Born In Blood

by John J. Robinson

Its mysterious symbols and rituals had been used in secret for centuries before Freemasonry revealed itself in London in 1717. Once known, Freemasonry spread throughout the world and attracted kings, emperors, and statesmen to take its sacred oaths. It also attracted great revolutionaries such as George Washington and Sam Houston in America, Juarez in Mexico, Garibaldi in Italy, and Bolivar in South America. It was outlawed over the centuries by Hitler, Mussolini, and the Ayatollah Khomeini. But where had this powerful organization come from? What was it doing in those secret centuries before it rose from underground more than 270 years ago? And why was Freemasonry attacked with such intense hatred by the Roman Catholic Church?

This amazing detective story answers those questions and proves that the Knights Templar in Britain, fleeing arrest and torture by pope and king, formed a secret society of mutual protection that came to be called Freemasonry. Based on years of meticulous research, this book solves the last remaining mysteries of the Masons - their secret words, symbols, and allegories whose true meanings had been lost in antiquity. With a richly drawn background of the bloody battles, the opportunistic kings and scheming popes, the tortures and religious persecution that were the Middle Ages, it is an important book that may require that we take a new look at the history of events leading to the Protestant Reformation.

1918 - 1996

John J. Robinson was that rare breed of writer who was not a Mason when he began producing his books, but became captivated by the fraternity while doing his work and entered a Masonic lodge late in life. His 1989 book Born In Blood was the best selling work on the subject of Freemasonry for twenty years. His last book, A Pilgrim's Path, touched many Masons with its insightful and resonant observations about the craft.

John came to this work after a long life in which he had been a business executive, farmer and member of the U.S. Marines. His abiding interest in the history of Medieval Britain and the Crusades not only spurred his research into those realms, but led to his becoming the head of a family trust dedicated to historical study. Through chance occurrence, his work caused him to become enmeshed with Freemasonry and the Knights Templar.
