9781554077342: The Secret Societies Bible: The Definitive Guide to Mysterious Organizations (Subject Bible)

The definitive guide to those mysterious organizations that operate in secrecy.

The incredible popularity of the Da Vinci Code books and films, and their imitators, has revealed the ongoing fascination with secret societies.

The Secret Societies Bible reveals the hidden facts behind the world's most mysterious organizations. Fully illustrated with rarely published photographs and artworks, the book delves deep into the myth and reality of these societies from around the world, describing each group's origin, initiation rites and other rituals. Author Joel Levy also reveals well-known members of these societies and their influence on finances, politics and world events. A code-breaker checklist of secret signs and symbols is especially interesting to the general reader.

The book covers the world's most important religious, mystical and occult societies, such as:

  • The Knights Templar
  • The Freemasons
  • Rosicrucians
  • Opus Dei
  • The Prioriy of Sion
  • The Gold Dawn
  • The Assassins
  • The Illuminati
  • Propaganda Due
  • Elites of the New World Order
  • The Mafia
  • The Triads

The book also reveals how these organizations have maintained their secrecy in the challenging new world of the Internet, where so many have ready access to global information.

The Secret Societies Bible is a comprehensive and fascinating examination of the history, beliefs and secret rituals of some of the most powerful covert organizations ever. Fans of the occult, magic and mysticism will revel in the breadth and depth of this reference.

About the Author:

Joel Levy is a journalist and author with a special interest in historical mysteries. He has written many books, including Secret History, Lost Histories and Really Useful: The Origins of Everyday Things.

Review:

This is an A-to-Z history lesson describing some of the major secret societies that have existed on our planet for centuries. For any beginning researcher, this book would be a great place to start. If you are interested in the history and origins of groups such as the Freemasons, then this book should be in your library. It is beautifully put together and the colour illustrations and photographs are amazing. Many famous world leaders are shown dressed in their full Masonic gear. Many people of the Roman Catholic faith may be surprised to read about the occult orders within their church, groups such as Opus Dei and The Priory of Sion. The author, Joel Levy, reveals many of the rituals and rites of these secret orders (Kyle Collet Waterloo Region Record 2011-01-22)
