Alexander Pope

Featuring Worshipful Brother Gerald

Share this video Alexander Pope, of great literary fame was born in 1688 into a Catholic family in London. Regrettably he was deformed by an illness when he was 12, and his body had to be supported by an iron frame. He became famous by translations of such classics such as the Iliad and the Odessey. His great work published in 1733 was his Essay of Man, a survey of human nature. He was both a Catholic and a Freemason, and belonged to lodge#16 which met at a tavern with the most unlikely name, The Goat at the Foot of the Hay Market. His contemporary Jonathan Swift, author of Gullivers Travels was also a member in this lodge. Brother Pope died in 1745.
