What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that traces its origins back to the late 16th or early 17th century. It is often described as a system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. Freemasonry places a strong emphasis on moral and ethical teachings, self-improvement, and brotherhood. Its teachings are conveyed through a series of ceremonies and rituals, often involving symbolic gestures and allegorical stories. These rituals are meant to encourage self-reflection, personal development, and a sense of community among Freemasons. Freemasonry is organized into independent lodges that are typically governed by a Grand Lodge at the regional or national level. Lodges provide a social environment for members to interact, discuss philosophical ideas, and engage in charitable activities. Freemasonry is not a religion, although it requires its members to believe in a higher power, often referred to as the Great Architect of the Universe.
