Craftsman

A Freemason. The word originally meant anyone skillful in his art, and is so used by our early writers. Thus Chaucer, in his Knights' Tale (v 1897), says:

For in the land there was no craftsman, That geometry or arsmetrike can, Nor pourtrayor, nor carver of images, That Theseus ne gave him meat and wages. The theatre to make and to devise.
