What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is a worldwide fraternity founded on the principles of brotherhood, with no affiliation to any particular religion, sect or creed. It thus gives the opportunity for all of its members to meet on a common ground, exercising the utmost tolerance and understanding of all genuinely held beliefs. While freemasonry requires an acceptance of a 'Supreme Being' or 'Creative Principal' (commonly referred to as 'God' although known by other names, for human language is inadequate to fully explain what we mean), it leaves the individual free to interpret these archetypal ideas according to their own personal understanding and development. Freemasonry offers an opportunity to uncover the truths it teaches symbolically.
