    Did anybody read this book? Venzi shows himself as an extremely conservative Freemason with some peculiar ideas. He thinks that Enlightenment has nothing to do with FM, that Freemasonry started as a moralistic project, only got esoteric later on (influenced by the Cambridge Platonists) and afterwards degenerated back to being a moralistic organisation. He sees FM as initiatic, in the sense that Traditionalists such as René Guénon saw it, a method of reconnecting to the Divine.

    It was actually very refreshing to read something this conservative :)

    Exactly! I am currently reading a book of scripture from a religion I am not a member of. As expected it contains depths of wisdom as well as ideas I am not interested in or disagree with. The experience helps me broaden my perspective.

    I have been reading and re-reading the PA Ritual Manual, as I will be conferring 2 EA Degrees this month. I did fine in my emulation when I was signed off to be elected JW, but now it's real!

    Once I get through that I will be back at it until I go through the emulation of the FC degree at Regional School to be signed off to run for SW in December!

    I’m working on my catechism to be raised, while not being a book I’m going over those pages time and time again.

    Additionally my mentor has charged me with learning the first degree working tools lecture.

    House Undivided: The Story of Freemasonry & The Civil War by Allen E. Roberts. Re-reading actually. I spent several years doing Civil War re-enactments and my persona Seamus Nathaniel Stewart(Corporal, Co. E 4th Missouri Infantry, CSA) was a Mason.

    This is “the sequel,” in a way and I highly recommend it when you are finished.
