Erik's Masonic Journey

Tue, 15 Aug 2000

I am a Fellowcraft Mason! I don't know exactly how to describe the Fellowcraft ritual. It was similar to the Entered Apprentice, but at the same time so much more beautiful, involved, and intricate. I wish I could do it over and over again, as there are a million details I'm sure I missed. The ritual team was excellent. Medford Lodge #103 brought a man down from Selma for the long spoken parts in the second half of the degree. Speaking of Medford Lodge #103, it is a very beautiful place. I met many Masons who all happened to be very friendly folks.

I am interested in finding books about the Fellowcraft degree. There is so much symbolism and allegory in the degree ritual that I have a tough time remembering all of it, and I am curious to read others' interpretations. If anybody has any book recommendations, please drop me an e-mail and let me know!

Well, now it's time for me to share some links. First on my list is an excellent and informative website about Masonic music. This site contains information about dozens of composers who have created music related to Masonic ceremonies or degrees or ideas. It is definitely worth checking out! Secondly, the Undernet Masonic Resource Center contains a very sizeable and informative collection of papers about Freemasonry, as well as nice graphics, an attractive layout, and plenty of great content. Those interested in esoteric Freemasonry will also be very pleased with their library.

Two lodges are on my list of links for today. The first is Dresden Lodge #90, F&A.M.. Their website is very nice looking, but requires JavaScript to work properly. Once there, make sure to check out their excellent collection of Masonic clip art and excellent photograph collection. The second is the very oddly numbered Lodge Mother Kilwinning #0 in Kilwinning, Scotland. This lodge claims to date back to the 14th or 15th century, and its history is more interesting than any single lodge's I've read so far. Please go check it out!
