Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organizations.
In the past, it was defined as “a system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.”
Freemasonry instills in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness.
Today, Freemasonry is defined as “an organized society of men symbolically applying the principles of operative Masonry and architecture to the science and art of character building”.
