Lecture 15 Origins of the Royal Arch

By EComp John Hamill – 15 minutes
This is a paper that John Hamill delivered at Supreme Grand Chapter. The history of the Royal Arch is not well documented and there are many and varied explanations of its development in England in the 18th century. Here John Hamill considers a number of different narratives as to how the Royal Arch developed as we now know it considering its French and Irish origins.
