SORT BY Relevancy
18th century London was a place replete with social stratification. Feudalism had long ago given way to democracy in name but perhaps not by much. Monarch and aristrocracy continued to experience privileged indifference to poverty described for us by Ezra Pound and Charles Dickens. Of course we would expect masonic notions of equality and universality would be suppresed to avoid repercussions.
Upper Canada was another story. Our history is a tale of subtle high minded influence of nation builders. Early Canadians had a chance to correct the social injustice of British life with conviction to fight for rights defended by the republicans of France and the United States but with a tinture of loyalty they did not have. The new Dominion was not about to squander a chance to correct social imbalance. Jessica Harland-Jacobs makes a strong argument that freemasonry aided the spread of the British Empire. I am also willing to suggest chartered masonic lodges effected the bigger picture in Canada. Masonry embraces ethics and principles that are the basic elements of social progress. Canadian women gained the right to vote in 1918 becoming legal entities in Canada through the parliament of Britain. Public schools flourished in Upper Canada and later, prairie farmers lead the charge for universal health care. These are aspects of common good- an ethical pillar of freemasonry-greater than the sum of parts. As we look into the mirror of Canadian history we see self interest, we see power and we see the triumph of humble men building a peaceful nation of tolerance. Does freemasonry have an obligation internal and external to continue the legacy?
On Thursday, September 26, 2013 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on The Legacy of Mithraism on Magick and Masonry. We will trace the origins of the Mithra sect from the ancient Persian Magi -- an offshoot of Zoroastrianism -- through the Greco-RomanMiddle East, into the mileau of classical Alexandria, where its western branch acquired a cosmology that was largely Hermetic. In fact one might say that the Greco-Roman Mithra sect was ritualized Hermeticism. For several centuries it rivaled Christianity but was eventually overcome when emperor Constantine, himself a Mithraite, made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire for practical political reasons. The Mithra sect was an elite, initiatory, all male religious fraternity that extolled honor, bravery and loyalty. Great for the Roman army but not for the downtrodden masses. Its influence on the later Masonicfraternity is obvious. Mithraism had seven initiatory degrees so similar to Crata Repoa that John Yarker called his Crata Repoa degree in Rite of Memphis "The Sage of Mithras." We will unravel the complex astrological symbolism of the "Tauroctony", the ritual slaying of the bull, the mystery of the strange lion-headed god, and the theory that the secret communion meal was the old Persian-version of Soma. Our main text reference will be D. Jason Cooper's "Mithras" (1996) with references to Franz Cumont's (1912) "Astrology and Religion Among the Greeks and Romans" and "Mushrooms, Myth & Mithras" by Carl A. P. Ruck,et allia (2011). So, if you want to follow us down into the underground temple of the Mithraeum for a look into the origin of many of our rites and degrees, then tune in and we'll lift the veil.

Masonic Companion started intending to bring thoughtful conversation to freemasons whereever they be.
There is so much about Craft freemasonry that is not understood. Society and science evolved in antient cultures; China, Mesopotamia, Persia and eventually into Europe,Britain. In Britain, they executed the king hoping to end subjugation, not suspecting beheading Charles would leave a leadership vaccum. History has not been kind to the civilian ruler Cromwell as people realized monarchy defined could define a nation and yet be under civil control. This didn't protect the French Kings until they were stopped by revolution. It was a heady atmosphere in the day; Church nor King no longer determined truth. Science and philosophy came out of the attic and helped define humanism.
You would think 21st century thinkers would be rid of it but we are still plagued by the offshoots of 19th Darwinian theory; terribly distorted, into racist and imperialist interests. Herbert Spenser, pulled Darwins theory apart to give us a simplistic, incomplete versions still popular today; social darwinism and survival of the fittest but no one cares. We can't help but notice the basis of capitalism in this; using the moral highground of survival vs extinction to sanitize power; an interesting experiment but one that fails to deliver on the trickle down promise.
How could we possibly claim thoughts so forceful could be repressed by a philosophical barrier? I refuse to accept that freemasonry espouses escapism. Our landmarks reveal so much about us, particularly that we exist to promote the common good. Are we about surviving unfairness or working toward the day when the common good becomes is more than a landmark?

Sir deriva do francês antigo Sieur (ele própria uma contração de Seigneur que significa "senhor"), a partir do adjetivo latino sénior. No protocolo formal,Sir é o estilo correto para um cavaleiro ou um barão (o posto da nobreza do Reino Unido logo abaixo todos os pares do reino), usado com o nome próprio do cavaleiro ou com o nome completo, mas não com o sobrenome apenas.
Um cavaleiro (/ na?t /) é uma pessoa dotada de um título honorário de cavaleiro por um monarca ou outro líder político para o serviço ao monarca ou país.
A palavra cavaleiro, de Inglês antigo cniht ("menino" ou "servo"), é um cognato da palavra alemã Knecht ("servo, escravo").

Sir derives from the Old French Sieur (he own a contraction of Seigneur meaning "lord"), from the Latin adjective senior. In formal protocol Sir is the correct style for a knight or a baron (the rank of nobility from the UK just below all peers of the realm), used with the proper name of the rider or the full name, but not with the surname only.
A knight (/ na?t /) is a person with an honorary knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the monarch or country.
The word knight, from Old English cniht ("boy" or "servant"), is a cognate of the German word Knecht ("servant, slave").
