Meditations on Masonic Symbolism is Master Mason John R. Heisman’s reflective, scholarly exploration of the symbolism in the ritual of Freemasonry for Freemasons and non-Masons alike. While there is much to discover about the meaning of the hallmark Masonic symbols, there is nothing secret about Freemasonry's defining love for humanity. What Masonic symbols do reveal about the guiding purpose of a Masonic lodge is brought to light in Meditations on Masonic Symbolism, Master Mason John R. Heisman’s reflective exploration of the symbolism in the ritual of Freemasonry that reveals how they illuminate ancient knowledge about mankind’s relationship to God. A compilation of articles written for the author’s Masonic Lodge, Blackmer Lodge No. 442, in his year as Master, Meditations on Masonic Symbolism sheds fascinating new light on Freemasonry for Freemasons and non-Masons alike about the workings of this worldwide and ancient fraternity. Often described as a secret society, owing to its use of certain symbols, the essays in Heisman’s book help demystify Freemasonry for those who are interested in a deeper understanding of its mission. For instance, a variety of charities that are supported by Freemasonry and its millions of men and women are well known and easily recognizable. Children’s hospitals are operated by Shriners throughout the world. Speech therapy centers, educational grants, eye care foundations, and homes for the aged are funded and operated by Scottish Rite Masons, Knights Templar, and Grand Lodges everywhere they are situated. Heisman’s book explains Freemasonry as a fraternal organization with many groups, several of which are designed for boys and girls. All Masonic organizations have a charity and are devoted to the ideals of brotherly love, relief, and truth. Scholarly and philosophical, Meditations on Masonic Symbolism provides insight on recognizable Masonic symbols, such as the square and compass. From the significance of beauty in its architecture to the pillar of wisdom, each essay in this thoughtful collection reveals in detail the significance of the symbols and how they come together in this intricate and long contemplated belief system. In clear, accessible language, the book explains all manner of Freemasonry principles, including harmony, knowledge, brotherhood, unity, and more. While the rituals of the organization may only be attended by Freemasons, its lessons may be studied by anyone interested in subjects such as philosophy, comparative religion, liberal arts, and geometry. Meditations on Masonic Symbolism is a thought-provoking, elegant addition to any well-rounded library.
