Operative Masons continued into the 17thy century, as survivors of the medieval guild system, with its complex traditions and practices in which mutual aid was a prominent feature. Then late in that century men who were not professionally connected with biulding began to join the so-called Lodges of the Operative Masons... a notable event occurred in the year 1717 when the members of four London Lodges met at a tavern near Covent Garden and constituted themselves 'A Grand Lodge pro Tempore... in Due Form and... resolved to hold the Annual Assembly and Feast... All Freemasonry in existence today can be traced, through one channel or another, to the Grand Lodge of England thus constittued in 1717. "

"...[Freemasonry], which is banned in all Communit countries, in Roman Catholic Spain and Portugual, although not in Italy, continues to attract members on a worldwide scale. Its appeal clearly operates on two different levels. For some the attraction is obviously social... For others, however, Freemasonry's rituals, teachings and symbolism have a deeper and more spiritual current... Freemasonry is neither a religion nor a substitute for religion. It embraces all forms of religious belief which conceive of a Supreme Being and in a Lodge men of all creeds meet in complete amity. Its rituals, which in some respects resemble short Morality Plays or moral charades, simply reflect in symbolic terms concepts of idealism, humanity, charity and fraternity. "

The origins of the movement probably lie in twelfth century Europe. There are two major divisions: the Old Charges which date 1390 and 1400; and The Masonic Word, which is a Scottish institution of obscure origin. From the eighteenth century there developed 'Speculative Masonry' or modern FREEMASONRY. The Grand Lodge was formed in 1717 to co-ordinate other Lodges... The movement places considerable emphasis on social welfare activities... "
