Overview

When Freemasons Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas set out on a personal quest to search out the origins of old rituals used by their Order, they did not expect to become involved in prehistoric astronomy or enmeshed in the development of Christianity. Fourteen years later they conclude their mission with The Book of Hiram. It puts forward explosive new evidence drawn from the latest archaeological discoveries, the Bible, and early versions of Masonic rituals.

The authors have now painstakingly rebuilt the long forgotten story contained in the scattered rituals of Freemasonry. They call this reconstructed legend "The Masonic Testament" because it tells a parallel story to the Bible, and describes events the Bible does not mention — including a secret science of astronomy that they reveal is encoded in the Bible.

The book concludes with the startling revelation that a lost science has changed the world before and could change it again:

  • Did the early kings of Israel, including David and Solomon, practice ritual child sacrifice?
  • Was the famous Jerusalem Temple dedicated to Venus worship?
  • Was the birth of Jesus long preordained by astrological events? Or did he plan his life and actions by the movements of the stars and planets?

The Book of Hiram will change everything you thought you knew about both the Bible and Freemasonry.

Christopher Knight completed his education with a degree in advertising and graphic design. He has always had a strong interest in social behavior and belief systems and for many years he has been a consumer psychologist involved in the planning of new products and their marketing. He is Chairman of a marketing and advertising company.

Robert Lomas gained a first class honors degree in electrical engineering before being awarded a PhD for his research into solid state physics and crystalline structures. He later worked on electronic weapon systems and has always had a keen interest in observational astronomy and the history of science. He currently lectures in Information Systems at Bradford University Management Centre.

The book gave a beginning to end history of religion and who it affected the formation of the Masonic Fraternity. I learned the underlying significance of lodge ritual, but also of things found in the lodge room. One thing I regret is the book is no longer available for purchase at Barnes & Noble because I wanted to buy extra copies for friends.

An attempt to intergrate western europe's past into Masonry's history through the 'builders' profession, with over emphasis portrayed for possible hidden rituals in a possible masonic hall in United Kingdom. Authors intentions of basing rituals as a tool for hidden biblical truths is over emphasized. It is not scholarly written, and at most is 'preying' on the secret minded individuals. Could be regarded as a leading cause for decadence in Rome's historical perspective. The authors are to premature to write books concerning masonry, with only hidden intentions to assist in the expected bibilical predictions for the 1000 year governing.
