Brother Jeff Peace, renowned Masonic historian, will be giving a lecture on Freemasonry and the history of secret societies.
Bro. Peace is a fourth generation Freemason from Atlanta, Georgia who has written many papers and essays dealing with the past, present and future of Freemasonry. Bro. Peace has relationships with many Freemasons throughout the world, and has accumulated a wealth of Masonic literature dealing with topics and information that many Freemasons have never been privy to.
The lecture will be open to the public and all Freemasons, whether recognized or not by any mainstream grand lodge system. Hopefully Bro. Peace's talk will dispel any myths about secret societies inspired by The Da Vinci Code book or movie, or by the History Channel, and will bring Freemasons of all systems together in understanding.
Some topics to be discussed include:
- Freemasonry is a peculiar (unique) system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols
- It is a Natural Philosophy (as opposed to occult)
- It is based on a Progressive Science (specifically mechanics and physics)
- It is dedicated to the purpose of creating a universal brotherhood of all mankind under the All-Seeing Eye of Deity
- Freemasonry is not a religion but a science
West Side Masonic Temple, located near Lake Erie, is an old, historic Masonic building dedicated, as is the lecture, to Enlightenment. Future lectures on Freemasonry and other subjects are planned.
