This article discusses the different meanings of Religion in the founding texts of modern Freemasonry (Constitutions) and in the coeval debate inside the masonic lodges, analyzing the situation of England and France in the early eighteenth Century and the influence of the two different State religions on the two national masonries. The building of Solomon’s Temple and the ritual of Master mason constitute the foundation Myths of the Institution, referring to the tradition, only partly originated by the medieval guilds, that aspires to bring together the different christian churches connecting them to a common primitive divine revelation and to a common moral law.
Keywords: Freemasonry, religion, Solomon Temple, foundation’s myth. initiation rites.
