About this deal

Scholars believe, and we concur, that this work is important enough to be preserved, reproduced, and made generally available to the public.

The sight of a single dungeon of tyranny is worth more, to dispel illusions, and create a holy hatred of despotism, and to direct FORCE aright, than the most eloquent volumes. The Hebrew Pentateuch in a Hebrew Lodge, and the Koran in a Mohammedan one, belong on the Altar; and one of these, and the Square and Compass, properly understood, are the Great Lights by which a Mason must walk and work. First published in 1871, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry is an abstruse philosophical tract written by Arkansas historical figure Albert Pike.It serves the useful purpose of putting Masonic morality and ethics within the context of the general society, and bids man to think large - to cast aside the petty concerns of everyday life and to improve ourselves. Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry," authored by Albert Pike, stands as a cornerstone in the esoteric and philosophical literature of Freemasonry. The people that would be Free and Independent, must possess Sagacity, Forethought, Foresight, and careful Circumspection, all which are included in the meaning of the word Prudence.

Hardbound (8" x 10") with decorative covers, printed in two colors; illustrated, indexed; 1116 pages. Nevertheless, it remains a significant resource for Masonic scholars and those interested in the historical and philosophical aspects of Freemasonry. A perfectly pure faith, free from all extraneous admixtures, a system of noble theism and lofty morality, would find too little preparation for it in the common mind and heart.

The Bible is an indispensable part of the furniture of a Christian Lodge, only because it is the sacred book of the Christian religion. This has sometimes been made a pretext for excluding Jews from our Lodges, because they cannot regard the New Testament as a holy book. There are 32 chapters, one for each of the degrees in the Southern Jurisdiction, except for the 33°. The complete cube has three more faces, making six; three more lines, making twelve; and one more point, making eight. Bubbles that, bursting, impoverish multitudes, will be blown up by cunning knavery, with stupid credulity as its assistants and instrument.

There are immense Forces in the great caverns of evil beneath society; in the hideous degradation, squalor, wretchedness and destitution, vices and crimes that reek and simmer in the darkness in that populace below the people, of great cities. Accordingly a ladder, sometimes with nine rounds, is seen on the chart, resting at the bottom on the earth, its top in the clouds, the stars shining above it; and this is deemed to represent that mystic ladder, which Jacob saw in his dream, set up on the earth, and the top of it reaching to Heaven, with the angels of God ascending and descending on it. A miasma exhales from these crouching consciences that reflect the master; the public authorities are unclean, hearts are collapsed, consciences shrunken, souls puny.For the practicing Freemason at that level who takes these printed words to heart it serves as a road-map for living a self-actualized life. A través de la síntesis de doctrinas que provienen tanto de Oriente como de Occidente, Albert Pike describe los principios y el contenido de un grado cuyo origen se pierde en la noche de los tiempos. During Pike's lifetime the Northern Jurisdiction based many of their degrees upon Pike's rituals, although they subsequently revised them many times, and never presented initiates with Morals and Dogma, nor any of the subsequent commentaries. To relieve the distressed is peculiarly the duty of Masons—a sacred duty, not to be omitted, neglected, or coldly or inefficiently complied with.

Not low worldliness; but the love of Earth as the garden on which the Creator has lavished such miracles of beauty; as the habitation of humanity, the arena of its conflicts, the scene of its illimitable progress, the dwelling-place of the wise, the good, the active, the loving, and the dear; the place of opportunity for the development by means of sin and suffering and sorrow, of the noblest passions, the loftiest virtues, and the tenderest sympathies. much insight into freemanry; understand it more and made my own conclusions on what they represent; alot of philosophical information that shown me things I didn't expect but brought everything full circle to me. We shall unleash the nihilists and the atheists and we shall provoke a great social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to all nations the effect of absolute atheism; the origins of savagery and of most bloody turmoil. The French should have preserved the Bastile as a perpetual lesson; Italy should not destroy the dungeons of the Inquisition. If the parallel lines ever belonged to the ancient symbol, they had some more recondite and more fruitful meaning.

We appreciate your support of the preservation process, and thank you for being an important part of keeping this knowledge alive and relevant. You will hear shortly of the Rough ASHLAR and the Perfect ASHLAR, as part of the jewels of the Lodge. The JUSTICE and MERCY of God are in equilibrium, and the result is HARMONY, because a Single and Perfect Wisdom presides over both.
