“The first group (The Order of the Quest) was dedicated to the restoration of the secret sciences through search and discovery.” – Orders of the Quest, The Holy Grail (Adept Series) by Manly P. Hall pg 7

“Years of research among the records of olden peoples available in libraries, museums, and shrines of ancient cultures, has convinced me that there exists in the world today, and has existed for thousands of years, a body of enlightened humans united in what might be termed, an Order of the Quest. It is composed of those whose intellectual and spiritual perceptions have revealed to them that civilization has a Secret Destiny…

…World democracy was the secret dream of the great classical philosophers. Toward the accomplishment of this greatest of all human ends they outlined programs of education, religion, and social conduct directed to the ultimate achievement of a practical and universal brotherhood. ” – The Secret Destiny of America by Manly P. Hall

“The  rise  of  the  Christian  Church brought  persecution  of  the  classical  intellectual  pattern’s  ideology, driving  the  guilds  into  greater  secrecy;    but  all  have  continued searching  for  human  happiness  under  a  variety  of  rituals  and  symbols; and they still exist, as the Order of the Quest. ” – The Secret Destiny of America by Manly P. Hall

“In Italy, the Illuminati sought for the pearl of great price hidden in the deep waters of mortal corruption. In northern Europe, the Knights of the Holy Grail dedicated their lives to the search for the chalice of the passion. Christian and Jewish cabalists pondered the letters of the scriptures to find the secret of the crown of splendors, and the Rosicrucians in their hidden houses used the Rose of Sharon as the symbol of brotherly love, a simple rearrangement of the letters r-o-s-e becoming e-r-o-s, the Greek God of love, Eros. All these groups belong to what is called The Order of the Quest.” -The Secret Destiny of America by Manly P. Hall

The JASON Society is a branch of the Order of the Quest.

“For practical purposes,  the Esoteric Schools, which championed the human came through the Dark Ages and the medieval world, may be considered together as the Orders of the Quest. The symbolism and rituals of these Fraternities of the Middle Ages involved a search for something remote or hidden.To succeed in the Quest, the knight or companion (disciple) must dedicate himself to the service of his afflicted and exploited fellow man. He must rescue his own soul the “fair maiden in distress” by overcoming the giants, dragons, demons, and wicked nobles who pillaged the countryside. As a reward for these noble pursuits, the Christian and godly knight could aspire to a heavenly vision of spiritual mysteries.” – Orders of the Quest, The Holy Grail (Adept Series) by Manly P. Hall pg 5

“After the decline of chivalry, the initiates of the Grail Church made use of the guilds and the trade unions to disseminate their convictions. As times became more liberal, these survivors of an ancient faith found poetry, drama, literature, and music excellent means for spreading the gospel of an ideal human state.” – Orders of the Quest, The Holy Grail (Adept Series) by Manly P. Hall Pg. 86


“When Benjamin Franklin went to France to be honored by the State, he was received too by the Lodge of Perfection, the most famous of all the French secret orders; and his name, written in his own fine hand, is in their record ledger, close to that of the Marquis de Lafayette. Franklin spoke for the Order of the Quest, and most of the men who worked with him in the early days of the American Revolution were also members.” – The Secret Destiny of America by Manly P. Hall

“…it is evident that he (Nostradamus) too belonged to the Order of the Quest. ” – The Secret Destiny of America by Manly P. Hall
