Film: The Scottish Key

A new film on the origins of Freemasonry has just recently been released in Europe, with a US/NTSC version promised soon. Written by Belgian researchers Tristan Bourlard and François De Smet, The Scottish Key assembles quite a lineup of Masonic scholars in its interviews: Andrew Prescott, Keith Moore, Roger Dachez, Jessica Harland-Jacobs, David Stevenson, Ewan Rutherford, John Hamill and Robert L.D. Cooper all appear in the film.

A glance through the Gallery section of the site shows a tantilizing selection of period reenactments and attention to detail, with images about the Craft you haven't seen a thousand times.

Anxiously awaiting a US compatible release.


  1. Brother Peter Taylor from Scotland had purchased a copy and wrote a few comments after watching it at LRUK.

    "I received and watched it yesterday! Simply brilliant and a very historic and unbiased account of the Origins of Freemasonry. Again many myths are put to bed! Every Freemason should obtain a copy!"

    Bro Taylor is quite a knowledgeable Bro and if he suggests it is good then I would certainly consider getting a copy.

  2. The researchers Tristan Bourlard and François De Smet are not franch but belgian. Thanks

  3. Thanks for the correction. It is fixed.


Kindly sign your comment posts. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers, as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don't recognize you or if I'm in a grumpy mood.
