The Lost Symbol: Separating Facts from Fiction

While Doubleday publishing remains tight-lipped about the plot of Dan Brown's new novel, there is little doubt that the Freemasons will figure prominently in the story.

The Lost Symbol, which will be released in less than a week from now, will no doubt be an entertaining thriller... but as with Mr. Brown's earlier runaway success The Da Vinci Code, it's important to remember that it's ultimately just a fictional yarn no matter how many plot details may be loosely based in fact.

In order to help separate fact from fiction in the wake of this highly anticipated novel and all the buzz surrounding it, we are adding a new feature to our web site:

Freemasonry: Facts and Fiction

We hope you'll come back over the next month, and then join us (or any lodge in Massachusetts) during our open house next month to learn more about Freemasonry.
