4. Secret Societies (-4.3.5)

Stockholm state house

To weld the three “United Kingdoms” of Denmark, Sweden and Norway still more closely together, Margaret summoned a congress of the three Privy Councils to Kalmar in June 1397; and on “Trinity Sunday”, on June 17, the so called “Kalmar Union” was established. The German city, “Stockholm” in Sweden was liberated to become a city/port of major European importance.

I would suggest that it was during this period Queen Margaret I aligned today’s cross based nation flags of the Scandinavian countries with the Danish flag “Dannebrog”, which is known to be the oldest known nation flag in Europe. To make this part of history even more complex, I would also suggest that this initiative was both the fruits of Queen Margaret’s diplomacy and the result of already establish relations with Knights of the Cross such as the Knights Hospitaliers. This also would explain the origins of the Danish flag, which was the one flag that established flags as the common identifier of nations of the world.

I also would make a direct relation between the Kalmar Union and the similar Polish-Lithuanian union, were I suggest that a secret hub for international correspondence was established between east and west – in a Europe that were getting more and more controlled by the Roman Catholics. Brave men such as Władysław I&II, Vytautas, Gediminas had close relations with Novgorod and eventually established the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth as a result of the threat of the Roman Catholic Church. Could the so called “Gediminas pillars” be the same symbolic pillars of modern Freemasonry? Could the Polish-Lithuanian so called “Nobles democracy” have been a part of the roots to Freemasonry?

Oxford University Coat

The today seal of Oxford University

Above is the Oxford University coat of armour. “Dominus Illuminatio Mea” which comes from Psalm 27, may be translated as “the Lord is my light”. I will handle “the light” later, but what about the crowns. This is what the University homepage say: - “The origin of the three crowns is not known exactly but may be connected with Thomas Cranley, Warden of New College from 1389 to 1396 and Chancellor of the University in 1390, who adopted them for his personal use in 1386. They were also given by Richard II to Robert de Vere, 9th Earl of Oxford, when he created him Duke of Ireland in 1386. Three crowns were also associated with King Edmund the Martyr, King Arthur and Jesus Christ.”, the University of Oxfords homepage.” Interesting, eh? The period seems to match quite perfect with the events mentioned above and also the three crowns.

York seal

The 1705 Grand Lodge of York seal

Above is the seal of the old Grand Lodge of York 1705, which is belived to be the first “official” English Freemason Lodge.

Many professional historians point out Roslyn Chapel in Scotland as the place were Freemasonry was initiated, but I would go further back in time. In fact, I would point out the fact that the Chapel of Roslyn itself, which is a creation of great Gothic architecture, founded in 1446 by William St. Clair serves as the platform for synchronizing freemasonry in Europe. However, this also means that modern freemasonry existed before Roslyn Chapel was built.

As well as the Orkney Islands are known to have become a secret hideout when Roman Catholic Church begun it’s pursue of the Templar Knights, they are probably even more known for its ancient history and the relations with Scandinavians royalties like the old Swedish Sparre and Bååt families whose representatives had been kings of Sweden, Normandy, Gardarike (Russia), Sicily and who also had been very active in the areas of Norway, Ireland as well as they were Earls (Swedish: Jarls) of Orkney Islands.

Interesting knowledge: The English word “Boat” derives from the family name “Bååt”, which is related with their skills regarding designing and using boats. Also their coat of armour, which is a boat, shows the obvious relation. The so called “Bååtska palatset” (palace) in the city centre of Stockholm, Sweden, was built in 1662 on ground given to Seved Bååt by Queen Kristina and has officially been owned by Freemasons since 1874. This is just one of many palaces in Stockholm with similar history. For example: Between year 1776 – 1876 the Stockholm Freemason HQ was located at the “Schering Rosenhanes palats”.

Back to Roslyn; have in mind that William St. Clair who built the Roslyn chapel was the 3rd Prince of Orkney which of course would link him to the Swedish Jarls of Orkney and possibly Queen Margaret’s Kalmar Union. One should also have in mind that Orkney Islands with its settlements in Skara Brae have history that is dated as far back as 5000 years, which is even before the pyramids and would also serve as a indicator that the areas was of great spiritual importance even during the middle ages.

By tracing back the heraldic similarities of the “Gules Chevron or” and “Sparre af Aspenas” coat of arms along with other things, one can make some possible implication that some of the Cross Knights gathered in southern Finland and created a new force of Knights that were involved in many important battles of Europe.

Modern Army Grades

Many of these Coats which seems to have their origins in time of Queen Margaret and the regions of southern Finland, or at least existed in the areas, may also serve as origin to today’s Freemasonic logo and also the grade system seen on uniforms in most western armies.

So why was Roslyn Chapel built? Well, I would draw the conclusion that Roslyn was built to work as a central administration of Freemasonry in Europe. But this could only have been initiated when early Freemasonry had come to understand that this was needed. It’s also possible that it was in the Roslyn chapel were the “Freemasonic religion” was founded – with the “Great Architect” as God – which I will talk more about later in this dossier.

One should also know that Scandinavian Nobility has a title “Friherre”, which is similar to “Baron” in Europe. “Fri” means “Free” and “Herre” means “Master”, which also may act as a link between Scandinavian Nobility and the origins of Freemasonry.

Based on the above, I would say that it’s more than likely that Freemasonry existed a lot earlier than what official information tell. But, then that’s the nature of Freemasonry, so why be surprised?
