A belief that the ancients held unusual scientific knowledge, of which only fragments remain today, was held by many great philosophers and scientists who participated in the "scientific revolution." Though research by these men led to great discovery, many were convinced that they were merely scratching the surface of an immense but lost pristine knowledge (prisca sapientia) reflected in the architecture and remains of ancient civilizations. Many have investigated whether Newton believed that this original pure knowledge existed. Some conclude that he did in fact search for it. For the first time in history, in Temple at the Center of Time, David Flynn uncovers what Newton was looking for, and, in so doing, proves that pivotal events in history are unquestionably connected in time and space to the Temple of Jerusalem.
