Masonic Authors

And Their Books


The authors of Masonic books come from many walks of life. Many of them are Masons and have direct knowledge of their material, while others are not Masons and rely upon extensive research. As a result, opinions and insights vary considerably among them, and a wide reading of various authors produces the most reliable and satisfying understanding of the many aspects of Freemasonry. Further information on the books they wrote can often be found in the Masonic Books section.
