The History Of Freemasonry And Masonic Digest To Which Are Added The Old Charges And Ancient Regulations As Collated By Order Of The Grand Lodge Of England In. In European history, the Middle Ages (or medieval period) spans the 5th to 15th centuries, from the collapse of the Roman empire to the beginning of the Renaissance. That’s a lot of history! So if you’re planning to step into your time machine and head off to medieval times, here’s what you’ll need to know before you go, in roughly.

      What Are The Freemasons? The Freemasons are a worldwide secret society. This organization evolved from the guilds of stonemasons and cathedral builders of the Middle Ages. Once the decline of cathedral architecture came to pass, the guilds transformed into lodges and started to become the Freemasons that we are familiar with today. An intriguing and scholarly summary of the history of masons to free masons. Since my great grandfather, my grandfather and my father were all masons (actual, operative, work with stone, brick and mortar masons) I was intrigued by the ties of this occupation to faith, honor and nobility/5(4).

    To travel, wine was a more recommendable drink than some unsafe water, especially in the cities. In the Middle Ages vehicles with wheels like carts were useful for short distances but they were not used on long trips due to the poor condition of the roads. The saddle was very much used: horse, mule or donkey. The history of the Freemasons has remained shrouded in mystery and suspicion. In this unbiased and classic account, the historian Jasper Ridley separates myth from truth and tells the real story of the society from its origins amongst the masons working upon the great cathedrals of the Middle Ages down to the modern-day.

The origins of Freemasonry are not known definitively. National organized Freemasonry began in with the founding of the Grand Lodge—an association of Masonic lodges—in England. However, Freemason societies have existed for much longer.

The most popular theory is that Freemasonry emerged out of the stonemasonry guilds of the Middle Ages. Often traced back to the stonemason guilds of the Middle Ages, freemasons were supposedly to be found among all the great minds of the Renaissance, including DaVinci.

The history of Freemasonry encompasses the origins, evolution and defining events of the fraternal organisation known as Freemasonry. It covers three phases.

From the Middle Ages, associations of stonemasons existed in both England and Scotland. It was in Scotland, though, that the first evidence appears of associations – or lodges – being.

Upholding Family Legacies. The tradition of joining Freemasonry runs deeply in thousands of families. It can be traced back to the middle ages.

Earlier Masons, i.e., George Washington, Winston Churchill, King Edward (& other Royal Monarchs), had one thing in common; their fathers and grandfathers before them were all Freemasons. Being part of the craft was considered a family legacy. Moreover, the Middle Ages as a time period is in itself an after-the-fact construct.

The Middle Ages got its name because in early history writing there was a time period of approximately one thousand years in between the collapse of the Roman Empire in the west and the Renaissance, and this time period needed a name.
