rancis Bacon played a vital role in restoring the practice of Freemasonry as an expression of Universal Wisdom and Law. Masonry presented an alternative to authoritarian religion based on ritual, the application of philanthropy, and modern scientific thought. Bacon and his initiates used emblems, symbols, unique words and poetry to inspire an enlightened approach to religion based on ancient teachings.
