Could Freemasonry hold the secret to society's happiness. How has it been distorted to serve an elite cabal? A lost Universal Religion was practiced globally in antiquity. Its remains are memorialized in pyramids and temple architecture worldwide. Its wisdom is still visible in ancient ruins, and has been perpetuated in Western Secret Societies.
The most visible of these is the Masonic Fraternity, an age-old chivalric Order whose members have included the American President George Washington, French Philosopher Voltaire, and the German Composer Mozart. Fearing their secret might one future day be forgotten, the Freemasons of ages past—who were the builders of Europe’s and America’s churches, castles and cathedrals—wisely encoded its wisdom into the architecture of their constructions, where it remains concealed today.
By matching cathedral architecture with ancient temple design, Richard Cassaro shows the universality of the Universal Religion, which is the root wisdom of the Masonic Fraternity and the perpetuation of a life-changing ancient science.
Journalist Richard Cassaro is the author of two thought-provoking and richly-illustrated books that explore deep connections between secret societies and ancient civilizations. Written In Stone: Decoding The Secret Masonic Religion Hidden In Gothic Cathedrals And World Architecture gives the best account available in print about how religion began and how struggles over the meaning of spirituality shaped the world we live in today. The Missing Link: Powerful New Evidence of an Advanced “Golden Age” Culture in Prehistoric Antiquity solves one of the greatest mysteries in archaeology by explaining how a religious icon common to ancient civilizations scattered across the earth helps us to understand the nature and origins of powerful ideas that have come down to us through the millennia.
