Who are the Masons and what does their society believe in?



Although there are over six million members of this fraternity worldwide, with some extremely famous past members including George Washington, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Simon Bolivar, little is actually known about what they do.

As a mason himself in the early twentieth century Wilmshurst had first-hand knowledge of Masonic rituals and practices and here explains the symbolism behind it, its rites and beliefs, and ultimately why people become Masons.

From the various degrees that the hold, to their clothing that they wear and the lodges which they attend, Wilmshurst’s The Meaning of Masonry analyses multiple aspects of the organization. He provides a fascinating insight into the Masonic Order, uncovering the origins of their beliefs and placing them in the context of when they began.
