THE TEMPLE OF KING SOLOMON
The problem is that the quotations are all taken
from the Authorised Version of the Bible, known
to the iIIiterati as the King James Version. This

There are many references to King Solomon’s
Temple in our Rituals. Some of these are Biblical
quotations, some are Masonic Traditions. In the
case of the latter there is often good reason to
ask whether they have any factual basis, but
also, in some quotations there is good reason to
doubt the accuracy of the Biblical translation.

WHITHER DIRECTING OUR COURSE?
A paper by: Pro Grand Master, Lord Northampton

those of Grand Lodge. As Pro Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England,

one of my responsibilities is to try and steer the Craft during my tenure of office in a
direction which I hope will be beneficial for its future - hence the title of this paper.

The Five Orders of Architecture
“I have been a Freemason since 1999

orders of architecture, namely the

Composite.”
