On the other hand, the members of the Freemasonry usually met in lodges for which were preparing all kinds of ceremonies that were based on a language taken from the construction.

For his part, the lodges of the Freemasonry were meeting in two groups, on the one hand the beginners and for other the partners, where the above mentioned were who were governing the lodge and generally it usually choose between them a teacher luck so that he guides them and presides at them.

The ritual is something like that: the applicant must dress himself completely like a beggar, and those who carry out the ritual must undress the breast and the left foot and the eyes must be bandaged to him, so that it does not see the way for which one leads it up to a door that is opened once I touched it three times and with a lot of force. The same one is led up to the teacher before the one who kneels down since the prayer must listen with attention that this one does to God; then, it must give three returns to the room in which the ritual is carried out, and must be placed before the door with the feet forming a straight angle, giving approximately three steps in the direction in which the teacher is extending his right hand up to a table on which there is the book of the open gospel, together with a compass and a square.
