21 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Tim Acheson on August 7, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is one of the great key-stone books of the popular history/religion genre.
The Hiram Key combines an interesting review of the history with some compelling theories, fascinating new ideas, and informed speculation.
The book is essentially a review of the mysterious history of freemasonry in the light of information from ancient Egypt and Christian scripture. A revised version of historical events is proposed, and some intriguing solutions offered to some unanswered questions.
The authors argue their points so confidently that the less sceptical reader might be convinced by everything they read. The purpose of this text is to present a new theory, rather than consider the opposing arguments. The reader should explore other sources for additional evidence to balance the author's arguments.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in secret societies, history, or religion - especially freemasonry, ancient Egypt, Christianity, or the knights templar.
You'll enjoy reading this fascinating book and perhaps learn a little bit of history too.

Format: Paperback
I knew nothing of Freemasonry before reading this book; I can't even remember what prompted me to read it in the first place. But no matter, because it is a fascinating piece of archaeological mystery writing. The authors seek to discover the origin of masonic ritual; and along the way the reader learns about the birth of middle eastern civilization with the Sumerians, the nature of king-making in ancient Egypt, the origin of the Jewish people, a very alternative (and provocative) description of the nature of Jesus's ministry, and the construction of what has become Christianity by the earliest Roman Christians. This book does not seem to be meant to promote freemasonry, so you won't be pummeled with masonic text. The function of the masonic text and ritual in this book is to tie together aspects of mid-eastern history and archaeology (and relevant portions of Celtic British Isles history) in a unique way.

.

I have known Masons most of my life and never thought to ask about the organization. As a secret society there was nothing they could have told me without violating their oaths. So, I never asked.

This book seems to lay-bare the history of the Freemasons and their ties to the Knights Templar. The most intriguing part of this book for me was the twentieth century discoveries in Egypt that proved (to some) that centuries of belief, customs and tradition are based on fact.

An interesting read.

Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas would be burned by the inquisition, both the one that went from the XIII to the XVI Centuries, as well as the modern version ones that have replaced fires by explosions, all of course in the name of God. This should be a mandatory book in schools but I can immediatly see that religious fanatics from all sorts, orientations and localizations would naturally include me in the list of those that should be eliminated just for suggesting it. The human stupidity has no boundaries, but fortunately there are a few that think. Human stupidity shields itself under religion, political beliefs, nationalism, etc. Man is man's worst enemy.
Read this book. It is not an easy reading, pleasant reading book. It is a must book for those that shall not satisfy themselves with the simplicity of platitudes and I do hope I do not sound like one of those that "has found the truth" and naturally want to impose it to everybody.

I found this book quite astounding. My father was a Mason and I never knew what on earth he was doing, but I knew they did good work but it was all very secret. This book was a real eye-opener to me and I found it very interesting, especially the research that was done on biblical events. I also read Uriel's Machine, by the same authors, which I found very absorbing and most educational.
