Lewis

Featuring Worshipful Brother Gerald

Share this video Lewis has two meanings in masonry. Operatives masons used a lewis tool as a simple device to lift heavy stones. The second meaning, more applicable to speculative freemasonry refers to the son of a freemason. As such a lewis would be granted certain privileges such as admission to the fraternity at an earlier age and precedence over any non-lewis candidates also in line to join. Such privileges are rarely exercised in modern day practice. Although the concept is not prevalent in American Lodges, it has a long tradition of usage elsewhere.
