Unbeknownst to the masses, and despite the fervent objections by early Church fathers to “the mysteries,” Christianity possesses its own mysteries. In reality, many of Christianity’s most germane features were part of the Pagan mysteries, which the Christians turned inside out by making them public. Indeed, Christianity was “in its origin a secret society.”
Over the ages, there have existed numerous brotherhoods that have possessed gods, rituals, rites, myths and mysteries quite similar to those of Christianity but that preceded the Christian era by centuries and millennia. Many of these brotherhoods have much in common with each other, having been demonstrated by numerous authorities beginning in antiquity, to be related in one fashion or another. The similarities that connect specific fraternities are not limited to gods, rituals, myths, etc., but also include physical artifacts such as symbols and architecture, i.e., masonry. As shown, a number of crafts guilds have also been religious brotherhoods and have their origins in ancient times. The religious tradition of the Irish, for example, included “the divine smith” who was likewise “a great builder, or a resourceful master mason.” The giant smith or forger was a very important and popular image in ancient English culture, as it was in Greek and Roman. In Egypt, the famed and “very ancient” god Iemhetep was the “god of physicians and those who dealt in medical magic.” As physicians had their god, who was likewise a physician, so too did carpenters and smiths, the latter of whom revered Ptah-Hephaistos in Egypt. In the same manner masons revered a masonic or stone-cutter god, and it is apparent that, as was the case with these various other crafts in ancient times, there were masonic guilds that also served as mystery schools, secret societies and religious sects.
