The Cathedral Builders
The Story of a Great Masonic Guild
by Leader Scott
The roots of what we know today as Speculative Freemasonry lay in the old Operative Freemasons. Among the most gifted of these craftsmen were the Comacine Builders of the 12 century. Often credited with ushering in the Renaissance the building quality of these Operative Freemasons rose to that of an art. All aspects of their work were given careful detail for quality, design and aesthetic beauty. Leader Scott gives us a fascinating and detailed look at these Operatives in this classic account. This is a photographic reproduction of the 1899 edition of this work.
