The Ancient Mysteries and Modern Masonry



The Ancient Mysteries and Modern Masonry

“The Series of Sunday Evening Lectures which comprise this book were first given in the Pullman Memorial Church, Albion, N. Y., to the members of Renovation Lodge No. 97, F. & A. M., and the congregation of which the author is pastor. The many calls for the lectures in printed form led to their publication. We trust that the book may contribute to a better understanding of the Order by the general public; inspiring our Brother Masons to greater appreciation of and loyalty to the Fraternity, and encouraging all to labor for the realization of the great principles and ideals em-bodied in the Ancient Mysteries and our Modern Masonry…

“The purpose of these lectures is to consider the origin and nature of the Ancient Mysteries and Modern Masonry and to show the relation which they bear one to the other. Freemasonry deals largely with the morals and symbols of the Mysteries of Antiquity, and originally was one of the channels of Ancient Wisdom.”

The Ancient Mysteries and Modern Masonry, Rev. Charles H. Vail, Macoy, 1909
