Freemasonry & the Enlightenment

James Stevens Curl

Freemasonry and the Englightenment

This wide-ranging, thorough and beautifully illustrated study of Freemasonry's influence on Western culture puts into context a movement that has left a significant legacy. Professor Curl shows how aspects of Freemasonic ideas have permeated the design of buildings, parks, gardens, and cemeteries, as well as other art-forms from literature to the performing arts. Some of Mozart's music has close connections with the Craft, and many of the stage-sets associated with his operas are reproduced, together with very detailed captions. The Glossary explains some of the complex ideas and iconography of Freemasonry, and the extensive Bibliography contains an enormous amount of material to stimulate further research.
