Freemasonry: Invention and Tradition Studies de Manuel de Paz-Sánchez [ed.]

FreemasonryColección: Escuadra y Compás

Sinopsis: It is intended to offer a modulated view of the achievements and perspectives of study of the current Spanish historiography on the phenomenon of Freemasonry, which, starting from the need to demystify what for generations had traditionally been written about the history of Freemasonry, took several historians to the creation of quite original and innovative models of analysis, in relation to the works by colleagues from other countries who, in principle, have lacked centralised and state documentary collections, and who have had to use, occasionally, secondary sources as substitutes for the Freemasonic documentation that lodges, grand lodges and grand orients usually offer very restrictively to scholars from other latitudes.
