    Born in Blood must be one of the most well researched book on Freemasonry that I have ever read The author, John J Robinson was NOT a Freemason when he began his research and writing quest, and was given completely open access to the Freemason library to complete his research on the single condition that he write a fair and accurate depiction of the Freemasons.I believe he accomplished just that Although John Robinson does tend to ramble at times and often makes the same points repeatedly, Born in Blood must be one of the most well researched book on Freemasonry that I have ever read The author, John J Robinson was NOT a Freemason when he began his research and writing quest, and was given completely open access to the Freemason library to complete his research on the single condition that he write a fair and accurate depiction of the Freemasons.I believe he accomplished ju...

    There are plenty of theories out there about the origins and purposes of Freemasonry This volume does a terrific job of putting the facts together and creating a convincing argument tying Freemasonry to the Knights Templar I m not fully convinced the connection is there, but it s still a pretty cool theory Much of the imagery, secret signs and ritualization supports this theory as do many of the historical events which occurred between the demise of the Order of the Knights Templar on Friday, There are plenty of theories out there about the origins and purposes of Freemasonry This volume does a terrific job of putting the facts together and creating a convincing argument tying Freemasonry to the Knights Templar I m not fully convinced the connection is there, but it s still a pretty cool theory Much of the imagery, secret signs and ritualization supports this theory as do many of the historica...

    Interesting argument that attempts to tie the origins of Free Masonry to the Knights Templar The author presents a strong argument and challenges other histories of the origins and purpose of the Free Masons Robinson does a pretty good job of arguing that the Knights Templar were broken by a conspiracy backed by the Catholic Church But, since England was partially broken away from Catholocism, and Scotland evenso, the British Isles provided safe haven for the Templars, although undergro Interesting argument that attempts to tie the origins of Free Masonry to the Knights Templar The author presents a strong argument and challenges other histories of the origins and purpose of the Free Masons Robinson does a pretty good job of arguing that the Knights Templar were broken by a conspiracy backed by the Catholic Church But, since England was partially broken away from Catholocism, and Scotland evenso, the British Isles prov...

    The title of this book was a bit misleading to me Born in Blood infers a sinister and murderous founding of Freemasonry In fact, the book is rather positive about the Masons while holding onto its partiality the author is not a Mason What the title refers to is the Peasant Revolt of the 14th century and the unjust butchering of the Knights Templar, and how these events coincided with the founding of Freemasonry Linking up these historical happenings is the interesting parts of the book The title of this book was a bit misleading to me Born in Blood infers a sinister and murderous founding of Freemasonry In fact, the book is rather positive about the Masons while holding onto its par...

    A very fun book masquerading as an academic endeavor Especially enjoyable if you like breathlessly related gossip, but only about prominent historical figures, or are curious about what people did in 1350 a.d before they had cable and had to make their own fun crusades and grisly torture were popular Oh yeah, also Masons The Masons finally show up about half way thought and then it starts to get kinda boring of note the author was not employed in any academic capacity during his life, wh A very fun book masquerading as an academic endeavor Especially enjoyable if you like breathlessly related gossip, but only about prominent historical figures, or are curious about what people did in 1350 a.d before they had cable and had to make their own fun crusades and grisly torture were popular Oh yeah, also Masons The Masons finally show up about half way thought and then it starts to get kinda ...

    This book, with certainty, falls into the category of speculative or alternative history However, even alternative histories are built on interpretations of accepted histories Robinson offers a very interesting history of the Peasants War, suggesting possible Templar ties to the uprising He moves to suggest that there existed a connection between the post Templar society of the Peasant War and the pre Grand Lodge traditions of Freemasonry Again, speculative in its historical assumptions, This book, with...
