9781330115404: The Book of the Chapter: Or Monitorial Instructions, in the Degrees of Mark, Past and Most Excellent Master, and the Holy Royal Arch (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Book of the Chapter: Or Monitorial Instructions, in the Degrees of Mark, Past and Most Excellent Master, and the Holy Royal Arch

It must be acknowledged that there is no dearth of ordinary monitorial books, although I know of none exclusively appropriated to the Chapter degrees. But an experience, by no means inconsiderable, has forced upon me the conviction that the plan upon which these works have been hitherto constructed, is not such as to meet the demands of the enlarged masonic intellect of the present day. All the Monitors now extant appear to have adopted that of Thomas Smith Webb as their prototype, and, like it, have been very generally confined to the arrangement of the prayers, charges, and Scripture lessons, which are used in the several degrees, without any, or, at most, a very slight attempt to explain, by commentaries, the symbolic meaning or the historical references of the different portions of the ritual. Hence, but very little knowledge, beyond the mere working part of our institution, is to be obtained from these books; and although they are well enough for that purpose, still, as it is not the only purpose which may and ought to be effected by a Monitor, I have sought to present the masonic reader with something more in the ensuing pages.
