This astonishing bestseller raises questions that have challenged some of Western civilisation's most cherished beliefs: Were scrolls bearing the secret teachings of Jesus buried beneath Herod's Temple shortly before the destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman's? Did the Knights Templar, the forerunners of modern Freemasonry, excavate these scrolls in the twelfth century? And were these scrolls subsequently buried underneath a reconstruction of Herod's Temple, Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland - where they are now awaiting excavation?

Back cover copy

Are scrolls containing the secret teachings of Jesus buried in Scotland? The discovery that the most important incantation of Freemasonry is spoken in ancient Egyptian was the turning point of a six-year quest to find the lost roots of the Order. Chris Knight and Robert Lomas, both Freemasons, soon found themselves unravelling an extraordinary chain of events that started with the solving of a murder in ancient Thebes and concluded with the deciphering of a strange medieval building on a Scottish hilltop. Their astonishing bestseller The Hiram Key raises questions that challenge some of Western civilization's most cherished beliefs. Do the Gospels of the New Testament describe Jesus, the last claimant to the kingship of the Jews, practising the king-amking rituals of the ancient Egyptians? Were scrolls bearing the secret teachings of Jesus buried beneath Herod's Temple shortly before the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 AD? Did the Knights Templar, the forerunners of modern Freemasonry, excavate those scrolls in the twelfth century and then adopt the rituals they contained? And were these scrolls subsequently buried underneath a detailed reconstruction of Herod's Temple, on a Scottish hilltop - where they are now awairing re-excavation? 'A breakthrough book. The last four thousand years are never going to look the same again.'
