What is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its moral lessons and self-knowledge by a series of ritual dramas - a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge. These follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons' customs and tools as allegorical guides.
