Editorial Board

To maintain the quality of the Philalethes journal, the Society’s Executive Committee has appointed an Editorial Board consisting of highly qualified Masonic scholars and leaders.

Shawn Eyer, Editor

Shawn Eyer is a writer on Masonic symbolism, history, ritual and philosophy. He holds a Master of Arts in Transpersonal Psychology, and a dual Baccalaureate degree in Psychology and Religious Studies. He edited, with Christopher B. Murphy, Exploring Early Grand Lodge Freemasonry: Studies in Honor of the Tricentennial of the Establishment of the Grand Lodge of England. His current work is focused on the careful reading of early Masonic literature, with special attention to intertextuality, thematic progression, and ritualistic practice.
