Masonic Initiation: The Business in which We are Engaged

May 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Livingston Masonic Library Live Lecture Series Presents!

May 23rd at 7:30pm

This talk is a comparative analysis of the ancient Mystery Schools and the Fraternity of Freemasonry. Thomas will explore the meaning of “initiation” and its aim of realizing one’s potential as a human goal.  He will consider the common characteristics of the Mysteries and Freemasonry, especially secrecy, oaths and brotherhood. Finally, Tom will elaborate on the key components of each society: things recited, things shown, and things performed.
