Virtual Lecture: Martin Kern, “The Master’s Emblem”
August 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In many jurisdictions around the world, there is an emblem affixed to the apron of the Worshipful Master of a Lodge to distinguish him. The emblem continues to be used on his apron as a Past Master, or if he achieves additional rank in the Grand Lodge. The origin of the emblem can be traced to a Tuesday night in February of 1814, at a tavern, in London England. Wor. Bro. Marshall Kern has traced the origin of the Master’s emblem and explains the connections between geometry, scripture, and Masonic ritual.
