Short Description

This is a splendidly illustrated source on the history of Freemasonry in Austria during the 18th century, when the secret order was at its zenith. Joseph Baurnjöpel (1739–95) wrote the introduction of the work explaining the origins of the order, the “Harmony of Creation”, and “The Doctrine of Nature”. Four sections follow explaining the rituals and symbols of Freemasonry, along with the admittance of apprentices, their promotion to “journeyman” status, and finally the ritual for obtaining the dignity of a master’s rank. The ceremonial dress and other teachings are also detailed. The contents are illustrated by 24 full-page miniatures and numerous other illustrations.
