“On the west wall of the lodge hall used by Lodge Scoon and Perth No. 3 in Perth, Scotland can be found a mural depicting James VI kneeling at their altar at his initiation. The oldest existing record of the Lodge, called “The Mutual Agreement” of 24 December, 1658, records that James was “entered freemason and Fellowcraft of the Lodge of Scoon” on 15 April, 1601.”- http://freemasonry.bcy.ca/biography/james_vi/james_vi.html
Francis Bacon was made editor of King James Bible.
“The first edition of the King James Bible, which was edited by Francis Bacon and prepared under Masonic supervision, bears more Mason’s marks than the Cathedral of Strasburg.”-Manly P. Hall, from a lecture Rosicrucian and Masonic Origins 1929
“A descendant of Robert Bruce, the Catholic James Stuart VI, reigned in Scotland from 1567 until he ascended the British throne as James I in 1603. He succeeded the unmarried Elizabeth I (r. 1558-1603), who enforced Protestantism by law, but who, because of her lack of an heir, designated James her successor on her deathbed. During James I’s reign (1603-1625) we received the King James Version of the Bible, the first official English translation of the Bible.” – Scarlet and the Beast” by John Daniel
