Bro. J. Filardo, P.´.M.´.
Scotland has given the world more than good usquebaugh and uilleann music. It has given us Freemasonry…
And as early as 1250, the first Grand Lodge of Freemasons was established in Köln, Germany. But these were builders, like companies employed by the Catholic Church and the Crowned heads of the time.
However, we are, in fact, talking about the institution that we know today as Freemasonry.
Ultimately, everything boils down to Politics and Religion.
