Freemasonry: Ritual, Symbolism And Morality

nedjelja, 10. siječnja 2010.

Freemasons are members of the largest and oldest fraternity in the world. No one knows just how old it is because the actual origins have been lost in time. This group valued privacy and tolerance.
Masons conduct their meetings using rituals and each Jurisdiction has its own ritual. However, there are similarities among its Jurisdictions. The Freemasons rely on the architectural symbolism of the medieval Masons who actually worked in stone. One of the principal symbolic tools always found in a Lodge are the square and compasses. There is no general interpretation for these tools. Often a letter G is placed there, usually is said to represent God and/or Geometry. Their moral lessons are communicated in performance of a ritual in which a candidate progresses through degrees gaining knowledge and understanding of himself, his relationship with others and his relationship with the Supreme Being.
