This book is aimed at all those who would like to have more details about the world of Freemasonry, both young Freemasons and non-Masons. Our intention is to present and demystify and uncover Freemasonry and Freemasons.
Many books have been written both on the good and bad sides of Freemasonry, its beneficial effects on an individual’s spiritual development as well as its, allegedly, satanic impact on the world.This book does not take sides but tries to contemplate on the roots of this cultural and historical phenomenon and its passage to the present time. Although it is a high-speed journey on the Masonic bandwagon, our focus falls not only on the "drivers" and "passengers" but on the "scenery" as well. Freemasonry was treated by authorities and the profane world with different vigour and rigour at different times. However, the reader will be acquainted with the Masonic reality in a small Central European community throughout the last 120 years and the everyday activities of Freemasons there, without any "shrouding in mystery".
We do not attempt to provide answers to all questions of Freemasonry due primarily to the rather limited geographical scope of its main topic and the size of this book i.e. Freemasonry in Sombor, a typical South Central European city with a 120-year-old Masonic tradition stretching from 1897 to 2017, hoping it will arouse further interest in searching for more information.Proofread by Mr László Vári.
