Lost Symbols?

The Secrets of Washington DC




The original forerunner to Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, revealing the facts behind the lost symbol mystery.

There are over twenty complete zodiac symbols in Washington DC, each one pointing to an extraordinary mystery, all linked to the mysteries of Freemasonry.

It is well-known that most US politicians, including its Presidents, have been Freemasons. It suits the higher echelons of Freemasonry that outsiders view their organisation as merely a boring dining club for middle-aged businessmen and civil servants, but the truth is that at the high levels of initiation, Freemasons are concerned with influencing the course of history, not only by conspiring to bring secret political pressures to bear, but also by means of the occult.

In this key work, David Ovason reveals the occult principles behind Washington DC’s architecture, layout and symbolism. Explaining why these zodiac symbols have been placed in such abundance in the centre of the capital, and their intimate connections with the Freemason’s control of the destiny of the United States.
