  1. What a great read! I’m happy to hear the class and its contents have lead to some great discussions and educational experiences.

    I hope anyone who reads the article can join for the lecture tonight which is put on by Professor Moore and the AMNESP – 3/31 at 8pm, CAS 522.

    And if there are every any questions about Lodges or Freemasonry in general, I’m happy to field them.

  2. Just a quick note that I loved your article. One nitpick tho. It is about the Catholic church not liking the Masons bit:
    It is not about an anti-Trinitarian view point.
    There are lots of Protestant Christian (of trinitarian belief) that are members of Masonic Lodges. I would further point out that even countries or cultures mainly of polytheistic population can have members in a Masonic Lodge.

  3. I’m sorry that Mr. Barlow didn’t think it relevant to mention that there’s a Masonic lodge for men affiliated with BU (as students, faculty, staff, or Alumni). Boston University Lodge AF&AM meets every month at the same Grand Lodge building the students took a tour of.
