Available in Stock
According to this in-depth and bold survey, architecture and symbolism played a central role in the identity and expression of Freemasonry throughout its rapid expansion during the Enlightenment. Curl takes in garden architecture, landscapes, lodges, tombs, even the music of Mozart, on his journey through 18th- and 19th-century Britain and Europe, attempting to reveal Freemasonic influence and iconography within their structures. First published in 1991, this expanded edition includes a preface by Andrew Prescott.
