Manly P. Hall
A world-renowned authority on philosophy, comparative religion and the esoteric doctrines of antiquity.
Founded the Philosophical Research Society in 1934 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the ensoulment of all arts, sciences, and crafts.
He was a Canadian-born author and mystic.
He is perhaps most famous for his work -
The Secret Teachings of All Ages — An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy , published in 1928 at the age of 26, which is widely regarded as his magnum opus.
On 8th December 1973, he was recognized as a 33 degree Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite) - at a ceremony held at PRS - despite never being initiated into the physical craft.
In his over 70-year career, Mr. Hall authored more than 150 books and essays, and delivered over 8000 lectures in the U.S. and abroad, in his multi-faceted role as a teacher of the universal laws through which the creating principle manifests itself.
