This work is a testimony. The authors share their experience, reflections and also their doubts concerning Freemasonry. This book gives us a different look at what Freemasons do in their Lodge and a real sense of the initiatory quest.

It will help those who wish to enter Freemasonry by answering their main questions.

“Our main moral responsibility is to leave to future generations a world which is worth living in.” (Kenzaburô Ôe)

FOREWORD: Another book on FREEMASONRY? Whatever FOR?


More than 11,000 books already have been published on this subject. Everything that could possibly be said or written about Freemasonry, true and false, has already been published. For some people, Freemasons are on a par with the Illuminati, “they slit the throats of virgins during satanic rituals on Friday evenings” or “they govern the world in secret and have a finger in every financial scandal”. For others, all the folklore is only a nostalgic and outmoded manifestation of former times. Rare are those who recognise in the Royal Art (the name used until the 18th century as a synonym for Freemasonry) a method of spiritual awakening and, beyond that, a path that leads to wisdom and temperance.

Certain questions come up again and again:

– Why does Freemasonry attract so many important and famous people?

How many of them are there really and, more importantly, who are they?

What secrets are they hiding and what power do they really have?

In this climate of mystery, each applicant prepares his or her candidature as though it were a selection test to Harvard. In short, being admitted to the Freemasonry is a great honour and to be turned down is considered a serious humiliation by certain applicants.

Some wish to join Freemasonry in the belief that their membership will give them superpowers, an awesome address book and especially the privilege of belonging to the cast of the powerful of this world.

Too often, however, their disappointment begins on the very day they are initiated.

There are thousands of Masonic Lodges currently active in Europe alone. How many Brothers or Sisters do you think would state that they have used their Lodge to boost their social or financial career? Very few in fact, for a Lodge is most certainly not the best place to carry on business. You would need to ask golf players, former students of the Harvard Business School or graduates of Oxbridge, in order to realize how little political influence Freemasonry now has, especially when you compare Freemasonry to other networks which are much better at organising social and financial success. Under the Third Republic in France[1], practically every second politician was a Brother.

[1] From September 1870 to July 1940
