Masonic Blogs

A Spanish blog dedicated to ancient Masonry, its origins, rituals and meaning, as well as Freemasonry in general, hosted by Masonic author and translator Alberto Moreno Moreno.

For those interested in historical Masonic figures, and/or the meaning and origins of ritual and Freemasonry, this blog is a delight.

For us in the ‘Anglo-Saxon’ Masonic domain, we tend to only focus on the most well-known figures, or read about the predominantly English history and origins, rituals and rites.

Now, with the wonders of translation tools for websites, we can travel further afield and discover a breadth of Masonic information, history, people and places.

There may be overlaps of subject matter but to get the opinions and insights of those outside our respective countries and languages is invaluable.

Ancient Masonry offers in-depth insights on all aspects of Freemasonry, and the author Alberto Moreno Moreno introduces us to figures such as the Rev. F. De P. Castells, and explores almost every aspect of the Craft you can imagine in fine detail.

The posts are somewhat longer than some other blogs but are well worth taking time out to immerse ourselves in.

There are links to other useful resources, plus an extension of Alberto’s works, such as his superb ‘Looking for F. De P. Castells’.
