The secret of the temple : earth energies, sacred geometry, and the lost keys of Freemasonry
The Temple of Solomon was only one of many ancient structures that drew on the temple tradition. The insights of this tradition have been passed down through those in society tasked with protecting ancient wisdom, secret societies like the Knights Templar and the Freemasons. But over time, as cultures and technologies changed, the meaning of these cryptic symbols and rituals became obscured . . . until now. This book explores the esoteric body of knowledge that shaped the world of our forebears, gave rise to the world’s most awe-inspiring temples and cathedrals, and continues to fuel speculation about powerful forces at work in our world.
