Through well-researched text, as well as drawings and color photography, this book captures the magnificence of European cathedrals and the brilliance of the Master Builders and craftsmen who designed and built them. Cathedral building is a fusion of man's greatest accomplishments in the arts, sciences, and humanities over the centuries. More than 250 photos and drawings capture the quality and craftsmanship built into these stunning structures created to replicate God's house or heaven on Earth. Color photos illustrate the gorgeous naves, detailed fan vaulted ceilings, beautiful stained-glass windows, flying buttresses, and 650-year-old parchment drawings of the cathedrals. Discover the origin of Gothic architecture, see how Gothic cathedrals were built using primitive tools, and learn about the development of Freemasonry and its direct descent from the stonemasons of the Middle Ages. Enjoy 30 cathedral tours and acquire a few Masonic secrets of the stonemasons.

Review From the Square Magazine

Cathedrals Built by the Masons was featured in a full-page article in The Square, the Independent Magazine for Freemasons, in June 2016. "Russell Herner is a Freemason who loves cathedrals. He also knows a lot about them - and this is obvious when you read his book. It is slightly larger than A4, some 240 pages and beautifully illustrated. The book has 14 chapters, appendices, glossary, and good references. It falls into three groups. Firstly, a collection of wonderful pictures of cathedrals. The second part is a description of how cathedrals were built and the tools that were used. The third is a resume of the transition from Operative to Speculative Masonry. Here is one extract from the second section to give you a flavour - Its about those wonderful, rose shaped windows
