Hiram Abif

The magic words of professional magician Thurston [1869-1936], Hiram Abif is a name from a legend studied in Freemasonry concerning “freedom of speech, conscience, and thought.” The legend became a central part of Masonic ritual in 1730 [Paul M. Bessel, “The Hiram Abif Legend in Freemasonry,” 1999].
