On  the history of Freemasonry

Masonic tradition is lost in the mists of time and apparently accompanies the world-to-be in its change. However, from the perspective of history, it appears that phrase was imposed in debates only at the end of the nineteenth century, when it became obvious that there is a chain of large initiates, philosophers and inspired leaders. Through their decisions and actions, they imposed paradigm changes and thus an expanding consciousness and collective consciousness. So we might say that Freemasonry is not and should not be preoccupied with the past or his future but, particularly, to exist fully in the ephemeral moment, to be truly inside the continuous present.


Many researchers, be they more or less initiated, pounce on the events of 1717, concluding hastily that here begins the history of the modern Freemasonry, the Freemasonry with great lodges, the workshop being spiritual master and lacking its own operative method regarding the inner challenge that each and every aspirant has to pass. Soon, these researchers realize that they have entered into an impossible maze because there is clear evidence of the existence of Masonic lodges long before the time referred, not to mention some similar traditions or similar preceding the current form.

Obviously, the thesis of the Masonic traditions by transforming an initiatic structure different initiatives cannot be proved with documents; while no argument to the contrary, that the Freemasonry would be born in 1717 cannot be thoroughly motivated and supported. Given all this but also because the history of the phenomenon reveals many cases where a new initiating order takes through trasvazare certain factors of esoteric nature from older doctrines, those who investigate our traditions frequently operate with assumptions, interpretations and bits of truth.

In the center of the Masonic tradition there is the metaphysical doctrine having as essence a representation of God, the Great Architect of the Universe, the Absolute Principle. Ignoring or renunciation, be it even in part, to briefly above reasoning is likely to cancel the whole aura of sacredness that our Order descends majestically nowadays.

For all these reasons, we found it necessary to abstain on categorical conclusions on the history of Freemasonry. However, we proclaim and support the right of each brother to inform and identify personal studio by his own conviction in this matter. As such, on our website we will establish a virtual library containing reference works in this problematic.
