Abstract:

Drawing upon often neglected fragments of history, this book presents evidence for a mysterious Great Plan at the core of the nation's founding. Occult scholar Manly P. Hall argues that humanistic, esoteric, and mystical orders collaborated in setting aside the American continent for a world-shaking experiment in enlightened self-government and religious liberty. The author locates the seeds for this plan 1,000 years before the beginning of the Christian era, exploring figures such as the Pharaoh Akhnaton, Plato, and Plotinus. Once hatched in the colonial age, the Great Experiment involved: Christopher Columbus, who may have been an agent of an esoteric order; English intellectuals Bacon and Raleigh; founders Washington and Franklin, who had esoteric associations; and a network of Rosicrucians, mystics, and Freemasons whose ideals of religious freedom traveled to American soil.--From publisher description.
