Overview

Many students of history believe that somewhere in the world there exists a brotherhood, or order of initiates, secretly guiding the destiny of humankind. Evidence suggests that the Magi, the three wise men who visited Jesus soon after his birth, were part of this brotherhood, and that, using their knowledge of the stars, they were expecting the birth of a messiah in 7 B.C.-the historical year of Jesus' birth-and may have acted as symbolic midwives for the event. This book shows how Jesus' horoscope can be seen hidden symbolically within the story of the Adoration of the Magi, and how the Magi's knowledge was preserved and passed back to the West at the time of the crusades.
