The Phylaxis: Collection One

This bound collection contains the first ten issues of The Phylaxis magazine—magazines that set the tone for a research, historical, and educational society that, at this writing, is in its fifth decade of research, history, and education. This compilation encapsulates the spirit upon which the Phylaxis Society was built, and it should serve as encouragement and inspiration to any Prince Hall mason who studies it well. Take your time; it is not a  task to be rushed. This collection has the power to transform, and when you are transformed, as I think you will be, you owe it to those masons you love to help them with their transformation. This volume should be required reading for Prince Hall masons, but because this is no trivial task, your insistent encouragement will be needed to motivate your brothers to the effort.

We say we are seeking light, but more to the point we are seeking truth—that fundamental tenant of Freemasonry we call a divine attribute and the foundation of every virtue. Join with us and “You will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”
