Mauritania / History

 
The Guelb er-Richat, of the gigantic meteor.          Oasis of Rashid.          The Passe d'Amogjar, on the route to Atar. 


Pre-History

5000 BCE:

The oldest traces of settlement in Mauritania. The people were blacks, and forming hunter-gatherer communities and. Around this time, Mauritania was mainly grassland.

Middle 3rd millennium BCE: Climatic changes in the region, leading to a much dryer climate.

The Sanhaja

3rd century CE: Berbers of the Sanhaja confederation moves into Mauritania. Over the following centuries, the Berbers became the leaders of trade in Mauritania, controlling trade routes between Koumbi Saleh, Aoudaghoust and Timbuctu (today's Mali). The most important goods were slaves, gold, ivory, copper and salt.

Before 8th century: The kingdom of Ghana is established in modern Senegal, Mali and southeastern Mauritania. The capital was in Koumbi Saleh in today's Mauritania.

990: Ghana attacks and takes control over Aoudaghost.

The Almoravids

1039: Ahdallah Abdallah bni Yasin, the founder of the Almoravids, declares holy war against the Sanhaja berbers, who he considered as "heathen".

1054: The Almoravids have succeeded in taking full control over the Sanhaja. Their weak Sanhaja confederation had been replaced by a theocratic empire.

1076: Together with the Almoravids, the Sanhaja berbers razes Koumbi Saleh.
Still Ghana survives for some 150 years more.

Middle of 13th century: Nomads of Arab origin, especially the Beni Hassan tribe, move into Mauritania. This brought on a number of conflicts between the immigrants and original population. This conflict lasted for about 400 years, with numerous wars and clashes.

1445: Portuguese traders set up a trading base on Arguin Island in northern Mauritania. This is the regions first contact with Europeans. The main trading product is acacia tree gum.

15th century: Northern Mauritania is conquered by the Beni Hassan Arabs. With this a process of Arabization starts, and Berber language and identity is eventually replaced.

1677: The final battle between the Arabs and the Berbers, makes the Arabs victors. From this time on, the social status inside the Mauritanian society has been established, with Arabs on top, Berbers in the middle (divided into 2 groups: religious scholars called zawiyas and farmers and herders called znaga, and the blacks on the bottom (also divided into 2 groups: former slaves called haratani and slaves, abid.

French influence

17th century: French, English and Dutch traders install themselves in Mauritania. They all fight for control over the gum trade, while the Portuguese were losing their influence. For France, soon the slave trade also became very important. For the Mauritanians the slave trade soon developed into a very important source of income, as they sold black slaves to the French in exchange for firearms, cloth and sugar.

1727: The Dutch traders pull out of Mauritania.

18th century: Mauritania gets divided into several emirates, Trarza, Brakna, Adrar and Tagant, which all were isolated from each other.

19th century: Civil war breaks out between the emirates, with France playing an important part in strengthening tensions.

1814: With the Treaty of Paris, France gets territorial rights over Mauritania `“ this was an agreement with other European states, nobody asked the Mauritanians.

1820: Official end of commercial slavery.

1857: In an agreement between France and Britain, British traders pull out, and install themselves in Gambia. This leaves Mauritania in the hands of the French.

1860's: The French governor Louis Faidherbe creates the first comprehensive map of northern Mauritania.

1899: A process of pacification over Mauritania starts, and is administered by Xavier Coppolani. He cooperates with Berber groups to split Arab leaders. The importance of Mauritania, and the need for pacification, was only indirect `” as a link between French interests in Morocco (north) and Senegal (south).


There is much more.... http://looklex.com/e.o/mauritania.history.htm ~

Their famous stamp comes to mind:

"At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is "not done".
...Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with.

Sorry, guys I am getting carried away here. It's fun though and interesting how easily one thing leads to another....

The Canon

 

An Exposition of the Pagan Mystery Perpetuated in the Cabala As the Rule of All the Arts
by William Stirling - Contempt of ancient learning is a sure sign of an enlightened mind.

Excerpt: We are the men.

Before our time, reason but little influenced mankind.

The demonstration of the above assertion being that in times gone by there were no railways, steamboats, torpedoes, or any of those anesthetic inventions in regard to time and space on which we pride ourselves, and upon which we base our claim to have advanced the general welfare of mankind.

Marvels of science, mechanical improvements, increase of wealth (and income tax), and the perfection of all warlike apparatus, seem to blind us to the fact that abstract qualities of mind have shown no symptoms of progression. A rich barbarian, pale and dyspeptic, florid or flatulent, seated in a machine traveling at eighty miles an hour, with the machine luxuriously upholstered and well heated, and yet the traveler's mind a blank, or only occupied with schemes to cheat his fellows and advance himself is, in the abstract, no advance upon a citizen of Athens, in the time of Pericles, who never traveled faster than a bullock cart could take him, in all his life.

Science has no marvels; every so-called discovery heralded as marvelous (for men of science understand the power of bold advertisement to the full as well as scientists in clog dancing, in hair dressing, and tightrope walking), is not a marvel in the true meaning of the word.

The Röntgen Rays, the microphone, the phonograph, are all as simple in themselves as is the property of amber rubbed to take up straws. From the beginning there have been Roentgen Rays, and the principles of microphone and phonograph are coeval with the world. The wonder lies not in the discovery (so-called), but in the fact they have remained so long unknown. The real mystery of mysteries is the mind of man. Why, with a pen or brush, one man sits down and makes a masterpiece, and yet another, with the selfsame instruments and opportunities, turns out a daub or botch, is twenty times more curious than all the musings of the mystics, works of the Rosicrucian, or the mechanical contrivances which seem to-day so fine, and which our children will disdain as clumsy. The conquests of the mind never grow stale, let he who doubts it read a page of Plato and compare it with some à la mode philosopher. I take it that one of the objects of the author of this work is to sustain, that in astronomy, in mathematics, and in certain other branches of learning, the ancients knew a good deal more than modern men of science care to admit.

Knowledge to-day is not diffused, as writers in newspapers, makers of almanacks, members of school-boards, and worthy men who see the means but cannot grasp the fullness of achievement, are never tired of stating, but on the contrary, goes almost contraband. The fact that all can read and write, cipher and scan the columns of a newspaper, can tell the latitude (the longitude more rarely) of Jella Coffee, can prattle innocently of literature, art, spiritualism, and chemistry, can make their pertinent remarks upon theosophy, discuss religion, say a word in season on lithotomy, and generally comport themselves as if their minds were fashioned after the pattern of a kaleidoscope, does not go far to prove the claim of wide extended knowledge.

Interesting, why then do they refer to him as the first Grand Master?

"They" who?

   "Every Master was the "widows son." He was the continuation of the Master-line that had apparently been broken with the death of the first Grand Master, Hiram Abiff."

Robinson is incorrect?

Robinson did not know, he was speculating.  After he was initiated, he would not be allowed to correct his error.  There was no "break" in "the line" of Masters, but Robinson would not have known that before he was initiated into The Lodge, and would not be able to disclose anything he learned after being initiated.

Note the word "apparently" in your quote.

Hiram of Tyre is mentioned in the Hebrew Scripture at 1st Kings 7:13-14.  As far as anyone outside The Lodge knows, he was the first Master Craft to be mentioned in Scripture as a Master.  That does not make him "the first Grand Master."  He may have been the first Master Mason murdered by the Israelis while working for them and under their protection, which would make him significant in the history of The Lodge and Israel.  But he was not "the first Grand Master."
