Book Description

Decoding the Masonic symbols and history of Washington DC

Product Description

When George Washington, first President of the United States, laid the foundation stone of the Capitol Building of the city that was to bear his name, he did so wearing full Masonic regalia. Turning The Solomon Key is a riveting quest to discover the Masonic influences George Washington brought to bear on the layout of Washington DC.

History records that the builders of Washington DC knew a great Masonic secret about the human condition, and that their plans for the city were laid out on a Masonic grid rich in symbolism, hidden meaning and designed to express this secret power. Robert Lomas, an expert in the history of Freemasonry, goes in search of the truth behind this claim. Using Masonic rituals and Washington's diaries, Lomas uncovers the symbolic meaning behind the siting of the White House and the Capitol - and their connection to a secret passed down from one of the first Grand Masters of the Freemasons, King Solomon.

Turning the Solomon Key delves into the true history behind many of the symbols and mysteries that feature in Dan Brown's latest international bestseller, The Lost Symbol, and will be essential reading for all who want to discover the real significance to the masonic secrets of Washington DC.

2.0 out of 5 stars really not one of lomas best books 21 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
author robert lomas has written several very good books about the masons - "turning the hiram key" and "secrets of masonic rituals" however this one really fails to meet the mark for me.

there are some cute quotations from the diary of george washington but there is no mention of the pentagon/pentagram nor the hidden meaning of the bright morning star.

the second half of the book investigates astrology within the bounds of "science" as defined by richard dawkins which is a complete absurdity as the essence of masonic ritual is based on mysticism and religious experience (or cosmic experience if you prefer) - the existence of which is denied from a materialist perspective (scientism)

much better to read something like "the secret teachings of all ages"; "how to understand your bible", "Mystical Christ: Religion as a Personal Spiritual Experience" by Manly P. Hall (33 degree freemason) or "Stellar Theology and Masonic Astronomy" by Robert Hewitt Brown in which the deeper meaning of the myths and symbols is more fully revealed.

as i said above - lomas' books on masonic ritual are well worth reading but for a deeper understanding it is important to study astro-theology and the inner meaning of the masonic symbols and metaphors.

5.0 out of 5 stars A totally fascinating read 30 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It investigates why Washington DC was designed the way it was and can there be any correlation between man's development and the planets.

I like the way the author sets the scene and investigates it from a scientific background. He somehow manages to link ancient knowledge with modern day science to give a fascinating view of the ancient wisdom being proved by modern scientific knowledge.

I really enjoyed this slow technical read, more than a little thought provoking. It will stimulate more research for me.
