THE DERIVATION OF MASONIC SYMBOLISM AND MOZART’S USE OF IT IN THE MAGIC FLUTE
MetadataShow full item record
Authors such as Manly P. Hall and John J. Robinson have done extensive research on the history and derivation of Freemasonic symbolism, while authors such as Jacques Henry, Jacques Chailley, Neal Zaslaw, and William Cowdery have done extensive research on Masonic symbolism within Mozart’s Opera, The Magic Flute. However, throughout my research for this paper, I have yet to see many, if any resources that make a connection between the two. The goal of this paper is not only to help explain where Masonic symbols come from, but also make the connection between them and The Magic Flute.
