How old is Freemasonry?

The history of modern Freemasonry is fairly understood, but once you get beyond the 1700's things get lost to the sands of time.

One of the beauties of Freemasonry is that it allows the member to stretch his mind to think about a variety of topics not typically explored in mainstream history. Some Masonic historians attempt to explain and look at the connections or possibilities in history that are often overlooked, especially to the recent past and into the not so recent historical world.

What is Masonry?

Freemasonry (Masonry) is the world's largest secular, fraternal and charitable organization. It teaches moral lessons and self-knowledge through participation in a progression of allegorical two-part plays.

Freemasonry is a male fraternity dedicated to the spiritual development of the initiate into a broader sense of the self. Masonry conveys this message through a series of progressive degrees initiating the candidate into a deeper level of membership. Ultimately, the raised Master Mason is given the metaphorical tools to further work on and develop their Masonic intuition.
