The work attempts to uncover the lost mysteries of Freemasonry and their ties to astrology, Melville stating his thesis in the introduction: "...I became more and more convinced that the foundation of all intellectual religions, ancient as well as modern, had but one and the same origin, and that origin was heavenly or celestial."
