Martin Faulks: A Mosaic Palace: Freemasonry and the Art of Memory

In the 16th century, William Schaw, the royally appointed Master of the Works, issued the “Schaw Statutes,” which acted as a code of rules governing the activities of operative Masons in Scotland. Within it, he stated that “The Warden of the Lodge… shall take trial of the art of memory and science thereof of every fellow craft and every apprentice according to their vocation and in case that they have lost any point thereof… pay the penalty as follows for their slothfulness.”

Martin Faulks is a member of Quatuor Coronati Lodge No. 2076, and holds past grand rank in the craft while remaining active within various  progressive orders. Professionally, Martin is a world renowned researcher, author, and lecturer, and serves as the general manager of Lewis Masonic Publishing.
