4 Hiller, Frederick T. The Shrine.
Hiller Publishing Company, (1977). 
Quarto, hardcover (black, full-color photo illus. boards), [288] pp. Near-Fine, with lightly rubbed edges. From Preface: Syria Temple is 100 years old. On these pages is the story of those 100 years. The casual reader will find it an impressive and colorfulstory, full of the stuff that makes an organization great. Dedicated, longtime Syria members will not be casual readers, however. The same attraction that drew and welded them to Shrinedom will make this history compelling reading. For this story telescopes the tremendous energies and deep commitments of thousands of persons into one volume of words and pictures. syria, with its nearly 26,000 members, is truly one of the great examples of the Shrine in action...In its original concept, this project was to be merely a history of local Masonry and Syria Temple in the Pittsburgh area. Progressively, it became obvious that Shrinedom should be included on a broad scale, since Syria's character reflects the philosophy of a greater body...Hopefully, as readers progress, they will visualize some of the rich history that has been ours. And somewhere within its pages they will recognize the niche that is theirs in this vast Shrine empire.

5 Knight, Christopher and Lomas, Robert. The Second Messiah: Templars, The Turin Shroud, and the Great Secret of Freemasonry.
Shaftesbury, Dorset: Element, [1997]. 
Octavo, green cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xi, 256 pp. Fine (As New), in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. “For almost seven and a half centuries a piece of cloth was venerated because it bore the image of the crucified Christ, but in 1988 results of carbon dating showed that the fabric could not pre-date 1260. Now new evidence conclusively proves that it is not a fake...yet neither is it the image of Jesus Christ. Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas have been able to identify precisely where and when the shroud came into existence and to name the people involved. Using the latest scientific techniques, they explain the strange molecular chemistry that created this unique artifact. The epic story behind the shroud begins with the crucifixion of Jesus when, as the authors show, his hidden teachings were driven underground. Following the destruction of the Jerusalem Church and the slaughter of the Jewish nation in AD70, a few surviving priests from the smouldering city of Jerusalem headed to Euope to awit the moment of return prophesied in the Gospel of St. John. Precisely one thousand years later their bloodline descendants re-entered the holy city to claim their ancient heritage and form a new order of the priests of the Temple - the Knights Templar. There they recovered the lost teachings hidden blow the tumbled ruins and devised elaborate Tarot cards with cryptic meanings to protect their secret cult....”
