But bearing in mind that during the Middle Ages the Guild System was the means by which the Catholic Church exerted influence through all levels of society...
...that during the Reformation this then became obsolete within Protestant Nations but was re-constructed in terms of Free Masonry as a means by which Protestant thinkers and idealists could exert those same controls and influences, then in reality it was the transference of the means of control from the hands of one group to another.
