The Sacred Towers of the Axis Mundi explores the development of the cultural value of specific points on the earth. Often these places would be used as a prime meridian or datum from which to map. Over the years this activity has taken on many practical and spiritual overtones. Join me in this examination of history that may expose some surprising facts. New revelations explored in this book include: Constantine the Great may have built what we know refer to as the Dome of the Rock. Alternately he may have constructed a previous octagonal structure and was once buried beneath it. The mystery of Charlemagne likely was a copy of a similar one left by Constantine. This is why Aachen Cathedral is a copy of the Dome of the Rock. Explorer's James Bruce and the d'Abbadie brothers of Hendaye may have been looking for claim markers that defined the Nile Basin. This region may have been claimed by the Ptolemaic Greek rulers of Egypt. Each of these men brought back original ancient copies of many Ethiopian texts related to Judaism, Christianity, and Masonry. Constantine's tradition of the octagonal axis was known of and repeated by other such as Justinian I and II; Frederick II Holy Roman Emperor; Charles and Rene' Anjou; Charlemagne; The Great Cathedral builders; Dr. John Dee; Queen Elizabeth I; The Newport Tower; Alexander Spotswood; Thomas Jefferson; Alexander Von Humboldt and more.
