Abstract:

Shake-speare’s Sonnets, published in 1609. Assuming that “William Shakespeare” was a pseudonym, the actual author may have been Sir Francis Bacon or Edward De Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, both of whom were Rosicrucians and cryptographers. The “initials” under the triangular shapes of the dedication are not those widely presumed to be “T.T.” for Thomas Thorpe, the publisher, but a pair of Greek gammas representing the Masonic symbol “G” and the Pillars of Solomon’s Temple. Encrypted names and mottos in the twenty-eight-word dedication indicate that the sonnets are dedicated to Henry Wriothesley, Third Earl of Southampton. Evidence in the Dedication implies that Henry was the natural son of Edward De Vere, who kept their relationship secret to protect Henry’s privacy and possibly his life, if his enemies suspected he had a claim to the throne of England.___________________________________________________________________________
