This book examines the origins, development and iconography of Freemasonry, to throw light on its important role in European and American cultural development. A particularly important period is the Eighteenth century, when Freemasonry could count amongst its ranks Mozart, Washington and Voltaire. Professor Curl shows how art, architecture, design, theatre and music owe a great debt to the traditions of Freemasonry. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
