Modern Freemasonry practices are noted to the Egyptians and Europe philosophies during the Tenth Century. Written records that have been kept since 1717 are proof of the formation of Freemasonry with governing body called Grand Lodge and its governing bodies related to the fraternity. The Grand Lodge of England is said to be the first Grand Lodge of Freemasonry founded on June 24, 1717.

Freemasonry temples are widely seen nowadays with fraternal emblems and symbols in it, it is not a secret society or whatsoever since the fraternal order is known in the community. Most people are confused on what Freemasonry is. The fraternal order may be religious in character but it is not a religion. Every member believes in God though the fraternity does not infringe in its individual members religion.
