The Clavicles of Solomon is also known as The Key of Solomon, and no, Freemasonry doesn't use it.

When i was 16 i came across a book that my mother brought to me(from a five & dime store) it was a small book about 150 pages ,hand writtencall The Clavicles of Solomon.I read it all and it was full of names of angels and cicles of moon,names of gods and tools, incantations,pentagrams.Is there a relation here between freemasonry and this book since it's about Solomon ? There's a website now of this book but there are pages missing,i know it cos i remember the book... It's ok if you dont want to answer.

Nobody seems to know for certain, but the most likely answer is at least 300 years ago for some of it...

Could any Freemason tell me when these curious ceremonies of initiation and advancement were first introduced, or have they always been a feature?

In Hebrew, the phrase “the Stone which the Builders refused” is Ehben Masu Ha-Bonaim (ABN MASV H BVNIM). An interesting connection to Alchemy occurs here, in that the reference to a rejected stone recalls the idea of the Philosopher’s Stone, made up of materials that are commonly rejected or abhorred, but praised as the roots of philosophical gold by the alchemists. The root of the Hebrew masu means “to despise, reject, refuse.” Using the techniques of gemaria, the numeration of the entire phrase is 273.
Other Hebrew words which have this same numerical value:
ChVRM ABIV, Khurum Abiv – “Hiram Abiff”
AVR GNVZ, Aur Ganuz, -- “hidden light”
Qabalistically then, one may intuit a connection between the Widow’s Son, the Stone which the Builders refused, and the concept of Hidden or Concealed Light. The cornerstone takes on a new, profound meaning with these added levels of symbolism encoded into it.
The Substitute for the Ancient Master’s Word may be a notariqon of this phrase:
ABN MASV H BVNIM
Thus, the word becomes indicative of the Light of Masonry in a very direct sense, referring to Hiram Abiff, the Cornerstone of the Temple, the Hidden Light. The symbols build upon one another, each taking one deeper into the heart of the matter.
Looking to the Greek language, there are two words of particular relevance that also enumerate to 273:
Anthanasia, “immortality.” Perhaps a further reference to the doctrine of the Third Degree.
Heh Kleis, “the key.”
IT IS A CLUT! PERIOD! Anyone involved with the kabbalah=cult!
