Masonic historians are quick point out some of the connections between Freemasonry and the cathedral builders, the Knights Templar, the Royal Society, Hermetic tradition, alchemists and Qabalaists, however the connection between Freemasonry and the Gnostic schools is often overlooked- even though it is perhaps the most prevalent.

The Manchester Masonic Research Collection. The Manchester Masonic Research Collection Some years ago the Library Collection of the Province of East Lancashire and of the Manchester Association of Masonic Research were combined and housed in the Library Room at Freemasons’ Hall in Manchester.
However, this room was continually in use for Masonic Meetings, rehearsals, and for other meetings, so that access to the collection was very difficult to arrange. In order to facilitate access to members of the Craft and the general public, it was decided to offer the collection to the John Rylands University Library. It was accepted with enthusiasm and the University Library undertook to fully catalogue this collection, funded by the Manchester Association of Masonic Research. In the interim the John Rylands Library has undergone refurbishment with the construction of a new Entrance Wing with the reception area, shop and café, with lift access to all floors.

All of this, of course, will naturally attract interested petitioning candidates, impress the initiates, and "puff-up" its members. Yet rather than instill the virtue of humility, as taught in the Bible, these aspects of the fraternity often build pride and unfortunately encourage an attitude of arrogance, and/or superiority. ANTI-MASONRY in the CONTEMPORARY WORLD. The Master of a Lodge - who, when addressed, is given the honorific title of "Worshipful" - presides over the meeting of Masons. The term is one of respect and has nothing whatsoever to do with "worshipping" of an individual.
It is an ancient word usage with a meaning similar to the honorific "Your Honour". The use of the word "worshipful" continues today in titles as "The Worshipful Lord Mayor of London" - who is not worshipped in the traditional sense nor is he necessarily a secular Lord - and is certainly not a Lord in a religious sense by anyone's stretch of imagination.

We revere the Catholic religion; it is as divine in its essence, as both were born to further the aspiration of the striving soul, and both have a message and a mission in the world not apparent upon the surface today, because man-made ceremonial as a scale has hidden the present articles to remove that scale and show the Cosmic purpose of these two Great Organizations, which are so bitterly antagonistic to each other.
