Brethren In Chivarly
A Lewis Masonic Classic Reprint
A Celebration of the Two Hundred Years of the Great Priory of the United Religious, Military and Masonic Orders of the Temple and of St John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta of England and Wales and Provinces Overseas 1791-1991
With very little previously published on the development of this popular Order this is an valuable and most welcome addition to masonic literature written by a respected and knowledgeable author.
The history is traced from earliest known records with much information showing links with European Rites prior to the establishment of the first Grand Conclave in 1791.
In tracing the development the author examines the ritual, clothing and officer structure of Knights Templars together with overseas Orders.
This volume contains much information and source material never published elsewhere providing the reader with an authoritative insight into the ever popular Masonic order.
