Professor Schuchard's presentation on the Stuart Jacobite Catholic & Protestant heretic fringe of Freemasons, clerical Knights, trade craft and the sub-sects of mystical Christian sects and the cabalistic sex magic themes of the wound obsessed Moravian community on Fetter Lane and everyone from Wesley to Swedenborg and Mesmer, is nothing short of arresting. The research she has done is the result of enfranchised entrenchment that formerly could have only come from the experiential insight of a practitioner or member of these subcultures. Of particular note is the way she is able to methodically explain the influences and intended interpretations of Blake's poetry and art, something that in previous attempts, the most adept mystics have only been able to refer to as a mystery. Even more intriguing is her copy of Prince Bonnie Charles Stuart's Masonic passport, validating claims of the Stuart King's patronage of Freemasonry that had long since been dismissed by English historians. It is perhaps embarrassing for some how the Hanoverian agenda has biased so much of the official history of the 18th & 19th centuries. Only now as a result of contributions such as this book, are the dots (from Yeats to the Swedish Rite to Italian Freemasonry & French and German illuminists) being connected so that history might be viewed as it truly happened. One thing that becomes glaringly obvious from this text, the British historians have long since overlooked the Moravian context of "Blake's spiritualized sexuality". This is a tremendous work. My hat is off to Professor Keith.
