The Mason Word

One of the earliest references to The Mason Word appears in “The Muses’ Threnodie” by Henry Adamson in 1638, which includes the phrase

“We have the Mason Word and second sight.”

It was for refusal to reveal the Mason Word that the Widow's Son was murdered. That Word (and its associated telepathic powers) is admittedly lost, but Master Masons are given a substitute Mason Word by which they may test persons pretending to be Masons who perhaps are frauds. This modern, substitute Mason Word is, of course, a deep and darkly hidden secret, and it may take as long as two or three hours browsing in a library to find one of the "Secrets of Freemasonry Revealed" books that will tell you that it is Mah-hah-bone. Make of that what you will.

Jacques de Molay

Jacques de Molay, the last Grandmaster of the Knights Templar, was burned at the stake in 1314. In the 32nd degree of Scotch Rite Freemasonry, it is revealed that it is the story of de Molay that is hidden behind the allegory of Hiram Abiff.Fot further details,
