Freemasonry and King Solomon
According to Colin Wilson, p 226, author of "The Occult: A
"King Solomon was considered the master of all dealings with
the underworld, and many 'original' texts of his conjuration
circulated among magicians. The wording was Hebrew, written
in Roman characters. Solomon's Seal was considered a most
majic efficacious design, recommened by Peter of Abano for
the summoning of an air spirit." -- Kurt Seligmann, THE
HISTORY OF MAGIC AND THE OCCULT, Harmony Books, 1948, p.
201, as qouoted in secondary source "The Great Seal of the
United States", David Carrico, p.32
"The true philosoophy, known and practised by Solomon, is
the basis on which Masonry is founded." -- Albert Pike,
Freemason of the 33rd and last Degree, "Morals and Dogma of
the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Freemasonry", 1871, L.H.
Jenkins Inc., p. 785, as quoted from secondary source, "The
Great Seal of the United States: Its Occult Meaning", David
Carrico, 1977. This quote is taken from the Ritual of the

even further than King Solomon to the ancient mystery cults
of the olden world, a view which is also supported by Bible
Scriptures, since it's written therein that it was the evil
influence of Solomon's concubines, who praticed the ancient
cults, that led Solomon to fall into apostosay and witchery.
