A short history

Our present day Freemasonry grew forth in England and Scotland in the 1600´s as an ethical and philosophical system based on the art of building, its symbolism and history. The Order, in its original form, was consecrated in 1717 when four Masonic lodges in London amalgamated to form The Grand Lodge.

The system was quickly adopted and became predominant in continental Europe. The first Norwegian lodge was founded on the June 24th.1749 on Bygdoey, a peninsular on the Oslo Fjord.
