Have you ever wondered why 007 is James Bond’s numerical designation? Or where the name “Luke Skywalker” comes from? How about all those giant faces that pass judgment on General Zod and his lieutenants at the beginning of 1978’s Superman? What’s behind the symbolism of all those mirrors in Black Swan? Cinema Symbolism: A Guide to Esoteric Imagery in Popular Movies answers these questions; it is about occult, numerological, astrological, mythological, alchemical, Tarot, and kabbalistic iconography and symbolism contained within popular movies. Films analyzed include The Exorcist, Back to the Future, Star Wars (Episodes I-VI), The Lord of the Rings, The Wizard of Oz, Black Swan, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the James Bond movies and The Matrix among many others.

The result of over twenty years of research, Robert Sullivan’s The Royal Arch of Enoch presents a real life “Da Vinci Code/National Treasure” mystery which, until the publication of this book, was previously unknown to history and historians in both the East and West.
“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” – Genesis 5:24. The Royal Arch of Enoch: The Impact of Masonic Ritual, Philosophy, and Symbolism documents an undiscovered historical anomaly: how a high degree Masonic Ritual – developed in France in the mid 1700s – included elements of the Book of Enoch (a/k/a I Enoch) which was considered lost until Freemason and traveler James Bruce returned to Europe with copies from Ethiopia in 1773. These copies were not translated into English until 1821 at Oxford University. This high degree ritual – titled The Royal Arch of Enoch – documents the recovery of the “Lost Word of a Master Mason”, the Name of God.
It is this ritual in particular that has defined, among other things, the American national character. The Royal Arch of Enoch also documents the symbolic restoration of the sun as the premier icon in all of Freemasonry and as the supreme emblem of imperial administration and religiosity lifted from the Ancient Mysteries, incorporated in the Abrahamic faiths, and carried on in both Blue Lodge and High Degree Masonry.
