In MYTH, MAGICK & MASONRY, Jaime Paul Lamb develops four thought-provoking interpretations of the symbolism and allegorical content of Freemasonry and some of its appendant bodies. By viewing the craft through the interpretive lenses of ceremonial magick, solar and astrological lore and symbolism, classical mythology and the Roman Mystery cult, Mithraism, Lamb establishes four distinct vantage points from which to survey Freemasonry. Thereby, Jaime Paul Lamb enables Masons, new and old, to develop a more nuanced appreciation of the Craft and a deeper understanding of the Fraternity’s priceless initiatory heritage.
This is now Available in The Laudable Pursuit Bookstore (and soon on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.)

What People are Saying:
“Bro. Lamb's remarkably readable work should be read by every Mason who is not afraid to discover the Magick in Masonry; and by every Magician who is not afraid to discover the Masonry in Ceremonial Magick.”
- Lon Milo DuQuette, 32°, author of The Chicken Qabalah and The Key to Solomon’s Key
“Jaime Paul Lamb distills centuries of practice, lore and symbolism bridging magick and masonry—bolstered by a trove of original observations which only someone with a foot firmly in both worlds could make—to demonstrate that myth, magick and masonry are not such strange bedfellows after all.”
- Richard Kaczynski, author of Perdurabo: The Life of Aleister Crowley and Forgotten Templars: The Untold Origins of Ordo Templi Orientis
“[…] being a Raised Master in the Masonic Fraternity as well as a Master Magician in Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.), one of the few remaining Orders instructing its members in practical magick, Jaime Paul Lamb has one foot firmly planted in both these camps, Masonic and Magical. He thus speaks with authority on the hidden connections between Freemasonry and Ceremonial Magick. Moreover, he does a fine job of demonstrating those occult connections to his readers.”
- P.D. Newman, 32°, author of Alchemically Stoned
“Jaime Paul Lamb’s new book provides a good starting point for the study of Freemasonry’s esoteric roots, from the overlap between Masonry and ceremonial magick that flourished in the early part of the twentieth century, to solar and astronomical symbolism in the Fraternity, and finally to elements of classical mythology that can be found to this day among Masonic teachings. All of these subjects offer vast fields for further inquiry, and this book will give you a solid foundation from which to explore them.”
- Scott Michael Stenwick, author of Arcana and Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy
“Jaime Paul Lamb has captured the essence of the subtle elements of Freemasonry and has condensed them into a highly readable and informative book. This is a welcomed addition to the body of knowledge of the Craft.”
- William S. Burkle, Ph.D., MM, KT, 32°, SRICF IX°
“Jaime Paul Lamb is a tremendous talent. He offers an exciting opportunity for the Speculative Freemason to enrich his understanding of the craft.”
- David Miller, 33°, KCT, IX° and Chief Adept of SRICF Arizona College
