The Book of the Words (Sephir H' Debarim) (Out of Print)
by Pike, Albert
Publisher: Scottish Rite Research Center
Book ID: A8942, A8942
- Albert Pike, 33o, Sovereign Grand Commander (1859-91) Introduction by Arturo de Hoyos, 33o, Grand Archivist and Grand Historian
- Freemasonry has traditional "modes of recognition" which include symbolic signs, tokens, and words. This work explores the etymological and symbolic origins of the Scottish Rite's symbolic words, from the 1st through the 32d Degree.
- Words such as Boaz, Jachin, Mahabon, Gabaon, and many others, are presented in their original languages, transliterated, translated and then fully explained. Extensive quotations from Hermetic and Kabbalistic literature explore the esoteric origins of Masonic symbolism, and suggest reasons why these symbolic words were adopted.
- This facsimile of the 1879 second edition includes all supplementary material prepared by Pike, including pages 92a-92f, and "Some Recent Investigations" of 1880. The introduction provides the background of Albert Pike's Scottish Rite involvement, the development of its rituals, and teaches the reader how to use The Book of the Words.
- An extensive new index was prepared for this edition by Norman D. Peterson, 32o, KCCH, and a list of Biblical Citations, prepared by Dr. Rex R. Hutchens, 33o, Grand Cross, completes the work. This special edition was prepared by the Scottish Rite Research Society.
- Clothbound; 217 pages; illustrated.
