The 1886 Bulletin of the Supreme Council for France Concerning Joseph Cerneau

By Jean B. Bagary
Foreword by Michael R. Poll

Who was Joseph Cerneau? What was the “Cerneau” Supreme Council? Was Joseph Cerneau a “regular” or “irregular” Mason? Why did “Cerneau” Masonry cause such problems in the United States? These are a handful of the many questions asked by Masons concerning Joseph Cerneau, a figure at the center of a long-debated Masonic controversy. In 1886, Albert Pike, through the Supreme Council, SJUSA published this translation of a bulletin from the Supreme Council for France concerning Joseph Cerneau. It is a clear rebuff of Cerneau. The foreword, written by Michael R. Poll, tells another side of the story. Together, this is a fascinating account of Scottish Rite Masonry in its early, formative years.
