The Secrets of Masonic Washington

 

The Secrets of Masonic Washington*

James Wasserman**

 

In this guide to the Masonic underpinnings of America's capital, James Wasserman reveals the esoteric symbols and the spiritual and visionary ideas that lie hidden in the buildings, monuments, and physical layout of Washington, D.C. His walking tour of these Masonic sites includes both the expected and unexpected -- from the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol Building to the Federal Reserve complex, National Academy of Sciences, and the Library of Congress. Each location includes descriptions, interpretations, and explanations of the Masonic symbols and ritualistic meanings hidden within its structure, all illustrated with contemporary color and historic black-and-white photographs.

 

Wasserman explains the purpose behind putting these symbols and Masonic designs into the capital and how all these monuments fit into the spiritual vision held by the founding fathers. He reveals the prominent role that Freemasonry played in the 18th-century Enlightenment movement and shows how in the New World of America, free of monarchy and aristocracy, the ideas of the Enlightenment were able to flourish. This illustrated guidebook to the Masonic secrets of Washington, D.C., provides valuable insights on the founding of America. It will be welcomed by students of esoteric art and symbolism, admirers of American history, and devotees of Dan Brown novels and National Treasure movies.

 

"More than a breathtaking pictorial tour of Washington DC, this book is an archaeological expedition to a "lost city" whose mystical treasures and traditions are hidden in plain sight -- a city designed and built to be a powerful talisman and the beating heart of a spiritual entity that transcends all religions -- a city whose very streets invoke the invisible energies that drive the evolution of human consciousness -- a city inspired by a civic priesthood we know today as Freemasonry."

Lon Milo DuQuette, author of The Key to Solomon's Key: Secrets of Magic and Masonry
