Product Description

From the Back Cover

HISTORY / RELIGION After the book of Exodus, Moses's two sons and numerous descendants all vanish from the Bible. Flavio Barbiero's investigation of this strange absence and his study of the centuries-long power struggle between the priestly families fighting for control of the temple of Jerusalem starts with the rebellion against Rome--and the emergence of Josephus Flavius, one of Moses's descendants, on the world stage. In AD 70 when the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by Titus Flavius and thousands of Jewish priests were exterminated, Josephus, now bearing his sponsor's last name, followed Titus Flavius to Rome with at least 250 relatives and friends. Here they were made Roman citizens but then subsequently disappeared from recorded history. Barbiero's careful study of early Christianity shows, however, that these surviving members of Moses's high-priest lineage succeeded in taking control of the nascent Roman Church and masterminded its extraordinary success. Using a wide range of evidence drawn from fields as disparate as archaeology, heraldry, and genetics, Barbiero shows how these descendants of Moses used the cult of Mithras to eventually seize control of the secular Roman authority as well. He then follows, step by step, the spread of the members of this secret priestly elite into what was to become the aristocracy of medieval Europe and how their influence continues to be felt in modern secret societies like Freemasonry. FLAVIO BARBIERO is a retired admiral in the Italian Navy who last served with NATO. He is the author of several books, including The Bible Without Secrets, and is an archaeological researcher in Israel. He lives in Italy.

HASH(0x9f9d5a98) out of 5 stars "The Secret Society Of Moses", a book by Flavio Barbiero. June 2 2010
By M. Mariba - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an interesting book by Flavio Barbiero detailing the censorship of Moses & his descendants in the Bible including the disappearance of his sons in the books Joshua & Judges. The author suggests this censorship starts/suggested from the circumstances of Moses's death & burial. To quote directly from Deuteoronomy "So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD. And HE buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor : but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day". Despite this allieniation of Moses & his family, they managed to surface again as priests & heads of Israel, heavily influenced the evolution of Judeo-Christian roots of Roman Empire, European Aristocracy & modern secret societies (Heraldry & Masonry). We know the Freemasons had a great influence on the Founding Fathers of US Constitution! Fascinating book on one of the most important prophet in the Old Testament & Torah, highy recommended reading.

HASH(0x9f9d5b7c) out of 5 stars Fascinating, a new historical perspective Aug. 7 2010
By abela - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Secret Society of Moses is one of those books that is so earth shaking in its theme that it might take time for it to be digested by the general public who find it interesting. Undoubtedly it will either be ignored or met with a wide variety of responses. Many people will not be able to handle it mind-expanding conclusions. The theme is so differ from the past that it probably will need more verification by other writers to break through established belief systems. If verified as true, it is very noteworthy and will lead to much new research. The writing is very good, and the research extensive.The Secret: What Great Leaders Know -- And Do

HASH(0x9f9d5df8) out of 5 stars Fascinating ideas July 26 2014
By Christopher Robinson - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've now read halfway through and eager to complete it, though have a strong inclination to recommend this already! On these types of topics, I expect to get 10% good and 90% baloney. From this book, I so far get 80% good and 20% questions. This is a book worthy of reading and rational consideration: historically and conceptually.

In this book, Flavio Barbiero presents a profound series of--interlinked but not interdependent--theories. What impresses me most is how Barbiero proves the first three hypotheses using the Pentateuch section of the Holy Bible as primary source.

Those are great proofs! One must conclude that if Moses existed as described in the Bible, then it is only logical from the textual evidence that his bloodlines were and are evermore influential.

They certainly are! Yet, while I'd prefer to believe the fantasy of all that's presented, I can only be won over by facts with solid logic. So far, things occuring after 300 A.D. things seem to me more fantasy than reality. But, it's possible the author is right and hasn't yet presented the proofs. (I need to read the last half and dig into the cited footnotes to do the honest work of evaluating it for myself. Until then, I wish to not fall into fantasy.)

Back to what I like: I am convinced the author could be dead-on accurate from Moses and the following 700-plus years. That's phenomenal... and even the concept of what is theorized is a reason to buy this book.

A ton of details are worthy of debate--in fact, I would like to see all details brought up for debate--but the first handful of generations from Moses are solidly presented. The details of who begat who, in my opinion, has less value than the greater good of considering the more general concept. The God of the Bible loved and treasured Moses. Overall, it seems logical that, in one way or another, Moses' bloodline is still very much a spiritual and political influence today.

HASH(0x9f9d80d8) out of 5 stars The thesis is interesting but lacks significant evidence to support ... Dec 12 2014
By OnTheSquare - Published on
Format: Paperback
The thesis is interesting but lacks significant evidence to support. A major geographic/historical mistake should not have been mistaken by an historian/archaeologist, in page 429 , the last paragraph states that Abraham and his tribe came from Nahor which was Ur of Chaldees that was in "Kurdistan north of Iraq" ! . But Ur is the well known Sumerian city located in Southern part of Iraq close to the present-day city of Nasiria . In this , Barbeiri debased his argument of the genetic link of the Cohanim to Kurdistan! To me, it is a gross mistake!

HASH(0x9f9d842c) out of 5 stars EXCELLENT SOLUTIONS TO AGE OLD QUESTIONS Nov. 20 2010
By Dorothy K. Morris, Author - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have always enjoyed reading books that show research on the cutting edge. This is one of them. This theory and the research behind the answers give so many solutions to questions that I have asked for so many years. So much of textbook history is false...based on in adequate research and information; this is not. I only hope that others delve just as deeply into the archives of historical documents and succeed in confirming his premise. I enjoyed reading every bit of it and will probably re-read it. I only hope that the author and you readers will read: "Secrets of the Exodus" by Messod and Roger Sabbah, which would be a frontspiece to this work. They fit together like hand in glove.
