The Square and Compass are the single most identifiable symbols of Freemasonry. They are the tools of an architect and are used in Masonic rituals to teach members lessons in such things as responsible social interaction: the compass symbolizes the rational mind, the square represents the straight path one should follow in life. It is taught, for example, the Mason should "shape their actions toward others by the square of virtue" and learn to "control their desires and keep their emotions toward all mankind within reasonable bounds." In its ritual context, the fraternity of Freemasonry may be able to trace its origin to the builders of King Solomon’s Temple and may very well link the brotherhood as a direct descendent of the Knights Templar…dating the brotherhood back to at least the Second Crusade.
