In the Middle Ages, all crafts had their own guilds and secret passwords to help its members hold at least a minimum of work to prevent exploiting them. One such group of craftsmen were Freemasons who have traveled from one country to another, helping to build churches and cathedrals.

Close to the object being built and temporary dwellings, built by the 'Lodge', where they spent their leisure time. As the cathedral built by less, so the Masons began to receive honorary members to increase the number of their associations. During the seventeenth century, the masons who are really engaged in a masterful job, expelled from his title of 'free', while the 'theoretical' members took the title of 'free and accepted' and have won the pomp and ceremony of ancient religious orders.
In 1717 they established the first Grand Lodge in England. In 1725th a group of English noblemen, who resided in Paris, founded the lodge and there will soon be Freemasonry spread throughout Europe. One prominent member was Count Cagliostro (1743-95), he claimed that he could make gold, miraculous healing, sexual power and extend life to 5557 years. He ruled Lyon Lodge and formed his own branch of "Egyptian Masonry" which included the women's lodge, over which was chaired by 'Queen of Sheba'.

A Freemason, may become a grown man who believes in the existence of a supreme being and the immortality of the soul - and can pay a membership fee.
The very person may seek to join, in a way suggesting that future candidates would have gladly received as a member if he so desires. Initiation or entry into society is very dramatic and filled with symbolism.
