In France, the modern speculative Freemasonry date from 1728 with the establishment of the Grand Lodge of France. It was originated from the medieval operative masonry of stone carvers and builders of Gothic cathedrals.
Freemasons left a great legacy (drafting the new Civil Code, the abolition of slavery, the empowerment of women and compulsory school).
Even today, we can see a lot of Freemasonic symbols on the streets of Paris and on the buildings’ façades bearing traces of masonic presence.
The tour on this topic will be completed with a visit to the French Museum of Freemasonry, rue Cadet in Paris.
