The Freemasonic Connections of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
DVD - runs 37:02 The Freemasonic Connections of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. An illustrated lecture by professor James Stevens Curl, De Montfort University. He proves that Masonic influence is everywhere in the Capitol Building with the premise that the U.S. Capitol was designed to represent a Masonic Lodge. Curl says the House Chamber symbolizes the Entered Apprentice Degree, the Senate Chamber represents the Fellowcraft Degree, and the Rotunda was designed to be the physical representation of the Master Masons Degree. Curl is not a Mason, and he caused a stir amongst the academics that were in attendance at the conference. Good slides illustrate what became a controversial concept.
