Download PDF by Eduardo R. Callaey: El otro Imperio cristiano

Existió, antiguamente, una alianza entre masones templarios y benedictinos que tenía un objetivo: un Imperio cristiano alrededor de Jerusalén.

La Revolución Francesa supone un punto de inflexión en l. a. historia de Europa, en todos los órdenes, en lo que a los angeles masonería se refiere, los angeles Revolución y los angeles Ilustración posterior corroboran l. a. victoria de l. a. facción agnóstica y republicana de los angeles masonería, que ya se había apuntado con l. a. creación de l. a. Gran Logia de Masones Libres y Aceptados de Inglaterra en 1717. Esta victoria hace olvidar que, originalmente, hubo una corriente masónica religiosa y monárquica, es más hubo una corriente masónica relacionada muy estrechamente con los angeles Orden Benedictina, los Caballeros Templarios y Las Cruzadas. El otro Imperio cristiano pretende, desde el escrupuloso rigor histórico, mostrar esa relación, no muy estudiada en los libros sobre masonería, entre masones, templarios y benedictinos, y demostrar que Las Cruzadas nacen de un plan de l. a. Orden de San Benito de Cluny para establecer un Nuevo Orden mundial, para lo que crearon una orden militar y demandaron l. a. ayuda masónica para edificar el nuevo imperio.

Hace hincapié Eduardo R. Callaey en las múltiples pruebas que existen de las relaciones entre templarios, masones y benedictinos y muestra cómo, pese a ser patentes, estas relaciones se han obviado o silenciado a lo largo de los angeles historia. Los benedictinos se asocian con los caballeros en los angeles reconquista de Toledo, pero serán los de Cluny los que crearán el concepto de milites, órdenes de caballería asociadas a los monasterios, de ahí nacen los templarios, de hecho es un benedictino el que redacta l. a. Regla de los Templarios. También los benedictinos organizarán las distintas logias masónicas de los angeles época y legarán, tanto a masones como a templarios, l. a. simbología del Templo de Salomón, que une a las tres órdenes. los angeles masonería fue una organización cristiana hasta el S. XVIII, Las Cruzadas fueron alentadas por dos papas – Urbano II y Gregorio VII – salidos de Cluny, cuando terminaron Las Cruzadas, muchos templarios se refugiarán en Escocia donde seguirán conectados con los masones escoceses en los que subsisten las principles benedictinas, los francmasones de Francia, apoyarán en todo momento a los escoceses. En el S. XVIII, cuando l. a. Reforma amenaza l. a. cristiandad surgen de nuevo benedictinos, masones y templarios para crear un Imperio cristiano transnacional, pero los angeles condena del Vaticano, el temor de los reyes y l. a. Revolución Francesa sumergen en el olvido l. a. conexión entre l. a. masonería y el cristianismo.

Razones para comprar l. a. obra:

• El tema de los masones y los templarios interesa al público como muestran los angeles cantidad de éxitos literarios que tratan sobre el tema.
• Aclara el origen del credo masónico y explica l. a. tendencia religiosa y monárquica que tras l. a. Revolución Francesa se olvida ya que l. a. tendencia beneficiada de esta es l. a. agnóstica-republicana.
• l. a. línea de investigación es novedosa porque une a los masones con los templarios y a ambos, en un triángulo inédito, con los angeles Orden de San Benito: los benedictinos.
• El autor, por su condición de masón, periodista e historiador, es experto en l. a. francmasonería, el simbolismo y los angeles historia de las religiones.

Unidos por el Templo de Salomón, benedictinos, masones y templarios, planearon l. a. conquista de Jerusalén y l. a. construcción de un nuevo Imperio cristiano cuyo centro fuera Jerusalén y no Roma, un Imperio transnacional conquistado a golpe de espada por los templarios y levantado, piedra a piedra, por los masones.

Sample text

With reference to Christ’s assumption of all humanity, Hilary uses similitudo to show how Christ’s “likeness” to humanity (in both a positive and negative sense) is the basis for his ability to contain all humanity in his body. However, without a polemical or scriptural prompt, Hilary does not usually use this term in the context of the assumption of all humanity. Rather, Hilary avoids all the technical terms used to introduce metaphor in classical rhetoric. Hilary’s avoidance of these terms 29 According to Weedman, “Hilary’s description of Christ’s human body anticipates his explanation of how Christ’s humanity functions for human salvation.

Rather Hilary’s meaning lies in between these possibilities. Humans are present in Christ’s body in a real, physical way, and so they enter heaven with Christ in a real, physical way. But this is a physicality that 33 Tr. ps.  . 34 In Matt. 3–9): Ciuitatem carnem quam adsumpserat nuncupat, quia, ut ciuitas ex uarietate ac multitudine consistit habitantium, ita in eo per naturam suscepti corporis quaedam uniuersi generis humani congregatio continetur. Atque ita et ille ex nostra in se congregatione fit ciuitas et nos per consortium carnis suae sumus ciuitatis habitatio.

10 In the Instructio of the Tractatus super Psalmos, Hilary introduces a metaphor in which he says that 8 For the equivalency of similitudo and simile, see McCall, Ancient Rhetorical Theories, 77. 45–59: Similitudo est oratio traducens ad rem quampiam aliquid ex re dispari simile. Ea sumitur aut ornandi causa aut probandi aut apertius dicendi aut ante oculos ponendi. 9 Out of the 13 times Hilary uses similitudo in the In Matthaeum, 11 of them are rhetorical uses to designate figurative language.
