Editorial Reviews


"A scholarly work, it is easily read but fully documented with an exhaustive index, huge bibliography, and complete footnotes. Don’t miss this one for sure!"
(Ed King, Grand Librarian Grand Lodge of Maine 2014-04-23)

From the Inside Flap

"In David Hackett’s deeply researched and compellingly written study, the Masons step directly into American religious history. Hackett presents Freemasonry as a bricolage of Enlightenment pretensions, Romanticism dreams, Christian inheritances, fragments of “ancient” wisdom, and Native American lore. It is a surprisingly multicultural story, and in Hackett's telling, Freemasonry helped create the modern American public sphere by offering a forum for collective action and male solidarity. That Religion in Which All Men Agree is religious history on a grand scale." —Robert Orsi, Grace Craddock Nagle Chair in Catholic Studies and Professor of Religious Studies and History at Northwestern University

"There are many studies of Freemasonry, but none like this one. Combining original research with a “big picture” synthetic story about the history of Freemasonry, That Religion in Which All Men Agree is a valuable and useful work of scholarship." —Paul Harvey, co-author of The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America

"Professor Hackett examines Freemasonry as a radically tolerant power uniting European Americans and enabling men of different backgrounds—African American, Native American, Jewish, and Catholic—to integrate into the larger American society. He demonstrates how Freemasonry was used to conciliate true friendship among those who might otherwise have remained at a perpetual distance and clearly establishes the Fraternity as a robust and complex force in the evolution of American society." —S. Brent Morris, Past Master, Quatuor Coronati Lodge No. 2076, London
