The descendants of Noah. A term applied to Freemasons on the theory, derived from the "legend of the Craft," that Noah was the Father and founder of the Masonic system of theology. And hence the Freemasons claim to be his descendants, because in times past they preserved the pure principles of his religion amid the corruption of surrounding faiths.
