Curl, James Stevens. The Art and Architecture of Freemasonry: An Introductory Study. Overlook Press, 1993. 272p. Book News  said, “This fascinating study details the Masonic society’s influence on the modern American and European aesthetic world. Although Masonry dates from the Middle Ages, its influence in art and architecture reached its peak in the neoclassical architecture of the 18th century. Architectural history professor Curl (Leicester Polytechnic, England) also looks at the way Masonic ideas have permeated other art forms from literature to the performing arts. The 190 exceptional illustrations (including 11 color plates) are accompanied by detailed, informative captions, and a glossary of terms explains the complex ideas and iconography of Freemasonry.”
Dafoe, Stephen. Unholy Worship? The Myth of the Baphomet, Templar, Freemason Connection. Templar Books, 1998. 84p. Amazon.com description said, “The Knights Templar were a monastic fighting order formed in 1118 CE to protect pilgrims on route to the Holy Lands. In less than two centuries they grew to become the most feared and respected of the crusading orders. Powerful enough to answer only to the Pope, rich enough to finance kings, the Templars soon became the object of one man’s greed and jealousy. Envious of their power and wealth, King Philip IV sought to destroy the Templar Knights. In order to do this he would need to trump up charges of heresy, black magic and witchcraft. These accusations included the worshipping of a demonic idol called Baphomet. The Baphomet Mythos has survived for over six centuries and has been used as a symbol of Satanism as well as a tool of Fundamentalist Christian groups to attack the Masonic Fraternity. This book looks at the myth of these connections and seeks to set the record straight.” The estoric use of Baphomet is an excellent example of how anti-Masons have maligned by taking something small and distorting it out of this world, and thanks to Dafoe for his passion in bringing this to light. — ed.

Faggionato, Raffaela. A Rosicrucian Utopia in Eighteenth-Century Russia: The Masonic Circle of N. I. Novikov. Springer, 2005. 314p. A history of Russian Freemasonry, with her premise being that the Russian Enlightenment peculiar features including Freemasonry, the Novikov circle, the “programme” of Rosicrucianism, and the clash between Rosicrucianism and the state. She concludes that the defenders of the Ancien Régime were not wrong. In fact the democratic behavior, the critical attitude, the practice of participation, the freedom of thought, the tolerance for the diversity, the search for a direct communication with the divinity, in short all the attitudes and behaviors first practiced inside the 18th century lodges constituted a cultural experience which spread throughout the entire society. And so Novikov’s imprisonment in 1792 and the war against the Rosicrucian literature were attempts to thwart a culture and an independence of thought.

Recognizing that the symbolism and ritual employed by Masonry was for the most part both traditional and esoteric, he labored to discover, define, or create a Freemasonic initiation that would be compatible with Catholic Christianity, as it supposedly was when the Masonic guilds designed and built the great cathedrals of Europe.

Hall, Manly Palmer. He is not an authority on Freemasonry and more of a Universalist. He is one prime example of a man applying Freemasonry to his own personal faith, whatever that particular faith of Hall’s might be. Hall has done more mightily extraordinary research on the occult and secret religious rituals, more than anyone (it seems) in the history of humanity. He appears fixated upon the occult and mastery of everything religiously arcane, much like Robert Leroy Ripley became upon strange human oddities in his Ripley’s Believe or Not fame and franchises. The following pertain to Freemasonry and a couple of his other works. It is regrettable that some Christian anti-Masons, mostly, have latched onto Hall without even noticing his obsession with the philosophy of the occult. — See www.preciousheart.net/freemasonry/Hall_Bib.htm for bibliography of 91 other works. — Alchemy, Comprehensive Bibliography of the Manly P.

And here the cry gained a concrete significance vastly greater than ever imagined…. In Hitler’s hands the slogan constituted the means of persuasion for the liquidation of the Freemasons and the physical extermination of the Jews.” (229).

Leazer wrote the first version of 1993 SBC study and was criticized for seeking out Freemasonry experts on Freemasonry; his side of the story is a crucial part of the picture and left out of the anti-Mason literature. Leazer chronicles one the most significant episodes in anti-Masonry history within the SBC, does so with flair and depth, and reveals the malignance. With this volume, it is all the harder to understand how the 1993 SBC report was created and Gordon’s squeak. Leazer includes a snapping bibliography with perhaps the best the collection of articles and news reports—a crucial piece of history also totally ignored by anti-Masons.

Translated from: Histoire et Rituels des Hauts Grades Maçonniques: le Rite écossais Ancien et Accepté. Paris: Dervy-Livres, 1966. 323p. 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. 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.

Ovason, David. The Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital: The Masons and the Building of Washington, D.C. HarperCollins, 2000. 528p. Publishers Weekly  said, “In this audacious, erudite study, Ovason (The Secrets of Nostradamus) sets out to prove that Washington, D.C., was designed and built largely by Masonic architects … imprinted the beliefs of their brotherhood on the city’s layout. Benjamin Franklin, architect James Hoban (who designed the White House), Presidents Garfield and Polk and Statue of Liberty sculptor Frederic Bartholdi were all Masons. Indeed, when President George Washington laid the cornerstone of the Capitol building in 1793, he wore a Masonic apron…. And although textbooks teach that the federal city was the brainchild of French engineer Pierre-Charles L’Enfant, Ovason argues that Washington, Jefferson, U.S. Surveyor General Andrew Ellicott and others—many of them Masons—substantially modified L’Enfant’s original blueprint. As a result, Masonic symbolism appears in the marble, plaster, concrete, glass and paint facades of the Federal Reserve, the Library of Congress and other landmarks. This book, the result of a decade of thought and research, establishes the plausibility of Ovason’s theory. However, the volume—a labyrinthine, illustrated tome—also contains a good deal of wild speculation. Ovason posits, for example, that the ‘earthly triangle’ formed by Capitol/White House/Washington Monument mirrors a triangle of stars in the constellation Virgo, an astrological sign important to the Masons. This, he contends, proves that Masons secretly consecrated the nation’s capital to the celestial Virgo. It’s an interesting, if dubious, suggestion—but Ovason never establishes the significance of the link between the capital and the occult.”

A Facsimile Reprint of the 2d ed. of 1775 (Bloomington, IL: Masonic Book Club, 1973. 303p.); Illustrations of Masonry (The 1st American improved ed., from Strahan’s 10th London ed.: to which is annexed, many valuable masonic addenda; and a complete list of the lodges in the United States of America. Ed. by Brother George Richards; Portsmouth, Printed by W. & D. Treadwell, 1804; 400p.), a popular reprint, 11th edition, with intro by Colin Dyer was published in Willingborough in 1985. This work was first printed in 1772, then 1775: “A second considerably revised version (the basis for all later editions) in 1775…. In the 1780s he made alterations to his system (though not on matters of symbolism) based on his convictions resulting from his historical research…. Each succeeding edition … was revised and updated…. Including the edition published in 1804 … was entirely his own, but the edition of 1812, the last during his lifetime, was probably produced with some assistance.” Preston reprints a letter supposedly by Locke dated 6 May 1696 to the Earl of Pembroke wherein Locke claims that Anthony Collins gave him a manuscript about Freemasonry and that he was sufficiently impressed by it to join the fraternity, but that letter has “since shown to have been a hoax.” John Hammill and Robert Gilbert noted that it became “the most popular Masonic book in England for some seventy-five years.” A classic piece that helped the development of early Freemasonry

Prinsen, Gerry L. Cayers Macconiques Rituals of the Lodge of Perfection. Kessinger Pub., 1998. In an unexpected way the first volume of the well known collection Maconnerie des Hommes came to light. as the first degrees of the subsequent Rite of Perfection are comprised in this volume, it is important to take note of these rituals and compare them with others. This part also contains 34 water color paintings of the same quality as the others. They are presented here as line drawings. As will be observed the title of this first volume differs from that on the back of the other volumes, which points to the fact that this part was edited a long time before the other volumes. — Ecossais or Perfect Elect of the Lodge. Kessinger Pub., 1998. Restored facsimile, a corrected French transcription and an English translation of that used by the Parfaite Loge d’Ecosse of the Elus Parfaits of Bordeaux. It was dated 1750 according to documents in the Sharp collection, and concerns a variation in ten degrees of the Ancienne Maitrise. — Miscellaneous Masonic Documents. Kessinger Pub., 1998. Documents spreading over the years from 1770 to 1809 have been grouped together; among them are letters concerning an incident that took place tat Figeac; and address by the brethren of Montauban to the Duc the Chartres denouncing the activities of Brest de la Chaussee, Daubertin and Peny; several documents linked to the “affair of the ball” in 1784; an account of the reception given to Cambaceres in 1807; and a letter from Borel exposing the rivalry between the Philosophical Ecossais Rite and the newly born Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. These documents provide the names of Masons of many Toulouse Masons towards the end of the 18th century; they have no connection with the Elus parfaits, long since expired. — Documents of Mirecourt. Kessinger Pub., 1998. Mirecourt’s collection consists of hand written rituals, mainly containing material prior to 1760. Due to its importance, several publications have been devoted to it. Latomia 70 regroups, in French transcription with a Dutch translation, the booklets containing the rituals of Fendeur du Devoir; Perfect Master; Small Elect; Apprentice, Fellow, Ecossais Master, and Grand Ecossais de Montpellier; English Master; and Knight of the East. The antiquity of the originals can be judged by the document comprising Apprentice, Fellow and Master Ecossais; these rituals are practically identical to those used in Lille in 1749.

Provides some history behind some of Freemasonry’s worst attacks, including the Catholic Church, the Communist Party, and the Nazis; plus, Robinson defuses and refutes the hateful attacks of Pat Robinson, Jerry Falwell, and others. Dennis Phillips in an Amazon.com review said, “I have over the years read several books on Freemasonry. There are other works which are much longer and go into much more detail but page for page this is probably one of the best books ever written about or for Masons. Furthermore, it would be a perfect read for any man about to join the Brotherhood, and his family, especially his wife, should read it as soon as he is finished. John Robinson writes in a style that not only can be understood by someone who has never been exposed to Masonry…. Robinson spends the first section of the book taking on the Pat Robertson’s and other Anti-Masons of the world. He has without a doubt spent a lot of time making a study of Anti-Masonic writings … take[s] their arguments one at a time and exposes the deception and outright lies they make a living on. For example, Pat Robertson, James Holly and others like them take a document credited to Albert Pike which makes it look like Pike if not all Masons do indeed worship Lucifer. This document was in fact written by a man named Leo Taxil who would later freely admit he made the whole thing up and that Pike had nothing to do with it. Taxil in fact took great delight in telling people how he had pulled the wool over their eyes and had made a fortune in so doing. Robertson in his book A New World Order attributes this document to Pike. Either he didn’t research his work too well or he simply didn’t care about the truth. Maybe lies are more profitable.” — Born in Blood: The Lost Secrets of Freemasonry. M. Evans and Company, 1989. 376p. See www.macoy.com. Publishers Weekly  said, “Unlike most of its five million members, including many world leaders, who believe that the Freemasons, the world’s largest fraternal organization, evolved from the guilds of medieval stonemasons, historian Robinson persuasively links Freemasonry’s origins and goals to the once powerful and wealthy Knights Templar order. Banned and persecuted by a 14th-century papal bull, he claims, the Knights were forced to form an underground society. The author combines scholarly research and entertaining storytelling in tracing Freemasonry as a worldwide political, religious, economic and social body dedicated to self-improvement and charity while governed by secret rituals and symbols (explained here in detail).” See www.macoy.com.

Sedgwick, Mark. Against the Modern World. OSO Monographs, 2004. 371p. Explores the history and doctrines of Traditionalism, with modernity as terminal decline from traditional metaphysical truth, and attempts to remedy this at both a personal and societal level. All responses depend on the recovery of lost tradition, notably of the “perennial philosophy.” The book examines the origins of Traditionalism in the Renaissance, and then traces the development of the groups and movements that resulted, as well as modification in doctrine. The final chapter looks at Traditionalism’s possible influence in the future, and asks why so many intellectuals found this anti-modernist movement so attractive.
