Default from the telegraph

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/b...-Millwall.html


Meanwhile, however, he never loses sight for long of "strangeness and savagery" or "mystical excess". He is particularly impressed by the mystical beliefs supposedly espoused by Wren and others responsible for the rebuilding of London after the Great Fire. I leave it to others to judge how much truth there is in his contention that, in siting his churches, Nicholas Hawksmoor was guided by calculations - measured in cubits - which ultimately derived from the sacred mysteries of the Kabbalah.
But at least there can be no doubt that Glinert himself sets great store by what he calls "esoteric measurements". He discerns their influence in the location of Jack the Ripper's killings, and in a crime committed as recently as 1974: the murder of the owner of a tobacco kiosk in Commercial Road called Alfie Cohen. He also argues, just for good measure, that the Ripper killings and the Cohen murder were linked by traces of Masonic ritual.

Krinoid,

You need some quotation marks in there to indicate you are "borrowing" verbatim from the Telegraph review.

Don.

Ed Glinert's book was very much written with a wry sense of humour, a refreshing take on what can often be a subject that is treated too dryly (I loved it).

The stuff about the alignments of churches etc. is an obvious nod to psychogeography. The links between the JTR murders and psychogeography were pioneered by writers like Iain Sinclair and Peter Ackroyd.

I don't have the Glinert book to hand and it was a long while ago that I read it, so I can't go back over it to gauge if he is taking the mickey or not. It is quite possible though...

The "star of david" quote from Glinert can be taken eitheir way as far as that goes but the rest of the cubits business and links to the ripper he appears to be serious about.
I don't know why he didn't test the theory before printed as others here on here said it was wrong(septic blue), even the cubits part. The one part I disagree with people on here was when posters on here said no one in the ripper's time was interested in this subject and yet Warren wrote a book on it!

Good evening Krinoid,

Glinert, in his ripper section built on the book by Stephen Knight Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution.

Warren was a Freemason. And yes, so was Wren. And Nicholas Hawksmoor, whose imposing Christ Church Spitalfields, nearby the tragedy at Millers Court, lends an almost surreal backdrop to the murder on Lord Mayors Day. Hawksmoor also built St Mary's Woolnoth, traditionally the Lord Mayor's church. But that's history. The fact that Freemasons built churches and laid out squares, and one later served as police commissioner shows they were in important positions in history. Such as Winston Churchill.

You do know the late Mr. Knight's theory was gone over with a fine tooth comb and, found lacking. So to add onto Knight with the cubits and triangles is, well, I don't know the word I'm looking for. It has entertainment value, building on the eye catching connections, the Queen Anne churches and squares, the royal family. It's entertainment to me. A history lark. I sometimes wish I had the creative mind to dream up things like that. Look what Dan Brown has done with The Da Vinci Code.

Roy

I actually tried to contact Ed on Facebook but he has refused all contact, I guess he does not want to talk about his theories.

It's not actually true that no one like the Ripper would be interested in the murder sites and its history, apparently the Ratcliff murders (the first one) was done on the site of the original proposal of Hawksmoor placement of the St George in the east site!

Hi Krinoid. No one has ever, to my knowledge, tried to contact me via Facebook about the Ripper! As for not wanting to talk about my theories, most people would say I don't know when to shut up. More than happy to discuss them - and still waiting to be invited to host a Ripper meeting at the Archers!

I talked to Ed last week and he did not realize I tried to email him on FB back then as it went to his filtered mail. He stands by his theories he told me, so all the bashing I received that I missed the irony in his posts was again WRONG STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH! More insults and rudeness from the arrogant idiots on here that attacked me for being stupid.
