Inferno Author Dan Brown íHonouredí to be Invited to Join Freemasons
By Adam Sherwin | The Independent
The Freemasonsí Code: Dan Brown reveals the message that told him the door to the lodge is open.
His best-selling novels illuminate the shadowy organisations that supposedly run the world. But Dan Brown was ďhonouredĒ to receive an invitation to join the Freemasons, the arcane fraternity whose tentacles are said to extend into the highest echelons of power.
Tonight the Da Vinci Code author made a rare public appearance, discussing his latest Dante-inspired blockbuster, Inferno, in front of 1,500 fans in London.
The choice of venue, Freemasonís Hall, the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England, reflects the authorís fascination with the male-dominated medieval society, founded in London, which has long been the centre of conspiracy theories about its supposed global influence.
ďI would be honoured to be a Mason,Ē Brown told the Independent before the event. ďYou donít get Ďinvitedí by the Masons but they sent a clear message that the door is open if I ever want to join.Ē
Brownís 2009 novel The Lost Symbol suggested that the government in Washington was secretly run by a coven of Freemasons practising sinister rites.
However Brown said: ďIíve nothing but admiration for an organisation that essentially brings people of different religions together, which is what they do."
ďRather than saying Ďwe need to name Godí, they use symbols such that everybody can stand together.Ē
Everybody except women, who are refused entry.
ďI guess itís a little oxymoronic,Ē said Brown. ďBut there are certainly womenís organisations and I think thereís a place for men to be together alone.Ē
Brown portrayed Opus Dei as a sinister Catholic cult in the Da Vinci Code. Inferno introduces The Consortium, a secretive organisation pulling strings behind the scenes which the book claims is an amalgamation of real groups. Yet Brown sees the Masons as an entirely benign fraternity.
ďFreemasonry is not a religion but it is a venue for spiritual people to come together across the boundaries of their specific religions,Ē he said. ďIt levels the playing field.Ē
The authorís only hesitation before undertaking the notorious Masonic initiation ritual is that he would have to take a ďvow of secrecyĒ and would be unable to utilise his masonic insights in future novels.
