Read e-book online El otro Imperio cristiano PDF

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 l. a. masonería se refiere, los angeles Revolución y l. a. Ilustración posterior corroboran los angeles victoria de l. a. facción agnóstica y republicana de l. a. masonería, que ya se había apuntado con los angeles creación de los angeles 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 l. a. 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 l. a. época y legarán, tanto a masones como a templarios, los angeles simbología del Templo de Salomón, que une a las tres órdenes. l. a. 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 rules benedictinas, los francmasones de Francia, apoyarán en todo momento a los escoceses. En el S. XVIII, cuando l. a. Reforma amenaza los angeles cristiandad surgen de nuevo benedictinos, masones y templarios para crear un Imperio cristiano transnacional, pero l. a. condena del Vaticano, el temor de los reyes y los angeles Revolución Francesa sumergen en el olvido l. a. conexión entre l. a. masonería y el cristianismo.

Razones para comprar los angeles obra:

• El tema de los masones y los templarios interesa al público como muestran l. a. 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 los angeles Revolución Francesa se olvida ya que los angeles tendencia beneficiada de esta es los angeles 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 l. a. 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.
