Overview

The Freemasons are often said to be the world's most influential secret society, and the story of this enigmatic fraternity is wrapped in mystery and intrigue. Their involvement in shaping political world events has stretched over centuries, even to the extent that Masonic principles lie beneath the establishment of the United States and its Constitution.

The Brotherhood is reckoned to be the privileged guardian of certain ancient secrets, but Masonic Constitutions state that the secrets were lost over three centuries ago. So who are the Freemasons and what is their history and purpose? Stories of the biblical King Solomon and his Jerusalem Temple reside at the heart of modern Freemasonry, but its beginnings stretch back even further in time. How are the secrets of the Ark of the Covenant and the Philosophers' Stone related to the original Masonic tradition? What powerful role was entrusted to an elite lodge of Knights Templars that led them to become established as the Guardian Princes of the Royal Secret? What change occurred in the 17th century that caused the Fraternity to burn their records for fear of explosive secrets being discovered?

In The Shadow of Solomon, Laurence Gardner answers these questions, presenting a fascinating historical detective trail that leads from the most ancient records of the Fraternity to modern times. Gardner's in-depth research exposes the conflicts and intrigues that have guarded the real secret of Freemasonry for centuries ... a secret which has potentially shattering implications for what we think we might know about history and cutting-edge science.

For Freemasons, Dan Brown readers, and others who might wonder what secrets lie behind the mysterious and influential fraternity, The Shadow of Solomon is the definitive insider's account of the startling truth behind Masonic history — and the centuries-long search that the fraternity has undertaken to find its own lost secrets.

Laurence Gardner, a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, is a constitutional historian and Professional Member of the Institute of Nanotechnology. Distinguished as the Chevalier de St Germain, he is attached to the European Council of Princes (a constitutional advisory body established in 1946) as the Jacobite Historiographer Royal. In the artistic domain, he has been Conservation Consultant to the Fine Art Trade Guild, and in the world of music his libretto compositions have been performed at London's Royal Opera House. He is also Executive Producer for a Hollywood movie company. Prior of the Knights Templars of St Anthony (1561) and of the Sacred Kindred of St Columba, he is also the internationally bestselling author of Bloodline of the Holy Grail, Realm of the Ring Lords, Genesis of the Grail Kings, Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark and The Magdalene Legacy.
