Overview


A fascinating book from Robert Lomas, co-author of The Hiram Key and The Second Messiah. Freemasonry and the Birth of Modern Science continues the Freemasonry saga by exploring its roots in The Royal Society, a group dedicated to the pursuit of scientific study.

In a time when superstition and magic governed reason, the repressive dogma of Christian belief silenced many, and where a turbulent political and economical background dominated, these men forbade any discussion of religion at their meetings. Lomas claims that modern experimental science was born out of The Royal Society, which was secretly funded by The Invisible College, which is known today as Freemasonry.

    Are the Masons Responsible for Scientific Development?

    What seems to be an extremely well researched book on the founding and development of Freemasony in England and Scotland and it's relationship to the founding and development of the Royal Society. The book presents a good case of how modern science really began with the support of Charles II under the disguise of the Royal Society, and how despite the civil war, the war against the Dutch, and natural disasters, men of various religious and poltiical views came together to form the Royal Society and put aside their squabbles in the pursuit of a unified goal. Lomas' writing is not the most compelling, but he does a very good job in backing up his assertions and conclusions.
