Fellow Craft Quiz

This Fellow Craft Quiz may be used by any member of the Lodge seeking more light.

While it is the duty of the Masonic Master to provide a good and wholesome education to the brethren, its best use is by the Masonic lodge Education Officer to teach others.

Masonic quiz taking can be both fun and enlightening, wherein each brother goes away from the Masonic Education meeting knowing his time has been well spent. 

Lodge Education Officers:  Print multiple copies of both the questions and the answers, below, to easily and quickly perform your duties to provide Masonic education to the new members of the brethren at your next lodge education meeting.

Take this Fellow Craft Quiz to test your knowledge of the second degree of Freemasonry.
