Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the Back Cover

Though the author cannot, alas, "lift the veil from the secrets of the Order," 32nd-degree Freemason Charles H. Vail endeavors to lead the curious toward a more complete understanding of the ancient knowledge of the eternal truth of the universe of which the Masons are the keepers.

From the great antiquity of Masonic symbols and traditions to the formation of the organization with their perpetuation as its goal, this 1909 book is an intriguing glimpse inside one of the most secretive fraternities in existence.

It is required reading for those fascinated by arcane wisdom and secret societies.

This book was in the bibliography of Stolen Legacy and I bought it to read the original source material for that work. It was a very interesting perspective from a 32nd degree mason who gave a series of lectures in new york at the turn of the 20th century. In it he describes our modern religion in terms of the symbolic ideas as well as the literal meaning. He analyzes the new testament and the life of Jesus and claims that all religions have connections to secret societies and it is necessary to understand the secrets of these societies to understand religious works and religion from this perspective.
