Heron Lepper, Librarian and Curator (1943‑52) of the United Grand Lodge of England, a man of great gifts and considerable achievement, wide learning, and with profound knowledge of Masonic history, built up over the course of years a most unusual file of Royal Arch information (neither now nor then normally available for reference), with possibly some idea that, given opportunity, he might one day turn it to account in the printed word.

Such a book, had he been spared to write it, would have been a classic, and mine would have remained unwanted and unwritten.

Inasmuch as the Articles of Union, 1813, use the term Holy Royal Arch' and the early Companions knew the Order by that name, it may be thought that the word Holy' ought to be included in the title and commonly used in the text. Holy' is thought to have been derived more than two centuries ago from the Antient' masons' motto, "Holiness to the Lord"; or to have been inspired by the Holy of Holies, the Inner Chamber of the Temple Sanctuary; or, again, to have reflected the religious, and even Christian, character of the primitive Royal Arch ceremonial.

But it is to be noted that it is only sparingly used nowadays in the accepted rituals, and ‑ a fact that has mainly influenced me ‑ it does not form part of the titles of the Grand Chapters of England, Ireland, and Scotland.

All Masonic authors of to‑day have reason to be grateful to these two remarkable founts of knowledge.
