      Beyond this, few people outside of the fraternity truly understand the impact of Masonry in America. I participate in a book club whereby we have been studying the history of the United States, from the Revolutionary War to today where we are studying . Under the articles of Confederation, two other ideas basic in Masonry were introduced into American government. A review of the origin and history of the craft masonry reveals that one of the purposes of the organization was to train apprentices to be master workmen.

    Masonry reminds its members over and over again of the importance of these qualities and education. It lets men associate with other men of honor and integrity who believe that things like honesty, compassion, love, trust, and knowledge are important. In some ways, Masonry is a support group for men who are trying to make the right decisions. "The common gavel is an instrument made use of by operative Masons to break off the rough and superfluous parts of stones, the better to fit them for the builder's use; but we, as Free. and Accepted Masons, are taught to make use of it for the more noble and glorious purpose of divesting our hearts and consciences of the vices and superfluities.

    Freemasonry Defined What is the definition of Freemasonry? In old England, it was defined as "a system of morality, veiled in allegory (or a story) and illustrated by symbols." Masonry is a course of moral instruction which uses both allegories and symbols to teach its lessons. The Meaning of Masonry by W. L. Wilmshurst [] A look inside the symbolism of Masonry.

A Few Notices of the History of Free Masonry in Several Parts of Europe, Asia, and : Samuel Etheridge, The history of Freemasonry encompasses the origins, evolution and defining events of the fraternal organisation known as covers three phases.

Firstly, the emergence of organised lodges of operative masons during the Middle Ages, then the admission of lay members as "accepted" masons (a term reflecting the ceremonial “acception” process that made non stone masons members of.

Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that grew out of centuries-old European trade guilds. Freemasons (or Masons) meet in lodges, where they ritually reenact a story based on the brief biblical account of a man named Hiram, whom Solomon commissioned to work on the temple in Jerusalem.

1 During the reenactment, Masons advance by degrees, using handgrips, key words, and special clothing. A few notices of the history of Free Masonry in several parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa by: Harris, Thaddeus Mason, Published: () A sermon, preached at Wrentham, Oct.

10th, Smith, in his chapter on the antiquity of Masonry in Britain, says, that "notwithstanding the obscurity which envelopes Masonic history in that country, various circumstances contribute to prove that Free-Masonry was introduced into Britain about Years before Christ." It cannot be Masonry in its present state that Smith here alludes to.

fitably taught practical masonry. The higher degrees form the subject of other volumes. They are not common; are denominated orders of chivalry ; and but very few Masons go beyond the Royal Arch Degree.

The great subject of Masonry is Solomon’s Temple. The two first secret words are Boaz and Jachin, the pillars of the porch of that Size: 2MB. The art of masonry originated when early man sought to supplement his valuable but rare natural caves with artificial caves made from piles of stone.

Circular stone huts, partially dug into the ground, dating from prehistoric times have been found in the Aran Islands, the 4th millennium bce, Egypt had developed an elaborate stonemasonry technique, culminating in the most extravagant. InG. Knoop and G. P Jones two men from my home county of Lancashire England in their book The Scope and Method of Masonic History did attempt to stress the importance of the Scottish contribution to the making of Freemasonry.

However, they studied it from their decidedly English perspective and still regarded Freemasonry as an English. For purposes of this website, we will limit our discussion of history, lore and legend, and focus on the basic "doctrinal" positions of today's Freemasonry - although the "basics" can even be hidden or misunderstood in various parts of the Order.

Freemasonry - Some Basics Freemasonry is referred to by numerous names. Mason’s View: The Bible is only one of several “Volume(s) of Sacred Law,” all of which are deemed to be equally important in Freemasonry. The Bible is an important book, only as far as those members who claim to be Christians are concerned, just as the Koran is important to Muslims.

James Anderson (d. ), a Scottish Presbyterian minister, wrote the Book of Constitutions in which he contrived the "traditional" albeit spurious history of freemasonry. Masons hold that God, "the Great Architect," founded freemasonry, and that it had as patrons, Adam and the Patriarchs.

tre, P. of England, is the most complete manual and history of English Masonry, arid the most approved. It has the authority of a Book of Constitutions in England, and forms the basis of the Free Mason's Monitor, and of Dalcho's Ahiman Rezon, and contri­ butes largely to every manual of Masonry published in America.

The Egyptian Pyramids, the Colosseum in Rome, India's Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China - some of the world's most significant architectural achievements have been built with masonry.

Through civilization, architects and builders have chosen masonry for its beauty, versatility, and durability. Masonry is resistant to fire, earthquakes, and sound. A common reaction to this idea is that Masonry is a “Society with Secrets”, rather than a “Secret Society”, but this is equally confusing.

There are aspects to Freemasonry that are kept and taught to only those who go through the initiations and ceremonies so as to keep them in a proper perspective and contextual meaning. However, Masonry does philosophically oppose tyranny, dictatorship, and any destruction of human dignity, basic human rights, and the free exercise of religion.

Nonpolitical, nonsectarian: One of the first rules of Freemasonry forbids the discussion in Masonic meetings of religious matters and politics — topics likely to cause personal arguments. Masonry has always been a top choice for a reason. It is resistant to fire, earthquakes, and sound.

Its materials come together to create an artistically durable structure that withstands centuries of normal wear and tear. They say history repeats itself.
