The Lost Symbols of FreemasonryThe quest for the lost symbols of Freemasonry is about more than just forgotten relics from the Masonic past, it’s about uncovering the true meaning and purpose of the Craft. Over the centuries the symbolic system of Freemasonry has been modified by Grand Lodges and well-meaning Masons to the point where it’s impossible for the modern Mason to uncover the peculiar system of morality concealed within it. Many symbols were discarded altogether, while others were modified to suit various political agendas. Other, entirely new, symbols were added to either clarify or obscure certain secrets. What exists today is so far removed from what the founders intended that it would be almost unrecognizable to them.

The philosophical system envisioned by Freemasonry is hidden within allegories (sometimes allegories within allegories), and revealed through symbolism. Having the right symbols and the correct understanding of them is essential to understanding Masonic moral, political, and metaphysical philosophy
