1. What is Freemasonry in life?

Freemasonry is based on the right of everyone to have their own religious, political or social beliefs. If an individual tries to work with dedication Mason to the welfare of the community. He committed his talents at the disposal of his fellow man.

2. Should you have a particular religion or faith in order to join?

No, principle is that every Freemason independently in search of truth. This includes that you yourself can know whether you adhere to a religion and if so what. However it is important that you do so in a way that you experience another fairly late in his perception of his faith.

3. Why does the order not allow women?

The Order does not allow women, as it is in the 18th century when the Order is not common result was that women became members of an order as ours. This is now different, but because our Order maintains relations with dozens of other Orders in other countries and between these orders was agreed that women are not allowed. If we do, then we lose the ties with orders of other countries in the world and we can brothers and lodges in these countries no longer visit. In addition, some brethren because men enjoy each other, often more open, if there were no women present. The same applies vice versa for groups with women only. Women can however join the mixed order "Le Droit Humain" and "The Order of the weavers' only allow women

4. What is the difference between Freemasonry and other spiritual or social movement?

The difference is the method and especially the accompanying rituals and symbols. Freemasonry is a school in the independent search for truth, without coercion imposed. Mason rejects the dogmatic and totalitarian ideas. He seeks what brings people together and take away what divides them.

5. Can briefly be explained what Freemasonry is all about?

Yes, but with some explanation about the background. The Renaissance marks the end of the cathedral building. The guilds gradually disappear. In Scotland and England hold the longest position. The practical, operational activity after the period of cathedral building more and more replaced by a symbolic construction. The deeper significance of the building is increasingly becoming the character of the teaching. The lodges lose their traditional meaning and are places where many things of spiritual nature and human endeavor are discussed. Mainly in England retain their traditions and guilds are also "not construction workers" allowed. The lodge (lodge) is a safe place to have found many things to exchange ideas freely. This is one of the most important foundations of modern Freemasonry explained. We freemasons seek truth about the meaning of life. Here we attach the greatest importance to freedom and tolerance. Personal responsibility is essential and from there to the Mason, each in his own way, contribute to the improvement of life and society. Belief in the value of man inspires Masons continued to work (building) to ourselves, that we for others and the world around us can make a difference.

6. For Masons is obviously symbolism of great importance, why?

The previous answer has become clear that Freemasonry originated in the building. The medieval architecture was characterized by using symbolism. We endeavor to freemasons symbolism ability to honor. This is some good reasons to give:

7. Is Freemasonry a secret society?

No, the brotherhood is not secret, it decided. In the past, Freemasons are persecuted in Europe for the last time during the second world war. Still, in certain European countries and / or in certain groups is not inconceivable that your disadvantage if you know that Freemasons are. Therefore, it is the prerogative of every Mason to determine who they let on to Mason. Another reason why we decided that the lodge has been a safe haven should be. That means we do not reveal what brothers have shared in confidence. All this applies specifically to the extent actions are not in conflict with the law. A final reason why the stamp "secret" of Freemasonry is that the secrets of Freemasonry can not be shared with people who do not already know the secret. Knowledge is not experience, or very difficult to capture in words. The experience of the ritual is much deeper than the plain text on paper.

8. Should I be asked to join?

No, you can apply through this website and/or if you know a Freemason personally ask him to help you with your application.

9. What is the difference between our lodge and other lodges?

Lodges are largely similar. Only the culture differences, because lodges a different tradition. Previously it was difficult to join if you do not already know a  Mason. In a box with many artists, it was logical that many new artists were artists simply because many artists know. Today, this is slightly different. Especially the times of meeting and the size of the lodge are the most obvious differences. Kosmopolis comes together several times a month, the spoken language is English and the Lodge has about 40 members.

10. Many more questions?

Yes, many questions we can answer. You can find more answers on this website. Additionally, you can contact our Lodge by email and will try to answer your question as good as we can.
