Western Esotericism and Rituals of Initiation
By Henrik Bogdan


For more than 300 years the practice of Masonic rituals of initiation has been part of Western culture, spreading far beyond the boundaries of traditional Freemasonry. Henrik Bogdan explores the historical development of these rituals and their relationship with Western esotericism. Beginning with the Craft degrees of Freemasonry--the blueprints, as it were, of all later Masonic rituals of initiation--Bogdan examines the development of the Masonic High Degrees, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn--the most influential of all 19th-century occultist initiatory societies--and Gerald Gardner's Witchcraft movement of the 1950s, one of the first large-scale Western esoteric New Religions Movements.

Solomon's Builders:
Freemasons, Founding Fathers and the Secrets of Washington D.C.
By Christopher Hodapp


Solomon's Builders transports the reader back to the birth of a radical new nation and tells how a secretive society influenced and inspired the formation of what would become the most powerful nation on earth. A history that reads like a thriller, it follows George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and the other Founding Fathers who transformed the lessons of their Masonic lodge rooms into models for a new democracy. In the process, it pieces together the still-visible clues of the Freemasons as it uncovers the mystical Masonic symbolism hidden in the design of the city and in its monuments, statues and buildings. From "all-seeing eyes," pentagrams, and Egyptian-inspired obelisks to the imposing and mysterious Masonic temples of the "Widow's Sons," Solomon’s Builders guides readers on a Freemason's tour of Washington, D.C. as it separates fact from myth.

The Key to Solomon's Key:
Secrets of Magic and Masonry
By Lon Milo DuQuette


Sketching out a fascinating network of historic figures, cults, and Christendom, this book by an occult studies expert and respected authority on magic and sorcery takes western spiritual traditions seriously- but examines them with common sense and self-effacing humor. Working backward from the Freemasons to one of their original orders, the 14th-century Knights Templar, the account considers sorcery, heresy, and intrigues; explores the legend that the Knights possessed a powerful secret dangerous to the Church of Rome; and finds an essential clue to the order's practices in their connection to the biblical Solomon, king of Israel in the 10th century B. C.

Forbidden Religion:
Suppressed Heresies of the West
By J. Douglas Kenyon


Following the model of his bestselling Forbidden History, J. Douglas Kenyon has assembled from his bi-monthly journal Atlantis Rising material that explores the hidden path of the religions banned by the orthodox Church--from the time before Christ when the foundations of Christianity were being laid to the tumultuous times of the Cathars and Templars and the Masons of the New World. Revealed in this investigation of the roots of Western faith are the intimate ties of ancient Egyptian religion to Christianity, the true identities of the three magi, the link forged by the Templars between early Christianity and the Masons, and how these hidden religious currents still influence the modern world. This book serves as a compelling introduction to the true history of the heretical religious traditions that played as vital a role in society as the established faiths that continuously tried to suppress them. Born in the same religious ferment that gave birth to Christianity, these spiritual paths survived in the "heresies" of the Middle Ages, and in the theories of the great Renaissance thinkers and their successors, such as Isaac Newton and Giordano Bruno. Brought to the New World by the Masons who inspired the American Revolution, the influence of these forbidden religions can be still found today in "The Star Spangled Banner" and in such Masonic symbols as the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill.

The Brotherhood:
Inside the Secret World of the Freemasons
By Tom Dedopolus


The Freemasons are the world's best-known fraternity. Famous for their secretive nature and impressive roster of historical members, they are often regarded as a sinister force operating behind the scenes. Some dismiss them as a group of old men who dress up to play games and indulge in a convivial dinner. Others believe they are a corrupting network of avid nepotists and political dabblers, pulling society's strings for their own dark ends. This is a long way from the Order's original reputation as a force of enlightenment, social responsibility, and scientific awareness. Behind the rumors, hearsay, and façade of secrecy, Freemasonry resonates with a beautiful tradition of philosophical symbolism. The journey through the degrees of Masonry is the journey through life itself. Written by the grandson of a very high-ranking Mason, The Brotherhood is a fascinating look inside an enigmatic institution. Starting with the visible structure of international Freemasonry and the myths and legends that surround it, the book moves on to examine the true meaning of Freemasonry—its mythological and real history, its social context, and the symbolism and philosophy that illuminates every aspect of the Craft, with a look at the current state of Freemasonry today.

The Secret History Of Freemasonry:
Its Origins And Connection To The Knights Templar
By Paul Naudon


Historians often make a sharp distinction between the operative Masonry of the Middle Ages and the speculative Masonry of modern times, emphasizing that there is no direct bridge connecting the two. Modern historians also have scoffed at Masonic claims concerning the close relationship between the Lodge and the Temple. Using medieval archives housed throughout Europe, historian Paul Naudon reveals that there was in fact a very intimate connection between the Masons and the Knights Templar. Church records of medieval Paris show that most, if not all, the Masons of that time were residents of the Templar censive, which allowed them to enjoy great exemptions and liberties from both church and state as a result of the protection afforded them by this powerful order. Naudon shows that the origins of Freemasonry can be traced back to the collegia of ancient Rome. He traces the evolution of organizations such as the Comacine Masters, the Arab turuqs, and the brotherhoods of builders created under the aegis of the Benedictines and the Knights Templar, all of which provide the vehicle for the transmission of a sacred tradition from pre-Christian times to the modern era. This tradition is the source of Masonic ritual and symbolism, and it provides the missing link in the transformation of the operative Masonry of the medieval cathedral builders to the spiritual principles of modern speculative Masonry.

American Freemasons:
Three Centuries Of Building Communities
By Mark A. Tabbert


Volunteer associations of all varieties form the foundation of American history and culture. By far, the oldest and largest of all American volunteer associations is Freemasonry, but what exactly is Freemasonry? Why have three centuries of American men--from Paul Revere and Ben Franklin to Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, Harry Truman and Thurgood Marshall--been drawn to its rituals, symbols and precepts? And why did John Quincy Adams call it "a seed of evil,which can never produce any good?" Published in conjunction with the National Heritage Museum, this extravagantly illustrated volume offers a brief overview of Freemasonry's origins in 17th-century Scotland and England before exploring its evolving role in American history, from the Revolution through the labor and civil rights movements, and into the 21st century. American Freemasons explores some of the causes for the rise and fall of membership in the fraternity and why it has attracted men in such large numbers for centuries. Tabbert also examines the relationship between the privacy of a Masonic lodge and the public environment of the American community. American Freemasons is the perfect introduction to understanding a society that, while shrouded in mystery, has played an integral role in the lives and communities of millions of Americans.

Custodians Of Truth:
Continuance Of Rex Deus
By Tim Wallace-Murphy, Marilyn Hopkins


The story of the Rex Deus families, direct descendents of Christ--who is believed to have survived the crucifixion--turns out to be much more extensive than the authors first thought. Instead of beginning during the time of Jesus, it stretches far back into antiquity, to the Egyptian Mystery Schools. Instead of being only a propagation of the holy bloodline, the Rex Deus families are also carriers of the secret teachings of Jesus. He was not only a holy man, but an adept of ancient knowledge. This secret knowledge was suppressed by the Church in their voracious quest for power and influence in the secular world. These teachings have manifested throughout history in different forms--Gnostic philosophy around the time of Jesus, the Order of the Knights Templar, Freemasons, and the current resurgence of interest in New Age thought.

Freemasons:
A History and Exploration of the World's Oldest Secret Society
By Christopher Knight, Robert Lomas


Freemasons have been accused of everything from conducting clandestine satanic rituals to masterminding a worldwide conspiracy for planetary domination. The order's members—which have included Sir Isaac Newton, John Wayne, Bill Gates, some of America's most popular entertainers, and 25 U.S. presidents—insist they merely share a bond of brotherhood, service, and charity. It's the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world and even figures prominently in such modern bestsellers as The Da Vinci Code, yet Freemasonry is still terribly and consistently misunderstood. Paul Jeffers delves into Masonic history to reveal the surprising and controversial truths behind this ancient and secretive order, from its mystery-shrouded origins in medieval Europe through its rise in America, where Benjamin Franklin founded the first lodge. Today, some four to five million Freemasons worldwide pledge to live their lives in accordance with principles of morality, charity, and loyalty—both to fellow Masons and to the order itself. But what exactly does Freemasonry entail, and what happens behind the lodges' closed doors? Discover the truth about: * Masonic Symbols—architectural symbolism, rings, pins, and other subtle indicators of membership * Rites and rituals—"Rite of Investiture" initiation ceremonies, the Apron Lecture, the Rite of Destitution and others * Hierarchy and organizational structure—including rules for advancement * Freemasonry's ancient and ongoing conflict with major religious institutions worldwide * Women and Freemasonry—including such groups as Eastern Star, Job's Daughters, and Amaranth * "Anti-Masons"—opposition groups, from the Catholic Church to conspiracy theorists * African-American Masonry—the "Prince Hall" Masonry alumni, which included Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, author Alex Haley, and musician Nat "King" Cole * Myths and conspiracies— Why is a Masonic symbol on American currency? Do Masons really control the world? Now, in this fascinating guide that explores the myths and reality of Freemasonry, the veil of secrecy is finally lifted...

Talisman: Sacred Cities, Secret Faith
By Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval


What the authors have uncovered is a heretical tradition rooted in Hermeticism in Egypt which has, for the past thousand years, been a hidden opponent of the Christian Church. At many of the key turning points in Western history, this tradition bursts out into the open in strange ways. The first Renaissance Pope became fascinated by the Hermetic texts and their haunting desire for a new utopian city and had paintings of pyramids installed on his bedroom celling. The Masonic members of England's Royal Society, who also rebuilt London after the Fire of London, planned to turn it into a symbolic capital of this secret tradition; Louise XI specifically set out to make himself out to be the Sun King and to refashion the design of Paris to mimic Egyptian temples. The Founding Fathers, almost all Freemasons, left signs of this secret agenda in their architectural plans of Washington, D.C., and in the symbols of the new republic (e.g. the Masonic symbols on the dollar bill). It is impossible to avoid the symbolic challenge of the Washington Memorial and the new glass pyramid in the Louvre (the culmination of centuries of surrepetitious architectural manipulation of the city plan of Paris).

The Merovingian Mythos and the Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau
By Tracy R. Twyman


Occult expert & historian Tracy R. Twyman has been investigating the Holy Grail and Rennes-le-Chateau, and has written extensively about it in Dagobert's Revenge Magazine. She discovered that the bloodline of the Merovingians stems not only from Christ and Mary Magdalene, but goes back to the god-kings of the antediluvian world. She has determined the nature of the physical object called "the Holy Grail" - a magnificent structure hidden beneath Rennes-le-Chateau. Within this structure is the greatest treasure of human history: the grave of a sacred king named Cain, who brought the wisdom of the gods down from Heaven. The Grail has inspired secret societies and the destiny of humanity. Twyman deciphers clues left by the Priory of Sion, the Knights Templar, and the Freemasons, found in history, mythology, scriptures, and the traditions of the occult, resulting in a reinterpretation of the story of civilization.

Freemasonry in Context:
History, Ritual, Controversy
By Arturo de Hoyos, S. Brent Morris


Freemasonry has had a long, enduring, and yet at times largely invisible influence on American culture and society. The decreased visibility of Freemasonry has to do, directly, with their being very little scholarly resources on the subject. In the history of the United States, reaction to Freemasonry led to America's first "third party," the Anti-Masonic Party. Much of America's social safety net, from the Civil War to the Second World War, was provided by the orphanages, retirement homes, and insurance programs of Freemasonry. Freemasonry has also influenced the development of other fellowships: Knights of Pythias, Elks, Moose, Woodmen of the World, and Knights of Columbus to name a few. At its peak, in 1960, Freemasonry claimed 4.2 million members; one out of every twenty males in the United States. The editors feature work by renown Masonic scholars. Essays explore the rich and often times controversial events that comprise the cultural and social history of Freemasonry. Other essays discuss the function and development of ritual rites and practices. All of the scholarship in this volume represents ten years of scholarly investigations of the Scottish Rite Research Society. This is the most authoritative compendium of Masonic scholarship available. Contained within this volume is the most erudite scholarly reflection on an enormous body of research conducted by academic historians and Masonic authors.

Bristol Masonic Ritual:
The Oldest and Most Unique Craft Ritual Used in England
By Charles E. Cohoughlyn-Burroughs


Bristol Masonry is unlike anything seen elsewhere in England. In the first degree alone one witnesses unusual ceremonies and hears statements which will surprise even the well-read Mason. Have you ever heard "the Nile, the Ganges, the Euphrates, [and the] Mississippi" mentioned in an Entered Apprentice degree? How about "the immeasurable wilds of the scattered Indian tribes across the mighty Atlantic... the wandering Arabs, roaming tartars, or far distant Chinese"? Have you ever seen the "circle of swords," the "cup of affliction" or the "writing test" given to an Entered Apprentice? It is all here, and much more. As one of the most unusual rituals in the English language, Masons travel from all over the world to witness these fascinating ceremonies. Boasting what is probably the oldest Craft working in England, Bristol ritual retains aspects which are similar to the unpublished Irish workings, but also resembles Continental Masonry in some regards. Official or no, most English and Scottish rituals are available through booksellers, but copies of the Bristol ritual difficult to come by, as the ritual has previously only been circulated in manuscript and typescript. By this is meant that the ritual manuscript is divided into sections containing the parts of individual officers, few Brethren having a complete copy of the text. This book collates, for the first time, the entire ritual.

The Secret Symbols of the Dollar Bill
By David Ovason


Elements of the dollar's complex graphic design date back to the Founding Fathers, and most of us are unaware of its deeper meanings. Now an expert on arcane symbolism uncovers the fascinating secret meanings behind the design of the money we use every day. David Ovason explores the visual complexity and magic behind the world's most influential currency. Ovason contends that some of the Great Seal's symbols represent the principles of the young republic and that their origins were obscured over time. The dollar bill was more than just currency for our country, it was structured in such a way to demonstrate the nation's place in the world and the classical roots of its fight for freedom. The book invites readers to take up a dollar bill and set off on a visual adventure. Readers will encounter dazzling explanations of the dollar bill's secret contents, from the symbols derived from the Great Seal through the extraordinary strands of numerology interwoven into its structure to surprising hidden alignments. David Ovason is a recognized authority in the field of arcane symbolism. His research into the dollar bill reveals hidden biblical and classical references, as well as symbols derived from such societies as the Rosicrucians and Freemasons, both of which engage in esoteric thought. So reach into your wallet and prepare for a history lesson unlike any other.

Material Culture of the American Freemasons
By Scottish Rite Masonic Museum of Our National Heritage


A catalogue of Masonic artifacts and a history of their ownership. Freemasonry traces its origins and ceremonies to the ancient stonemasons guilds of 14th-century England. While the brotherhood's emphasis shifted from craftsmanship to philosophical and moral issues, many of the rituals and symbols remained, eventually immigrating with American colonists. In pictures and in words, Material Culture of the American Freemasons provides detailed descriptions of the extensive collection of artifacts at the Museum of Our National Heritage in Lexington, Massachusetts. From the ornate carvings of a Master's chair to the intricate embroidery of the traditional apron to engraved jewels, a rich Masonic heritage of rules, rituals, and regalia is recorded here in nearly three centuries of artifacts. The catalog contains a treasury of paintings, engravings, books and certificates, furniture, tableware, tools, clothing, and other paraphenalia. Though bounded by respect for the confidentiality of this secret society, the author explains its practices and heritage in terms accessible to the uninitiated.

The Blazing Star and the Jewish Kabbalah
By William B. Greene, R.A. Gilbert


Studies of the Kabbalah in English were virtually unknown before the "occult revival" of the second half of the 19th century, and those that did appear were largely dry and academic. The more astute students of the Kabbalah recognized that it had an application outside Judeo-Christian mysticism and related it to the wider current of the Western Mystery Tradition, especially to Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry. A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, William Greene was unique among his fellow Christian writers on the Kabbalah in that he saw clearly both its significance for Freemasonry and its application to radical thought. He prefaced his study, first published in 1872, with a stirring account of the significant Masonic symbol of the Blazing Star --a symbol also of liberty of conscience and political freedom, goals that we must seek in both the spiritual and material worlds.

The Invisible College:
Freemasonry & the Birth of Modern Science
By Robert Lomas


Continues the Freemasonry saga by exploring its roots in The Royal Society, a group dedicated to the pursuit of scientific study. In a time when superstition and magic governed reason, the repressive dogma of Christian belief silenced many, and where a turbulent political and economical background dominated, these men forbade any discussion of religion at their meetings. Lomas claims that modern experimental science was born out of The Royal Society, which was secretly funded by The Invisible College, which is known today as Freemasonry.

Jasper Ridley offers a welcome antidote to these half-witted tomes with a sober-minded account of a secret society that has survived for centuries. Most important, he provides the one thing missing from many discussions of the masons: facts. For a level- headed account of how a medieval guild of stone masons developed over time into an offbeat social organization with a powerful membership, Ridley's book is tough to beat.
