|Myth, Magick and Masonry. Occult Perspectives in Freemasonry. Jaime Paul Lamb|
Jaime Paul Lamb friended me on Facebook about 5 years ago. At the time, he was writing articles for the Grand Lodge of Connecticut publication as well as the Knight Templar magazine. He's a friendly and very knowledgeable Mason.
He published this book back in 2018, but I'm just getting around to it now. I was further sold on the book when I saw quotes of praise on the back cover from Lon Milo DuQuette and Richard Kaczynski, two authors whom I hold in high regard.
"In MYTH, MAGICK & MASONRY, Jaime Paul Lamb develops four thought-provoking interpretations of the symbolism and allegorical content of Freemasonry and some of its appendant bodies. By viewing the craft through the interpretive lenses of ceremonial magick, solar and astrological lore and symbolism, classical mythology and the Roman Mystery cult, Mithraism, Lamb establishes four distinct vantage points from which to survey Freemasonry. Thereby, Jaime Paul Lamb enables Masons, new and old, to develop a more nuanced appreciation of the Craft and a deeper understanding of the Fraternity's priceless initiatory heritage."
