Early Scottish Lodges
Dear List Members:
With reference to the interest in the origins of Masonry, and in
particular Masonry in Scotland, I would refer those interested to two
books written by David Stevenson, Professor of History at St,Andrews
University, and incidentally, not a Mason. His scholarship should
satisfy the most rigorous critic.
The books are:1)The Origins of Freemasonry:Scotland's Century,
1590-1710, Cambridge University Press, first printed in 1988,
reprinted in 2000. ISBN 0 521 39654 2; 2)The First
Freemasons:Scotland's Early Lodges and Their Members, Geo. Stewart &
Co. Ltd. Edinburgh, first printed in 1988, 2 nd edition printed in
2001. ISBN 902324 65 9
Both books are available from The Grand Lodge of Scotland,
Freemasons' Hall, 96 George St. Edinburgh EH2 3DH
Stevenson addresses the relationship of Sir William of Rosslyn, and
the St.Clairs/Sinclairs generally, to early Freemasonry.
Richmond Hill, Ont. Can.
