The Hiram Key is a book that will shake the Christian world to its very roots. When Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, both Masons, set out to find the origins of Freemasonry they had no idea that they would find themselves unraveling the true story of Jesus and the original Jerusalem Church. As a radically new picture of Jesus started to emerge, the authors came to the startling conclusion that the key rituals of modern Freemasonry were practiced by the early followers of Jesus as a means of initiation into their community.… (més)

I came to "Hiram Key" thinking "this will be a particularly woolly conspiracy theory" and I was dead-on right. To the best of my understanding the thesis is that Freemasonry comes from ancient Egypt rather than eighteenth century Britain, and that Jesus was a Freemason (and had a wife and kid) and that pretty much every shadowy organisation in history gets a mention (including the Priory of Sion and the Cathars). Somehow Rosslyn Chapel and the Dead Sea Scrolls also get shout outs.

There's some entertainment to be had in "Hiram Key" but to be honest Knight didn't sway my beliefs around the Freemasons. ( )

Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, both Masons, set out to find the origins of Freemasonry and ended up at Rosslyn.

An interesting study of the history of Freemasonry, but they allow their speculations to get more than a bit wild.

Nice pictures of the inside of the chapel though.

The theory put forward in this book rests on a very important linchpin, as they state here: "One of the strangest and yet most important in our reconstruction of the Babylonian exile was the prophet Ezekiel... Ezekiel was the architect of the imaginary or idealised Temple of Yahweh, and we would argue that it was the most important of them all!"

However, most scholars disagree with them as they state, "Many twentieth-century experts have concluded that these works were the output of several much later people, circa 230 BC onwards. This would place it close to the dating as the oldest 'Dead Sea Scrolls' found at Qumran, thought to date from around 187 BC to AD 70."

If this were true, then it would totally screw up their theory. How do they respond? Like this, "If this is the case it would affect our thesis, serving only to confirm the already massive links between these writings and the Qumran Community, so FOR CONVENIENCE WE ASSUME at this stage that the Book of Ezekiel was indeed written by one man whilst in captivity in Babylon." (Caps are mine for emphasis.) In other words, "since most scholars have demonstrated facts that don't jive with our theory, we're just going to ignore them." What this all means to me, is that this book is utter garbage!

What I have quoted from the 'The Hiram Key' can be found on page 176. ( )

Christopher Knight’s and Robert Lomas’s The Hiram Key is a laughable “history” of secret societies, the Freemasons, Judeo-Christian historical figures, and Egyptian Gnosticism. Therein lies the problem with writing about secret societies. Not much can either be proven or disproven. Their very clandestine nature requires that they do not leave a lot of historical documentation in their wake. Lomas and Knight try unflaggingly to connect small clues in artifacts and letters together to illustrate an alternate reading of history. They include the classic story of Jesus’s hidden family and the Rosslyn Chapel conspiracy along with evidence of an Egyptian influence on Judaism and the existence of secret scrolls that tell the true story of Freemasonry.

This book is laced with conspiracies, conjecture, and confusion. Luckily, each chapter has a handy-dandy conclusion section that you can skip to when you get too overwhelmed by the writers’ avalanche of secret knowledge. The whole book is basically a call to arms to dig up a church so that they can “prove” some of the more outlandish theories that they propose. There is little here by way of a bibliography or even footnotes, so tracing their scholarship is nearly impossible. You just have to sit back and enjoy the ride they take you on. And trust me: it is quite a wild ride. ( )

Otkriće da je najvažnija inkantacija slobodnog zidarstva, govoreno još u starom Egiptu, bila je tačka preokreta šestogodišnjeg traganja za korenima izgubljenog Poretka. Kris Najt i Robert Lomas, obojica slobodni zidari, po njihovim rečima, upustili su se u istraživanja porekla masonstva. U središtu njihovog istraživanja je zagonetna ličnost, Hiram Abif zidar Solomonovog hrama, čija je smrt opisana u istoriji masonstva, mada se ne pominje u Starom zavetu. Istražujući ritual postavljanja kralja, praktikovan u Starom Egiptu četiri hiljade godina, i niza događaja od Tebe do Jerusalima, kao i otkriće jednog ubistva iz 1670., pored otkrića da Hiram nije nikakva mistifikacija, već stvarna ličnost, istraživači su došli do novog viđenja istorije Zapada. Zapadni svet se, po uvidima autora, razvio na staroj filozofiji sadržanoj na tajnom sistemu, koji je isplivao na površinu u tri ključna momenta u poslednje tri hiljade godina.
