...For he Acknowledges My name
Dr. George L. Lockhart,
In the Holy Name of Jesus Christ.
Welcome to the Official Website for Bishop Richard Allen Lodge #11, of Florida, Free and Accepted Masons, Prince Hall Affiliated. We meet upon the Level, act upon the Plumb, and part upon the Square. Our Principles (for BramL11), are our Bylaws infuses Caution, Silence, and Discretion. These are our credo.
Throughout our lives, we have heard of the Liberal Arts and Sciences in an educational setting (i.e. College of Liberal Arts and Sciences). But until Freemasons are presented with them in a homily of twisting stairs, most have an unclear idea of what they comprise. In AD 420, Marcianus Capella, in Carthage, wrote an allegory of the Phoebus-Apollo, God of the Sun, presenting the Seven Liberal Arts as maids to his bride Philology, a lover of words.
Afterward, artists have illustrated the Liberal arts and Sciences as maids. Freemasonry commands us to study the Liberal Arts and Sciences, which are G, R, L, A, G, M, A. When we explore the historical background, we expose layers of Masonic meanings in each of the seven areas of knowledge, which if digested correctly improves life from which we travel horizontally (from cradle to grave) until we long for that good old home from which no traveler returns.
“An education in the liberal arts and sciences prepares students for a wide range of careers. Said Albert Einstein, The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.”
May God cover you with His wings,
Dr. George L. Lockhart
