Freemasonry is an initiatic, humanist and progressive fraternity, whose
goal is the intellectual, moral and spiritual development of its
members, having a positive impact on the community, the search for
truth, the study of arts and sciences, and the exercise of beneficence.
Based on a long esoteric tradition and the study of symbolism, its core
beliefs are individual and collective work, freedom of thought and
human solidarity. Liberty, Equality, Fraternity is one of its mottos.The
Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry was born in France
and fully developed in Charleston, South Carolina to eventually become
the most practiced masonic rite in the world and one with the deepest
esoteric teaching.In this book, Fred Evrard puts in the hand of the
reader a synthesis of thousands of pages from 18th and 19th centuries
authors that not many of us has the time to study nowadays. From strict
history and legends to the pure Scottish Rite esoteric tradition, this
work will enlighten many aspects of the higher degrees of Freemasonry
for both, the masons and the profanes.
