Completed over 50 years in Masonry. Have been a member of 5 Craft lodges in UK and South Africa. I am a Past Master of three of those lodges as well as having been a member of various other masonic orders. Before retiring I worked in the printing and publishing industry for most of my working life. I spent 25 years in South Africa, returning to the UK in 1997. I now live in Fort William in the NW Highlands of Scotland. I started Temple-Arch Publishers as a hobby after retiring, I publish out-of-print masonic books as well as writing and publishing some of my own material.
A short biography of a few select brethren whose thoughts and words have had a great influence on Freemasonry
Johann Wolfgang Goethe
Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
In recent years there have been many books
written on the part that the Order of the Temple
(Knights Templar) may have played in the
founding of Freemasonry.
Some of these books have been fanciful in the
extreme, others have put forward some reasonable
arguments. This book does not dispute any of those arguments, but puts forward the facts as they are known in the written record.
Rosslyn Chapel has become the scene for many theories regarding the Knights Templar and Freemasonry. This book is a short guide to Rosslyn and sets out to dispel some of the myths that have been built up over the years.
