Dan Brown's "The Solomon Key" is forthcoming, and like "The Da Vinci Code", draws on ancient arcana and secret societies tied to a modern conspiracy. These two classic texts of the occult shed further light on Brown's source materials. A. Bothwell-Gosse's "The Knights Templars" includes chapters on the beliefs, customs, rituals, symbolisms, and history of this organization, reputed to be the spiritual predecessors of the Freemasons. "The Key Of Solomon The King" is Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers' translation of a set of ancient manuscripts found in the British Museum. Some believe these to be the words and instructions of King Solomon himself. The secrets contained in the works of these two scholars of speculative matters have fuelled many modern conspiracy theories, with tendrils reaching from the Vatican to the Founding Fathers.
