Pillars Of Wisdom - The Writings Of Albert Pike - Revised Edition
Rex R. Hutchens, 33°, PGM,
First published in 1995, and revised in 2016, this collection of essays looks at the major themes in Albert Pike`s writings. Pike was Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council, 33°, SJ USA, rewrote its rituals, and is perhaps best known for publishing Morals and Dogma in 1872.
Pike wrote at a time when he could expect his audience to understand theology, philosophy, and the classics. His writings can be difficult for today`s reader because of differing education backgrounds and because his prose is suited for Victorian tastes.
Bro. Hutchens has written extensively on Freemasonry and helped rewrite Pike`s rituals. His book, Bridge to Light, is given to each new initiate of the Southern Jurisdiction. Thus Hutchens brings unique skills to analyzing Pike`s writings.
Essay topics include:
Religion and Philosophy: An Infinite Search
Pike`s Unity Concept: A Purpose and Theme
Symbolism: The Soul of Masonry
Mythology: Legends with a Purpose
Knights Templar, Druids, Rosicrucians, and many more
This is a book for anyone interested in what`s behind the degrees and symbols of Freemasonry, especially the Scottish Rite.
