A beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.
We have all heard this phrase, read it and said it outloud and know it to be the widely accepted definition of Freemasonry. But, have you stopped to ponder what this phrase truly means? I would enjoy hearing your thoughts. After hearing several, I will disect this phrase using the history and evolution of words and “redefine” it etymologically demonstrating that several may have missed its speculative meaning. You might be shocked or even surprised – but in the end I hope you may look at the words we say so elloquently in a way that they are meant to mean.
