Welcome to Solomon.
Feed your curiosity! If there’s something you’ve never really understood about Freemasonry, then you’ll probably find the answer in a nugget. These are simple, short, readily understood bites of information, and found in Seek & Learn area of the Solomon web site.
Read them on your own; talk about them with other brethren, encourage your DC or Lodge Secretary to mention them in Lodge meetings. A Lodge of Instruction would also be an ideal opportunity for discussing a point of masonic knowledge and sharing ideas. Masonic knowledge is like the quest for the Holy Grail, it’s a journey, and the process in the adventure and enjoyment.
They could even form a topic for debate when there is no ceremony to perform. Once you’re registered as a Solomon user and enrolled in a module, type a word into the search bar, and you’ll get a list of matches to browse. The Seek & Learn section of the web site is here.
Did you know only one lodge in Lincolnshire delivers the ritual on ‘Why we wear white gloves’ in the first degree? Go have a look at it.
Solomon will continue to be added to and improved on a regular basis so keep coming back to have a look at what’s new. Usually these papers are presented as ‘Nuggets’ and interactive other resources to explore.
Our ‘what’s what’ guide to help you explore Solomon.
The Solomon database is vast, but it’s been carefully structured to support a brother through every stage of his masonic journey. Usually these papers are presented as ‘nuggets’ – short articles on a particular topic – but there are also videos and interactive resources to explore.
Exploration starts with enrolling. It’s easy to do, but it’s important to prevent brethren accidentally straying into areas they don’t want to see yet, such as a higher degree.
After registering and logging in you’ll be offered three options
• Seek & Learn : This is for personal study. This is where you’ll find the nuggets
• Share & Encourage: This is for Lodges and Chapters. It contains nuggets, presentations, demonstrations and quizzes
• Support & Promote: Here’s where you’ll find documents, ideas and resources to support learning and development
