The Landmarks of Freemasonry

This paper was written at the beginning of my term as Junior Deacon of Runnymede Lodge No.619, a European Concept Lodge once based in Toronto, that has since become dormant. This paper investigates the history, the significance and the veracity of the historical documents that introduce the concept of “masonic landmarks”, to determine how they have shaped our understanding of Freemasonry today and what role they might play in its future.
