FURTHER STUDY ON THE LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES
Based of The Grand Lodge British Columbia And Yukon Website
As Freemasons, and especially fellowcrafts, must became knowledgeable of the Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences.
The links provided are only a small introduction to information which falls under each science and hopefully help you in gaining more knowledge in these sciences.
For the most part, they are not Masonic sites and the reader is advised that, unless otherwise noted, they do not represent the opinions or positions of this or any Grand Masonic body.
It should be noted that a reference to the Liberal Arts and Sciences can also be found in Freemasonry's oldest extant document, the Halliwall Manuscript.
Grammar is the science which teaches us to explain the poets and historians; it is the art which qualifies us to write and speak correctly.
Rhetoric is the art of using secular discourse effectively in the circumstances of daily life.
Dialectic is the science of the understanding, which fits us for investigations and definitions, for explanations, and for distinguishing the true from the false.
Arithmetic is the science of pure extension determinable by numbers. Ignorance of numbers leaves many things unintelligible.
It is an exposition of form proceeding from observation. For every excellent and well-ordered arrangement can be reduced to the special requirements of this science.
Music is the science of time intervals as they are perceived by tones. Pythagoras testifies that this world was created by music, and can be ruled by it; thus it is possible that to him, who does not know even a little music, many things remain closed and hidden.
Astronomy, of which we now speak, teaches the laws of the steller world.... which is built up on the investigation of natural phenomena in order to determine the course of the sun, of the moon, and the stars, and to effect a proper reckoning of time.
