YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
The intention of this work is to unravel the intricate web in which the mystery of freemasonry is involved, by tracing the order back to its source, and, by showing its intimate connection and similitude to institutions more ancient, and to put it beyond a doubt, that it sprang from and is a continuation of the rites and ceremonies observed in religious dogmas and customs of the ancient Egyptians.
It sheds highly valuable light over the obscurity of the Masonic institution with its spacious depository of useful and recondite knowledge. That the writer, as a freemason, is extremely liberal, may be judged from his own reprobation of the oaths imposed upon members. He considers a total abandonment of the oaths, at the present day, requisite.
He says that the mysteries, from which the institution was derived, created, and that the custom of the times when it was established, sanctioned the most HORRIBLE OATHS.
The argument used, that these oaths are no longer necessary, is, we think, effectual against the existence of Masonry itself.
This book teaches the origin of the mysteries and ceremonies of Masonry. A glance at the subjects, fully and satisfactorily treated in the first four chapters, which occupy more than half the work, will show this fact.
The first chapter explains the "Dogmas and Customs of the ancient Egyptians." Among the rare works cited, is the Abbe Pluche's "HISTORY OF THE HEAVENS." All the included topics — comprising a full account of the worship of the Egyptians, their religious rites and observances, and the derivation from these of many customs descended to us — are treated in the most interesting and instructive manner. We have next a dissertation on the origin, nature, and object of the "ancient mysteries."
Then follows an examination of Virgil's SIXTH BOOK OF THEENEID, in which it is shown that the allegorical descent of Eneas into hell is no other than an enigmatical representation of his initiation into the mysteries.
The importance of the next chapter lies in the sketch presented of the life andDOCTINES OFPYTHAGORAS, the founder of the sect that bore his name; and the doctrines and CUSTOMS OF THE DRUIDS, the priests of the ancient Britons.
Written at a time when war of extermination had been waged against Masonry, Mr. Fellows displays the greatest liberality towards the opponents of Masonry, not doubting that many have been actuated by the purest motives.
Wishing to teach and to convince, he does not set to work in the manner of a modern political editor, by calling those who differ with him, knaves, villains and scoundrels, and then politely request them to believe what he is about to say. He is, on the contrary, mild and persuasive; and instead of knocking down his antagonist preliminary to dragging him forward, he takes him gently by the hand and tries to lead him in the path.
