FIRST written more than 10 years ago, Sons of the Widow has been updated to take account of new developments in Freemasonic research – but its general theme remains unaltered. Modern day Freemasons persistently maintain that Freemasonry is not a secret organisation, but an organisation with secrets. In recent years the organisation has ‘opened up’ to the inquisitive outside world in a manner which would have been unheard of previously – to the extent of even hosting its own websites – while books detailing Freemasonic rituals can be acquired with ease by the uninitiated. Yet secrets remain – secrets unknown to even the vast majority of Freemasons themselves. None of the readily available manuals on Freemasonic ritual actually explain the esoteric background. Sons of the Widow casts a new light on the dark mysteries of Freemasonry and reveals, for the first time, how the central motif of Freemasonic ritual is one of death and resurrection – a motif with roots in our ancient past. It explains how the Freemason has to symbolically die to achieve illumination - how all Freemasons become, through ritual, ‘sons of the widow’.
