Read full description of the books:
the authors are both masons and amateur historians who have done quite a bit of research. However, the more amazing the claim, the more proof is required. This book should have had at least 20 pages of bibliography of primary and secondary source material, along with an 'Additional reading" section if it wants to be taken seriously. There was no bibliography of any kind, and what references the authors make as the basis for their claims were done using footnotes throughout the text, without so much as even a page number or even year of publication. This type of casual scholarship will not get their claims looked at by the historian community, which is a shame as the authors have put years of work into their very interesting claims linking modern freemasonry with the Scottish knights templar and early stonemasons, linking back to the templars of the crusades, who, the authors think, uncovered scrolls in Jerusalem which contradict the Roman Catholic view of the life of Jesus, and which, the authors claim, link back the rituals used by modern masons all the way back to an ancient king-making ritual used in ancient Egypt. Stunning stuff, but without it being presented in the correct form, the authors have considerably les chance of getting their views taken seriously.
