  GILDS, or Guilds. Medieval gilds were voluntary associations formed for the mutual aid and protection of their members. Among the gildsmen there was a strong spirit of fraternal co-operation or Christian brotherhood, with a mixture of worldly and religious ideals—the support of the body and the salvation of the soul.   Gilds The Livery Companies of London derive their origin from the early associations termed Gilds, which were either Ecclesiastic or Secular. The Ecclesiastical Gilds were founded for Devotion and Almsdeeds. The Secular Gilds were formed for purposes of trade and almsdeed.

Merchant Gilds are exemplified in the twelve great Livery Companies of London. And the modern Trades Unions are nothing else but Craft Gilds under another name. But the most interesting point in the history of the Craft Gilds is the fact that from them arose the Brotherhoods of the Freemasons. Ditchfield (); The Gilds and Companies of London, by George Unwin (). 0 When the association of kinsmen failed, the voluntary associations - gilds - appeared as substitutes.

Though records relating to Craft Gilds in the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth centuries are very meagre and difficult to discover, the “Old Book of the Worshipful Company of Horners” has proved extremely useful in helping to build up a consecutive history of this extremely early Gild.   The current state of London housing is an affront to civilisation. It is going to require creative and determined public action, not blind faith in the market, to change it. • Big Capital by.
