A Masonic Dictionary…to help Masons and Non-Masons A Masonic Dictionary…to help Masons and Non-Masons The Latin accipere, receive, was from ad, meaning "to," and capere, meaning "take," therefore to take, to receive. The passive apprenticeship and initiation, but after the participle of this was acceptus. In Operative Masonry members were admitted through course of time, and when the Craft had begun to decay, gentlemen who had no intention of doing builders' work but were interested in the Craft for social, or perhaps for antiquarian reasons, were accepted" into membership; to distinguish these gentlemen Masons from the Operatives in the membership they were called the "Accepted." After 1717, when the whole Craft was revolutionized into a Fraternity, all members became non-Operatives, hence our use of the word in such phrases as "Free and Accepted Masons." Filius is Latin for son, filia for daughter; the prefix "af" is a form of the Latin ad, meaning to add to.

Fonts for Bible with Cantillation Marks Back to Bible with cantillation marks. The normal Hebrew fonts supplied by Microsoft with Windows do not support cantillation marks or even some of the standard non-cantillation marks of Hebrew. If you see black blocks between the letters instead of cantillation marks, you need to install a special Unicode font that does support Hebrew fully. Many free Unicode Hebrew fonts seem to be in development and several good ones are already available.
