The DEITY (capital D) – Supreme Being
One of the pre-requisites that must be satisfied by a prospective candidate in order to become initiated into the “mysteries and privileges” of freemasonry is to declare belief in a Supreme Being.
The Book of Constitutions makes this requirement quite clear.

The DOMESDAY BOOK – England Census AD1086
The origin of the name by which it is universally known. “Domesday Book” is clearly no official title; it is a popular appellation, of which the meaning is not quite free from doubt.
Officially, the record was known as the “Book of Winchester,” from the city in which it was kept; it was cited under that name when the abbot of Abingdon, in the reign of Henry I., proved by it the exemption of certain of his estates from the hundred court of Pyrton, Oxfordshire.
The best explanation of its other, more famous name may be given in the words of Richard Fitz Neal, writing under Henry II.:
“This book is called by the natives, ‘DOMESDEI,’ that is by a metaphor the day of judgment, for as the sentence of that strict and terrible last scrutiny may by no craft be evaded, so when a dispute arises concerning those matters which are written in this book, it is consulted, and its sentence may not be impugned nor refused with safety.” [Dialogus de Saccario (ed. 1902), p. 108.]
DOMES DAY – the DEI of the DOME.
ANNO DOMINI – the YEAR of the DOME.

The Dome of the Rock – Jerusalem
The Dome of the Rock is an Islamic shrine located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem.
Temple Mount has been venerated as a Holy site in Judaism, Christianity and Islam for thousands of years.
The First Temple was built by King Solomon in 957 BC.
The Western or Wailing Wall, is a portion of ancient limestone wall in the Old City of Jerusalem that forms part of the larger retaining wall of the hill known to Jews and Christians as the Temple Mount.
The Wailing Wall plays an important role in Judaism due to its proximity to the Temple Mount. Because of the Temple Mount entry restrictions, the Wall is the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray outside the previous Temple Mount platform, as the site of the Holy of Holies, the most sacred site in the Jewish faith, lies just behind it.
