As I decided to explore Freemasonry as a tribe, I should get more info about it.

Of course, Wikipedia was a starting point:
Then I have got to the website of the United Grand Lodge of England:

The first thing you can find there is the question which bothers most of the people who hear about them not only for the first time:

Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby.

But despite the answer is being full and clear, I still had loads of questions about it:

  • Why do people join the Freemasonry?
  • Is Freemasonry a religious institution?
  • What is going on inside?
  • Why is there so much mystery around this society?
  • Is there anything undercover which is not opened for a general public?
  • Why are there so many conspiracy theories around Freemasonry?

So I will try to figure them out.

There is also a good video explaining what it means to be a freemason:

Another brief explanation of what is it all about you can find in the booklet:
