Secrets of Angels, Demons, Masons is the ultimate guide to the secret societies of Dan Brown's thrillers.
The program unravels the conspiracy theories brought to light in Dan Brown's novel Angels and Demons. Brown raises questions about the age-old conflict between science and religion in a plot that pits a secret society known as the Illuminati against the Catholic Church. The first hour, "Secrets of Angels and Demons", goes inside the secretive world of Vatican City, questioning the existence of the bones of St. Peter, the unsolved death of John Paul I, and the elaborate rituals of the Vatican cardinals. As the clues and mysteries of Dan Brown's novel are explored, listeners gain an unprecedented glimpse into the top-secret world of the Catholic Church. Just as in Brown's The Da Vinci Code, we are forced to examine matters of faith in entirely new ways.
The program's second hour, "Secrets of Masons", uncovers the truth about the Freemasons and explores its surprising role in the founding of America. Since the group's inception, the secrecy and selectiveness of Freemasonry has inspired conspiracy theories implicating Masons in numerous world events from the French and American Revolutions to FDR's New Deal and the Vatican Bank Scandal. Masons are often accused of plotting to create a New World Order, "pulling the strings" behind such powerful organizations as the World Bank, the United Nations, and the International Monetary Fund. "Secrets of Masons" looks at the infamous Illuminati's connection to the Freemasons, questioning whether this relationship still exists, as Dan Brown would have us believe in Angels and Demons.
