Brief History of Freemasonry in the Philippines

Masonic Order in the Philippines was banned by royal decree on January 19, 1812. Freemasonry began in Medieval Europe as a guild for stonemasons but lived on as a fraternity organization. Shrouded in secrecy, it had often been judged as a conspiracy of different Masonic groups and had long been banned by the Catholic Church at the time. Finally, in 1889, the Logia Revolucion was organized by Graciano Lopez-Jaena, linking the masonic structure to the Filipino ilustrados like Jose Rizal, and later on, to the Katipunan which launched the first nationalist revolution in Asia.
