science, conspiracies, and heretical Christology. Among their discoveries were: / Freemasonry is in the possession of ancient esoteric secrets that go back to the time of King Solomon. / Jesus was in possession of that knowledge. / The Knights Templar rediscovered those secrets in their excavations of the Temple in Jerusalem during the Crusades. / The ancient scrolls taken from Jerusalem by the Knights Templar are most likely buried on the premises of Rosslyn Castle. / There were two universal floods (one of them described in Genesis). Pre-historic man developed a technology to predict those floods (e.g. Stonehenge). The Book of Hiram both recapitulates their findings that appear in their previous books, expands on them, and presents new research that further bolsters their thesis that Freemasonry possesses ancient, albeit somewhat garbled and misunderstood wisdom. The second half of the book is The Masonic Testament. Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive chronological collection of the rites of the Freemasons. Those rites -- -combined with the authors commentary -- -represent a document analogous to the Old and New Testaments. It is a document that adds to our knowledge of ancient Judaism, as well as adding a strand of esoteric knowledge that appears nowhere else. Bookseller Inventory # NLF9780007200887
