600 YEARS OF CRAFT RITUAL
For those interested in the development of our Ritual, this is a MUST READ by one of the Craft's best and most respected writers, WBro. Harry Carr. This is a 30 minute course about the history and development of our Ritual. From a historical perspective, this is one of the most interesting and informative 17 pages of scholarly Masonic writing that you will ever read. No myths or legends, just the Truth.
THE REGIUS POEM
The oldest Masonic document yet to be discovered. It has been scholastically and scientifically dated to 1390-1430 AD. It is believed to be a copy of an earlier work, which itself appears likely to have been written by 2 individuals. It appears to have been written at a time of transition within Masonry from Operative to Speculative (?-1500). It is a most interesting document for a number of reasons. For instance, it is in the form of a poem, while most other ancient Masonic manuscripts that have been discovered are in prose. Most importantly, it addresses in its 15 Articles and 15 Points not only the desired moral and social duties and behavior of masons, but also lays down rules and regulations regarding the "operative" work of stonemasons. It was given the name "Regius" by two esteemed Masonic scholars because of its majesterial place of honor and importance among all other ancient Masonic manuscripts. It is now housed in the British Museum.
ANDERSON'S CONSTITUTIONS
This is the reprint of the "Constitutions" written by Bro. James Anderson in 1723. It was reprinted by Bro. Benjamin Franklin, and was the first Masonic document to be printed in North America.
