THE MASONIC BROTHERHOOD ~ SHROUDED IN MYSTERY

A RARE FREEMASONRY RITUALS BOOK WRITTEN ENTIRELY IN SECRET CODE


Freemasonry has long been shrouded in mystery. From its early beginnings, teaching of the craft was done on the dirt floors of lodges—instructions drawn with sticks and then erased at the end of the clandestine meetings.


Heavily steeped in tradition, the fraternity continued its teachings via mouth to ear for centuries. But this posed a problem for Freemasons. Eventually it became evident that the teachings and ceremonies of Freemasonry needed to be written down.


Writing the rituals and lectures in secret code that only Freemasons could read was an excellent solution. In Ritual of the Work and Lectures of Ancient Craft Masonry, all entries are written in cryptic code.
A rare and exciting offering for the Freemason or Masonic collector.

Brief Summary of Freemasonry History


The Freemasons have been the subject of much intrigue, speculation and discussion for centuries.The true origins of Freemasonry are not known. The knowledge has been lost to history, which leaves room only for speculation.


Some researchers believe that the origins go as far back as either the Ancient Mysteries, the Crusades, the Jewish religion, the Rosicrucian’s or the Knights Templar. Although all of these theories have been considered, no firm conclusions have ever been reached.


According to some legends the brotherhood dates back to the construction of King Solomon’s Temple. These legends appeared to be substantiated when the British Archaeologist and Egyptologist, Sir William Petrie, towards the end of the 19th century, unearthed papyrus records in the Liberian desert describing meetings of these guilds. Some scholars however do not feel that there is sufficient data to fully substantiate the claims.


Along with speculation on the origins of Freemasonry, there have also been hundreds of conspiracy theories that have plagued Freemasons from as early as the late 1700’s. Generally these theories fall into just a couple of categories: Political Domination and Anti-Christian or Devil Worship.


Likely these are a result of the esoteric nature of the Masonic rituals and symbols, misinterpretations of Masonic doctrines and the repetition of false claims. In fact, in the late 1890’s author Leo Taxil, decided to mock not only Freemasonry but also the Roman Catholic Church for their opposition to Freemasonry.


He wrote 4 volumes filled with ‘damning eyewitness accounts’ from people who allegedly participated in demonic worship as Freemasons. Prior to writing his books, he had undergone a ‘fake’ conversion to Catholicism.


One of the eyewitnesses in his book was a woman by the name of Diana Vaughn who claimed to have been involved with Satanic Freemason rituals. His book even received the praise from the Pope.


Taxil called a press conference in late 1897 where he promised to introduce Diana Vaughn to the world. Instead he announced that all of his writing was fictitious and a hoax and he thanked the Clergy for giving press to his wild claims.


Yet, still to this day his fictitious writings are used against Freemasons.. Some of the other theories are that Freemasons are secretly working towards a New World Order where one world Government controlled by a secret elite will govern the entire world.


There have been suggestions that Freemasons were behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Others have claimed that they secretly back a Jewish front for world domination. In fact, because of this theory Adolph Hitler outlawed Freemasonry.


Some believe that Freemasons secretly control the United States and United Kingdom governments.


This may come from the fact that many prominent politicians—Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and thirteen other United States Presidents--in the history of the United States were indeed Freemasons.


Also there is much speculation about ‘hidden symbols and numerology in our National Seals, architecture, dollar bill and even streets in Washington, D.C. Many prominent men throughout history have been Freemasons. This may have led to the mistaken theory that Freemasons ‘control’ governments, etc.


Yet, these famous Masons have come from all walks of life. With so many powerful members how is rank decided upon in a Freemason Lodge?


It matters not what a man’s religion (except no atheists are permitted), wealth, or station in life is behind the Lodge doors. In fact, the only significant rank in a Masonic lodge is Masonic rank, and that is conferred by vote of the members.


A sergeant in the army can be master of and preside over a lodge that includes generals and other high-ranking officers among its membership, which has often happened.


It has been reported that when Theodore Roosevelt became a Mason he discovered his gardener was serving as master of the lodge—the presiding officer. Men of high station outside Masonry evidence no resentment when men of lower outside station occupy positions of greater Masonic authority.


Prominent Freemasons have included the likes of Benedict Arnold, Four of Napoleon Bonaparte’s brothers, though not the great Emperor himself, Sir Winston Churchill, Joseph Smith, fourteen American Presidents, Buffalo Bill, Davey Crocket, Henry Ford, Jack Dempsey, Clark Gable, King George VI, John Hancock, Harry Houdini, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Norman Vincent Peale, Mozart, Albert, Richard Pryor, Paul Revere, Mark Twain, John Wayne and Steve Wozniak to name just a few.
