Manly P. HallManly Palmer Hall (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990) was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, which is widely regarded as his magnum opus, and which he published at the age of 25 (or 27, 1928)

He has been widely recognized as a leading scholar in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult.

Carl Jung, when writing Psychology and Alchemy, borrowed material from Hall’s private collection.

In 1934, Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) in Los Angeles, California, dedicating it to an idealistic approach to the solution of human problems. The PRS claims to be non-sectarian and entirely free from educational, political, or ecclesiastical control, and the Society’s programs stress the need for the integration of philosophy, religion, and science into one system of instruction. The PRS Library, a public facility devoted to source materials in obscure fields, has many rare and scarce items now impossible to obtain elsewhere.

In 1973 (47 years after writing The Secret Teachings of All Ages), Hall was recognized as a 33º Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite), at a ceremony held at PRS on December 8th, despite never being initiated into the physical craft.

In his over 70-year career, Hall delivered approximately 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.

    Thank you.

  4. Among my many Masonic credits, or affiliations I am a 32 degree Scottish Rite member. Over the years I have found Mr. Hall’s books and lectures extremely interesting. He always provoked thought and kept
    one wanting to be exposed to more. It was my loss to never have met or listened to him in person. His work opens eyes and makes one think of so many things. He exposed us to so much wisdom and knowledge. How we perceive, or use this knowledge is up to each person. The tools of reasoning, choice, and conclusion making. As well as how we use the knowledge, are tools God granted us. Thank you for the wonderful site. And for sharing Mr. Hall, to future generations. Well done.

  5. As a whole I question everything. . It drives my life to places most people do not want to look. Finding this site has been a blessing. Manley’s writings are the most information of all the things I have read. I do not join organizations, but I appreciate this place. Manly Hall is my favorite Freemason.

  6. This should be of the HIGHEST PRIORITY for the WEBSITE ADMIN out of respect for one of the greatest researchers!!!!!! change Jordan Maxwell’s link to “jordanmaxwellshow.com” it takes less than 60 seconds PLEASE!!!

  7. If anyone knows where I can purchase MPH’s video and audio lectures please email me and let me know, I have found a couple lectures on iTunes but I would like to find while series of his lectures

  8. I AM disturbingly amazed at the lack of interest most have in truth. I AM of no affiliation, race or religion, and will always be. I try to ignite thought and need for truth in those I am instructed to. All I engage with, seem to remain attached. Trying to Provoke another to see may very well initiate there path, but one MUST becarefull not to impede another from their personal path of knowledge, just plant the seed. I AM an unworthy master, and blessed to be. Ones journey MUST be their own. Not being affiliated to any particular craft you are still obligated not to hinder another by GIVING what they must know. Some hang so tightly to one or more physical wants they prevent themselves from hearing, yet so close….so complete truth and knowledge are unreachable to them. Distractions seem to have become the priority. A lot of the comments on even this board confirm this. I AM sad for my brothers that their need for truth is non existent. It is there yet they seem to have no desire to obtain it. Any of those who would like to have more I will friend on my facebook, nikkums bushido. As I know, only those ready will find their way there. Remember, what was taken away, never left, you must just remember.

  9. Dear Sirs… first of all congratulations for such a great website concerning M.P. Hall’s material.
    This note is to let you know that the link for Jordan Maxwell’s website featured here in this website is not the correct. The correct one is: https://jordanmaxwellshow.com/

    Thank you. 😉

  10. The Hanged Man is the human spirit which is suspended from heaven by a single thread. Wisdom, not death, is the reward for this voluntary sacrifice during which the human soul, suspended above the world of illusion, and meditating upon its unreality, is rewarded by the achievement of self-realization.”
    ? Manly P. Hall.
    What does this mean???

  11. Isn’t it great to hang out with like-minded people! A searcher all my life, now 73 I’m delighted, thru Jordan, to be reading all these wonderful writers.
    My family and friends think I’m potty, at at best misguided!
    Isn’t it odd that to most people, this knowledge is counter-intuitive?
    I’m a musician so i know about hard work with a higher intent – and we never arrive!
    I’d love to meet up with any like-minded persons living in The Midlands UK. I’m in Nottingham. Every Blessing to MPHall and Jordan – Imogen.

  12. Hi, I have a question. There are a lot of videos on YouTube by Manly P Hall. I would like to download these and upload them into my YouTube channel. I’m not sure if I’m required to get some sort of permission for this. Are you able to help ?


  13. Seeking to connect with support to ” word miracles” I am having with God and my angels and direction to share with others…

  15. I have fully remastered the “Astrotheology” series I got from you, and would love to hand the remastered versions back to you for your own distribution. As I work in radio full time, and as this is a rather historic project, seemed like a fine match of talent and subject matter. Audio is improved on average 400%. Do contact me, and I’ll transfer over these files via Dropbox, if it serves you. Thanks for making them available!

  16. To the person who asked where he can buy Manly Hall lectures, I don’t know but YouTube is full of many of them. I read the Secret Teachings of all Ages about 20 years ago and passed it on to a New Thought minister. In some ways I wish I had kept it because it is a book for the ages. Thank you to whomever has this site up. I have yet to look it over. I just found it. But thank you so much. I love Manly, he gives the human being hope. I was feeling a bit down tonight and found his Evolution: I beg to differ. Manly has a sense of humour. Thanks again.
