A broadly-defined, inclusionary term that refers to YOUR "supreme being." Allah, the Buddha, the Christian God, one of the Hindu Gods, one of the Taoist Ascended Masters, etc.

Is that really necessary? It seems to me to be easily inferred.

If you're wondering why Masons use the term, that's a completely different question. The term "Great Architect of the Universe" was coined by Reformation theologian John Calvin, who used it several times to refer to God in his book "Institutes of the Christian Religion". Other Calvinist churchmen soon afterward took up the term.

It was first introduced in Freemasonry in 1724, when the Rev. James Anderson, Grand Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of England, published the Fraternity's constitutions, along with his personal commentaries. Brother Anderson was a Calvinistic Presbyterian minister, and had first heard the phrase "Great Architect of the Universe" used when studying the Reformation in seminary. The appeal of this term to Masons is quite obvious, i.e., it describes God in His role as Master Builder.

Fiat Lvx.
