In a 2009 interview, Peter Levenda, "author of 'The Secret Temple,' (picture)
discussed the history, rituals, and symbols of Freemasonry, the
brotherhood’s connection to groups like Scientology, Theosophy, and the
Mormons, and why it all matters," with host Derek Gilbert of View From The Bunker. Levenda puts Freemasonry in perspective, suspecting connection to Knights Templar. There's after all obvious link in young men's Freemason organization: Order of DeMolay, the order named after Templar's last Grand Master, Jacques DeMolay The author also feels Albert Pike represents a culmination of sorts for Freemasonry with his book, "Morals and Dogma". Freemason historian Albert Mackey, a Pike colleague, is also discussed. Levenda interview offers an easy avenue for delving further into Freemasonry.
