The Invisible College is a fascinating account of the turbulent political, economic and religious background to the formation of Britain's Royal Society. It is set in an era of war against the Dutch, the Great Plague and the Great Fire of London. In particular, it reveals the hidden motives of one man, Sir Robert Moray, who built on his experience with another organization to structure and obtain finance for the Royal Society. The other organization, the "invisible college" as Robert Boyle called it, is known today by the name of Freemasonry. Robert Lomas will make you reassess many of the key events of this period and will show how Freemasonry, supported by Charles II, was the guiding force behind the birth of modern science, under the cover of the Royal Society.
