9780099548089: Lost Symbols?: The Secrets of Washington DC

The secrets, the myths and the facts behind Washington, D.C.'s design and its Masonic significance.

In this groundbreaking, original work, David Ovason reveals the intimate connections between the mysterious zodiacal symbols and the stellar lore of Washington, D.C. and the secret plan for the city.

There are over fifty complete zodiacs in Washington, D.C., all witness to an extraordinary stellar mystery. Why did generations of architects and artists put their lives and energies on the line, when designing this City of the Stars? What was their shared secret language? What or who drove them to create a city overflowing with such esoteric symbolism? What is the meaning behind the secret symbolism of Washington, D.C.'s layout? And what does it mean for America's future?

Review:

"The best-qualified writer on the market to ascertain these symbols in Washington, D.C." (Robert Hieronimus, with Laura Cortner, authors of The United Symbolism of America)

"His divagations into the architectural history of Washington are fascinating." ( Wall Street Journal)

"A fascinating work that will be sure to captivate and entertain readers interested in architecture, esotericism, Freemasonry" (C. Fred Kleinknecht, Sovereign Grand Commander, The Supreme Council)

"A fascinating and provocative work ... Meticulously researched ... if even half the zodiacal correspondences established by Ovason were intended by the architects and the planners, then he has discovered the secret of Washington DC's cosmic symbolism" (Art deHoyos, Grand Archivist and Grand Historian, The Supreme Council)

"This ambitious work looks at the Capitol, the Washington Monument, city planning, and the numerous zodiacs located throughout the city ... Contains thorough research and brilliant analysis." ( Library Journal (US))

Book Description:

An essential authoritative companion to Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol
