I thought the research and most of the conclusions were spot on. There's only one conclusion that I didn't agree with. I don't believe that the Masons past or present worshiped the Goddess. I believe that the many Goddess figures throughout D.C. are symbolic in nature, rather than objects of Masonic worship by our founding fathers, many of whom were Masons. The Masons, as do the Rosicrucians, have many symbols that are rife with meaning. None of these symbols are worshiped, although they have deep meaning and significance. Still, a great, well-researched book and I am looking forward to reading this author's latest book on the Rosslyn chapel!

The Author may have spent 30 years as a well known student in his various areas of studies, however, be cynical of certain conclusions made.

Even in the introduction to this book, there are statements which cast doubt on the validity of the rest of the book.

Suggest the reader examine and research what this Author has written for themselves, in order to draw their own conclusions.

There are many Authors who can read and write books about Freemasonry who might misinterpert or misunderstand what has actually taken place unless they are in the know themselves.

Suggest anyone interested in the various activities, goals and beliefs of the Free and Accepted Masonic Fraternity visit a Masonic Lodge or with a Mason. The resulting conversation may well be worth your time.

What is the Goddess's city? Well you must read this to find out. Perhaps you will be surprised or maybe you already know the answer. At any rate I am not telling.
