A logical, eye opening book that although short, has changed my views of the history of Freemasonry and its rituals. My only complaint is that it is too short, but that can be forgiven due to the substance.
Nov 15, Petros Lamprides rated it liked it. This is certainly an interesting book. The interpretations of the 3 symbolic degrees of Freemansonry from an alchemical point of view are very well thought and at some points quite convincing and inspiring.
The weakness of this book is the lack of proper citations and the very often far-fetched assumptions. I wouldn't have a problem with intepreting parts of history, mysticism, literature and science under another view, as long as it actualy makes a point, but this book is swaying too far, try This is certainly an interesting book. I wouldn't have a problem with intepreting parts of history, mysticism, literature and science under another view, as long as it actualy makes a point, but this book is swaying too far, trying to connect things that cannot be connected so directly.
I would certainly recomend it, as a source of inspiration and reflection on the symbolic initiations, but I would not take it too literally. Also, I too think that the editing could be better. Jan 05, John rated it liked it. This book could use some editing. Other than that, it's an interesting interpretation of some Masonic rituals related to alchemy. However, I think the author has misinterpreted the symbolism and veered off into the plant kingdom rather than the mineral kingdom.
I think it has been fairly well established that nothing from the plant or animal kingdoms will ever result in the Philosophers Stone. Everything from the plant kingdom is volatile and does not withstand the test of fire. Oct 18, Pierre Normand rated it it was ok Shelves: freemasonry-europe , freemasonry-general , hermeticism , kabbalah. An interesting little booklet on the relationship of alchemical symbolism with Masonic ritual.
Unfortunately, the book is printed in a ten-point san-serif type face, making it difficult to read, and the illustrations are too small and of poor quality. I'd like to see a longer, more in-depth study of the subject. Sep 18, Nicholas Vettese rated it really liked it. A good book with an alternative view of Masonic symbolism. I was able to easily follow along, and as I went through the book, much of the information began to make sense. If you are a Freemason looking for more understanding of freemasonry, and it's symbolism, this is a great book.

The Alchemical Keys To Masonic Ritual
Timothy Hogan seeks to provide links between Masonic ritual and symbolism with processes and symbols associated with alchemy. Hogans begins his book by stating that the origins of many of our Masonic symbols have been lost and, because of this, our rituals have lost much of their impact due to the fact that we can no longer appreciate their significance pg 8. The book then goes through the Masonic ritual as best as it can without violating any obligations and begins making connections to alchemical concepts. Links are also made between our symbols, passwords, our due guards, the degrees, and the initiatic process itself. I want to be as transparent as I can right now: I really enjoyed this book but I have some criticisms. First of all, this book is short.
