The Mysteries of All Nations

"Freemasonry is not, as some authors seem to think, a scion snatched with a violent hand from the ancient mysteries; but, in reality, the original institution from which all the mysteries were derived; because, from their agreement in certain essential points which could only be obtained from a system of purity and truth, we derive ample testimony to establish the fact, that the mysteries of all nations were originally the same, and diversified only by the accidental circumstances of local situation and political economy."

George Oliver, Signs and Symbols Explained; 12 Lectures
