The Invisible College
The Secret History of How the Freemasons Founded the Royal SocietyBook - 2009
"The Invisible College is a fascinating account of the turbulent political, economic and religious background to the formation of the Royal Society. It is set in an era of war against the Dutch, the Great Plague and the Great Fire of London. In particular, it reveals the hidden motives of one man Sir Robert Moray, who built on his experience of another organisation to structure mad gain finance for the Royal Society. The other body, the 'invisible college' as Boyle called it, is known today by the name of Freemasonry. obert Lomas will make you reassess many of the key events of this period and will show how Freemasonry, supported by Charles II, was the guiding force behind the birth of modern science, under the cover of the Royal Society."
