THE TEMPLE OF SOLOMON IN THE VOLUME OF SACRED LAW AND CRAFT RITUAL

by W. Bro. Stephen MICHALAK

Assistant Grand Lecturer
Grand Lodge of South Australia and the Northern Territory

 

Second Revision. January 2006

 

 

 

Dedication:

 

This work is dedicated in deep appreciation and the fondest gratitude to four Freemasons:

 

W. Bro Barrie Newman Past Master

W. Bro Jack Douglas Past Grand Pursuivant

V.W. Bro Barrie Anderson, Dip. Mas. Ed., Past Grand Lecturer

VW Bro Brian King, Dip. Mas. Ed., Past Grand Lecturer

 

Each of them understands the personal reasons why I have dedicated this work to them.

 

Importantly, this work is also dedicated with admiration to the brethren of my own mother lodge - Elizabeth Lodge 200 (SAC). It is in each otherís company that we begin to make the practice of Freemasonry, a joy. 

 

 

With fraternal affection,

 

W. Bro Stephen Michalak
