Genesis of Freemasonry by Dr David Harrison

Historian Dr David Harrison constructs the hidden history of Freemasonry through a mixture of mediaeval guild societies, alchemy and necromancy. From his book The Genesis of Freemasonry, this video comes from On the Level in which Andrew Selwyn -Crome interviews Historian Dr David Harrison.

In the interview, Aelwyn-Crome examines the earliest known Freemasons and their obsessions with Solomon’s Temple, alchemy and prophecy. In that exploration he looks at the formation of the Grand Lodge in London which leads to rebellions within the Craft throughout England and the formation of the antients, a York line of early Masonry.

In the interview, Harrison discusses the role of French immigrant Dr Jean Theophilus Desaguliers in the development of English Freemasonry, focusing on his involvement with the formation of the mysterious modern Masonic ritual.
