Description

The most detailed and authoritative text on the true meaning of the Masonic rituals. The principal contents of this book are the Official Emulation Lectures on the Three Degrees of Craft Freemasonry. These lectures deal with the description of the ritual of those Degrees along with their moral and symbolic significance and are of a formal nature, arranged as catechisms – that is by question and answer form.

The text can be studied at home or can be performed by two or more Brethren in open Lodge. Much evidence suggests that many sections of these lectures are as old as the degrees themselves. This book adds much to one’s enjoyment and understanding of Freemasonry.

Author Bio

Emulation Lodge of Improvement

The Emulation Lodge of Improvement meets every Friday at 6.15pm at Freemasons Hall London.

Emulation Lodge of Improvement first met on 2 October 1823, and is held under the sanction of Lodge of Unions No. 256 in the English Constitution. It was founded by two London lodges, Burlington and Perseverance, both of which still work emulation ritual today. The aim of the lodge is to preserve Masonic ritual as closely as is possible to that which was formally accepted by the newly formed United Grand Lodge of England in 1816 and as amended since.

In the earlier part the four ceremonies are worked weekly in rotation, the latter part being given up to sections of the lectures, except that on the 1st Friday in October and the last Friday in June a degree ceremony is worked in the first part and the ceremony of Installation is worked in the second. The Working of the Lodge is controlled by a Committee which is elected annually.
