  Article:   AN INSTANCE OF ENGLISHNESS FREEMASONRY.

Authors:  CORNELIU NICOLESCU.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  The aim of this paper is to present the English Freemasonry on the synchronic and the diachronic levels and to show its relationships with a certain kind of image of Englishness, the one connected to the ideas of gentlemanness, elite, social hierarchization of the classes, monarchy and aristocracy, order, morality, and divine legacy. The paper will try to show that there are may be no true discussion of Englishness without the presentation of features the English Freemasonry has contributed to this concept. Given the relative secrecy of the Ancient Free and Accepted Freemasonry this contribution may be not so obvious to the public. Nevertheless, revelations from inside the Order may hopefully make them visible.
