The papers are all about connecting Freemasonry to the “gnosis of . The tablet, as a translated work, can be found in its oldest documented source from the Kitab Sirr al-Asrar, The Book of the Secret of Secrets, which is a 12th century translation of a 10th century Arabic text which included subjects on many areas of interest to the contemporary mystery school student including ethics, astronomy, magic, and. Freemasonry and the Hermetic Tradition. R.A. Gilbert. GNOSIS #6. If, as is stated categorically by the United Grand Lodge of England , Freemasonry "is not a Secret Society" and is "not a religion or a substitute for religion," then what is it?And why should students of the occult be concerned with the history, symbolism and rituals of this "peculiar system of morality, veiled in allegory. And this is the paradox of the hermetic misunderstanding of Freemasonry. The ideas of its motley crew of apologists are propagated in books that survive when the lives of their authors (and their opponents) are long forgotten, for there is a common thread that binds them all together.
Such in rough outline is the case as it stands for the interference of two Hermetic Schools in Freemasonry, prior to the first historical evidence for the ritual of the Third Craft degree and apart from any long since exploded hypothesis which has sought to connect the Brotherhood with older Mysteries by means of direct transmission within.

If we were to hold it up to that standard, it would be an empty shell (not qlippothic, just empty). It’s important to treat Freemasonry as a culture of morality, fidelity, integrity, honour, and service rather than an esoteric body in order to appreciate it.
William Fowler, a colleague of Shaw, had met with Bruno in London in the s and it is feasible that this is how Shaw became exposed to the Hermetic Art of Memory. Cooper, the Grand archivist of the Grand Lodge of Scotland, makes many references to Hermeticism in his book Cracking the Freemasons Code. Brother Cooper asserts. But the main issue of this chapter is that whilst Masonry is a synonym of the Art branch of the Mysteries, the Arcane, Mystic, and Hermetic Schools transmitted the rites and doctrines of the Greater Mysteries though shorn of old splendour, until such times as Freemasonry reunited the two divisions, in what was technically termed Ancient Masonry. excellent book about freemasonry symbolism What listeners say about Emblematic Freemasonry, Building Guilds and Hermetic Schools: Foundations of Freemasonry Series.
