Visit MasonicDictionary.com

Wbro. Stephen Dafoe, editor of Masonic Magazine and Templar History Magazine has relaunched a terrific resource for Masonic education. MasonicDictionary.com is billed as "a daily lesson in Masonic Education," and includes 550 entries and 1200 pages from some of the best sources of Masonic history and wisdom of the 19th and 20th centuries, especially from long out of print issues of The Builder Magazine.

As a part of the dictionary, the Knights of the North contributed 26 essays on a variety of Masonic topics, and we have our own section.

I was privileged to be allowed to participate in this project. If you are so inclined, check out Boring Our Members To Death, Whatever Happened To Masonic Pride, and a joint article with Brother Steve Schilling, Stated Meetings and Entered Apprentices. Don't just stop with those. Check them all out from Apathy to Zeal.

And many thanks to Stephen for providing this terrific resource once again. Masonic websites are in almost every case a money-losing, time-consuming sump of resources for the lone webmeister. Stephen has devoted hundreds of hours to his sites, and deserves much praise for his work.

  1. Thanks for telling us about it Brother Hodapp!

    Read your "Dummies" book...good stuff. Just got the second and can't wait to read it. Was actually recommended to me by the Grand Master of Maine before my raising last night!

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.
