Masonic Study Society  


Welcome to website of The Masonic Study Society.

The Masonic Study Society was established in 1921 to study the symbolism of Freemasonry in its various Degrees and to investigate its origins and meanings on anthropological lines. Special attention is devoted to the symbols and the mystical meanings of the various Degrees. Those aspects of Masonic research which are already dealt with by existing research bodies are avoided and endeavour is made to study the Craft and Royal Arch in particular in the light of similar systems, past and present, and on the lines of comparative religion, anthropology and folklore. The Society studies Freemasonry as a living organism, as well as on the basis of its documentation.
