    The meaning of being a freemason?

    I'm not really sure what you're after but we don't recruit people. We like men to come to us because they have decided they want to become a Freemason. It may be better if you ask some specific questions that we could see about trying to answer.

    The Criticality of our Individual Degrees and Catechisms

    For clarity that is a modern version where someone has updated the language of the originals, here's one from 1874 that would accompany the degree ceremonies from Perfect workings: It's interesting to note that all of the different variations of the...
