About the Author

Manley P. Hall (1901-1990), widely regarded as a sage and teacher steeped in the wisdom of antiquity, was one of the leading esoteric scholars of the twentieth century. The author of the landmark work The Secret Teachings of All Ages, Hall was named a 33° Mason in 1973. It is the highest rank Freemasonry can bestow.

More About the Author

Manly P. Hall (1901-1990) founded the Philosophical Research Society in 1934, a non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination of useful knowledge in the fields of philosophy, comparative religion and psychology. In his long career, spanning more than 70 years of dynamic public activity, Mr. Hall delivered over 8000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.

Many of Mr. Hall's lectures have been transcribed and are available as pamphlets; others were taped live, and the audio recordings are available on CD's as well. He is perhaps best known for his 1928 classic, "The Secret Teachings of All Ages," an encyclopedia of the world's wisdom traditions and symbolic disciplines.

Today, younger generations are re-discovering the works and words of Manly Hall, finding that the material he put forth so many years ago is still relevant and useful today. Mr. Hall's hope for humanity was to learn from the greatest minds of all times so that we may solve current problems - both in society and in the individual - today.

Once you read this book, you will see the world differently.

Much insight and history concerning the Ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools and how they are relevant still today is captured beautifully throughout the book.
J. Mardin
I only read the first few chapters of this book and I liked what I read so far.

Although this book is almost 90 years old it is vastly superior to masonic overview books printed in the last 20 years. It is a wealth of information to the casual reader, mason or student of esoteric wisdom. Hall was a mason after the book was written, had it been otherwise he would not have revealed so much.

Have you ever noticed the strange symbols on the back of the US dollar bill? Have you wondered about the origins of those symbols and how our Founding Fathers ever came up with them? You are looking at symbols related to the ancient Fraternity of Freemasonry. Many of the Founders of our Constitution were members of that mysterious order. If you have ever wondered about that secret society, now is your chance to find out. The three works published together for the first time in this volume will push aside the veil of the inner temple and lead you into its mysteries.
Freemasonry is a spiritual philosophy with its roots in antiquity. These roots are rumored to extend back to the Ancient Egyptians who were the builders of the pyramids and the sacred temples at Thebes and Luxor. It is about the spiritual journey of the soul and the effort to defeat the negative influences that seek to overcome it and release the magnificence of the soul's true splendor. The philosophy is about the spiritual journey and, yet, is attached to no specific religion. Masonic Orders have been comprised of members of all faiths.
As you step into this book, you become the Initiate who is led through many trials to attain the various levels of self-knowledge and ultimately, enlightenment and the true knowledge of his own Divine nature. The journey is fraught with perils both of the Master's devising and those of the Initiate's own shortcomings.
Once you read this book, you will see the world differently. Hidden symbols that you barely noticed before will leap out at you alive with meaning. This book will reveal a world of mystery surrounding you that you never saw before.

Manly P. Hall is an amazing author. He is a 33 degree Freemason and he takes you through the basis of the 3 degrees and in depth of the philosophy of Egypt. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in philosophy and Egypt.

I have several of Manly P Halls books , which I consider a privilege to have in my possession. Manley P Hall is a very underestimated writer who has not received the acclaim that he so diligently deserves, this book is a very informative addition to own. it goes into the ROOTS of masonry, in explicit Hall style format. a great read!

This book is a must read for all Freemasons! Manly P. Hall has pieced together the essence and history of the craft in a very intelligent and esoteric fashion, which gives the initiated much insight into the deeper symbolism and origins behind the rituals performed in the Blue Lodge. Much insight and history concerning the Ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools and how they are relevant still today is captured beautifully throughout the book. The general history behind the fraternities and how it was all culminated by the founders of the craft of Freemasonry and similar societies is brilliantly defined in a very logical and well structured format. Priceless knowledge for a small sum of money.

I don't think you can go wrong with Brother Manly P. Hall. This is a wonderful read. Hall is a controversial writer, but many find him such because they are intimidated by his writing style. I enjoyed this book very much, which is more a compilation of short books contained into one medium sized one.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is great there is no doubt about that, it is somewhat of a classic as the cover suggests and the literary prowess of Manly P. Hall is unquestionable. But why do I give it a 4 out of 5? Well I bought this book specifically for speculative research into Freemasonry, I do not trust or expect a local lodge to give me the "Grand Tour" (which they probably would have called it if they had one). People need to learn the historical side of Freemasonry from historians like 'Born in Blood: The Lost Secrets of Freemasonry' by John J. Robinson who gives a brilliantly simple and very interesting account about the origins of the group and how the are involved with the Templars, Hall solidifies this through the esoteric teachings of Masonry and the Templars, and of course the various other Mystery Schools like such in Egypt. But my problem with this book is that it is quite a trek to read and keep in mind I'm not complaining about the 'literary prowess' aforementioned but if you are not a Mason and you do not want to apply these things in your life it becomes challenging to keep going through and not get distracted by going off on some random train-of-thought about how this is really unreasonable garbage, in the end the only thing keeping me reading this book is the historical significance and the drive to crush ignorance. WARNING: Do not read if you are a beginner in Freemasonry Studies or occult at that, also if you are a Christian this book is promoting Lucifer-worship, no not human sacrifice or any of that, as proof this book is riddled with praises of Light, the Great Architect and I quote from page 51 "The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands [referring to the Fellow Craft degree initiate] and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy." If you are not new to these things and do have some sort of peace of mind (who does?) and a calm will to learn THEN read this book.
