An interesting collection of Masonic writings – the so-called “pieces of architecture”- compiled over the years by the authors and presented in the Lodges to which they belong has been published by Angelo Pontecorboli Editore (Florence).
It is in fact a look at the works in a Masonic lodge, an example of the topics that are normally dealt with in the meetings of the Masonic lodges and which we hope will demonstrate, in particular to the more prejudiced laypersons, that the Masonic lodges not only do not represent “a danger to the Institutions” or to society, as so much bad press and specious detractors try to make us believe, but they are in reality a place of study and reflection on the nature of Man, on his eagerness for knowledge, on his continual search for a universal harmony that can only be achieved by strongly believing in the values of Freedom, Equality and Brotherhood by making them one’s own principles of life.
The reading of “Sotto gli auspice di Minerva” is therefore recommended not only for Freemasons, who can draw inspiration from the contents for their research and for interventions in their lodge, but also for laypersons, i.e. non-experts, who perhaps will thus be able to have a less prejudicial approach to Freemasonry and get closer to its centuries-old Tradition.
