Pansophic Freemasons's Biography (Books)

To Authors Index

Pansophic is an irregular Masonic obedience of men and women. Their mission is to preserve, study, improve, develop, practice, and perpetuate the esoteric spiritual and initiatic degrees and schools associated with the Pansophic Rites of Freemasonry and other spiritual traditions as part of the general Masonic practice of social and self-improvement, and to revive the universal and spiritual traditions of Freemasonry as they were originally practiced by speculative or philosophical Masons within the context of Rosicrucian, Templar, Kabbalistic, Gnostic, and other esoteric European schools. Collectively, these spiritual paths were known as the Graal or sacred Grail.
