Overview

A Dictionary of Freemasonry by Robert Macoy

Here is a remarkable history, encyclopedia and symbolic dictionary of Freemasonry all in one convenient volume and attractively illustrated with 300 nineteenth-century engravings.

The 600-year-old brotherhood of Freemasons (based on a 3,000-year-old tradition) is one of the most widely known fraternal organizations in the world. Robert Macoy compiled this work in order to present comprehensive information on Freemasonry in an accessible form.

        Using the full resources of the Fraternity available to him, Macoy sought to sort out the truth from a myriad of half truths, rumors, superstitions and interpretations. He presents the rise and problems of Freemasonry and its kindred association both ancient and modern.

        The "General History of Freemasonry," which begins this volume, is a fascinating introduction to a very complicated subject often fraught with vagaries. The two A-to-Z reference works that follow—one an encyclopedia with listings of terms, people, places, and events that make up the extensive history of the Freemasons, and the other a dictionary of symbols—contribute to making this a very complete sourcebook on Freemasonry.

From Aaron, the Abelites, and the All-Seeing Eye to the Year of Masonry, Zenith, and the Rite of Zinnendorf, this is a remarkable book on a subject that runs through the course of human history.
