Reviews

"Memory Palaces and Masonic Lodges is a masterpiece of research on two topics: the art of memory and the lost Word of Freemasonry. Jameux's examination of Bruno's theories of the memory palace as a means to accessing celestial realms, coupled with how its application transforms Masonic trestle boards and temples into veritable talismans, is indispensable to understanding the history and practice of the transmission of knowledge in all its forms. This is a book I was planning on writing. Now I do not have to. Jameux has done the job for each of us--now all we need to do is apply it!" * Mark Stavish, author of Egregores and Freemasonry *
