(Newly Revised and Illustrated)

The teachings of these Readings are not sacramental, so far as they go beyond the realm of Morality into those of other domains of Thought and Truth. The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite uses the word Dogma in its true sense, of doctrine, or teaching; and is not dogmatic in the odious sense of that term. Everyone is entirely free to reject and dissent from whatsoever herein may seem to him to be untrue or unsound. It is only required of him that he shall weigh what is taught, and give it fair hearing and unprejudiced judgment. Of course, the ancient theosophic and philosophic speculations are not embodied as part of the doctrines of the Rite; but because it is of interest and profit to know what the Ancient Intellect thought upon these subjects, and because nothing so conclusively proves the radical difference between our human and the animal nature, as the capacity of the human mind to entertain such speculations in regard to itself and the Deity. Contents: Apprentice; Fellow-craft; Master; Secret Master; Perfect Master; Intimate Secretary; Provost and Judge; Intendant of the Building; Elu of the Nine; Elu of the Fifteen; Elu of the Twelve; Master Architect; Royal Arch of Solomon; Perfect Elu; Knight of the East; Prince of Jerusalem; Knight of the East and West; Knight Rose Croix; pontiff; Master of the Symbolic Lodge; Noachite or Prussian Knight; Knight of the Royal Axe or Prince of Liabanus; Chief of the Tabernacle; Prince of the Tabernacle; Knight of the Brazen Serpent; Prince of Mercy; Knight Commander of the Temple; Knight of the Sun or Prince Adept; Scottish Knight of St. Andrew; Knight Kadosh; Inspector Inquisitor; Master of the Royal Secret.

This is an amazing piece of literature. Certainly a keystone for all of modern mankind. The precepts taught in this book, and those of Masonry, really help to give us a greater understanding of ourselves, of the universe, and the nature of God. To those who are Masons and have not read this grand work, I suggest you do so. Much like I pity those who call themselves 'Religious', but merely preach scorn and hatred, so too would I pity a Mason who does not fully understand the nature and philosophy of the Order to which they belong. To those who accuse the Masonic Lodge as being a breeding ground for evil and Baphomet worship, and who believe that Jack Chick tracts are the word of God, I propose that you also read this work, as it is the nature of the Masonic lodge. And as Sun Tzu once said, 'Know thy enemy'. You may be surprised what you learn about the Lodge, and about yourself and your own religion as well. And to those whom have yet to form a religion, or do not understand where their faith lies, I urge you to also read this book. It will help you to understand the nature of God, rather than the modern perversions and misinterpretations of many of the nobler religions. Albert Pike explains well the nature of God, the origin of the religions, and puts into perspective concepts of God which any man would be foolish to deny. To have faith in God does not mean one must have a religion... as religion is merely a system of doctrines to teach and explain God to man in a specific manner. God's nature transcends all notions of organized religion, and this book explains that concept well. Definitely a read that will benefit the lives of anyone who commits to it, be they religious or not. It is a jewel in the rough, and fie on anyone who would criticize Masonry without first looking within the pages of this book.

Dear All: I must respond here to what I have seen in the reviews. Gen. and Brother Albert Pike's MORALS AND DOGMA, ETC., is one of the most magnificent books that I have ever read. In that Book is a Digest of the ideas of every Religion of Light, as well as the best introduction to the Holy Kabballah (there are various spellings for 'Kabballah') that I have ever been blessed to see. His Scholarship is unequaled today. I must say here that those who deride Freemasonry and curse the Scottish Rite, in my lowly opinion, simply (no animosity intended here) are unfortunately ignorant of what they are saying. Therefore I do believe that God forgives them. (I forgive also). Be that as it may, Pike's works are just a few of the Leftover Gems from the 19th and 20th Centuries passed on to the Modern World. Everyone should read MORALS AND DOGMA. Our Planet would be a much better place. The Most Rev. Dr., Mitchell C. Barron, B.S.Ed., D.D., Ed.R.D.

What is the philosophy inculcated by the Masonic Fraternity? Why have so many renowned men such as George Washington, Mozart, Benjamin Franklin, Harry S. Truman, and Sir Winston Churchill found in Masonic membership keys to leading enlightened lives? 'Morals and Dogma', written by poet, philosopher, frontiersman, soldier, humanitarian and philanthropist Albert Pike, explores in this volume answers to these questions, along with commentaries on religious and philosophical beliefs throughout history. Recommended to everyone who is interested in philosophy and comparative religion, but more especially to the Mason who desires a more thorough understanding of his fraternity.

With faith in man, hope for the future of humanity, and loving kindness for our fellows, Masonry is just as vital for our future as it has been in our past. It seeks to be an unambitious and disinterested guide. We do not see the great religious rulers aiming to discover truth. Corrupt and venal orators are the assassins of the public liberties and of public morals. The lessons in Pike's M & D are not just for Scottish Rite Masons, but for humanity, which has changed very little since the first edition of 1871.
