The Waffen-SS has been given similar upgrades to the Wehrmacht, albeit to a lesser extent. Some have depicted it as an apolitical fighting force that was not involved in Nazi war crimes.
A Degree in the collection of Pyron. A work in the Persian tongue, being a summary of the Avesta, or sacred books. They denied the resurrection, a future state, and the existence of angels.
The tenets of the Sadducees are noticed as contrasted with those of the Pharisees. While Jesus condemned the Sadducees and Pharisees, he is nowhere found criticizing the gets, words, or doctrines of the third sect of the Jews, the Essenes; wherefore, it has been strongly favored that Jesus was himself one of the last-named sect, who in many excellent qualities resembled Freemasons.
The Sadducees were the most conservative of forces, the Pharisees more advanced in the later thoughts and tendencies. The Gospels throw an interesting and significant light upon these circumstances and their effects in that era. One of the most painstaking, patient, and persevering of Masonic students.
He was initiated in in the Lodge of Justice No. In he was a founder of the Southgate Lodge, No. In he was appointed Grand Tiler of the Grand Lodge of England, and held the post untilwhen he retired on a pension. In he was appointed Sub-Librarian to the Grand dodge of England and was promoted to be its Librarian in His position in the Grand Lodge Library gave him access to all the old records of the Grand Lodge of England, and enabled him to write most valuable books on various points in connection with the history of English Freemasonry.
In appeared his principal work, Masonic Facts and Fictions, in which he claimed, and his argument was generally accepted, that the Grand Lodge of the Antients was formed in London by some Irish Freemasons, who had not seceded, as had been supposed from the Regular Grand Lodge.
The abscissa of a curve. It is not difficult for Englishmen to think of themselves as a people partly afloat, nor the Norwegians, and still less the Japanese; but America also is partly afloat, and ever has been, though it is hard for Americans to believe it.
The Navy itself has more duties in peacetime than in war, and of equal importance, for it is our government abroad, without which consuls, ministers, ambassadors and diplomats in general would carry little weight.
Wherever the Navy goes, America goes. As for Britain, its fleet has been its alter ego. Freemasonry also, ever since as a world-wide Speculative Fraternity it escaped out of the cocoon of the Time Immemorial Lodges, has been afloat on the merchant ships and with the navies, and has with its Lodges followed them, or has waited for them in more than 3 thousand ports.
Moreover the sea is one of the oldest of callings, millennia older than Homer who celebrated it, for the first ships appeared at the same time as the first houses and the most ancient cities.
Also, like the arts and crafts on land, they have from a long time ago had their own gilds and fraternities; the Greek mariners, who went everywhere, had their associations. After the gild system arose early in Medieval times seamen had gilds of their own; they took apprentices; had a Patron Saint; had part in pageants with a float depicting Noah; and from the beginning of the theater were favorite stage characters.
If ever a truly complete history of Freemasonry is written, omitting nothing important enough to have a chapter of its own, it will tell the story of how seamen of Britain, America, and the maritime countries of Europe carried Masonry around the world; so that if they had no share in its antiquity they had a large share in that other Landmark, its universality.
In his youth he visited Rome, and served seven years as a soldier under the Emperor Diocletian.
On his return to Britain he embraced Christianity, and was the first who suffered martyrdom in the great persecution which raged during the reign of that emperor. The Freemasons of England have claimed Saint Alban as being intimately connected with the early history of the Fraternity in that island.
Anderson Constitutions,page 57 says, "This is asserted by all the old copies of the Constitutions, and the old English Masons firmly believed it," and he quotes from the Old Constitutions: Saint Alban loved Masons well and cherished them much, and he made their pay right good; viz.
Ho also obtained of the King a Charter for the Free Masons, for to hold a general council, and gave it the name of Assembly, and was thereat himself as Grand Master and helped to make Masons and gave them good charges.
We have another tradition on the same Subject; for in a little work published aboutat London, under the title of The Complete Free Mason or Multa Paucis for the Lovers of Secrets, we find the following statement page 47 in reference to the Masonic character and position of plaint Alban.
Both of these statements are simply legends, or traditions of the not unusual character, in which historical facts are destroyed by legendary additions. It is another fact that a splendid Episcopal palace was built there, whether in the time of Saint Alban or not is not so certain; but the affirmative has been assumed; and hence it easily followed that, if built in his time, he must have superintended the building of the edifice.
He would, of course, employ the workmen, give them his patronage, and, to some extent, by his superior abilities, direct their labors. Nothing was easier, then, than to make him, after all this, a Grand Master.
The increase of pay for labor and the annual congregation of the Freemasons in a General Assembly, having been subsequent events, the exact date of whose first occurrence has been lost, by a process common in the development of traditions, they were readily transferred to the same era as the building of the palace at Verulam.
It is not even necessary to suppose, by way of explanation, as Preston does, that Saint Alban was a celebrated architect, and a real encourager of able workmen. The whole of the tradition is worked out of these simple facts: The inquiring student of history will neither assert nor deny net Saint Alban built the palace of Verulam.Jesus Myth - The Case Against Historical Christ.
