This thorough and beautifully illustrated study of Freemasonry’s influence on Western culture puts into context the legacy of Freemasonic concepts. This work extends and develops the research and scholarship of the author’s previous book, The Art and Architecture of Freemasonry (1991), an immensely useful (and sane) introduction to a field often beset by sensationalism.

This book investigates those concepts which permeated architecture and design as well as other art-forms from literature to the performing arts including Mozart’s music. The Glossary explains complex ideas and iconography of Freemasonry; the Bibliography contains materials to stimulate research.
