User Review  - Chuck Springer - Goodreads

An interesting read which provides some of the ideology behind freemasonry. Throughout the book, it prompted me to question myself and the direction I am heading. I enjoyed the opportunities of contemplation it allowed. Read full review

About the author (1976)

Manly Palmer Hall (March 18, 1901 - August 29, 1990) was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, published in 1928 when he was 27 years old. It is claimed that Hall was made a knight patron of the Masonic Research Group of San Francisco in 1953, although he was not raised as a Mason until 22 November 1954 into Jewel Lodge No. 374, San Francisco. He later received his 32 in the Valley of San Francisco AASR (SJ). In 1973 (47 years after writing The Secret Teachings of All Ages), Hall was recognized as a 33 Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite), at a ceremony held at the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) on December 8,1973.). The definitive Manly Palmer Hall Archive states that Hall received the 33, "despite never being initiated into the physical craft." In his over 70-year career, Hall delivered approximately 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.
