Frederick Bligh Bond (1864 -1945) an architect by trade, was employed by the Church of England to undertake the excavations at Glastonbury Abbey. A Freemason, Theosophist, and member of both the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia and the Society for Psychical Research, he applied the skills normally associated with psychism and Spiritualism, in addition to the more conventional archaeological and historical means when executing his task. This brought down the wrath of the Church hierarchy, who eventually dismissed him. His dismissal did not however prevent him from writing extensively about his findings at the Abbey. "The Glastonbury Scripts" are a series of nine booklets edited by Frederick Bligh Bond containing various automatic writing communications concerning Glastonbury Abbey and its history, this being the first edition of what became the third Volume of that series. The Scripts carried on his account of his work at the Abbey, and the psychical investigations that oft-times guided it record of prediction previously told by Bond in a series of earlier books: The Gate of Remembrance (1918), The Hill of Vision (1919), and The Company of Avalon (1924).
