"There are images and ideas contained in this book which may well challenge your "knowledge" of American history, the evolution of society, and the place of America in the world-at-large. Read it with an open mind and you may be surprised at what you find." (Mike Gleason, Witchgrove, March 2007)
"The ultimate book about the secrets of our Founding Fathers. It is, very simply, the best thing of its kind that has ever been written. Careful research and years of effort show in this beautiful work--as exciting and informative as it is important." (Whitley Strieber, host of Dreamland with Whitley Strieber)
"Founding Fathers, Secret Societies is that rare thing--a really excellent, thoroughly researched, and beautifully written book. I learned something new on every page." (Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods)
"I can think of no living man who has done as much as Dr. Hieronimus to investigate the mysteries surrounding the founding of the United States of America. Providing more than a revelation of the spiritual vision behind the founding of a new nation, Hieronimus sets a standard which contributes to the perpetual re-making of that ashlar cornerstone upon which the American experiment has been, is being, and will be built as the Novus Ordo Seclorum unfolds." (David Ovason, author of The Secret Architecture of Our Nation's Capital and The Secret Symbolism of)
“Robert Hieronimus’s historical analysis could not come at a more crucial time. The United States has reached a critical point in its history, one that will not only affect its destiny but that of the rest of the world. Hieronimus has made an in-depth analysis of the founders of the United States, starting with the League of Iroquois and the European esoteric societies, proceeding to the impact of Masonic symbolism and the creation of the Great Seal, especially the images on its reverse side. He delivers an inspiring message of hope for a culture that is badly torn, a culture critically in need of the renewed vision described in this remarkable book.” (Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Saybrook Graduate School, Coeditor of Varieities o)
“A vision that can unite, guide, and inspire us is increasingly possible when we know more of the rich history that helped launch our nation. Too much of this history has been unknown; too many facts have been hard to come by. It is a special delight to learn more of our history with Robert Hieronimus who is so careful to not exaggerate sources or certainty.” (David A. Burnet, Grand Councilor Emeritus and former Treasurer of the English Grand Lodge, Rosicruci)
“Anyone turning the pages of Founding Fathers, Secret Societies opens a secret door to the lost history of our country. By exposing the hidden roots of the United States, Robert Hieronimus has restored a sense of American destiny.” (Frank Joseph, author of The Lost Treasure of King Juba)
“. . . makes an intriguing case that combines a number of historical threads to provide a new interpretation of the United States’ founding. Most importantly, Robert Hieronimus starts at the beginning, with our truly American founding, notably with the Great Law of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy. This work should put to rest any remaining notions that the founding was a result of spontaneous intellectual combustion in a Philadelphia meeting room.” (Bruce E. Johansen,author of Forgotten Founders: How the Iroquois Helped Shape Democracy)
"Founding Fathers is a breath of fresh air. . . . [Hieronimus] corrects errors and offers superb summaries of available evidence." (Living Traditions, May 2006)

"This is one you'll have to read and evaluate if you're into intricacies of theory and mind-bending history." (Marilus Hornidge, Book Bag, June 1, 2006)
"Certainly this is a book for anyone interested in American history or in the various secret societies that may have had an influence on America’s founding. . . . a rich feast of history, esoteric movements, symbology and psycho-sociology." (Karl Schlotterbeck, Henge Happenings, Issue 70, Beltaine 2006)

All children growing up in America learn who the Founding Fathers were. Most, however, never learn of the founders’ connections to the Freemasons, the Rosicrucians, and other esoteric orders. In Founding Fathers, Secret Societies Robert Hieronimus investigates these important connections--as well as the founders' connections to the League of the Iroquois--and how the influence of these groups can be traced throughout our most significant national documents and symbols, especially the Great Seal. He reveals in detail how the reverse of the Great Seal, which appears on the back of the one-dollar bill, is a blueprint that conveys the secret destiny of America. By understanding the kabbalistic meaning of the Great Seal’s reverse, we discover the unique opportunities the current era presents for achieving the Founding Fathers’ spiritual vision.
ROBERT HIERONIMUS, Ph.D., is a historian, visual artist, and radio host. His weekly program, 21st Century Radio with Dr. Bob Hieronimus, broadcasts New Paradigm topics across the United States. He lives in Maryland.

Regardless of weather or not I agree with Hieronimus' point of view (which I do largely), I find that his insistence on his agenda greatly undermines his argument. Read morePublished on May 12, 2014 by Lizzie girl
