The Independent Magazine for Freemasons
By: Julian Rees
Much of the early ritual was in the form of a catechism – question and answer. One of the questions a modern Mason is asked during a Masonic ceremony is:
What is Freemasonry? to which the answer is A peculiar system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. Another question is Of what is the interior of a Freemasons’ Lodge composed? To which the answer is Ornaments, furniture and jewels.
That in a nutshell is what this book is all about. It is written by one of the foremost authors in this country on esoteric Masonry. It will appeal to any Freemason who is interested in finding out what lies behind the symbolism and allegory contained in the ritual. They will find that every aspect of the ornaments, furniture and jewels found in the Lodge Room has a profound meaning, which can with the help of this book be de-codified and interpreted and make Masonry that much more meaningful.
