Richly illustrated with sixteen full~page plates and thirty pictures in the text, and carefully indexed, Waite's New Encyclopaedia covers every topic related to the order of Freemasonry from Acacia to Zohar. Waite's approach to his topic is sympathetic: "Masonry . is part of a Divine Quest; . it becomes an open gate into a world of real knowledge, where the Divine Quest ends in Divine Attainment." Waite is also mercilessly objective, and he has applied meticulous research and careful scholarship to explode dozens of myths that have pervaded Masonic lore through the centuries. There are fascinating sections on the occult sciences~Alchemy, Astrology, Kabalism, Ceremonial Magic, Animal Magnetism ~and their claims to connections with Masonry. Waite charts the course of Freemasonry throughout the world~in China, Australasia, Austria, Brazil, Central America, Wales, Mexico, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, Peru, Portugal, Netherlands, Africa, India, Canada, West Indies, Japan, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Scotland, and the United States. There are forty~nine pages on Masonic chronology~beginning in the clouded region of mythical invention in 926 A.D. and ending in 1917 with the second centenary of the Grand Lodge of England. In addition to biographical sketches of great leaders and writers of the Masonic Order, there are vignettes of mountebanks and fakers who have surfaced from time to time in Masonic history, including the famous charlatan, Count Cagliostro, and his attempt to take over the Masonic Order. Ex~priest Emmett McLoughlin, author of People's Padre, American Culture and Catholic Schools, Crime and Immorality in the Catholic Church, Famous Ex~Priests, An Inquiry into the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and Letters to an Ex~Priest, has provided an engrossing Introduction to A New Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry, in which he details his transition from priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church, to membership in its ancient adversary, the Masonic Order. Waite's New Encyclopaedia offers interesting insights into why the Catholic Church cannot tolerate Freemasonry, and traces the Church's attacks on the Order through the Anti~Masonic Congress at Trent; the Inquisition; the Bull of Pope Clement XII (1738); the Bull of Pope Benedict XIV (1751); the Bull of Pope Pius VII (1821); the Bull of Pope Leo XII (1825); papal condemnations in 1829, 1832, 1846, and 1856; and the Humanum Genus Encyclical of Pope Leo Xill (1884).
