Quick Overview

The Temple of Solomon has been a source of fascination and spiritual reverence for over three thousand years. The building itself was destroyed more than once, on the last occasion by the Romans, yet the great church of Hagia Sophia, the Dome of the Rock, the headquarters of the Templars and numerous medieval cathedrals were all conceived as symbolic re-creations of the original. Mystics of all faiths had visions of a celestial Temple where divine secrets would be revealed to mankind.This lively account is guaranteed to intrigue everyone with a sense of history, both real and imagined.
