Book with introduction by Jaki to be on TV tonight

According to the TV listings, the "National Geographic" channel will have a special on "Freemasonry" tonight at 9PM (Eastern).

I have it on good authority that one of the reference works to be mentioned is Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism by Augustin Barruel, reprinted by Real View Books.

While any of these items, "Freemasonry" or Barruel or Jacobinism or Real View Books are interesting in themselves, I mention this particularly because this reprint has an introduction by Fr. Stanley L. Jaki, the theologian/nuclear physicist, a prolific writer and expert in the history of science.

See here for more about this book.

Funny, I think I've heard of him before...ashame I missed it. Will have to keep an eye out for a rerun.

It's supposed to be on again, but I do not have the schedule (hee, hee) to refer to.

I was told that there was only the barest mention of the book, so it was somewhat disappointing.

But not to worry. We'll do more mentioning, of GKC as well as SLJ... right here - so stay tuned.
