Origins of Freemasonry: Scotland’s Century, 1590-1710
David Stevenson (au)
Beginning in Britain, freemasonry swept across Europe in the mid-18th cent. in astonishing fashion yet its origins are still debated today. The prevailing assumption has been that it emerged in England around 1700. However, David Stevenson demonstrates that the real origins of modern freemasonry lie in Scotland around 1600, when the system of lodges was created by stonemasons with rituals and secrets blending medieval mythology with Renaissance and 17th-cent. history. This fascinating work of historical detection will be essential reading for anyone interested in Renaissance and 17th-cent. history, for freemasons themselves, and for those readers captivated by the secret societies at the heart of the best-selling “Da Vinci Code.” Illus.
