Lynne Adele and Bruce Lee Webb, As Above, So Below

Art historian Lynne Adele and fraternal object collector Bruce Lee Webb (himself a Mason) chart the fascinating history of America’s secret societies.

This fascinating conversation illuminates the power, purpose, and imagery of Freemason societies in America from their origins in ancient Egyptian mystery schools to the Grand Lodge of Texas sending Buzz Aldrin to claim the moon as Texas Masonic Tranquility Lodge #2000. Adele and Webb talk about how these groups functioned in communities, how they were driven by immigrants seeking to preserve ancient traditions, and how their principles were communicated through ritualistic objects.
