Available through Ignatius Press, Brisbane. Darkness Visible , Walton Hannah's study of Freemasonry, originally published in , has been reprinted for the first time in ten years. During the almost three hundred years since the foundation of the Grand Lodge, there have been not a few critiques of Freemasonry. The Catholic Church's long- standing condemnation of Freemasonry and its prohibition of Catholics becoming Freemasons is well known. Darkness Visible is arguably the best critique of Freemasonry in English and its reprint is opportune, especially given recent controversies regarding the undue influence of masonic membership amongst the judiciary. Hannah set himself the task of demonstrating that Freemasonry was incompatible, not merely with Catholicism, but with Christianity in general.

Mar 14, Kurt added it Recommends it for: people tempted to waste their time and money in a masonic order, or their family members. Freemasonry exposed is as repetitive and boring as could be. But Hannah makes clear that anyone with a whiff of biblical sense about him could not possible be a member of any masonic lodge.

Darkness Visible: A revelation & Interpretation of Freemasonry.
Addressing the book primarily to Anglicans, Hannah attempted to demonstrate that Freemasonry was incompatible with Christianity in general and avoided discussion of Masonic conspiracies. He did praise Freemasonry, saying that many Masons were of the "highest distinction and repute"  and commending Freemasonry's charitable works. Darkness Visible is in two sections. In the first section, various elements of Freemasonry are argued to be incompatible with Christianity. These include the harsh nature of Masonic obligations oaths and the religious aspects of Freemasonry. He also lists the condemnations of Freemasonry by various Christian denominations.
