Summary

We have all been told that Solomon was a noble and wise ruler in ancient times. However, in the past twenty years, much of our understanding about biblical times has changed. Eminent archaeologists have indicated that Solomon was not his real name, but one given to him some time after his death. Furthermore, increased understanding of ancient languages has resulted in the correction of many translation errors and changed our perception of biblical events. This reveals that what the church has promoted for several centuries may have to be reconsidered. This book reveals a secret that has been lying at the center of Freemasonry for hundreds of years. Who really was Solomon and what was the nature of the secret knowledge he possessed? This book reveals how the temple would have worked and its connection to modern Freemasonry. The pentagram, or Solomon's Seal, is a Masonic symbol. Where did it come from and what is its meaning?
