The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

King solomon incorporated many of  the ancient Egyptian mysteries into the building of his temple because he had a direct connection to the Egyptians that came before him.

King Solomon would have known of the traditions of the Egyptian mystics at the time of the building of his temple since one of his earliest wives was a princess from Egypt and he would have learned from her much of the culture.

Egyptian Mysticism enlightens our perception of ourselves as humans and sheds light into the meaning of the three degrees of Masonry.  As a result, Egyptian mysticism filtered into the western traditions of the Jews and the Greeks, and from there into the modern day culture.

In modern times,The Shriners, an appendant body of the masonic order, has incorporated much of the Egyptian culture into its ceremonies and thus carries on some of the traditions of the ancient civilization.

So there seems to be a natural progression from the times of the pharaohs, and before, until today.

Since time immemorial, the world has been greatly influenced by masonic teachings, many of today’s problems could be solve if we would once again return to the knowledge taught within the lodge.
