In the years leading up to the French Revolution, Count Alessandro Cagliostro won fame and suffered ridicule for sincerely believing in the magical powers conferred by his Egyptian Rite of Freemasonry. The Masonic Magician tells the story of his celebrity and his abrupt downfall when he was arrested and condemned to death by the Inquisition. The book also features the first English translation of the Egyptian Rite, followed by a commentary offering an interpretation of its symbolism.
