For many years the Musée belge de la Franc-maçonnerie [Belgian Museum of Freemasonry] has been an open window on the wider world. This sumptuously illustrated volume reveals a selection of the Museum's best and most representative exhibits, presented in their historical context by a team of specialists led by historian Jefffrey Tyssens. Themes include the history of Freemasonry and its interaction with society including the adoption of women as Masons, the ceremonies, traditions and symbolism of the lodges, the buildings and their architectural features, the role of Brussels lodges in the establishment of the Université libre de Bruxelles as well as the rampant anti-Masonic sentiment of the 1930s and the Second World War.
The various themes benefit from a fresh approach, including photographs specially commissioned for this fine study, which has been eagerly awaited by the public.
