    USA - Jewels of the Craft

    USA - Jewels of the Craft

    From time to time one will see the occasional Masonic medal or jewel which has left Masonic hands for some reason or another, at collector's fairs, flea markets and antique shops. These are usually purchased by collectors and are often offered back to the original Lodges.

    Collecting jewels has a fascinating interest, which leads to a greater awareness of the role of jewels and their history, relative to the individual bodies in Freemasonry.

    The JEWELS of the CRAFT (JOTC) was formed in 1990 by a number of Masons with a common interest in Masonic Jewels. To assist individual collectors, members receive a quarterly informative journal entitled "The Diadem" accompanied by a list of jewels for sale or exchange by our members. The members also meet twice yearly at Birmingham (see Meetings).

    MASONIC RESEARCH IN SOUTH DAKOTA

    by Richard M. Luther, PGM

    (South Dakota Lodge of Masonic Research)

    The South Dakota Lodge of Masonic Research(SDLMR) was granted a charter by the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of South Dakota on June 11, 1952 in Sioux Falls by Grand Master Roger S. Brown and his elected officers, including Elvin F. Strain, Grand Secretary, all of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge A.F. & A. M. of South Dakota. Since this writer was well acquainted with these officers it seems appropriate to share a bit of the early philosophy that accompanied the formation of SDLMR.

    Is SDLMR treated as a constituent Lodge? Yes, in many respects SDLMR performs most of the same functions(except conferral of degrees) as a constituent Lodge in South Dakota. By-Laws were developed and approved by the Grand Lodge. There are some differences, however. SDLMR meets only twice a year, June(at Grand Lodge) and in the fall. The officers as well as their duties parallel those of constituent Lodges. Committees are numerous.

    USA - Southern California Research Lodge

    USA - Southern California Research Lodge

    For many years the Grand Lodge of California has recognized a special classification of constituent Lodges known as Research Lodges with authority to conduct research, hold discussions, gather and preserve Masonic Information, maintain a library, supply papers or speakers at the request of other Lodges, and conduct a program of general service to the craft in the field of Masonic education and information. The main differences between Research Lodges and regular constituent lodges is that Research Lodges cannot confer degrees; are not liable for the relief of a member, his wife, widow, etc.; and are not entitled to representation at or any vote in Grand Lodge.

    Membership in SCRL is open not only to California Freemasons but to Master Masons in good standing of any Lodge recognized by the Grand Lodge, F. & A.M. of California. However, only master masons holding membership in a regular California Lodge are eligible to vote or hold an office in SCRL.

    In addition Grand Lodges, their constituent Lodges, York and Scottish Rite Bodies, recognized by the California Grand Lodge, can become "Subscribing Members", but only receive the bulletins and publications of the Research Lodge. SCRL is one of the largest, if not the largest, Research Lodge with over 3000 members worldwide. Members come from every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and at least 20 foreign countries.

    Allemagne - Deutsches Freimaurermuseum Bayreuth

    Die Freimaurerei hat ihren Ursprung in der Steinmetzzunft.

    Wie diese ist sie in ihrer Arbeit, ihren Sitten und Gebräuchen eine Handwerkskunst-

    und als solche durch rationale Beschreibung und Erklärung allein nicht zugänglich!

     

    Erst die Umsetzung freimaurerischen Gedankengutes ins tägliche Leben schließt sie dem Betrachter auf.

     

    Die nachfolgenden Ausführungen können demnach lediglich ein Versuch sein, das äußere Gewand der Freimaurerei zu beschreiben, um so auf ihre innere Struktur hinzuweisen.

     

    Die Freimaurerei existiert keinesfalls in einem nebulösen, nicht greifbaren, anonymen Raum, sondern ist im alltäglichen Leben der Gesellschaft präsent.

     

    Somit steht es jedem Interessierten frei, sich in Kontakt mit den Brüdern zu bringen und diese „zu berühren", - er wird feststellen, daß die überlieferten Traditionen und die Ideale der Freimaurerei ungebrochen lebendig sind.

    Autriche - Österreichisches Freimaurer-Museums in Rosenau bei Zwettl

    Seit 1975 Jahren beherbergt das schöne Barockschloss Rosenau (8 km von Zwettl entfernt) das Österreichische Freimaurer-Museum - bis heute besuchten nahezu 600.000 Menschen das Museum und die wechselnden Sonderausstellungen.

    stiegenaufgang

     

    Erstmals urkundlich 1593 erwähnt, bekam das Schloss sein heutiges Aussehen unter der Herrschaft des Grafen Leopold Christoph von Schallenberg (1720-1797). Er selbst dürfte dem Bunde der Freimaurer angehört haben, Dokumente über eine Mitgliedschaft existieren jedoch nicht. Er war es aber, der 7 Räume des Schlosses zu Logenräumen gestalten ließ.

     

    Zu Beginn der siebziger Jahre des vergangenen Jahrhunderts wurde das Schloss einer Grundrestaurierung unterzogen und am 23. April 1975 wurde das Museum eröffnet.

     

    Schloss Rosenau befindet sich ist im Eigentum der Niederösterreichischen Landesregierung, die die Museumsräume an den Museumsverein Schloss Rosenau und die Hotel- und Gastronomieräume seit 1999 an Frau Margit Zulehner verpachtet hat.

     

    Der Museumsverein, den es schon seit mehr als zwanzig Jahren gibt und der ursprünglich auch den Beherbergungsbetrieb geführt hat, wurde 1996 reorganisiert.

     

    Heute steht er unter Führung und Kontrolle der Großloge von Österreich, die den Obmann und ein weiteres Vorstandsmitglied im fünfköpfigen Vereinsvorstand stellt.

     

    Auch die Mehrheit der regulären Mitglieder sind Brr.: FM. Es sind aber auch Repräsentanten der Region im Vorstand und als Mitglieder vertreten, da der Verein seit jeher auch die Plattform für die touristischen und kulturellen Aktivitäten rund um das Schloss darstellt. Die niederösterreichische Landesregierung und die Stadt Zwettl sind als Beobachter im Vereinsvorstand vertreten.

     

    Der tägliche Museumsbetrieb - das Öffnen und Schließen, das Kassieren der Eintritte, die Führungen, die Verkäufe im Museumsshop, die regelmäßige Kontrolle und Pflege der Ausstellungsobjekte etc. - wird derzeit von der in Rosenau ansässigen Frau Inge Doppler betreut.

     

    Für alle Wünsche rund um das Schloss steht die Pächterin Frau Zulehner zur Verfügung, die auch bereitwillig Koordinationsaufgaben übernimmt.

    Finlande - Vapaamuurarimuseo

    Vapaamuurarimuseo

     

    Suomen suurloosin vapaamuurarimuseo     on perustettu vuonna 1967. Museon tarkoituksena on tuoda esille erityisesti Suomen vapaamuurariuden historiaa sen alkuajoista nykypäivään.

     

    Museon esineistöön kuuluu lähes tuhat vapaamuurariuteen ja vapaamuurareihin liittyvää luetteloitua esinettä. Museossa on myös runsas valikoima ruotsinkielisen  veljesjärjestömme Svenska Frimurare Ordenin Stor Capitlet i Finlandin tallettamaa aineistoa.

    Esineistö

     

    Museossa on esillä mm. säveltäjämestari Jean Sibeliuksen alkuperäisnuotteja        hänen säveltämästään vapaamuurarien rituaalimusiikista Musique Réligieuse, opus 113, ja Sibeliuksen englanninkielinen hakemus vapaamuurarijärjestöön vuodelta 1922. Sibelius oli Suomi Loosi 1:n perustajajäsen.

     

    Ainoalla vapaamuurareihin kuuluneella tasavaltamme presidentillä, Risto Rytillä, on museossa oma näyttelyvitriininsä. 

     

    Juoksijamestarimme Hannes Kolehmainen kuului vapaamuurareihin. Museossa on hänen suurikokoinen New Yorkin maratonin voittopokaalinsa vuodelta 1913.

     

    Esillä on myös runsaasti vapaamuurarien rituaaliasuja, kuten muurariesiliinoja eri aikakausilta ja eri maista, näyttävä kokoelma Ikuiseen Itään siirtyneiden mestareiden suorakulmajuveeleja ja lukuisia Suomen suurloosin saamia lahjaesineitä ympäri maapallon.

     

    Museoesittelyyn pyritään saamaan monipuolisuutta aika ajoin vaihtuvalla eri vapaamuurariyksikköjen esittelyllä sekä vaihtuvalla kunniakirjojen ja valokuvien näyttelyllä.

     

    Museon esineistö karttuu jatkuvasti useilla muistoesineillä ja lahjoituksilla. Toivomme, että vapaamuurariuteen liittyvä esineistö ohjattaisiin vapaamuurarimuseoon, jossa se löytää arvoisensa paikan ja on jälkipolvien nähtävänä.

     

    Tervetuloa

     

    Vapaamuurarimuseo antaa erityisesti muurariveljille monipuolisen kuvan  vapaamuurariudesta, sen kansainvälisyydestä ja historiasta. Toivomme, että yhä useampi muurariveli ja loosi tutustuisi museoon syventääkseen tietouttaan vapaamuurariudesta. Myös kaikki ne vapaamuurareihin kuulumattomat henkilöt,  jotka haluavat tietää enemmän vapaamuurariudesta, ovat tervetulleita vierailemaan museoon.

    Le Musée de la Maison des Maçons - musée maçonnique de la Grande Loge Nationale Française -  est heureux et fier de présenter grâce à internet une part importante de ses collections, non seulement aux Francs-Maçons mais aussi au grand public. Les uns et les autres pourront ainsi découvrir ou redécouvrir la réalité de la Franc-Maçonnerie, de son histoire et de sa culture.

    Une première partie du site - la vitrine - permet au visiteur pressé de découvrir quelques unes des pièces les plus belles et les plus significatives du musée maçonnique de la G.L.N.F.

    La visite du Musée virtuel permet de mieux appréhender la Franc-Maçonnerie en sept étapes : le Franc-Maçon, la Loge, le cheminement du Maçon, l'agape, la vie profane, les oeuvres d'art maçonniques et enfin la bibliothèque.

    Une partie Exposition virtuelle présentera régulièrement sur ce site des présentations thématiques d'objets du Musée, tandis que la partie Dernières acquisitions vous permettra de suivre la politique de développement du Musée de la Maison des Maçons.

    Installé au coeur de la Maison des Maçons qu’est l’Hôtel de la G.LN.F., ce musée maçonnique est donc d’abord celui des Francs-Maçons. De tous ceux, qui, depuis 1717, participent à cette grande aventure humaine et universelle, individuelle et collective qui s’appelle la Franc-Maçonnerie et qui se reconnaissent dans le respect des traditions, de la spiritualité et des règles de la régularité.

    France - Musée de la franc-maçonnerie

    3 siècles d'Humanisme et d'Histoire...

    Le patrimoine maçonnique est à l’image des mutations qui ont vu au cours des derniers siècles accéder nos sociétés à la modernité.

    Créé en 1889, victime de spoliations sous l’Occupation, ré ouvert en 1973, le musée a progressivement reconstitué ses collections. Depuis 2000, il est le musée de la franc-maçonnerie et il bénéficie depuis 2003 de l'appellation « Musée de France », délivrée par le Ministère de la Culture.

    Ces dernières années, une action soutenue lui a permis de faire de nouvelles acquisitions, d’accueillir de nouveaux publics, de créer une banque d’images.

    Afin de compléter ce renouveau, le musée a été entièrement rénové afin de mettre en valeur les oeuvres uniques que renferme ce lieu d’histoire et de culture de la franc-maçonnerie. Toutes les composantes de la franc-maçonnerie française oeuvrent au sein de son comité scientifique et de l’association des amis du musée.

    Il soutient et anime de nombreuses manifestations, notamment maçonniques dans toute la France. Il s’est doté d’un projet scientifique et culturel afin d’assurer son développement et sa rénovation dans les années à venir, et devenir ainsi un parcours de découverte et de réflexion autour de l’identité et de l’histoire des francs-maçons.

    L’ambition du musée de la franc-maçonnerie est de témoigner de l’influence maçonnique sur l’évolution de la société, de la citoyenneté et de la modernité.

    Les spécificités et les évolutions de la franc-maçonnerie ont laissé une empreinte qui se retrouve dans l’importance de l’iconographie et des objets préservés à travers le temps, dont le musée est dépositaire.

    On peut retrouver la richesse de l’architecture et de l’apparat des temples sur le site du musée : mobilier, décors et objets rituels ayant appartenu aux loges et aux maçons.

    Une importante collection de sceaux, bijoux, médailles, peintures, objets personnels comme des montres et des tabatières sont conservés, ainsi qu’un grand nombre de manuscrits, de patentes, de gravures, de livres d’architecture, de photographies.

    Parmi les pièces emblématiques :

    - un portrait en pied du comte de Clermont, Grand Maître de 1743 à 1771

    - les « tabliers » de Voltaire ou de Jérôme Bonaparte, éphémère roi de Westphalie

    - l’épée de « Vénérable » de Lafayette

    Le visiteur pourra également admirer la plus belle collection de faïences à décors maçonniques du XVIIIe siècle ou de superbes « décors » (tabliers, cordons, sautoirs…) brodés ou peints avec les emblèmes et symboles des différents grades de l’ordre, ainsi que quelques-uns des documents de la collection, comme une édition originale des Constitutions d’Anderson de 1723 ou différents manuscrits de la plus grande rareté.

    Un musée à découvrir absolument afin de comprendre l’empreinte de la franc-maçonnerie au fil des siècles et l’importance du patrimoine maçonnique. Celui-ci est véritablement le reflet d’un art de vivre et d’un engagement au fil du temps.

    Italie - Biblioteca del Grande Oriente d'Italia

    La Biblioteca è stata ricostituita dopo il 1945, anche grazie a numerosi Fratelli, come Vittorio Acquarone, i quali avevano custodito le pubblicazioni del Grande Oriente durante la soppressione dell'Ordine o le avevano recuperate dopo la sua ricostituzione. La Biblioteca si è sviluppata con l'acquisizione del Fondo Lattanzi e Maruzzi. Per volontà del Gran Maestro Gustavo Raffi e della Giunta di incrementare il patrimonio culturale dell'istituzione e di agevolarne la fruizione, nel febbraio 2000 è stato costituito il Servizio Biblioteca che ha acquisito e sistemato alcuni Fondi preziosi quali Stolper, Volli, Landolina, Ungari, a cui si devono aggiungere le recenti acquisizioni dei Fondi Mosca-Ferrari, Giuseppe e Francesco Leti e Gregogna. Si sta procedendo ad un riordino completo del patrimonio librario, censito in nove lingue, attraverso la sua informatizzazione, che ha portato all'inserimento su elaboratore elettronico di 9301 record, con aggiornamento di tutte le nuove acquisizioni e un organico recupero dell'arretrato.

    Italie - Museo della Gran Loggia d'Italia

    Fanno parte delle collezioni libri rarissimi, diplomi di significato storico, come quello conferito dalla loggia Anita all’oriente di Livorno nel 1876 a Luigi Pianciani, primo sindaco di Roma liberata e quello, anch’esso conferito dalla loggia Anita n. 209 di Livorno a Domenico Angherà, arciprete e patriota italiano. Di questa storica loggia, fondata dai reduci garibaldini nel 1849 in onore di Anita Garibaldi, morta l’8 agosto di quell’anno nelle paludi ravennati, e fusasi nel 6 febbraio 1872 con la loggia Alpi Giulie viene esposto il glorioso labaro risalente appunto alla data della fusione. L’Officina “Anita Garibaldi-Alpi Giulie” è dalla secessione del 1908 che è onorata di appartenere alla Gran Loggia e ne rappresenta una della logge più significative e importanti.

    Eccezionali le fotografie esposte, come il ritratto autografato “Joseph Mazzini” realizzato presso lo studio londinese Caldesi-Blanford, il ritratto di Garibaldi realizzato dallo studio Del Tufo di Piazza del Foro Traiano, 76 a Roma e un ritratto dei figli di Ricciotti Garibaldi fotografati nell’uniforme militare della Legione Garibaldina durante la guerra delle Argonne.

    Il Museo anticipa inoltre alcuni degli oltre ventimila nomi elencati nei registri matricolari tra il 1915 e il 1925. Paolo Thaon di Revel, ministro della Marina nei primi anni del governo Mussolini e Duca del Mare, e, col 33° grado, membro del Supremo Consiglio del Rito scozzese antico e accettato. Tra gli affiliati alla Gran Loggia figurano inoltre Vittorio Valletta, per decenni stratega della Fiat, il Maresciallo d’Italia Ugo Cavallero ma anche scrittori famosi, come Giosuè Carducci, Curzio Malaparte, Giovanni Pascoli e numerosi attori, da Gino Cervi e Carlo Dapporto al grande Totò. Il Museo è arricchito dalle lettere di Pietro Nenni, Filippo Turati, Carlo Rosselli. Il banner esposto all’esterno del museo riporta una delle lettere scritte da Albert Pike, insigne generale statunitense a capo del Rito scozzese antico ed accettato del Supremo Consiglio madre del mondo al suo omologo di Torino, Timoteo Riboli, medico, filantropo e, fra l’altro, fondatore nel 1871 della Società Protettrice degli animali.

    USA - The George Washington Masonic Memorial

    USA - The George Washington Masonic Memorial

    Our Vision: "To inspire humanity through education to emulate and promote the virtues, character and vision of George Washington, the Man, the Mason and Father of our Country."

    The George Washington Masonic Memorial was built in the 1920s by the more than two million American Freemasons who wished to:

    “express in durability and beauty the undying esteem of the Freemasons of the United States for him in whose memory it shall stand throughout the coming years.”

    Memorial in Winter

    This magnificent structure is privately funded through the grateful contributions of Freemasons and others, yet remains open to the public, free of charge, seven days a week.

    The George Washington Masonic Memorial is more than a colossal memorial and museum. It is a tourist attraction and destination; research center and library; community center; performing arts center and concert hall; banquet and celebration site; and meeting site for local and countless visiting Masonic lodges and organizations. However, first and foremost, it is a memorial to honor and perpetuate the memory, character and virtues of the man who best exemplifies what Freemasons are and ought to be, Brother George Washington.

  • Frauen-Großloge von Deutschland

    Frauen-Großloge von Deutschland

    Die Frauen-Großloge von Deutschland (ehemals Großloge „Zur Humanität“) ist ein Zusammenschluss von femininen Freimaurerlogen. Sie hat ihren Sitz in Berlin. Ihr gehören 15 feminine Freimaurerlogen an. Sie ging hervor aus dem 1949 in Berlin gegründeten freimaurerischen Frauenzirkel „Zur Humanität“; die Gründungsfeier, der ein Aufruf in der Presse vorausgegangen war, fand am 30. Juni 1949 statt. Es war somit die erste deutsche ausschließlich weibliche freimaurerische Gesellschaft, denn gemischte Logen des „Droit Humain“ gab es schon in den 1920er Jahren in Deutschland. Der Frauenzirkel „Zur Humanität“ verblieb bis 1982 unter dem Schutz der Großloge AFAM, Distrikt Berlin, nachdem die beiden Berliner Großlogen („Royal York“ und „Zu den Alten Pflichten“) sich der Großloge AFAM angeschlossen hatten. Im Jahre 1982 wurde dann die Großloge „Zur Humanität“ gegründet. Dazu konnte es kommen, weil im Jahre 1982 zwei Frauenlogen in Düsseldorf und Wetzlar gegründet worden waren, so dass drei Meisterinnen vom Stuhl (Vorsitzende) der jetzt bestehenden drei Frauenlogen die Großloge gründen konnten (denn dazu sind nach verbreiteter Auffassung mindestens drei Mitgliedslogen nötig). Die Großmeisterin und der Großbeamtenrat konnten von nun an so genannten Lichteinbringungen in neue Logen durchführen, d. h. offiziell weitere Mitgliedslogen gründen.

Auf Geheiß Friedrich des Großen wurde kurz nach seiner Thronbesteigung die Große National-Mutterloge „Zu den drei Weltkugeln“ gegründet. In einem Grußwort zur 250-Jahrfeier der Großen National-Mutterloge sagte Dr. Louis Ferdinand von Hohenzollern, dass Friedrich der Große den Grundsätzen der Toleranz die Gewissensfreiheit, die Geistesfreiheit und die Wohltätigkeit – das Menschsein – hinzufügte.

    Le Droit Humain auch: Internationaler Orden der Co-Freimaurerei für Männer und Frauen

    Le Droit Humain auch: Internationaler Orden der Co-Freimaurerei für Männer und Frauen

    Le Droit Humain auch: Internationaler Orden der Co-Freimaurerei für Männer und Frauen (Ordre Maçonique Mixte International „Le Droit Humain“) ist ein Zusammenschluss liberaler Freimaurerlogen. Die Großloge für Männer und Frauen Le Droit Humain wurde im Jahr 1893 durch die Franzosen Maria Deraismes und Georges Martin gegründet. Maria Deraismes setzte sich als demokratische Humanistin auch für die Emanzipation der Frau ein. Bei zahlreichen Vorträgen hatte sie sich als talentierte Rednerin ausgezeichnet. Ihr Ansehen war bald so groß, daß die "Freidenker-Loge" ("Free-Thinkers - Lodge") in Pecq den für die damalige Zeit außergewöhnlichen Beschluß faßte, sie in die Loge aufzunehmen. So war Maria Deraismes die erste Frau, die am 14. Januar 1882 in eine Männerloge aufgenommen wurde. Georges Martin, ein Senator und "Conseiller Général" in Paris war überzeugt, daß Frauen eine bedeutendere Rolle in der Gesellschaft spielen sollten und er kämpfte deshalb für deren Zugang zur Freimaurerei. Nach mehr als 10 Jahren vergeblichen Bemühens beschlossen George Martin und Maria Deraismes, die erste Loge der Welt zu gründen, die sowohl Männer als auch Frauen als Mitglieder akzeptierte - "Le Droit Humain". Am 14. März 1893 wurden 16 Frauen eingeweiht - der Internationale Orden der Co-Freimaurerei für Männer und Frauen war entstanden. "Le Droit Humain" verbreitete sich in Europa rasch. Dr. Annie Besant, eine berühmte Frauenrechtlerin und Kollegin Mahatma Gandhis, brachte den Orden von England nach Indien. Später nahm Antoine Mozzarelli den Orden mit nach USA, andere trugen ihn nach Süd-Amerika und Ozeanien. Derzeit ist "Le Droit Humain" die einzige freimaurerische Institution, die nicht nur international arbeitet, sondern auch Männer und Frauen zu ihren Mitgliedern zählt. "Le Droit Humain" gibt es in mehr als 60 Ländern der Erde.

    OMMI El Derecho Humano. Sus Origenes

    Las primeras logias de “masones aceptados” reconocidos por una Gran Logia se instalaron fuera de las Islas Británicas a partir de 1725 (en España desde 1726) y en ellas sólo participaban los hombres, como correspondía a la costumbre de la época respecto al papel social de la mujer.

    MARÍA DERAISMES, periodista y militante a favor de los derechos de la mujer y de la infancia, y el doctor GEORGES MARTIN, Senador y Consejero General, emprendieron de modo conjunto campañas a favor de los derechos civiles y políticos de las mujeres, así como de la escuela laica y en contra del sectarismo clerical. De este combate nacerá un profundo afecto y, el 14 de enero de 1882, María Deraismes fue iniciada en la logia “Les Libres Penseurs du Pecq”, con lo que se convierte en la primera francmasona y en símbolo de la igualdad en la iniciación masónica.

    Once años después, el 4 de abril de 1893, María Deraismes crea una logia denominada “Gran Logia Simbólica Escocesa de Francia –Le Droit Humain”. Esta logia será la que dé origen a la ORDEN MASÓNICA MIXTA INTERNACIONAL “LE DROIT HUMAIN” –EL DERECHO HUMANO-.

    Una vez que surgió El Derecho Humano, la igualdad de mujeres y hombres en la masonería se hizo irreversible, sobre todo, gracias al rumbo que marcaron sus fundadores. Asimismo, plasmaron su voluntad de que El Derecho Humano debía situarse, con decisión, por encima de las fronteras, las etnias, las culturas y las religiones. Así es, hasta nuestros días.

    La Masonería

    Sociedad filantrópica, filosófica y progresista. Sus objetivos: la exaltación y el perfeccionamiento de las más elevadas virtudes humanas.

    Bienvenidos La Orden asienta sus principios en los ideales de Libertad, Igualdad y Fraternidad; y considera que el hombre puede alcanzar su realización a través de la Ciencia, la Justicia y el Trabajo (trilogía que constituye su lema). Estos ideales, que en el seno de nuestra Institución no sólo se expresan sino que se hacen realidad, fueron los que inspiraron a hombres de todos los tiempos a la hora de enfrentar y combatir regímenes opresores, despóticos o que negaban la dignidad de la condición humana.

    Valiéndose de una tradición iniciática compuesta por símbolos y alegorías, el lenguaje masónico trata de operar en lo profundo de la conciencia para sacar a la luz aquellos arquetipos que distinguen a los hombres cabales. De esta forma la Masonería se erige en defensora del progreso de la humanidad, y se manifiesta acérrima enemiga de la ignorancia, el fanatismo y la codicia.

    What is Freemasonry?

    Ask any of the 15,000 Freemasons in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory this question, and you’ll probably get 15,000 different answers!

    Freemasonry means different things to each member.

        Some would say it’s a personal development program which promotes family and community values.

        Others would describe Freemasonry as a chance for both social interaction and "philosophical brainstorming".

        Freemasonry also provides an opportunity for public service, and hands-on involvement in charitable or community issues.

        The short answer to the question, "What is Freemasonry" is that it’s one of the world’s oldest and largest fraternal organisations.

    Made up of 5 million Freemasons around the world, it has adopted the fundamental principles of integrity, goodwill, and charity as foundations for an individual’s life and character.

        So, a Freemason strives to be moral and ethical.

        He strives to show justice, act honourably, and be loyal.

        A Freemason teaches and practices concern for people.

        He cares for the less fortunate, and helps those in need.

        And all this is done irrespective of cultural or ethnic background.

        Irrespective of religious beliefs.

        And irrespective of any differences in social standing or education.

    Grande Loge de l'Australie du sud et du Territoire du Nord

    Grande Loge de l'Australie du sud et du Territoire du Nord

    Freemasonry in South Australia and Northern Territory is governed by the Grand Lodge of Antient, Free and Accepted Masons of South Australia and Northern Territory Inc.

     

    The Grand Lodge is an association, with membership made up of all Freemasons who are members of constituent lodges as well as any Freemason appointed by the Grand Master or elected by Grand Lodge as a member of Grand Lodge. At its head is the Grand Master, who has the right to preside over all meetings, while the overall business is run by or reports to the Board of Management.

     

    Subject to the ample power and authority of the Grand Master, Grand Lodge exercises supreme jurisdiction over the association comprising those Freemasons who are subscribing or honorary members of constituent lodges. The Grand Lodge has sovereign power and is not answerable or responsible to any other Masonic body. The structures, proceedings and management of the Grand Lodge are conducted in accordance with its written Constitutions and Regulations.

     

    The Grand Lodge usually meets for Communication twice each year, in April and in October. An annual Conference is held each October for discussion of matters of interest to the members of Grand Lodge and of constituent lodges. Each Lodge has one vote at the conference, while all decisions are submitted to the Board of Management of Grand Lodge for consideration and carrying into effect.

     

    Each constituent lodge holds a warrant which was authorised by and continues to be under the control of the Grand Lodge. Constituent lodges must have their Masters installed (whether annually or every 2 years depending on their constitution) by the Grand Master or a Grand Lodge Officer representing the Grand Master. Each lodge has a name and a number, eg Lodge of Friendship No.1 (this lodge was the first to be warranted under the Grand Lodge of South Australia and Northern Territory, hence number 1).

     

    For ease of management, constituent lodges are grouped together into geographical regions known as districts. District Grand Superintendents represent these regions at Grand Lodge as well as representing Grand Lodge within their districts.

    Grande Loge de l'Australie-Occidentale

    An Introduction

     

    It is because of the antiquity and the resulting mystery surrounding our origins that Freemasonry has developed into such a unique and to the uninitiated, complicated and mysterious organisation. Many of the myths surrounding the fraternity have evolved from the reluctance of members to explain our ancient systems of moral education to those they feel would be inclined to ridicule them. In some instances, it was also due to a misguided impression that some people were simply not of sufficient intellectual or moral character to understand or appreciate our aims and objectives. In order to avoid conflict or embarrassment to either party, the Freemasons of yesteryear felt it better to say nothing. There is also the question of Masonic secrecy. Do we have secrets? Yes we do. They are however, confined principally to modes of recognition of Masonic rank or progress and are only of any real significance when used in Masonic ceremonies.

     

    The ceremonies themselves are not strictly secret but they are of such a special significance to every Freemason we prefer to keep them private. Every Freemason remembers with great affection the uniqueness of his initiation ceremony and wants every new candidate of Freemasonry to experience the same joy of discovery and feel the same sense of privilege. However, to return to the context of the original question it is better to start (as far as is possible) from the beginning.

    Grande Loge de Tasmanie

    Grande Loge de Tasmanie

    A Brief History

    This is but a brief history, first in Van Diemen's Land as we were known, then later as Tasmania.  From individual Lodges, to what we have today.

    Amongst the arrivals in Hobart Town from Norfolk Island in 1807/08 when that settlement was abandoned were a number of Masons who belonged to a Lodge known as St Johns Lodge No 1. This Lodge did not possess a Charter but there is evidence that it existed both on Norfolk Island and later in Van Diemens Land. There is no record of meetings in Hobart Town but press reports between 1814 and 1820 give details  of their activity.

    In 1825 the 40th Regiment 2nd battalion South Lancashire arrived in Van Diemens Land having attached to it Thorntons Lodge No 284 Irish Constitution. It was a common practice for these travelling Charters to be attached to Regiments.  There are records of this Lodge admitting Civilians in 1825.This Lodge issued a Dispensation in March 1827 for a Civilian Lodge to be formed in Hobart Town.

    A principled way of life

    Freemasonry offers men a principled way of life, a sense of belonging and of personal growth. The principles by which a Freemason is expected to conduct himself are based on tolerance, equality, charity and honour. Freemasons demonstrate these principles by showing tolerance and respect for the opinions of others, behaving with kindness and understanding and practicing charity and care for their community. Freemasons illustrate these principles for new members through ceremonies which utilize the tools of medieval stonemasonry as symbols.

    Freemasonry recognizes the richness of all cultural beliefs and excludes no individual from membership on the basis of race or politics. Though Freemasons are required to profess a belief in a Supreme Being the specifics of a Freemasons belief are considered to be a personal matter.

    Freemasons pursue their personal development by working towards the betterment of all humanity through widespread community involvement. Freemasonry offers its support at all levels from local fundraising to international relief efforts such as the Tools for Timor and Eplitiya projects.

    Freemasons Victoria has been active in the community for over 170 years. It established the Freemasons hospital in 1937 and the Royal Freemasons Homes of Victoria in 1867 for the care of the elderly in our community.

    The United Grand Lodge of Victoria is the representative body for Victorian Freemasonry.

    DIE GESCHICHTE DER "GEMISCHTEN" FREIMAUREREI

     

    Über den Ursprung der Freimaurerei ist schon sehr viel geschrieben worden, Wahres und Phantastisches. Sicher geht die Freimaurerei auf die Tradition der alten Bauhütten des Mittelalters zurück. Die Gründung der Freimaurerei erfolgte Anfang des 18. Jahrhunderts. In der damaligen Konstitution waren die Regeln festgelegt, nach denen die Logen arbeiten mussten. Es waren auch die Anforderungen verzeichnet, die man an zukünftige Freimaurer stellte. Die Mitgliedschaft von Frauen war untersagt, da diese nicht als "frei" angesehen wurden.

     

    Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts kämpften Freimaurer für die Zulassung von Frauen in die Logen. Man lehnte die sogenannten "Adoptionslogen" ab, die nur unter der Kontrolle von Männerlogen bestehen konnten.

     

    Maria Deraismes, die im Jahre 1882 in eine Männerloge eingeweiht wurde, gründete am 4. April 1883 mit Unterstützung des Arztes Georges Martin die gemischte Loge "Symbolische Schottische Großloge "LE DROIT HUMAIN" in Paris.

     

    Georges Martin und Maria Deraismes hofften auf diese Weise, einen Beitrag für die Emanzipation der Frau zu leisten im Rahmen einer breiten Strukturreform auf wirtschaftlicher, politischer und sozialer Ebene.

     

    Verschiedene Logen wurden später sowohl in Frankreich als auch in anderen Ländern gegründet. Es gibt derzeit in 60 Ländern und auf die fünf Kontinente verteilt Logen. Die Mitglieder des "DROIT HUMAIN" sind der Ansicht, dass Männer und Frauen in der Loge dieselben Ideale haben und entsprechend ihrer gemeinsamen Prinzipien von Freiheit, Gleichheit und Brüderlichkeit an ihrer individuellen Weiterentwicklung für eine bessere Welt miteinander arbeiten.

    Großorient von Österreich

    Großorient von Österreich

    Der Großorient von Österreich (GOÖ) ist eine Dachorganisation von Freimaurerlogen, die nach den Grundsätzen der Straßburger Deklaration des CLIPSAS vom 22. Jänner 1961 als gerechte und vollkommene Logen gegründet wurden. Sein Ziel ist es, diesen Logen als Großloge im Sinne der

    liberalen Freimaurerei einen größtmöglichen Entfaltungsraum einzuräumen.

    Der Großorient von Österreich versteht sich als pluralistisch. Unterschiedliche freimaurerische Rituale sind in Männer-, Frauen- und gemischten Logen gleichberechtigt nebeneinander möglich.

    Der Großorient von Österreich vereint in seinen Logen Freimaurer beiderlei Geschlechts ohne Unterschied von Herkunft, Religion und Weltanschauung.

    Der Großorient von Österreich ist Gründungsmitglied des CLIPSAS (Centre de Liaison et d’Information des Puissances maçonniques Signataires de l’Appel de Strasbourg, 22 janvier 1961).

    Er bekennt sich in dessen Sinne zur absoluten Gewissensfreiheit und zur Toleranz. CLIPSAS ist ein Verbindungs- und Informationszentrum der freimaurerischen Signaturoboedienzen der Straßburger

    Deklaration, in dem mittlerweile über 50 Oboedienzen weltweit verbunden sind.

     

    Liberale Freimaurerei bezeichnet ein freimaurerisches dezentrales heterosoziales Netzwerk von Freimaurerlogen und Großlogen auf der Grundlage der „absoluten Gewissensfreiheit“. Dieses neue

    Konzept der Freimaurerei wurde auf dem Konvent des Grand Orient de France von 1887 geboren.

    Wie alle Menschenrechte ist die Idee eng verbunden mit dem Humanismus und der im Zeitalter der Aufklärung entwickelten Idee des Naturrechts. Satzungen heutiger liberaler Großlogen betonen neben diesem Freiheitsrecht weitere, insbesondere die Versammlungs- und Religionsfreiheit und

    soziale Menschenrechte wie Selbstbestimmung, die Gleichberechtigung von Frau und Mann und auch die Kontrolle von Macht durch Gewaltenteilung.

    Liberalismus steht im Gegensatz zum Totalitarismus und begründete in der Geschichte die Emanzipation von überlieferten Dogmen aus dem Feudalismus und Absolutismus, daher bezeichnen sich einige liberale Großlogen auch als „adogmatisch“. Aus Gründen der absoluten

    Gewissensfreiheit und der Selbstbestimmung bleibt es Mitgliedslogen liberaler Großlogen

    überlassen, ob sie ihre maurerische Arbeit unter den Schutz des Allmächtigen Baumeisters aller Welten und das heilige Buch einer Offenbarungsreligion stellen oder sich davon distanzieren.

    Liberalen Großlogen sind darin frei, ob sich ihre Logen als Vereinigungen nur für Frauen, nur für Männer oder für beiderlei Geschlecht konstituieren, solange diese auf Grundlage der Versammlungsfreiheit und dem sozialen Menschenrecht der Teilhabe am kulturellen Leben grundsätzlich alle Freimaurer zu ihren Arbeiten ohne jeden Unterschied zulassen und ohne dabei

    ein Recht auf Gegenseitigkeit zu fordern. Ebenso respektieren sie alle freimaurerischen Traditionen, Riten, Symbole und Überzeugungen.

  • Fédération belge du Droit Humain

    Fédération belge du Droit Humain

     « Le Droit Humain » est un Ordre maçonnique mixte et international. Son origine remonte à la fin du XIXe siècle. La première Loge belge a été créée en 1912. Actuellement, plus de nonante Loges, réparties sur le territoire national, sont organisées sous le nom de la Fédération belge du Droit Humain. La Fédération belge a son siège à Bruxelles. Elle est autonome dans l’Ordre international, dont le siège est à Paris. Les hommes et les femmes qui sont membres du Droit Humain aspirent au développement de la personne et adhèrent aux principes de la libre expression ainsi qu’à la Déclaration des Droits de l'Homme. Œuvrant en commun et sur un pied d’égalité, ils ne font aucune distinction de couleur de peau, de sexe ou de langue. Ils mettent toutes les convictions, à condition qu’elles soient non dogmatiques, tolérantes, respectueuses des autres. Une préoccupation essentielle des réunions est de réfléchir sur la manière de concrétiser les idéaux maçonniques. Les échanges d’idées se déroulent suivant une méthode spécifique. Fondée sur des rituels et des symboles, elle permet une écoute active de l'opinion d’autrui, pour autant qu’elle soit empreinte de tolérance, qu’elle soit conforme aux principes du libre examen et qu’elle soit dénuée de parti pris.

    Grande Loge Féminine de Belgique

    L'évolution générale de nos sociétés a entraîné celle de la femme; l'accélération de l'histoire, les progrès des sciences et des techniques ont bousculé les conceptions traditionnelles. La femme, consciente de ses libertés et de ses devoirs, ainsi que de sa capacité à façonner un monde plus humain, est irrésistiblement entraînée vers des responsabilités nouvelles, qu'elles soient d'ordre économique, social, moral ou spirituel. En tant que femme libre et responsable, elle se doit de participer pleinement à la construction d'une société où elle est à la fois un facteur d'évolution et de transmission des traditions. Par la Franc-maçonnerie, la femme peut acquérir sagesse, équilibre et force pour entreprendre cette aventure. En effet, la tradition initiatique et son symbolisme permettent une maturation par l'enrichissement individuel et collectif et l'approfondissemernt des connaissances. En choisissant la Franc-maçonnerie féminine, elle estime pouvoir être plus apte à mener ce travail à bien, oeuvrant avec d'autres femmes dont les sensibilités sont proches de la sienne.

    Grande Oriente do Brasil

    Grande Oriente do Brasil

    Embora tenha, a Maçonaria brasileira, se iniciado em 1797 com a Loja Cavaleiros da Luz, criada na povoação da Barra, em Salvador, Bahia, e ainda com a Loja União, em 1800, sucedida pela Loja Reunião em 1802, no Rio de Janeiro, só em 1822, quando a campanha pela independência do Brasil se tornava mais intensa, é que iria ser criada sua primeira Obediência, com Jurisdição nacional, exatamente com a incumbência de levar a cabo o processo de emancipação política do país. Criado a 17 de junho de 1822, por três Lojas do Rio de Janeiro - a Commercio e Artes na Idade do Ouro e mais a União e Tranquilidade e a Esperança de Niterói, resultantes da divisão da primeira - O Grande Oriente Brasileiro teve, como seus primeiros mandatários José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva, ministro do Reino e de Estrangeiros e Joaquim Gonçalves Ledo, Primeiro Vigilante. A 4 de outubro do mesmo ano, já após a declaração de independência de 7 de setembro, José Bonifácio foi substituído pelo então príncipe regente e, logo depois, Imperador D. Pedro I (Irmão Guatimozim). Presente em Brasília - capital do país, desde 1960 - onde se instalou em 1978, o Grande Oriente do Brasil tem, hoje, um patrimônio considerável, e em diversos Estados, além do Rio de Janeiro, e na Capital Federal, onde sua sede ocupa um edifício com 7.800 metros quadrados de área construída. Com aproximadamente 2.000 Lojas, cerca de 61.500 obreiros ativos (31.12.1999), reconhecido por mais de 100 Obediências regulares do mundo, o Grande Oriente do Brasil é, hoje, a maior Obediência Maçônica do mundo latino e reconhecida como regular e legítima pela Grande Loja Unida da Inglaterra, de acordo com os termos do Tratado de 1935.

    Grande Loge de Cuba

    Historia Masónica Cubana Fresco que adorna la entrada del edificio de la Gran Logia donde se muestra la participación de la masonería en diferentes etapas de las luchas por la independencia de nuestro país. La rica historia masónica de Cuba es tan extensa que nos vemos obligados a mostrar en esta redacción un resumen de la totalidad de los mismos, o sea los puntos más relevantes, que nos permiten mostrar al mundo lo grande que ha sido, es y será nuestra fraternidad en Cuba. La masonería no es una organización política, aunque en ocasiones sus miembros fueron perseguidos por causas políticas. Tampoco es una secta religiosa, aunque sus adeptos confiesan una fe absoluta hacia sus principios. En el pasado la Iglesia Católica los trató como a herejes y muchas monarquías los consideraban una amenaza fatal para sus coronas por su insistente vocación de oponerse a cualquier tiranía religiosa o política. Sin embargo, todavía hoy, cuando la humanidad parece haber perdido su cordura, los masones se reúnen y trabajan regularmente con la esperanza de redimirla. Pero, indudablemente, la masonería ya ha dejado atrás sus momentos más gloriosos, cuando los nombres de grandes literatos, músicos, y pensadores prestigiaban sus filas. Muy lejos ha quedado aquella época dorada en que Mozart escribía su cantata masónica "El elogio a la amistad", inspirado en los ideales de la hermandad, o los revolucionarios del 89 franceses gritaban por las calles de París el lema masón de Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité. Pero desde George Washington a Benito Juárez (sin olvidar a Walt Disney) es innegable la influencia social que ha tenido esta asociación fraternal en la historia moderna. En Cuba la masonería también cuenta con un pasado ilustre, indisolublemente ligado a la formación misma de la nacionalidad y en sus filas militaron los hombres que luego lucharon por la independencia del país. Quizás muchos piensen que sus antiguos ritos y liturgias ya no se avienen con el mundo postmoderno y que, como institución que se propone alcanzar el mejoramiento de la sociedad, aunque sin propiciar cambios sociales, ya resulta obsoleta. Paradójicamente, la masonería en la isla tiene ahora una membresía creciente, por lo que no resulta ocioso reflexionar sobre el papel de esta institución en la historia de la nación y su innegable resurgimiento en la actualidad. El artículo primero, inciso I de la Constitución Masónica Cubana declara que "La masonería es la institución orgánica de la moralidad", la moral entendida como el respeto a sí mismo y a la sociedad en la que se asienta, y este criterio representa la aspiración a un estilo de vida por el que deben distinguirse los masones, no sólo dentro de la fraternidad, sino también en cualquier medio donde se encuentre. 2011 Gran Logia de Cuba de A.L. y A.M.

  • Den Danske Frimurerorden

    Den Danske Frimurerorden

    Den Danske Frimurerorden er en orden, hvor mænd af forskellige sociale klasser, erhverv og aldre mødes for at arbejde på deres personlige udvikling og til at socialisere sig på en værdig måde for der igennem at være med til at styrke bevarelsen af vor gamle kulturarv.

     

    I en tid hvor jag presser os hårdere og hårdere, hvor usikkerhed om fremtiden, opskrivningen af det materielle og tabet af traditionelle værdier danner grobund for en voksende fremmedgørelse mellem mennesker, har frimureriet noget vigtigt at give.

     

    Den Danske Frimurerorden ser det som en meget stor opgave at bevare respekten for det enkelte menneske og menneskets egen indre værdi. Denne indre værdi er og skal være ukrænkelig og uafhængig af den hurtigt fremadskridende udvikling.

     

    Den Danske Frimurerorden er en selvstændig frimurerorganisation, som ikke er underordnet nogen anden frimurermyndighed Den indeholder 91 loger med tilsammen ca. 9.500 medlemmer, fordelt over hele landet. Ordenen har i mere end 275 år været en vital del af det danske samfund, hvor flere af Danmarks prinser og konger har været medlemmer.

     

    Et medlem (en såkaldt broder) af en loge i Den Danske Frimurerorden kan deltage i logemøder i andre loger i Den Danske Frimurerorden. Et medlem kan således deltage i logemøder over hele landet.

     

    Idet Den Danske Frimurerorden anerkender og anerkendes af ca. 150 udenlandske frimurerordener og storloger, hvori der tilsammen findes flere tusinde loger, kan medlemmer af Den Danske Frimurerorden også deltage i logemøder i udlandet.

     

    Medlemmer af udenlandske loger deltager på tilsvarende vis i logemøder i Den Danske Frimurerorden.

    Storlogen af Danmark

    Storlogen af Danmark

    Frimureriets formål er at skabe en bedre verden for alle mennesker, og lære ethvert medlem af en frimurerloge, at være frimurer. For at opfylde dette formål, hjælper frimurerne hvor de kan og forsøger at forbedre sig selv. Vi kalder os frimurere, fordi frimureren bør have en tankevirksomhed som er fri for fordomme og forudfattede meninger, og fordi vi bruger symboler hentet fra bygningskunsten til beskrive det som ikke kan siges med ord. At være rigtig frimurer er et ideal, et mål om du vil, som intet menneske her på jorden kan opfylde.

     

    Storlogen

     

    Storlogen af Danmark af Gamle Frie & Antagne Murere blev oprindeligt konstitueret den 14. april 1929 som et samarbejde mellem "Stororienten af Danmark og Norden" og "Den Danske Stororient af Gamle Frie & Antagne Murere".

     

    Storlogen af Danmark af Gamle Frie & Antagne Murere" arbejder efter De Gamle Landemærker (The Ancient Landmarks). Det betyder blandt andet, at:

     

        Adgangen til at blive frimurer står åben for enhver mand af moden alder og gode sæder, uden hensyn til hans nationalitet, race, religion, politiske opfattelse og stand eller stilling i det borgerlige samfund

        Frimureren er forpligtet til, altid at adlyde sin samvittighed. Ved at gøre dette vil han aldrig være en tåbelig gudsfornægter

        Frimurerens arbejde sker til ære for "Verdens Store Bygmester"

        Frimureren er forpligtet til, altid, at adlyde lovene i det land han måtte befinde sig i

     

    Storlogen af Danmark af Gamle Frie & Antagne Murere har på nuværende tidspunkt ingen officielle kontakter til "Den Danske Frimurerorden" på Blegdamsvej i København, der arbejder efter et svensk, rent kristent system.

     

    Højgrader

     

    Storlogen af Danmark tillader sine medlemmer at deltage i højgradssystemer, for så vidt disse ikke gør krav på medbestemmelse i logerne under storlogen af Danmark. Et sådan system er for eksempel "Stororienten af Danmark af Gamle Frie & Antagne Murere", der arbejder efter det skotske 33. grads system.

    Internationalt

     

    Storlogen af Danmark arbejder efter det gamle engelske York Rite og har i dag forbindelse med storloger over hele verden. Storlogen er medlem af den internationale storloge-sammenslutning C.L.I.P.S.A.S.

  • Federación Española de El Derecho Humano

    Federación Española de El Derecho Humano

    La Orden Masónica El Derecho Humano es una institución iniciática, filosófica y filantrópica que trabaja en favor del progreso de la humanidad. Para conseguir este objetivo, sus integrantes deben perseguir el perfeccionamiento moral e intelectual propio.

     

    No admitimos dogmas, por ello nuestros trabajos se realizan al márgen de cualquier religión, escuela filosófica o partido político. Nuestro ritmo de trabajo se basa en la ética laica, la que garantiza a todos los seres humanos la libertad absoluta de conciencia y de pensamiento, con espíritu de tolerancia. Para nosotros, en esto consiste favorecer el desarrollo del humanismo.

    La Iniciación masónica y el resto de los trabajos que desarrollamos tienen como finalidad proporcionarnos un modo propio de entender la condición humana. Es un viaje que parte de una Iniciación. En ella se le propone; a quien la vive, una experiencia irrepetible que le sirve para conocerse mejor, para comprender a los demás y para trabajar en favor de un mundo mejor, por ello, el ritual le invita a “llevar fuera la tarea comenzada en el Templo”.

    El Derecho Humano se distingue de otras obediencias masónicas por tres rasgos específicos: el carácter mixto, el ser internacional y la continuidad iniciática.

     

     

    EL CARÁCTER MIXTO

    El Derecho Humano proclama que la mujer y el hombre son iguales, condición indispensable para toda sociedad de progreso y garantía de equilibrio y desarrollo armónico para las generaciones futuras.

     

    EL SER INTERNACIONAL

    Sin distinción de nacionalidades, etnias, culturas ni religiones, los francmasones y francmasonas del Derecho Humano están unidos por un mismo ideal y conciben al ser humano en su globalidad, prescindiendo de los particularismos que encierran los gérmenes de la segregación, de la exclusión y de la barbarie.

    En este sentido hay que destacar que El Derecho Humano es la única orden masónica mixta, la única que se dedica a todos los seres humanos sin exclusión. El resto de obediencias masónicas están al servicio de algunos grupos sociales o geográficos de la Humanidad. Así, la mayoría de Obediencias son nacionales y se dedican, con prioridad, a las cuestiones de su país.

    LA CONTINUIDAD INICIÁTICA

    En El Derecho Humano trabajamos el Rito Escocés Antiguo y Aceptado con sus 33 grados. Con ellos, se indica el nivel masónico alcanzado.

    Todas las obediencias masónicas no trabajan el mismo rito, ni están organizadas como El Derecho Humano que agrupa en una misma estructura a todos los talleres de cualquier grado.

     

    Ha pasado más de un siglo desde que nació El Derecho Humano y las palabras de Georges Martín, fundador del mismo, siguen de plena actualidad:

     

    La Francmasonería Mixta no se trata de un nuevo culto sino de una filosofía humanista que pretende impregnar sus valores en el terreno social. El Derecho Humano, la paz entre los pueblos de toda la tierra, la Libertad, la Igualdad, la Fraternidad: he ahí los preceptos de la Francmasonería Mixta que darán a luz a la justicia, la tolerancia y la solidaridad.

    Gran Logia de España

    La Gran Logia de España es la Obediencia masónica regular en España, y por tanto el cuerpo masónico que mantiene lazos de amistad y reconocimiento con todas las Grandes Logias regulares de todo el mundo. Con ellas comparte  los antiguos principios de la Fraternidad masónica universal, así como una Tradición iniciática que explica la extraordinaria vitalidad que la francmasonería aun conserva en nuestros días. Además la Gran Logia de España es depositaria del legado histórico del Grande Oriente Español que tras su regreso del exilio quedó fusionado con la Obediencia.

    Gran Logia Simbólica Española

    Gran Orient de Catalunya

    Gran Orient de Catalunya

    El sistema simbòlic maçònic s'ha format al llarg dels temps i manlleva els seus principals elements de les eines, els instruments i els conceptes que feien servir els mestres d'obres i picapedrers antics (i, en bona part, també els actuals) per a llur treball constructiu. De fet, el sistema simbòlic francmaçònic constitueix una vasta metàfora de l'art constructiva aplicada a l'autoconstrucció de cada persona i de tota la Humanitat.

     

    El Simbolisme de la Francmaçoneria moderna consisteix en el fet que els maçons representen alhora l'obrer i el material damunt el qual aquest obrer treballa. Es parla de la construcció del Temple de la Humanitat amb les pedres que són els maçons i maçones. Aquests arriben a la llotja com una pedra basta i el treball consisteix a desbastar-ne els caires malformats i confusos i polir-ne la superfície fins a arribar a fer-ne una pedra cúbica, que és la perfecció, és a dir, l'ideal vers el qual cal tendir encara que sapiguem que mai no l'assolirem del tot.

     

    Aquest treball simbòlic es fa en tres etapes o graus fonamentals: com a aprenent, com a fadrí i com a mestre maçó.

    Grande Oriente Ibérico

    Grande Oriente Ibérico

    El “conócete a ti mismo”, este “Gnoti Seauton” grabado en el frontispicio del templo de Delfos, queda al centro del trabajo masónico: pulir su piedra, es buscar un grado creciente de libre juicio y lucidez. Es un trabajo íntimo y personal que se aproxima a la experiencia estética de un pintor o escultor cuya personalidad evoluciona a medida que inventa formas, ideas, estéticas nuevas. Pero pulir su piedra ignorando el sentido de este trabajo es el colmo de la alienación: frente a la dificultad creciente de imaginar el futuro y penetrar el espesor del presente, tambaleado entre un devenir incomprendido y un presente cuyo rumbo se nos escapa, nuestra memoria se hace pasión frágil y obsesiva. Es la paradoja de una libertad sin poder, sinónimo de desposesión íntima, de identidad cuestionada, de una conquista en la cual se arriesga hundirse. De aquí la importancia, antes de emprender este enfrentamiento de sí a sí, de saber interpretar los símbolos y metáforas, mojones en este camino racional ofrecido por la FM para separar saber y creer.

    Kansainvälinen Yhteis-Vapaamuurarijärjestö »Le Droit Humain» Suomen Liitto ry

     

    Kansainvälinen vapaamuurarijärjestö miehille ja naisille Suomessa jo vuodesta 1920.

    Looshit ja tavoitteet

     

    Yhteisvapaamuurarit toimivat 15–30 jäsenen muodostamissa loosheissa. Monipuolinen kokoustekniikka periytyy keski­aikaisilta katedraalin­rakentajilta.

    Ihmisyyteen kouluttautumisen yhteisö

     

    Vapaamuurarit katsovat edustavansa nykymaailmassa vanhan mysteeri­koulun perinnettä. Harjaan­nuttamalla itseään taipumustensa mukaisesti ihminen oppii syvemmin tuntemaan itseään ja elämää.

    Yhteydenotto

     

    Yhteisvapaamuurarius on tarkoitettu fyysisesti, psyykkisesti ja henkisesti terveille täysi-ikäisille (18 v.) naisille ja miehille, jotka ovat nuhteettomia maineeltaan ja henkisesti vapaita. Jos olet kiinnostunut jäsenyydestä yhteis­vapaa­muurari­looshissa, ota yhteyttä. Olemme valmiit keskus­telemaan ja selvittämään, onko vapaa­muurarius sitä, mitä sinä etsit.

    Suomen Suurloosi

    Suomen Suurloosi

    Mitä vapaamuurarius on?

    Loosi on toiminnan kivijalka

     

    Kaikki vapaamuurariharrastuksen ydintoiminnat tapahtuvat sen perusyksiköissä, looseissa. Ns. sininen vapaamuurarius (engl. craft), jossa järjestön kolme ensimmäistä astetta saadaan, muodostaa koko toiminnan kivijalan. Näitä sinisiä looseja toimii Suomessa n. 160 kappaletta, maan eri kaupungeissa. Niiden keskikoko on nelisenkymmentä veljeä. Kutakin loosia johtaa sen mestari.

     

    Siniset loosit ovat perustaneet keskusjärjestökseen Suomen Suurloosin. Sen alaisissa looseissa on nykyään (v. 2010) jäseniä lähes 6800. Suurloosi kokoontuu kerran vuodessa vuosi-istuntoonsa. Siellä päätetään järjestön tärkeät asiat ja valitaan järjestön puheenjohtaja. Tätä vapaamuurarit kutsuvat suurmestariksi.

     

    Suurloosin päätehtävänä on tukea loosien toimintaa. Sen se tekee mm. järjestämällä koulutusta ja julkaisutoiminnan avulla. Suurloosi julkaisee Koilliskulma -nimistä jäsenlehteä. Se on vapaasti järjestöön kuulumattomienkin tilattavissa. Nämä internet-sivutkin ovat suurloosin ylläpitämät.

    Ei kansainvälistä keskusjohtoa

     

    Suurloosin tehtävänä on hoitaa myös järjestön ulkosuhteita, ts. suhteita ympäröivään yhteiskuntaan ja muiden maiden suurlooseihin. Eri maissa toimivilla itsenäisillä, toisensa tunnustaneilla suurlooseilla ei ole kansainvälistä keskusjärjestöä, vaan ne toimivat suvereenisesti omissa maissaan. Vapaamuurarit voivat vierailla näiden suurloosien alaisten loosien istunnoissa.  

     

    Suurloosin toimisto-organisaatio on kevyt. Sillä on lisäksi joukko toimikuntia eri asioiden valmisteluun ja ylläpitoon. Esimerkiksi vapaamuurarikirjaston ja -museon toiminnoista vastaavat tällaiset toimikunnat. Suurloosilla on myös piiriorganisaatio. Se koostuu suunnilleen maakuntajakoa noudattavista yhdestätoista vapaamuuraripiiristä.

    Hyväntekeväisyystoiminta

     

    Osa vapaamuurarien hyväntekeväisyystoimista kanavoituu suurloosin kautta, mutta enintä osaa siitä hoitavat karitatiivisiin päämääriin tähtäävät säätiöt ja yhdistykset. Sellaisia ovat mm. Vanhusten ja Lasten tukisäätiö ja Sompala-seura. Viimeksi mainittu tarjoaa sosiaalisin perustein tapahtuvaa leiri- ja virkistystoimintaa kesäaikaan. Se on toimijoille joko täysin ilmaista tai omakustannushintaista. Niin ikään itsenäiset organisaatiot ylläpitävät palveluasuntoja eräillä muuraripaikkakunnilla.

     

    Niitä vapaamuurareita varten, jotka haluavat syventää ja laajentaa harrastustaan, toimii Suomessa kuusi vapaamuurarillista järjestöä, jotka antavat ns. liitännäisasteita. Noin puolet sinisten loosien jäsenistä kuuluu yhteen tai useampaan näistä järjestöistä. Kaikki ne edellyttävät jäseniltään siniseen muurariloosiin kuulumista. Suomen Suurloosin ja sen liitännäisjärjestöjen lisäksi Suomessa toimii myös ruotsalainen vapaamuurarijärjestö.

  • Grand Orient de France (GODF)

    Grand Orient de France (GODF)

    Le Grand Orient de France est une association qui est animée par deux grands principes apparemment contradictoires : le respect d'une Tradition héritée des fondateurs de la Franc-Maçonnerie et la recherche de progrès pour l'amélioration de l'Homme et de la Société. Le respect de la Tradition est ce qui fait de la Franc-Maçonnerie et du Grand Orient de France en particulier, une société initiatique. Dans les Loges Maçonniques, des rituels et des symboles sont utilisés dans le déroulement des réunions et dans la progression personnelle des Francs-Maçons dans leur démarche au sein de l'association. Les plus connus de ces symboles sont les trois points, l'équerre et le compas. Leur signification philosophique et morale ne saurait être révélée sans en altérer la profondeur ; c'est là la seule signification du secret maçonnique.

    Grande Loge de France (GLF)

    La Grande Loge de France (GLDF), a été fondée à Paris le 7 novembre 1894. La GLDF est une Obédience nationale indépendante et souveraine dont la devise se confond avec celle de la République : Liberté - Egalité - Fraternité, et qui proclame son indéfectible fidélité et dévouement à ces principes. Ordre initiatique traditionnel et universel fondé sur la fraternité, la Grande Loge de France respecte les anciennes obligations traditionnelles de la Franc-Maçonnerie Universelle : elle travaille à la Gloire du Grand Architecte de l’Univers, en présence des trois Grandes Lumières de la Franc-Maçonnerie qui sont l’Equerre, le Compas et le Volume de la Loi Sacrée (qui, dans nos Loges, est la Bible). Conformément aux anciens devoirs du métier des bâtisseurs des grands édifices du moyen-âge, la Grande Loge de France a pour but principal le perfectionnement de l’Homme. Elle réunit exclusivement ceux qu’elle a choisis selon des critères de qualité éthiques et humains. Profondément attachée à la tolérance, elle ne s’immisce dans aucune controverse touchant à des questions politiques ou religieuses. Cette fédération pratique presque exclusivement le Rite Écossais Ancien Accepté, dispose de la revue Point de vue Initiatique et s'extériorise par les conférences du cercle Condorcet-Brossolette. Elle travaille "à la gloire du Grand Architecte de l'Univers". Les obligations sont prêtées sur les trois Lumières : l'équerre, le compas, le livre de la loi sacrée (généralement La Bible).

    Le Droit Humain (DH)

    Le Droit Humain (DH)

    INITIATIQUE, PHILOSOPHIQUE, PHILANTHROPIQUE, LE DROIT HUMAIN EST MIXTE.

     

    En créant le Droit Humain, ses fondateurs, Maria Deraismes et Georges Martin, marquaient une irréversible évolution, affirmant l’égalité de l’homme et de la femme devant l’initiation maçonnique.

    Maria Deraismes, le 14 janvier 1882, fut la première femme initiée en France : transgression fondatrice des Francs-maçons de la Loge exclusivement masculine « Les Libres Penseurs », Grande Loge Symbolique Écossaise, à l’Orient du Pecq. 14 Mars 1893 : Maria Deraismes initie 16 femmes. 4 Avril 1893 : elle crée la Grande Loge Symbolique Écossaise « Le Droit Humain », obédience mixte qui se transforme, en 1901, en Ordre Maçonnique Mixte International « Le Droit Humain ».

    Aujourd’hui, la mixité continue d’être le symbole de toute l’avancée sociale. Elle est une véritable force motrice dans la réflexion commune pratiquée en loge mixte. Le « Droit Humain », dans la liberté, l’égalité, la fraternité, crée à deux voix l’évolution d’une pensée libre afin d’apprendre et de transmettre. Par la défense de : la laïcité, la loi de 1905, la liberté de conscience et d’expression, les droits de l’homme et de la femme, et contre toutes formes d’intégrismes, de racisme et d’antisémitisme, le Droit Humain continue d’oeuvrer pour les droits de l’être humain et des citoyens par-delà les frontières. Son but est de rapprocher et de défendre de façon égale les deux moitiés du genre humain qui ont les mêmes besoins et les mêmes intérêts, dans la famille comme dans la société. L’association de ces deux êtres, leur accession à un progrès moral, intellectuel et matériel partagés sont des conditions incontournables de la réalisation d’une société en progrès. Hommes et femmes sont uniques, égaux comme des semblables sans être « ni le même, ni la même », leur différence étant une richesse afin de progresser, d’imaginer une construction prospective et humaniste. C’est également un gage d’équilibre et de développement harmonieux pour les générations futures.

    "LE DROIT HUMAIN -

    ΤΟ ΑΝΘΡΩΠΙΝΟ ΔΙΚΑΙΟ"

     

    Οι Αρχές μας, 

     

    Οι Αρχές του Δ:.Μ:.Τ:.Τ:. «Το Ανθρώπινο Δίκαιο» απεικονίζονται στα πρώτα άρθρα του Διεθνούς Συντάγματός του, καί στην ουσία τους έχουν μείνει αναλλοίωτες από το 1ο Διεθνές Συνέδριο του 1920. Παραθέτουμε στη συνέχεια τα άρθρα αυτά:

     

     

     

    Άρθρο 1- Θεμελιώδης αρχή του Τάγματος

     

    Το Διεθνές Μικτό Τεκτονικό Τάγμα «LE DROIT HUMAIN (ΑΝΘΡΩΠΙΝΟ ΔΙΚΑΙΟ)» διακηρύσσει την ισότητα του άνδρα και της γυναίκας.

     

    Με την ανακήρυξη της επωνυμίας «ΑΝΘΡΩΠΙΝΟ ΔΙΚΑΙΟ», το Τάγμα επιθυμεί να μπορέσουν άνδρες και γυναίκες, σ΄ όλη τη γη, να απολαμβάνουν, κατά τρόπο ισότιμο, κοινωνική δικαιοσύνη σε μιάν ανθρωπότητα οργανωμένη σε ελεύθερες και αδελφικές κοινωνίες.

     

     

    Άρθρο 2 – Στόχος του Τάγματος

     

    Αποτελούμενο από Ελευθεροτέκτονες, άνδρες και γυναίκες αδελφικά ενωμένους, χωρίς διάκριση κοινωνικού, εθνικού, φιλοσοφικού ή θρησκευτικού χαρακτήρα, το Τάγμα χρησιμοποιεί, για την επίτευξη αυτού του στόχου, μια τελετουργική και συμβολική μέθοδο, χάρη στην οποία τα μέλη του οικοδομούν τον Ναό τους γιά την πρόοδο και την τελειοποίηση της ανθρωπότητας.

     

     

    Άρθρο 3 - Αρχές του Τάγματος

     

    Πιστά στην αρχή της ανεξαρτησίας του κράτους από θρησκευτικά κέντρα ή άλλες οργανώσεις, με σεβασμό στην απόλυτη ελευθερία συνείδησης του καθένα, τα μέλη του Τάγματος εργάζονται για να συγκεκριμενοποιήσουν τις αρχές της ελευθερίας, της ισότητας και της αδελφότητας και για να υλοποιήσουν, για όλους τους ανθρώπους, το μέγιστο της ηθικής, διανοητικής και πνευματικής ανάπτυξης, γεγονός πού αποτελεί την πρώτη προϋπόθεση ευτυχίας, πού μπορεί να επιτύχει κάθε άτομο σε μιαν ανθρωπότητα αδελφικά οργανωμένη.

     

     

    Άρθρο 4 – Σύνθεση του Τάγματος

     

    Το Τάγμα είναι οργανωμένο σε Ομοσπονδίες, Δικαιοδοσίες και Πρωτοπόρες (Πιονιέρικες) Στοές στους κόλπους των οποίων οι Ελευθεροτέκτονες, που έχουν ορκιστεί να σέβονται το Διεθνές Σύνταγμα του ΑΝΘΡΩΠΙΝΟΥ ΔΙΚΑΙΟΥ, συναντώνται σε Εργαστήρια κάθε βαθμού, πού έχουν λάβει την Καταστατική τους Χάρτα από το Ύπατο Συμβούλιο του Τάγματος.

     

     

    Άρθρο 5 – Σκοποί του Τάγματος

     

    Το Τάγμα δεν αποδέχεται κανένα δόγμα και αρνείται κάθε δογματισμό. Εργάζεται αναζητώντας την αλήθεια.

    Για το λόγο αυτό, στα Εργαστήρια, οι συζητήσεις ή ο διάλογος σχετικά με πολιτικά ή θρησκευτικά ζητήματα σε καμμία περίπτωση δεν μπορούν να έχουν άλλο σκοπό εκτός από το να διαφωτίσουν τα μέλη και να τους επιτρέψουν να ασκήσουν με μεγαλύτερη επίγνωση τα καθήκοντά τους ως Ελευθεροτέκτονες.

  • Grande Loge (Regulière) d'Inde

    Grande Loge (Regulière) d'Inde

    THE BIRTH OF THE GRAND LODGE OF INDIA It was towards the end of October 1959 that the Most W. Grand Masters of England, Ireland and the Immediate Past Grand Master Mason of Scotland met in London to discuss the future of Freemasonry in India. The three Grand Masters considered that "an independent Grand Lodge of India is desirable and that its establishment should....be gradually but actively pursued." A representative Steering Committee was set up consisting exclusively of Indian Brethren in proportion to the number of Lodges under each of the three Constitutions, with R.W.Bro Lt.Gen. Sir Harold Williams, K.B.E., C.B., as Chairman, with the aim of establishing an independent Grand Lodge of India on the best possible foundations. The Steering Committee met at important centers of Masonic activities in the North, East, South and West of India and its report was unanimously signed early October 1960. On December 1, the three Grand Masters issued "Notes on the proposed Grand Lodge of India for the information and guidance of Lodges in India." Therein they reiterated their declared attitude towards an independent Grand Lodge of India, but left it to Lodges in India to decide whether to opt for or against joining such a body, adding that if the Brethren in India decided in favor of an independent Grand Lodge, they would accept the decision and establish with it the closest fraternal relations and that Lodges not wishing to participate would continue to enjoy the existing rights under their respective Grand Lodges. Out of a total of 277 individual Lodges in India (excluding Pakistan, Ceylon and Aden, which were excluded for the poll) 145 opted for the new Grand Lodge of India. This represented a little over 52 per cent. INAUGURAL MEETING The Grand Lodge of India was officially constituted at ten minutes to six o'clock on Friday the 24th November 1961 in the Ashoka Hotel, New Delhi. There were three delegations from the Grand Lodge of Scotland, Ireland and England in that order. After the three delegations were received and greeted, the Grand Master Mason of Scotland proceeded with the Consecration. Thereafter, The Deputy Grand Master of Ireland officially constituted the new Grand Lodge saying "in the name of the Grand Lodges of England, Ireland and Scotland and by the command of their Grand Master, I constitute and form you, my good Brethren into the Sovereign Grand Lodge of India, you are empowered henceforth to exercise all the rights and privileges of a Grand Lodge according to the ancient usage's and landmarks of the Craft. May the Grand Architect of the Universe prosper, direct and counsel you in all your proceedings." After the Consecration and Constitution, the Deputy Grand Master of England assumed the Throne and installed Major General Dr. Sir Syed Raza Ali Khan, G.C.I.E.,D.Litt., LL.D., His Highness The Nawab of Rampur, as the first Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of India. The Aprons, Collars, Gauntlets etc. for the new Lodge were provided jointly by the three parent Grand Lodges. In addition to the three parent Grand Lodges, the M.W. Grand Master of the Grand Lodges of the State of Israel, the M.W. Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Alberta (Canada) and about 1,491 Brethren from all over India were present at this historic event. Contact Us R.W.Bro.B.Kamakoti, P.Dy.G.M.

    Formation With a population of nearly one billion and with about 270 years of Masonic history, India has just near about 22,000 freemasons belonging to various constitutions functioning in India. With a view to spread freemasonry in India at a faster speed, and to restore harmonious Freemasonry in the sub-continent, many senior brethren of Grand Lodge of India, held in high esteem by its members, decided to form new Grand Lodges that would work with each other in peace, harmony and propagate universal brotherhood. Hence was consecrated and constituted in 1995, the Grand Lodge of Upper India, at Chandigarh according to the procedure as specified by the United Grand Lodge of England in its Book of Constitutions.

  • Grand Lodge of Ireland

    Grand Lodge of Ireland

    Grand Lodge of Ireland. Freemasonry is kindness in the home, honesty in business, courtesy in society, earnest in work, pity and concern for the unfortunate, resistance towards evil, help for the weak, forgiveness for the penitent, love for one another and reverence and love for God. Freemasonry is many things, but above all, Freemasonry is a way of life, not "apart" from society but a "part of society". In the year 2008 we held our third "Grand Master's Festival of Charity" during which we raised £600,000 for very worthy Non-Masonic Charities. On this occasion the three charities were, The Samaritans, The Northern Ireland Children's Hospice and the Laura Lynn Children's Hospice Foundation. Membership of our Order is open to all men of integrity and goodwill, irrespective of colour or creed, on condition that they profess a belief in a Supreme Being. How they choose to worship Him is not of interest to us. There is evidence that Freemasonry existed in Ireland 500 years ago. The Grand Lodge of Ireland, our governing body, was constituted in 1725 and celebrated its 275th Anniversary in the year 2000, the last year of the 20th century. We are the second oldest Grand Lodge in the World. Freemasonry brings men of goodwill together to enjoy one another's company and to continue our traditions dating back hundreds of years. It fulfils as great a need to-day as it did then. Our Lodges are located all over the island of Ireland and in many Countries overseas. It is said that the sun never sets on Irish Freemasonry. This web-site enables our Brethren near and far to be close to us at all times. We hope that non-Masonic visitors to the web-site will find it interesting and informative. If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Grand Orient of Ireland

    Grand Orient of Ireland

    The Grand Orient of Ireland is an organization, which is motivated by two great principles: the respect for a tradition inherited from the founders of freemasonry and the fathers of the age of enlightenment and the search for progress, for light and for self-improvement. Above all, the Grand Masonic Orient of Ireland defends the principle of total freedom of conscience in matters of religion and spirituality. This implies freedom of the mind and liberation in regard to all dogmas; the right to believe or not to believe in the existence a Supreme Being or any form of deity; and autonomy of thought concerning religious, political, and economical constraints. Grand Orient Freemasonry is a fraternity that is open to all people regardless of their personal beliefs. and is not limited by gender, race, disability, system of belief or non-belief.

    Grand Lodge of Iceland

    Grand Lodge of Iceland

    The Icelandic Order of Freemasons - Grand Lodge of Iceland Freemasonry in Iceland began in 1913 when a "society of brothers", Edda, was established, in Reykjavik. Then, in 1918 Edda became a lodge of instruction. A year later, on the 6th of January 1919, it became a fully warranted lodge. Since then, a total of twelve warranted lodges and six lodges of instruction have been established. Icelandic Freemasonry was under the jurisdiction of the The National Grand Lodge of Denmark (Den Danske Frimurerorden) until 1951 when the Danish Grand Master constituted the Grand Lodge of Iceland as a sovereign Order which has a total membership of 3379 as of the 15th of Mars, 2011. Icelandic Freemasonry operates according to the Swedish Rite which is the dominant system in four of the Nordic countries and to some extent in Finland and Germany. It consists of eleven degrees, all of which are considered a part of Freemasonry. This system differs considerably from those used in English-speaking countries. However, there are common characteristics which make a visit to an Icelandic lodge meeting interesting and most worthwhile.

    Gran Loggia d'Italia

    La Massoneria, vi si legge, “è una libera associazione di uomini indipendenti, i quali non sono soggetti che alla propria coscienza, e s’impegnano a praticare un ideale di pace, d’Amore, di Fratellanza”. In virtù di ciò la Gran Loggia d’Italia è riuscita a discriminare fra portato tradizionale e tradizionalismo, risultando aperta ai mutamenti dei tempi e alle acquisizioni dell’uomo. Per questo, fin dal lontano 1956, ha accolto fra le sue Colonne le donne, riconoscendo loro un’assoluta parità iniziatica. Eredi di tale passato dobbiamo approfittare del presente anniversario non solo per ricordare ma soprattutto per progettare il futuro, per immaginare, costruire, sognare gli anni che verranno. E’ questo lo spirito con cui intendiamo celebrare i primi 100 anni della Gran Loggia d’Italia ed è in questo spirito che mi rivolgo a tutti Voi, carissimi Fratelli e dilette Sorelle affinché, grazie alla Vostra fraterna solerzia ed alla Vostra partecipazione, questo evento celebrativo entri negli annali della nostra Obbedienza.

    La Massoneria del Grande Oriente d'Italia di Palazzo Giustiniani è un Ordine iniziatico i cui membri operano per l'elevazione morale e spirituale dell'uomo e dell'umana famiglia. La natura della Massoneria e delle sue istituzioni è umanitaria, filosofica e morale. Essa lascia a ciascuno dei suoi membri la scelta e la responsabilità delle proprie opinioni religiose, ma nessuno può essere ammesso in Massoneria se prima non abbia dichiarato esplicitamente di credere nell'Essere Supremo. La Massoneria non è una religione né intende sostituirne alcuna: non pratica riti religiosi, non valuta le credenze religiose, non si occupa di nessun tema teologico, non consente ai propri membri di discutere in Loggia in materia di religione. La Massoneria lavora con propri metodi, mediante l'uso di Rituali e di simboli coi quali esprime ed interpreta i princìpi, gli ideali, le aspirazioni, le idee, i propositi della propria essenza iniziatica. Essa stimola la tolleranza, pratica la giustizia, aiuta i bisognosi, promuove l'amore per il prossimo e cerca tutto ciò che unisce fra loro gli uomini ed i popoli per meglio contribuire alla realizzazione della fratellanza universale. La Massoneria afferma l'alto valore della singola persona umana e riconosce ad ogni uomo il diritto di contribuire autonomamente alla ricerca della Verità. Essa inizia soltanto uomini di buoni costumi, senza distinzione di razza o di ceto sociale. I Lavori di Loggia sono di natura strettamente riservata, ma non segreta. Il Massone è tenuto ad osservare scrupolosamente la Carta Costituzionale dello Stato nel quale risiede o che lo ospita e le leggi che ad essa si ispirino. La Massoneria non permette ad alcuno dei suoi membri di partecipare o anche semplicemente di sostenere od incoraggiare qualsiasi azione che possa turbare la pace e l'ordine liberamente e democraticamente costituito della società. I Massoni hanno stima, rispetto e considerazione per le donne. Tuttavia, essendo la Massoneria l'erede della Tradizione Muratoria operativa, non le ammette nell'Ordine. Ogni membro, al fine di rendere sacri i propri impegni, deve aver prestato Solenne Promessa sul Libro della Legge da esso ritenuta Sacra.

Elle a été créée sous les auspices du Droit Humain International en 2008, dans l'esprit de la Franc-maçonnerie française. Ce projet, fidèle à l'esprit des fondateurs de la Franc-maçonnerie et à la Tradition qui nous a été transmise, repose sur les principes suivants : - la plus grande ouverture possible : nous accueillons tous les hommes et femmes de bonne volonté, sans distinction de race, de nationalité, de profession ou de croyance ; - le travail : c'est par le travail que s'accomplit le perfectionnement de l'individu et de la société. En loge, ce travail prend la forme d'exposés personnels. Chacun, par ailleurs, entame une réflexion sur le travail qu'il peut accomplir sur lui-même, dans la perspective du "Connais-toi toi-même" cher à Socrate ; - la discussion : les travaux présentés sont discutés par l'ensemble des membres de la loge, suivant une méthode constructive fondée sur la tolérance et le respect de toutes les opinions raisonnées. Liberté, égalité et fraternité sont les mots d'ordre de la maçonnerie française. Le Franc-maçon n'admet aucune entrave dans la poursuite de son objectif de perfectionnement spirituel, moral et matériel de l'homme et de la société. Il considère tous les hommes et les femmes comme égaux. La fraternité est au coeur de sa démarche. Tous les FF et SS qui souhaitent nous visiter ou nous rejoindre sont les bienvenus.

    GRAND LODGE OF JAPAN On January 16, 1957, Moriahyama Lodge No. 134 passed a resolution calling for a convention to consider the formation of a Grand Lodge of Japan. A meeting of the District Grand Lodge was held on January 26, 1957. Because of the resolution passed by Moriahyama Lodge, and the convention call issued by the Master of that Lodge, this was the principal subject of discussion. The convention was called for February 16, 1957, to be held at the Tokyo Masonic Building. Each Lodge was asked to send four delegates, with authority to act for their Lodges. Further, each Lodge was to discuss the resolution at its next Stated Meeting and act favorably or unfavorably as the case may be. The Grand Lodge of the Philippines was notified immediately on each event as it look place and was informed that a convention was to be held February 16, 1957 in Tokyo. At the Convention sixteen lodges were represented of which eleven lodges reported that their lodges had unanimously endorsed the resolution. At the convention held on March 16th four additional lodges unanimously endorsed the resolution, thus fifteen lodges out of sixteen were in favor of the formation of the Grand Lodge of Japan immediately. The Grand Lodge of the Philippines was currently informed on all transactions in writing, to preclude their receiving any inaccurate data thru unofficial channels.

    Grande Loge Bet-El

    Historique En Octobre 1986, une quinzaine de frères se rassemblèrent pour créer une loge symbolique juste et parfaite qui a prit le nom «Héliopolis No 22». En 1987, le Collège des officiers de la Respectable Loge Héliopolis No 22 a annoncé la création de la Respectable Loge Meleager. Cette loge avait vingt-trois frères inscrits dans ses registres. Les Respectables Loges Héliopolis No 22 et Meleager ont travaillé forts pour créer une Grande Obédience dans le but de rassembler ce qui est épart, car pendant la longue guerre difficile qui a frappé le Liban, plusieurs frères ont fait face à des actes anti-maçonniques. En Juin 1988, neuf membres de la Respectable Loge Héliopolis No 22 et treize membres de la Respectable Loge Meleager décidèrent d’annoncer la création de la Respectable Loge Akhenaton. Les vingt-deux frères de cette Respectable Loge vivaient l’harmonie qui régnait parmi les membres des Loges Héliopolis No 22 et Meleager. En novembre 1988, la Loge symbolique Héliopolis No 22 changea son nom pour celui de «Haramoun». Le 3 Décembre 1988, les trois Loges symboliques soient les loges Haramoun, Meleager et Akhenaton s’unirent et formèrent la Grande Loge Héliopolis. Le Frère Edward Ghattas fût élu sur la tête de la pyramide comme Grand Maître. Dus aux évènements politiques au Liban, les réunions de la Grande Loge Héliopolis furent arrêtées pour une période de deux ans. Les activités de cette Loge recommencèrent en 1992 et le Grand Maître, le Respectable Frère Yeprem Kakossian qui fût élu pour un mandat de trois ans, a annoncé la décision du Conseil Fédéral de la Grande Loge Héliopolis d’agrandir la Chaîne d’Union Universelle. Pendant cinq ans, la Grande Loge Héliopolis a participé, à plusieurs reprises, à la construction de l’être humain en apportant de l’aide morale et physique aux personnes handicapées et aux enfants orphelins, fils de la guerre. Au début du mois d’avril 1998, des élections régulières eurent lieu et le Frère Jamil Najjar fût nommé Grand Maître. Pour mieux refléter la culture cananéenne, l’Assemblée Générale de la Grande Loge Héliopolis, qui était membre de la Fédération des Obédiences formant l’Orient de Canaan, s’est réunie pour une tenue d’obligation. Lors de cette réunion, il fût décidé, à l’unanimité, que de la Grande Loge Héliopolis devienne une Puissance Maçonnique Souveraine et Indépendante pratiquant le Rite Écossais Ancien et Accepté et de prendre dorénavant pour nom : «La Grande Loge Bet-El ». En 2005, l’Assemblée Générale du Clipsas a accepté la candidature de la Grande Loge Bet-El comme membre active portant en toute fierté l’étendard de la Liberté absolue de Conscience. En 2006 apres la fin du mandat du G:.M:. F:. Jamil Najjar et d'apres la Constitution et les Reglements generaux de la Grande Loge Bet-El , des elections regulieres eurent lieu et le F:. Edmond F. Chalhoub fut nomme Grand Maitre de la Grande Loge Bet-El et le Frere Jamil Najjar a ete elu a l'unanimite President du Conseil Federal de la Grande Loge Bet-El. E-mail: Addresse B .

    Les règles de la Franc-maçonnerie sont édifiés sur LA LIBERTE, L'EGALITE ET LA FRATERNITE et n’imposent aucune limite dans la recherche de la vérité. Elles sont présentes afin que la tolérance, l’harmonie et l’amour soient maîtres de l’homme qui cherche à mieux gérer son existence. Une Maçonnerie saine au sens où je l’entends est une Maçonnerie qui se base sur la symbolique et sur notre histoire et qui continue d’être créative et critique à toutes les tendances aux couleurs dogmatiques et absolutistes. C’est une Maçonnerie et des Maçons qui travaillent à leur personnalité, et sur la base des idéaux maçonniques, aujourd’hui et qui sont orientés vers l’avenir. C’est une Maçonnerie transparente et ouverte qui communique ses idéaux par les actions, les engagements et la tenue exemplaire de ces adeptes dans la société. C’est une Maçonnerie et des Maçons qui travaillent à l'amélioration constante de la condition humaine. Car si chacun de nous s’active à faire preuve, là où il habite et là où il travaille, d’un peu plus d’humanisme, d’amour, de tolérance et de sincérité, ainsi que d’équité et d’absence de préjugés, nous serons en mesure de montrer l’efficacité de l’Ordre que nous représentons. La maçonnerie, dans sa forme actuelle, est une institution qui remonte au début du 18e siècle. Son objectif consiste avant tout dans le perfectionnement individuel de l'homme et, à travers lui, de la société dans laquelle il vit. Par perfectionnement, on entend une élévation et un développement moral et idéal, mais aussi humaniste, que l'on peut atteindre par un travail constant de recherche sur soi-même. A cette fin on se sert de symboles transmis par les corporations de bâtisseurs qui remontent au Moyen-Âge. Munis de ces moyens, les francs-maçons tentent de trouver un sens au parcours de l'homme sur la terre. C'est ce qu'ils appellent la recherche de la vérité. Il ne s'agit pas d'un effort purement spéculatif, mais d'actions tendant à affiner son propre "moi" dans l'immanent, ce qui équivaut à s'élever dans le transcendant. Un des principaux critères dans ce contexte d’affinement consiste à identifier dans la vie de l'homme les valeurs qui lui permettront de se perfectionner. Il s'agit de se comporter en conformité avec sa propre éthique. Chaque franc-maçon est libre de pratiquer ou non une religion ou d'opter pour un credo qui lui est propre. Le franc-maçon médite et agit individuellement et avec ses frères (les autres francs-maçons) en essayant d'irradier le Bien: la tolérance, la justice, l'égalité, la solidarité, l'humanisme, le juste progrès et l'éducation... Les francs-maçons peuvent être de n'importe quel peuple, culture, credo ou origine, d'où l'attribut d'universalité de la maçonnerie. La liberté, qui, d'une façon manifeste ou sournoise, a été souvent ravie à l'homme tout au long de son histoire, a une place d'honneur, sans aucune ambiguïté, en maçonnerie; en fait, la pensée maçonnique s'oppose catégoriquement et méthodiquement a tout dogmatisme, qu'il soit politique, religieux ou de toute autre forme. Pour s’approcher de la franc-maçonnerie, il suffit d'envoyer une simple demande à une Loge; celle-ci évalue la candidature avant une éventuelle admission et se réserve le droit de l'accepter ou non, comme cela se pratique couramment dans n'importe quelle autre association.

    Welcome to the Sovereign Grand Lodge of Malta On behalf of our fraternity and as the first Grand Master of this recently constituted Link in the universal Chain of Regular Grand Lodges, I am honoured and privileged to bid you welcome to our website, and to Malta. The tradition of Maltese hospitality is world-renowned and we have a warm embrace for those of our Brotherhood who might wish to visit our Islands and meet us. To those who only know of Freemasonry through portrayals as a secret, self-serving, or sinister society, I must say I wish you could be persuaded otherwise. If you are a stranger enquiring of our organisation, of our purpose, or of our beliefs may I say at the outset that we are not a religious order but do believe in a universal all-seeing God; and through its precepts Freemasonry encourages members to follow that religion to which they belong. Worldwide Masonic membership includes men of all races, nationality, colour, and creed. As to Political persuasion we are strictly apolitical and positively forbid political debate when we gather together. We claim no special place in society, and in applying strict disciplines upon ourselves we remain cognisant of weakness in our brethren and others in distress, and are moved to assist those in difficulty to the utmost of our ability. Our motivation is manifold and centres on developing inborn traits of humility, tolerance, and charity, which we seek to hone to individual and to universal advantage; but, as with all mortals, sadly we often fall short of fully achieving our objectives and ambitions. We mutually congregate in discreet and orderly fashion respecting traditions inherited over centuries past. Self-control and respect for authority are as cement to the cornerstones of our beliefs and our behaviour. We form ourselves in groups we call Lodges; each functioning individually with its team of officers headed by an elected Master; each operating through our Constitution, i.e. our internal rules and procedures; and all responding to the authority of our Grand Lodge. We abide by the laws of the State and are critical of those in violation, and expect similar from those around us. We recognise there are some who regard our titling of officers, our terminology, our formal dress codes, and our conduct, as rather quaint in a modern society: but we are unapologetic in adhering to our traditions. In conclusion may I commend for your reading the Historical Review that follows and whatever your motivation in contacting us I thank you for your interest and for this opportunity to tell you a little about ourselves. With our best wishes for every success in your ongoing honest endeavours, The Grand Master The Sovereign Grand Lodge of Malta.

    Principii generale ale masoneriei Francmasoneria este un ordin iniţiatic tradiţional şi universal fondat pe Fraternitate. Ea constituie o alianţă de oameni liberi şi de bune moravuri, de toate rasele, de toate naţionalităţile şi aparţinând tuturor religiilor. Francmasoneria are drept scop perfecţionarea Umanităţii. În acest sens, francmasonii se recunosc Fraţi şi îşi datorează ajutor şi asistenţă, chiar în situaţiile de pericol din viaţă. Ei trebuie să acorde ajutor oricărei persoane aflate în pericol. În căutarea constantă a adevărului şi a justiţiei, Francmasonii nu acceptă nici un obstacol şi nu îşi stabilesc nicio limită. Ei respectă gândirea celuilalt şi libera lui exprimare, caută concilierea contradicţiilor şi vor să unească oamenii prin intermediul unei etici universale şi prin respectarea personalităţii fiecăruia. Francmasonii consideră munca drept o datorie şi un drept. Ei trebuie să respecte legile şi autoritatea legitimă a ţării în care trăiesc şi unde se reunesc liber. Sunt cetăţeni educaţi şi disciplinaţi şi se conformează imperativelor conştiinţei lor. În practicarea Artei, francmasonii urmăresc respectarea regulilor tradiţionale şi a cutumelor Ordinului. Francmasonii, în căutarea comună al aceluiaşi ideal se recunosc între ei prin cuvinte, semne şi atingeri pe care şi le comunică în mod tradiţional în Lojă, în cadrul ceremoniilor iniţiatice. Aceste cuvinte, semne şi atingeri, la fel ca şi riturile şi simblourile, fac obiectul unui secret inviolabil şi nu pot fi comunicate niciunei persoane care nu are calitatea de a le cunoaşte. Fiecare francmason este liber să-şi declare sau să nu apartenenţa sa la ordinul masonic, dar nu o poate dezvălui pe cea a unui Frate.

    Det Internationale Fælles-Frimureri "Le Droit Humain" HISTORIE Det Internasjonale Fellesfrimureriet har sin opprinnelse i Frankrike fra slutten av forrige århundre. På den tiden var det dannet en rekke losjer i Frankrike som hadde et svært selvstendig forhold til storlosjen. I en av disse gikk man i 1882 til det skritt å oppta en kvinne, Maria Deraismes, til frimurer – mest for å hedre henne for en stor og betydningsfull humanitær innsats. Konsekvensene av dette ble at denne losjen ble ekskludert fra moderordenen. Etter noen år besluttet så denne losjen seg for å fortsette å ta opp kvinner fordi de mente at det ble begått en urett mot kvinner ved å nekte dem adgang til frimureriet. I 1893 ble losjen ”Le Droit Humain” (menneskerettighetene) stiftet, med det mål for øye å oppta både kvinner og menn på like vilkår. Seks år senere ble det dannet et ”høyeste råd”, og nye losjer oppsto snart over hele Frankrike. Organisasjonen har nå fått en betydelig utbredelse og er etablert i over 60 land i samtlige verdensdeler. Til norden kom organisasjonen i 1912 da losje Yggdrasil ble dannet i Oslo, daværende Kristiania, men denne ble nedlagt under siste verdenskrig og har aldri kommet seg på fote igjen. I 1917 ble det dannet en losje i Danmark og i 1918 i Sverige. Island og Finland fulgte rett etter og har i dag de største medlemstallene i Norden. I Norge ble losje Bifrost stiftet i Trondheim i 1923 men denne losjen er for tiden ikke aktiv. I 1979 ble en frimurergruppe dannet i Stavanger og 3 medlemmer ble opptatt. Medlemstallet økte til 7 i 1981 og losje Isis ble da formelt stiftet og fikk sitt losjebrev fra ordenens Høyeste Råd i Paris. Losje Isis har pr. september 2007 40 betalende medlemmer og vokser fortsatt. Losje Isis kan kontaktes på følgende e-mail adresse;

    De meeste mensen weten weinig over de Vrijmetselarij in het algemeen en nog minder over het bestaan van een Vrijmetselaarsgroepering waar zowel mannen als vrouwen worden toegelaten. In de Internationale Orde der Gemengde Vrijmetselarij "Le Droit Humain" (I.O.G.V.M. "Le Droit Humain") beoefenen mannen en vrouwen gezamenlijk, op voet van gelijkheid, wederzijds respect en waardering voor elkaar, de Vrijmetselarij. De leden van de I.O.G.V.M. "Le Droit Humain" behoren, ondanks dat zij het gevoel hebben lid te zijn van een oud en eerbiedwaardig genootschap dat door de eeuwen heen nobele tradities en hoge aspiraties heeft bewaard, tot een betrekkelijk jonge organisatie. Onze organisatie is in 1893 in Parijs opgericht met als bijzonder doel, het toelaten van de vrouw tot de Vrijmetselarij. Op de voorgevel van het hoofdgebouw van de I.O.G.V.M. "Le Droit Humain" in Parijs staat: "De vrouw heeft in de mensheid dezelfde plichten als de man; zij behoort dezelfde rechten in het gezin en in de maatschappij te hebben" I.O.G.V.M.

    Vrijmetselarij in het kort De vrijmetselarij biedt mannen van deze tijd een methode om te komen tot persoonlijke zingeving en ethische plaatsbepaling. Door het gebruik van symbolen en het ondergaan en het gezamenlijk beleven van rituelen, tekent zich voor de bewust levende man een weg van persoonlijke groei en ontwikkeling af. Deze weg helpt hem zich te plaatsen ten opzichte van zichzelf, de medemens en datgene wat hij als leidinggevende kracht in zijn leven aanvaardt. De vrijmetselaar ziet zichzelf symbolisch als ruwe steen, een steen die bewerkt moet worden om een plek – zijn plek – in de samenleving in te nemen. Een samenleving die hij ziet als een te voltooien bouwwerk.

Nazwa ta głosi absolutną równość każdego człowieka wobec prawa. Oto kilka słów naszej Konstytucji. „Międzynarodowy Mieszany Zakon Wolnomularski „LE DROIT HUMAIN” afirmuje równość kobiet i mężczyzn. W swej nazwie: „LE DROIT HUMAIN” Zakon proklamuje pragnienie aby kobiety i mężczyźni na całym świecie osiągnęli równość wobec sprawiedliwości społecznej w ramach ludzkości zorganizowanej w wolnych i braterskich społeczeństwach.” Dalej czytamy: „Zakon składa się z Wolnomularzy obydwu płci połączonych więzami braterskimi z pominięciem podziałów rasowych, etnicznych, filozoficznych czy religijnych...” Nazwę tę nadali założyciele pierwszej na świecie obediencji wolnomularstwa mieszanego, wytyczając nią w pewnym sensie kierunek dążenia jej przyszłych pokoleń.

    ORDEM MAÇÓNICA MISTA INTERNACIONAL “LE DROIT HUMAIN” “O DIREITO HUMANO” DECLARAÇÃO DE PRINCÍPIOS DEFINIÇÃO DA ORDEM ARTIGO PRIMEIRO Ordem Maçónica Mista Internacional “Le Droit Humain” afirma a igualdade do Homem e da Mulher. Ao proclamar “O Direito Humano”, a Ordem pretende que eles venham a beneficiar em toda a terra, de forma igual, da justiça social numa humanidade organizada em sociedades livres e fraternas. Art. 2º Composta de Franco-Maçons, homens e mulheres fraternalmente unidos, sem distinção de ordem racial, étnica, filosófica ou religiosa, a Ordem impõe a si própria, para alcançar este objectivo, um método ritual e simbólico, graças ao qual os seus membros edificam o seu Templo à perfeição e à glória da Humanidade. Art. 3º Respeitando a laicidade, todas as crenças referentes à eternidade ou à não eternidade da vida espiritual, os seus membros procuram, antes de mais, realizar na terra, e para todos os seres humanos, o máximo de desenvolvimento moral, intelectual e espiritual, condição primeira da felicidade que é possível cada indivíduo alcançar numa Humanidade organizada fraternalmente. Art. 4º A Ordem é constituída por Maçons de ambos os sexos que juraram obediência à Constituição Internacional de O Direito Humano e se reúnem em Lojas de qualquer grau, tendo recebido a sua Carta do Supremo Conselho Universal Misto. O poder legislativo é detido pela Convenção Internacional, órgão soberano da Ordem. O poder de execução das decisões da Convenção Internacional, a salvaguarda da Constituição Internacional, a manutenção da regularidade e da unidade maçónica no seio da Ordem, estão confiados ao Supremo Conselho. A gestão do Supremo Conselho é submetida à ratificação da Convenção Internacional. O poder judiciário é exercido no seio das Federações e Jurisdições segundo as disposições dos seus regulamentos gerais, com excepção do direito de última instância (ou arbitragem) e de cassação ao nível internacional, por meio de recurso ao Supremo Conselho. Art. 5º A Ordem Maçónica Mista Internacional “Le Droit Humain” “O Direito Humano” não professa nenhum dogma. Trabalha na procura da Verdade. Esta a razão por que nos Ateliers as discussões ou debates relativos a questões sociais ou religiosas não poderão, em caso algum, ter outra finalidade que não a de esclarecer os membros e permitir-lhes cumprir os seus deveres de Franco-Maçons com melhor conhecimento de causa. Art. 6º Os princípios e o método de trabalho adoptados pela Ordem Maçónica Mista Internacional “Le Droit Humain” “O Direito Humano” são os das Grandes Constituições Escocesas de 1786 Era Vulgar revistas pela Convenção dos nove Supremos Conselhos Escoceses de vários países do Globo que estiveram presentes no Zénite de Lausana, na Suíça, em 22 de Setembro de 1875 Era Vulgar. Constituições, rituais, Trolhador Geral, regulamentos gerais do 1º ao 33º grau inclusive, adoptados pela Convenção Internacional de 9,10,11,12,13,14 e 15 de Agosto de 1920 Era Vulgar, foram adoptados ao trabalho dos Ateliers mistos de todos os graus simbólicos e administrativos da Ordem. Art. 7º Podem ser autorizados pelo Supremo Conselho Ateliers dos diversos graus praticados pelas Maçonarias nacionais cujos rituais deverão ser adaptados ao trabalho dos Ateliers mistos. Art. 8º As Lojas da Ordem Maçónica Mista Internacional “Le Droit Humain” “O Direito Humano” trabalham “À Glória do Grande Arquitecto do Universo” ou/e “Ao Progresso da Humanidade”. Email-

    Grand Orient de Roumanie

    Marele Orient al României – M.O.A.R. – este o federație mixtă de loji care se definește ca putere simbolică suverană, adogmatica si liberală, continuatoare a tradiției începute încă de la 1879 de iluștrii săi înaintași. M.O.A.R. este suveran prin prisma faptului că nu este interesat de recunoașterea obediențelor dogmatice și conservatoare. M.O.A.R. întreține relații de prietenie atât cu obediențele care fac parte din rețeaua francmasoneriei adogmatice și liberale, cât și cu obediențele care respectă existenta sa. M.O.A.R. este o putere simbolică prin faptul că păstrează ritualul tradiției inițiatice. M.O.A.R. este adogmatic prin faptul că este de părere că opțiunea religiei și a credinței ori a non credinței aparține individului și nu este un criteriu de selecție pentru inițiere. Altfel spus, M.O.A.R. nu face discriminare în funcție de credință și de religie în momentul considerării unei candidaturi. M.O.A.R. apără principiul republican al laicității, adică respectul libertății individuale, de conștiință și de religie. M.O.A.R. este liberal prin prisma faptului că recunoaște în egală măsură statutul de inițiat femeilor și al bărbaților și lasă la latitudinea lojilor decizia de a se constitui în lojă masculină, feminină ori mixtă. Marele Orient al României este administrat pe principiul repartiției puterii de decizie în mod democratic. El se susține pe principiul tripartiției puterilor executive, de justiție și legislative. Executivul este reprezentat de Consiliul de Ordin care administrează chestiunile curente ale obedienței și veghează asupra respectului ritualului, constituției și regulamentului general. Justiția este reprezentată de Comisia de Justiție; instanța de mediere fraternă și reglare a interpretării constituționale. Legislativul este reprezentat de reuniunea în Convent a delegațiilor aleși în lojile federației.

    Francmasoneria este un Ordin iniţiatic străvechi şi respectat în întreaga lume, cu un caracter tradiţional şi simbolic. Ea este o frăție a oamenilor liberi, indiferent de religie sau de clasa socială. Întemeiată pe principiul toleranţei, Francmasoneria se dezvoltă prin diversitatea sa confesională şi socială, spre atingerea unui ţel comun: urmarea propriului drum al fiecăruia dintre noi către perfecţionarea de sine. De aceea, Francmasoneria oferă unelte simbolice şi tradiţionale oricui doreşte să se perfecţioneze. Oricine se poate autoperfecţiona prin experienţa vieţii şi o bună înţelegere a eticii. Masoneria este o frăţie care permite fiecăruia să se îmbogăţească din experienţa celorlalţi, devenind astfel capabil să răspundă în mod practic la multitudinea de probleme pe care le implică societatea contemporană. "Modernitatea" încetează să mai fie asociată unei idei monolitice, presupunând complexitatea şi varietatea tuturor interacţiunilor noastre. Masoneria este un pas spiritual, structurat asemeni unei organizări a vieţii umane şi a unei modalităţi de existenţă. Organizaţia Masonică există pentru a garanta libertatea şi independenţa creaţiei şi muncii fiecăruia, cât şi pentru a asigura un sprijin colectiv. Drumul este alcătuit din mai multe etape, care permit un progres continuu. Datorită acestui amestec dintre libertatea individuală şi tradiţie, Francmasoneria a putut să aibă o continuitate inalterabilă din secolul al XVIII-lea până în prezent, rămânând în acelaşi timp neschimbată şi totuşi contemporană. Masoneria luptă pentru respectarea drepturilor omului, pentru respectarea legilor şi tradiţiilor patriei. Ea face front împotriva ignoranţei, violenţei, corupţiei şi necinstei între oameni şi popoare, împotriva ateismului. Masoneria propune dialogul şi toleranţa, construieşte punţi care apropie, atenuând ceea ce ne separă. I.·.G.·.M.·.A.·.A.·.U.·.

    Purpose & Meaning What Is Masonry? What is modern Freemasonry? Masonry, as mentioned before, is many things to many people. Many years ago in England it was defined as a system of morality, veiled in allegory, and illustrated by symbols. It is a course of moral instruction using both allegories and symbols to teach its lessons. The legends and myths of the old stone cutters and masons, many of them involved in building the great cathedrals of Europe, have been woven into an interesting and effective way to portray moral truths. In Masonry, the old tools and ways of the craftsmen are used to help dramatically portray those moral truths. For example, the 24 inch gauge and the common gavel. Just as the ruler is used to measure distance, the modern Mason uses it as a reminder to manage one of his most precious resources: time. And, as the gavel is used to shape stones, so it is also the symbol for the necessity of all of us to work to perfect ourselves. One modern definition is: Freemasonry is an organized society of men, symbolically applying the principle of Operative Masonry and architecture to the science and art of character building. In other words, Masonry uses ageless methods and lessons to make each of us a better person. Thus, Masonry: has a basic philosophy of life that places the individual worth of each man high on its pedestal, and incorporates the great teachings of many ages to provide a way for individual study and thought. has great respect for religion and promotes toleration and equal esteem for the religious opinions and beliefs of others. provides a real working plan for making good men even better. is a social organization. has many important charitable projects. has a rich worldwide history. is a proven way to develop both public speaking and dramatic abilities. and provides an effective avenue for developing leadership.

    Grand Lodge of Colorado

    Grand Lodge of Colorado

    Masonry is the world's oldest and largest fraternity for men. Although the details of Masonry's beginnings are lost, it is certain that in 1717 four lodges met in a London coffeehouse and formed the first Grand Lodge or association of lodges. Masonry entered this country early in our history. Benjamin Franklin, an active Mason, printed the first Masonic book published in the United States. George Washington and other American leaders were active Masons. As Masons moved across the continent, they brought Masonry with them. The first recorded Masonic meeting in Colorado was held in the middle of the nineteenth century; the first Rocky Mountain News contained a notice of a Masonic meeting. The Colorado Grand Lodge was formed in 1861. Freemasons have been supporting families and family values since our inception. We have organizations open only to men, only to women, for couples, for boys and for girls. For further information on some of our various organizations. The Masonic family.

    Grand Lodge of Connecticut

    History of the Grand Lodge of Connecticut The Lodges which formed the first Masonic Convention in Connecticut, whose delegates took the first preliminary step towards establishing the Grand Lodge, were the following, viz:— Hiram, at New Haven; St. John's, Middletown; St. John's, Fairfield; St. John's, Hartford; St. John's, Norwalk; King Solomon's, Woodbury; St. John's, Stratford; Compass, Wallingford; Union, Danbury; Wooster, Colchester; St. Paul's, Litchfield; and King Hiram, Derby. Some of these Lodges have kept their records in a good state of preservation, from their first organization, which enables us to give the following brief sketch of their early history. From others we have found no records earlier than the formation of the Grand Lodge, and all the knowledge we have of their previous existence is derived from the fact that they were represented in the Convention of Delegates at the time the Constitution was adopted. -taken from "The Records of Freemasonry in the State of Connecticut with a brief Account of its Origin in New England, and the Entire Proceedings of the Grand Lodge, from its First Organization, A.L. 5789" compiled from authentic sources by E.

The Grand Orient is a secular organization like the Rotary and Lions clubs, whereas the Grand Lodges are religious-like organizations. There are several distinguishing characteristics that differentiate them. Grand Orient Freemasonry is: * A secular civic organization * Open to both men and women of all races who are of high moral character * Dedicated to building strength of charcter and moral integrity in its members * Actively promoting liberty, equality and individual rights in America and around the globe Enlightenment Based Philosophy We are a continuation of the cosmopolitan Enlightenment ideals of Freemasons such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and the Marquis de Lafayette. Our Masonic lineage can be traced back through the Grand Orient of France to the Grand Lodge of England that was first established in 1717. Fraternity The fraternal aspects of Freemasonry are to be found in its ancient rituals and festivities. The rituals are a way to connect the past with the present and future. Since 1717 every Mason has been initiated into the fraternity in the same way. For some it is a rite of passage, while for others it’s a connection to the roots of the United States and its founding fathers. Education and Civic Virtue The Grand Orient of the United States promotes continuing education in civic virtue, science, natural philosophy, ethics, humanism, the environment, critical thinking, mathematics, business and other related subjects. Many lodge meetings are specifically dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge. We hope that you enjoy your visit to our web site and come away with a better understanding of Grand Orient Freemasonry.

    Honorable Order of American Co-Masonry

    Honorable Order of American Co-Masonry

    Declaration of Principles Freemasonry is a fraternity including men and women of every race, nationality and religion. Wishing to do away with all cause for division and strife, it continually seeks the means which to help all human beings to unite and work together for the perfection of Humanity. American Co-Masonry, a Masonic Obedience independent of all others, has not created a new Rite. What distinguishes it from other existing Obediences is that, instead of admitting men only to its ranks, it admits women on an equal footing. It proclaims equal rights for both sexes and absolute liberty of conscience. In order to secure to everyone unlimited freedom in the search for truth,it demands the utmost tolerance from all its members. It avoids political and religious discussions wherever these cannot be carried on with requisite tolerance and moderation; it welcomes everyone who is upright, free, of mature age, sound judgement and strict morals, whatever may be his or her convictions in matters of religion, philosophy or politics. American Co-Masonry seeks to destroy ignorance under whatever form, and its program may be explained as follows: * Each Mason owes obedience to the Order and to the laws of his or her country; he must live honorably, practice justice, love his neighbor, work unceasingly for the true happiness of humanity and help human beings to emancipate themselves from the thralldom of passion and ignorance. * From the first to the last, to whatever degree the aspirant may desire to be admitted, the first condition to be fulfilled is to have a reputation of unsullied honor and probity. * Members of the Order owe to each other help and support in all circumstances and conditions of life. * To think high, to speak truth, to do well, to be tolerant to others, to search after truth, to practice liberty under law, fraternal equality, justice and solidarity, are the duties which the Supreme Council of American Co-Masonry, prescribes for its members seeking to build to the Glory of the Great Architect of the Universe, to the perfection of Humanity, and to the service of the Head of All True Freemasons, the true Masonic Temple open to both men and women.

    Prince Hall | Grand Lodge of Connecticut

    Prince Hall | Grand Lodge of Connecticut

    Most Worshipful Prince Hall | Grand Lodge of Connecticut | Free & Accepted Masons, Inc. 66 Montville Street | Hartford, Ct. 06120 | 860.727.8108 phone & fax Africans and other world travelers during the 17th and 18th centuries brought with them or were introduced to Freemasonry within the Western Hemisphere (North and South America) and came to share these secrets and symbols with inhabitants of the Caribbean and adjacent areas. There is general agreement that Freemasonry already was well established as the British and Spanish explorers invaded these communities during the mid-1600’s. It is very likely that much in advance of ‘slavery’ in the Americas, men of color (although often at great risk) were at work as craftsmen, laboring in and enjoying the fruits of the vineyards of Freemasonry. The History of Freemasonry by Robert Gould, among others, reveals that Freemasonry had been introduced among the islands of the West Indies during the 18th century not long after the establishment of the historic Grand Lodge in 1717. However, this so-called Union of the Moderns and Ancients promoted the fraternity, at this time, as a powerful, predominantly white, upper-middle class organization. Fifteen ‘free black men’: Prince Hall (Cyrus Johnson, Bueston Slinger, Prince Rees, John Canton, Peter Freeman, Benjamin Tiler, Duff Ruform, Thomas Santerson, Prince Rayden, Cato Speain, Boston Smith, Peter Best, Forten Howard and Richard Titley) were initiated into Lodge #441, attached to the 38th Regiment of Foot, British Army garrisoned the Castle William Island, Boston Harbor on March 6, 1775 (History of African Lodge #459 – MW Prince Hall Grand Lodge Massachusetts) with authority (1776) ‘to meet as African Lodge #1, to go in procession on St. John’s Day, and as a Lodge to bury their dead; but they could not confer degrees nor perform any other Masonic ‘work’’. For eight years these Brethren, together with others who had received their degrees elsewhere, (thirty-three Masons by 1779) assembled and enjoyed their limited privileges as Masons. Prince Hall petitioned (March 2, 1784) the Grand Lodge of England for a warrant or charter. The Warrant to African Lodge #459 of Boston was granted on September 29, 1784 (delivered in Boston April 29, 1787) and was officially organized on May 6, 1787, and became the ‘Mother Lodge’ of Prince Hall Freemasonry. The African Grand Lodge was organized in 1808 in New York City at the meeting of African Lodge #459 of Boston, African Lodge #459 of Philadelphia and Hiram Lodge #3 of Providence, Rhode Island, and later its name was changed to PRINCE HALL GRAND LODGE. Four Masonic Grand Bodies trace their origin directly to the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Massachusetts: number two, Pennsylvania in 1815; number three, New York in 1845; number eleven, Rhode Island in 1858; and number twenty-eight, Georgia in 1870 (Harry A. Williamson, ‘A Chronological History of Prince Hall Masonry of Prince Hall Masonry’ The New York Age, 1934). Connecticut (1873) was one of four Grand Masonic Bodies set up by New York. The 1875 Proceedings of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge F&AM of Connecticut, reveal that in June 1873 the representatives or delegates of Widow’s Son Lodge (New Haven), Eureka Lodge (Norwich), and Excelsior Lodge (Hartford) gave notice to the Most Worshipful United Grand Lodge of New York, then in session with MWGM Walter H. Burr presiding in the City of New York, and under whose jurisdiction they were working, of their intention of organizing and establishing a Grand Lodge of Connecticut. The four Lodges forming the Grand Lodge were Lodges which had been duly constituted and were holding warrants at that time under The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of the State of New York. These Lodges in the New York Registry were known as Widow's Son Lodge #10 of New Haven, Connecticut, warranted in 1858; Eureka Lodge #15 of Norwich, Connecticut, warranted in 1859; Excelsior Lodge #16 of Hartford, Connecticut, warranted in 1859; and Doric Lodge #33 of Bridgeport, Connecticut, warranted in 1871. On January 7, 1874 MWGM Walter H. Burr (New York) had the honor of installing the first principal officer, Brother William H. Layne as Most Worshipful Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge F&AM, State of Connecticut. The first communication of this newly formed Grand Lodge was held at the Masonic Temple in New Haven, Connecticut on October 4, 1874.

The Temple was renovated at a cost of nearly $600,000, it was planned during the administration of Past Grand Master W.F. Lawton, Sr., and the work done during the administration of Past Grand Master, David P. Crosby. In 1997, then Most Worshipful Grand Master Warren R. Whitley initiated a program to raise money to re-do the exterior of the Temple. This program continued with Most Past Grand Master Willie H. Griffin (1999-2000), was completed under then Grand Master John Ellington, Jr. (2001-2002), at a final cost over just over $1 million. In 1998, the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge Jurisdiction of the District of Columbia under the leadership of then Most Worshipful Grand Master Warren R. Whitley (5), celebrated its Sesquicentennial (1848 –1998), one hundred and fifty years (150) of Prince Hall Masonry in the District of Columbia.

    The George Washington Union

    The George Washington Union

    Throughout the year 1976 several American and French Freemasons were meeting in New York anticipating celebrating together the 200th anniversary of American Independence Day on July 4th. The French Freemasons were members of New York’s Lodge L’Atlantide which, since 1900, had been working under a charter from the Grand Orient de France. Later that same year, on December 10, 1976 it was decided to create an American progressive Lodge in New York which could be the nucleus of a future North American body of Masonic lodges, working under the concept of absolute freedom of conscience. The newly established Lodge, under the distinctive title “George Washington No. 1,” received its Charter from the Grand Orient de France in accord with a covenant signed in August 1977 and ratified by the General Assembly of the Grand Orient de France in September, 1978. In 1979 this lodge joined the Centre de Liaison et d'Information des Puissances maçonniques Signataires de l'Appel de Strasbourg (CLIPSAS) in order to affirm a traditional, yet progressive, and liberal style of Freemasonry not only within the United States, but worldwide. By 2001 several traditional lodges had been formed in North America. It was deemed appropriate in 2002 that the Grand Orient de France officially recognize and collaborate with the George Washington Union as a separate Grand Orient operating in North America with the ability to charter lodges. In 2005 the George Washington Union signed a treaty of friendship and cooperation with the Grande Loge Féminine de France. Along with maintaining cooperative treaties with the Grand Orient de France and Grande Loge Féminine de France the George Washington Union maintains friendly relationships with some thirty Grand Lodges in twenty-two countries spread over four continents.

    The Grand Lodge of the State of New York

    The Grand Lodge of the State of New York

    The Grand Lodge of the State of New York has a long history dating back over 228 years and is the governing body of Freemasonry in the State of New York. Like many organizations Masons elect their leaders. The Grand Lodge of the State of New York is headed by the Grand Master who is aided by a team of officers both elected and appointed. The Grand Lodge of the State of New York acts as the coordinating body for many functions undertaken throughout the state. Its various committees organize blood drives, Child ID programs and charitable events around New York. A Brief History of the Grand Lodge of New York The Grand Lodge of New York was organized on December 15, 1782 under a Provincial Grand Warrant dated September 5, 1781 from the “Athol” or modern Grand Lodge of England. Our Grand Lodge declared its independence on June 6, 1787 and assumed the title “Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York.” As early as the mid 1730’s Freemasonry was present in the American colony of New York. Daniel Coxe was appointed by the Duke of Norfolk as Provincial Grand Master for the provinces of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. As no authenticated records exist of his tenure as Provincial Grand Master it seems doubtful that he exercised any authority in Masonic endeavors. The last of the Provincial Grand Masters was Sir John Johnson who assumed office in 1771. The new Grand Lodge of New York elected Reverend William Walter as the first Grand Master. He served for almost three years. In 1784 Robert R. Livingston was appointed Grand Master and was elected to the office for the next sixteen years. He presided at the swearing in ceremony of the only President of the United States to take the oath of office in New York City. The Bible (published in 1767) that was used at the swearing in ceremony of Brother George Washington as the first President of the United States, is owned by St. John’s Lodge No. 1 and is still in use today at the swearing in of the Grand Master and, by request, at the swearing in of the President of the United States. In the 228 year history of the Grand Lodge of New York there have been 100 Grand Masters. Each has contributed to the welfare of both Masons and people of the State of New York and the United States of America through their service as Governors, Senators, Representatives, Judges, Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers and everyday people through their many philanthropic endeavors. The Grand Lodge of New York is proud of its Masonic Hall, which houses our Grand Lodge offices in New York City, the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory, Acacia Village and Masonic Home in Utica; the Chancellor Robert R. Livingston Library and Museum in New York and Utica; the Masonic Youth Camp at Camp Turk in Woodgate; the DeWint House at Tappan and its many charitable activities of its annual Brotherhood Fund Drive.

    Angleterre - Grand Lodge of Freemasonry for Men and Women

    The Order was created to meet a need by senior members coming out of Co-Freemasonry, Le Droit Humain in order to provide a modern organisation for the Millennium. Please note that we have no connection with Le Droit Humain or International Co-Freemasonry as we believe that a belief in a Supreme Being is essential for Masonic work. It was seen as imperative, to maintain the ancient Landmarks and Principles of Freemasonry, alongside similar Masonic organisations (i.e. singular masculine and singular womens' Masonic Orders in England) and of paramount importance. Yet, being a new vibrant Millennium Masonic Order it offers to men and women the opportunity to work together.

    The essential qualification for admission into and continuing membership is a belief in a Supreme Being. Membership is open to men of any race or religion who can fulfil this essential qualification and who are of good repute. The Three Great Principles For many years Freemasons have followed three great principles: Brotherly Love - Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding to his fellow creatures. Relief - Freemasons are taught to practise charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole, both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals. Truth - Freemasons strive for truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives.

    Écosse - Order of the Eastern Star - Supreme Grand Chapter of Scotland (ordre paramaçonnique)

    Écosse - Order of the Eastern Star - Supreme Grand Chapter of Scotland (ordre paramaçonnique)

    First, the Order of the Eastern Star is and should always be non-denominational, and non-sectarian in both its doctrine and its beliefs. The first and only factor for those wishing to enter its realms is an unequivocal belief in the existence of a Supreme Being. Its aims and purpose is to promote the welfare and wellbeing of others, particularly those of the Widow and Orphan, and those less fortunate than ourselves. It is not, despite a popular misconception, a secret society. Its origins began in France, around the middle of the 18th century, with its rites and rituals spreading rapidly and extensively throughout the rest of Europe. When in 1850 in America a slightly altered and more acceptable ritual was adopted by the people of that country, and thereafter in time, the rest of the world. Being a charitable organization, its members past and present have given thousands upon thousands of pounds to worthwhile causes. Surely we must strive to keep our Order alive, not only for our own sake, but in order that others may benefit from our charitable purposes.

    Écosse - Royal Order of Scotland

    Écosse - Royal Order of Scotland

    The Grand Lodge of the Royal Order of Scotland is headquartered in Edinburgh, with a total of 85 Provincial Grand Lodges in several locations around Britain, and in a number of countries around the world. The order claims the King of Scots as hereditary Grand Master. The Deputy Grand Master and Governor of the order is currently Brother The Rt. Hon. The Earl of Elgin and Kincardine Andrew Douglas Bruce. In times in which there is no King of Scots, the Deputy Grand Master and Governor is the worldwide leader of the Order. The ROS Grand Lodge and the Provincial Grand Lodges confer two degrees: Heredom of Kilwinning Knight of the Rosy Cross History The order has existed since at least 1741, based on records in the archive of the Grand Lodge demonstrating activity in London, with a further charter being granted in 1750 to work the degree at The Hague. The holder of that warrant, William Mitchell, moved to Edinburgh around 1752/3, using the charter to establish a Provincial Grand Lodge there. In 1767 this body became the Grand Lodge of the Royal Order of Scotland. Activity appears to have dwindled with the Order nearing extinction in the early 1800's but a resurgence culminated in the establishment of further Provincial Grand Lodges by 1843. The traditional history, or legend, of the order dates its origination to the reign of King David I in the 12th Century in the Heredom degree, with the Rosy Cross degree originating in 1314 following the Battle of Bannockburn. Membership Qualification for membership varies but is typically by invitation, having been a Master Mason for 5 years. Other restrictions may include, but are not restricted to: Active membership of the 18th degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite and at least one other Christian Order. OR Membership of the Holy Royal Arch and at least one other Christian Order. OR In the United States membership of the Knight Templar Degree in the York Rite, or membership of the 32nd Degree in the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite.

    Irlande - Grand Lodge of Ireland

    Irlande - Grand Lodge of Ireland

    The Grand Lodge of Ireland is the second oldest in the world and the first evidence for its existence comes from the Dublin Weekly Journal of June 26th 1725. The paper describes an event which took place two days previously on June 24th - a meeting of the Grand Lodge of Ireland to install the new Grand Master, the 1st Earl of Rosse. Unfortunately the exact date of the foundation of the Grand Lodge is not known, but the installation of a new Grand Master would suggest it was already in existence a couple of years. 1725 is the year celebrated in Grand Lodge anniversaries. Membership is open to all men of integrity and goodwill, irrespective of colour or creed, on condition that they profess a belief in a Supreme Being. How they choose to worship Him is not of interest to us.

    The Grand Orient of Ireland is an organization, which is motivated by two great principles: the respect for a tradition inherited from the founders of freemasonry and enlightenment and the search for progress for the improvement of Men and Society. Our lodges are open, liberal and adogmatic. The biggest stumbling stone is the close connection to the Orange Order. Masons under the Grand Lodge of Ireland are allowed to be members in the Orange Order, which is practising an attitude in contrast to the brotherhood, tolerance and freedom of thinking practised by Masons worldwide.

    Масонство Несмотря на то, что масонство – самая большая братская посвятительная организация в мире, и об этом много сказано и написано, составить реальное представление о нем непросто. К сожалению, существует давняя и прочная традиция искажений и мистификации этого явления. Сложно дать масонству краткое определение. В русском языке даже нет подходящего словарного запаса. Как перевести на русский язык название раздела fraternal organizations, под которым масонские организации помещаются в иностранных телефонных справочниках? Наши определения масонства не будут корректно отвечать правилам дефиниций формальной логики. Потому что в нашей социальной реальности масонство можно определить только через описания, в ряде случаев только через описания пространные. Итак, масонством можно назвать добровольное объединение свободных самостоятельных мужчин. Это объединение структурировано, до определенной степени иерархично, предполагает соблюдение множества традиций и во внутреннем поведении членов этого объединения очень важен так называемый масонский протокол. Это объединение международного характера, состоит более, чем из двух сотен международных структур – так называемых Великих Лож (Grand Lodges).

    La Storia della massoneria Sammarinese La Massoneria a San Marino ha esordito agli inizi del 1900, unico Fratello, a memoria era l'avvocato Giuseppe Forcellini, che frequentava Logge Italiane, Pesaro e Bologna, dove per alcuni anni ha svolto le funzioni di Segretario Comunale. Negli anni cinquanta la Massoneria si arricchì di due nuovi Fratelli italiani, venuti in San marino per incarichi statali, Lucio Lucci, maestro di musica presso il Conservatorio di Pesaro e Direttore della Banda Militare di San Marino; e Oliviero Cappelli in qualità di Direttore dell'ufficio tributario. Questi tre Fratelli erano quotizzanti presso la Loggia Garibaldi 145 all'Oriente di Pesaro. Sempre negli anni cinquanta il numero dei Massoni di San Marino aumentò per l'ingresso di due giovani. Negli anni sessanta e settanta altri giovani furono iniziati, alcuni presso la Loggia Garibaldi di Pesaro, altri presso la Loggia Europa di Rimini, gemmata dalla Garibaldi. Nel Duemiladue furono innalzate le Colonne in San Marino all'obbedienza del G.O.I., tre Logge che il 6 aprile 2003, si riunirono nella Serenissima Gran Loggia di San Marino, per il lavoro e la volontà del Venerabilissimo Gran Maestro Federico Micheloni.

    Regularna Velika Loža Srbije Gledajući unazad, u daleku, ali i neposrednu prošlost, razumevajući današnji trenutak i verujući u budućnost, možemo sa sigurnošću reći da je masonerija u Srbiji uspešno obnovljena i da je na pravom putu. Pored svih teškoća i prepreka na koje je nailazila, njen dalji razvoj je - postojanjem, delovanjem i ubrzanim rastom Regularne Velike Lože Srbije - stabilan i siguran. Svetlost je na ovaj prostor uneta još u 18. veku, ali je tek 90 godina prošlo od, nama daleke, 5919. godine, trenutka kada je osnovana prva Velika slobodnozidarska Loža na prostoru današnje Srbije. Neuobičajen je put njenog nastanka, i on je vezan za turobnu istoriju ovog evropskog regiona. Dok su se u masonskom svetu, već postojeće Lože stavljale pod zaštitu Velikih Loža na teritoriji države u kojoj su delovale, i iz njih se rađali pobočni redovi, ovde su istorijske okolnosti nametale drugačiji redosled. Tek je stvaranje nove države – Kraljevine Srba, Hrvata i Slovenaca, kasnije - Kraljevine Jugoslavije, obezbedilo uslove za formiranje Velike Lože. Ona je prolazila težak put uspona i padova, čak i duge periode dubokog sna, ali svetlost sama i njena ideja, nisu nikada ugašene. Želja za istinom, pravdom i slobodom vodila je oduvek one prave. Svetlost je ponovo rasplamsana, Velika Loža je probuđena. Nekoliko burnih godina je prošlo. Bezbroj teškoća nas je pratilo i sputavalo. Ipak, veliki entuzijazam, rad i napor, doveli su nas do današnjih dana. Stvari su najzad došle na svoje mesto. Regularna Velika Loža Srbije je ponovo postala izvorište slobodnozidarske ideje, zaštitnica 25 pravih i potpunih slobodnozidarskih Loža, bratstva od skoro hiljadu posvećenih ljudi na dobrom glasu, koren i osnov pobočnih redova. Zahvaljujući tome - sav masonski svet danas, u Regularnoj Velikoj Loži Srbije prepoznaje stvarnu snagu i jedinog nosioca suverene i vrhovne masonske vlasti na teritoriji današnje države Srbije – legitimnog naslednika prve Velike Lože čiju devedesetu godišnjicu – ove 6009. slavimo. Time je odato priznanje naporima koje smo uložili, lepoti koju smo prepoznali, snazi i mudrosti koju smo pokazali prevazilazeći i pobeđujući prepreke.

Велика Ложа је регуларна ако су је основале минимум три регуларне и признате Ложе, те су с тога УВЛС регуларног порекла. Вера у Великог Неимара свих светова претставља главни услов за примање у чланство ложе. Сви кандидати који полажу заклетву приликом примања, унапређења и уздизања то чине испред отворене књиге Светог Закона и тиме обавежу своју савест дужношћу према Свевишњем. Чланство Велике ложе и свих њених ложа састоји искључиво од мушкараца, и Велика ложа нема никакве масонске или другачије односе са било којом Великом ложом која прима у чланство жене или признаје тело где су чланови жене. Велика ложа има суверену власт над ложама под својом заштитом, односно представља независну, самосталну организацију која контролише неприкосновено рад на Ученичком, Помоћничком и Мајсторском степену у ложама под својом заштитом. Три велика светла слободног зидарства, наиме Књига светог закона, Шестар и Угломер, увек се налазе изложени у ложи приликом рада. Строго се забрањује дискусија о политици и религији у ложама. Стародавни принципи и начела слободног зидарства се строго поштују.

    Čo je slobodomurárstvo Slobodomurárstvo je jedno z najstarších nenáboženských bratských spoločenstiev. Je spoločenstvom mužov so spoločným záujmom o morálne a duchovné hodnoty. Slobodomurárstvo je filozofické, etické a filantropické hnutie a dielňa demokracie, ktorého zásady sú vzájomná znášanlivosť a úcta k ľuďom. Slobodomurárstvo si kladie za cieľ mravné zdokonaľovanie svojich členov, ale aj všeobecné zdokonaľovanie spoločenskej morálky presadzovaním hodnôt solidarity, dobročinnosti a humanity. Tri základné princípy Po mnoho rokov stojí slobodomurárstvo na týchto troch základných princípoch: Bratská láska Každý správny slobodomurár preukazuje toleranciu a rešpekt k názorom druhých a správa sa s láskavosťou a porozumením k svojim blížnym. Pomoc Slobodomurári sa učia praktikovať charitu a ako sa starať - nie len o seba - ale aj o spoločnosť ako celok, a to tak charitatívnym dávaním ako aj dobrovoľným úsilím a svojou prácou. Pravda Slobodomurári sa usilujú o pravdu, vyžadujúc vysokú morálnu úroveň a smerujú k jej dosahovaniu v ich vlastnom živote. Slobodomurári sa domnievajú, že dodržiavanie týchto zásad predstavuje spôsob ako dosiahnuť vyššiu úroveň života. Email:

    Grande Loge Féminine de Suisse

    Historique de la Grande Loge Féminine de Suisse Le 26 avril 1964, la Grande Loge Féminine de France apporte la Lumière maçonnique en Suisse grâce à 11 Franc-Maçonnes qui créent une Loge féminine à Genève. Une deuxième Loge sera ouverte en 1970 à Neuchâtel. En 1972, des Franc-Maçonnes suisses fondent deux Loges indépendantes de la France, à Genève et à Lausanne, puis une troisième en 1974 à Genève encore. Ces trois Loges créent, en 1976, une Obédience qui prend le titre de Grande Loge Féminine de Suisse - Confédération de Loges et de Rites. Deux Loges seront ouvertes sous l'égide de la Grande Loge Féminine de France, en 1977 et 1981 et quatre sous celle de la Grande Loge Féminine de Suisse en 1977 (1), 1982 (1) et 1983 (2). Le 16 juin 1985, 4 loges de la Grande Loge Féminine de France deviennent indépendantes, et forment temporairement la Grande Loge Féminine d'Helvétie. Le 29 juin 1985 l'union de toutes les Loges féminines du territoire helvétique voit le jour. En effet, la Grande Loge Féminine d'Helvétie, regroupant 4 Loges, et la Grande Loge Féminine de Suisse, regroupant 7 Loges, s'unissent pour former une seule et même Obédience féminine suisse, sous le titre: GRANDE LOGE FEMININE DE SUISSE G.

    Fédération Suédoise du Droit Humain

    am-Frimurare-Orden (Co-Masonry) Le Droit Humain Frimureri för kvinnor och män på lika villkor I Korthet Le Droit Humain är en internationell frimurarorden som upptar kvinnor och män på lika villkor. Orden finns över hela världen med ca 28 000 medlemmar i ett nätverk med internationella kontakter. I Sverige finns vi för närvarande representerade i Stockholm och Malmö. Organisation Huvudkvarteret, det Högsta Rådet, HR kort och gott, finns i Paris och utgörs av representanter från alla de olika federationerna. Dessa utgörs oftast av logerna i ett land, men i vårt fall består de av logerna i de tre skandinaviska länderna, Danmark, Norge och Sverige och kallas följaktligen för den Skandinaviska Federationen. De olika federationernas representanter i HR utser vart femte år en Stormästare som får sitta som längst i två perioder. Federationerna styrs av HRs representant tillsammans med ett federationsråd bestående av representanter från de olika logerna. I samband med det årliga federationsårsmötet hålls ett konvent som röstar i frågor som rör förändringar som föreläggs konventet av federationsrådet. Det är egentligen bara detta att kvinnor upptas på lika villkor som män, som skiljer oss från andra loger. Den ritual vi följer i vår Federation av Orden är den så kallade skotska ritualen som används av de flesta manliga loger. Det svenska manliga frimureriet har ett eget system. Vår Orden har efter hand blivit erkänd i de flesta länder som en reguljär frimurarorden, vilket har medfört att våra manliga medlemmar kan gästa det manliga frimureriets loger. Detta gäller dock ej i Sverige och det "svenska systemet". Det är dessvärre även ett stycke kvar på vägen innan vi når erkännande även för kvinnorna. Något annat som skiljer vår Orden från övriga är att vi för att bevara den internationella prägeln har ett samlande Högsta Råd, som nämndes tidigare, i Paris. De flesta andra ordnar har sin högsta myndighet innanför det egna landets gränser, som regel i form av en s.k. storloge eller stororient. Sedan det förra stormötet i Paris 2002 har Le Droit Humain slutit en serie samarbetsavtal, "Letters of Intent" med bland andra Grand Loge De France, Grand Orient De France, den danska Storlogen, med flera, om mötesutbyte, där våra kvinnliga medlemmar får möjlighet att besöka traditionellt manliga frimurarloger. Detta är ett genombrott! Historik Frimureriets moderna historia grundlades 1717 då fyra loger bestående av spekulativa murare slog sig samman och grundade storlogen i London. År 1732 fördes rörelsen över till Frankrike och därifrån vidare ut i Europa, där det under loppet av nästa århundrade grundades ett flertal logesamfund. Ett antal loger från den franska Storlogen grundade 1880 en självständig orden. En av dessa loger, "De fria tänkarna", upptog 1882 en kvinna vid namn Maria Deraismes för att hedra henne för en stor humanitär insats. Man hade inte föreställt sig den uppståndelse detta skulle medföra. Logen blev rätt och slätt utesluten av sin moderorden, som vid den tidpunkten endast var två år gammal. Under följande elva år skedde ingenting av större betydelse, bortsett från att Maria Deraismes logebröder ännu tydligare insåg vilken orätt man begick genom att inte tillåta kvinnor att få tillträde till frimureriet. Detta resulterade i upptagandet av tretton kvinnor den 14 mars 1893, och den 4 april upprättades logen "Le Droit Humain", vars namn betyder "mänsklighetens rättigheter". Under 1899 grundades Det Högsta Rådet och det började uppstå nya loger runtomkring. De flesta stred mot ett hårdnackat motstånd från de redan etablerade manliga logerna. I Norden grundades den första logen i det dåvarande Kristiania (numera Oslo) 1912. Den första svenska samfrimurarlogen grundades den 1 maj 1918. Vad är frimureri? Det finns många meningar om vad frimureri är, och detta har givit upphov till de många olika frimurarordnarna. Även inom den enskilda Orden finns det skilda uppfattningar. Alla kan de dock rymmas inom det man kallar frimureri, i det att en av de för alla Ordnarna gemensamma och grundläggande huvudsatserna är: Att vara fri. I frimureriet är man fri, inom vissa ramar, till att ha sin egen tro och sin egen trosuppfattning. Dessa ramar består i att frimureriet är en lära uttryckt i ceremonier belysta med symboler, och att vi erkänner existensen av en skapande princip. Vi bekänner oss inte till någon speciell religion och kräver inte någon särskild trosuppfattning av våra medlemmar, undantaget dock varje inställning som främjar ondska, våld och förtryck. Konsekvensen av vad frimureriet lär är tolerans, fördomsfrihet och humanism. Frimureriets syfte Frimureriets syfte är att främja mänsklighetens sanna väl. Detta sker genom det symboliska hantverket att "hugga och putsa sten". Ju mer osjälviskt vi handlar som individer, desto bättre kan vi främja mänsklighetens sanna väl. Det är få förunnat att vara helt osjälviska i tanke, tal och handling. De flesta av oss är nog i behov av att putsas litet. Det är här frimureriet kommer in i bilden. Som sagts är frimureriet en lära uttryckt i ceremonier som belyses av symboler. Symbolerna härstammar från murarhantverket och detta har givit frimureriet dess namn. Genom studiet av dessa symboler och genom den kunskap som förmedlas genom ceremonierna är det meningen att vi, var och en för sig, skall utveckla oss mot en sådan grad av klarhet, att vi skall kunna verka som sanna världstjänare. Den sten vi skall hugga och jämna till, är oss själva. Detta och inget annat är frimureriets syfte, och det är inte på något sätt hemligt. Frimureriets bakgrund I de ceremonier vi utför har vi en metod att arbeta med oss själva, att lära på nytt. Användandet av ceremonier och symboler i en sådan utvecklings- och inlärningsprocess är ingenting nytt och inte heller unikt för frimureriet. De forna mysterieskolorna använde sig av samma metoder i förberedandet av kandidaterna till de stora mysterierna. Dessa stora mysterier var förbehållna ett litet fåtal människor och sägs ha givit tillgång till direkt kunskap om livet, kosmos och Gud. Före invigningen i de stora mysterierna låg tidigare en lång tid av utbildning och träning där vissa ceremonier ingick. Dessa förberedande ceremonier blev kallade de små mysterierna, och vi menar, även om det inte alls kan bevisas, att våra ceremonier härrör från dessa mysterier, och denna tid. Det kan heller inte avvisas att andra av nutidens ordnar har samma innehåll som frimureriet, om än i en annan form. Gemensamt för dem är i alla fall att de är en avspegling av den djupa kunskap som de vise besatt förr i tiden. Frimureriets metod Varför då inte förmedla denna kunskap genom t.ex. det skrivna ordet? Varför använda ceremonier? Låt oss förutsätta att vi skall lära oss innehållet i en bok. Efter en första genomläsning har vi en aning om vad som står där, efter andra gången kan vi innehållet bra, efter en fjärde eller femte genomläsningen kan vi inte lära oss mera, och vi förlorar intresset. I ceremonier och symboler finns en mångtydighet som det är mycket sällsynt att språket når fram till. Man bör räkna med, att även om ceremonierna förmedlas genom det skrivna ordet, så upplevs de genom levande människors framställning med de många dimensioner som kan läggas häri. Det är förunderligt att se samma ceremonier upprepade gånger och ändå alltid gå därifrån med upplevelsen av att ha lärt sig något nytt. När en människa har tillägnat sig något nytt och har utvecklat sig, så ändras hennes betraktelsesätt och en ny dimension avtäcks. Vidare är ceremonier och symboler långt mer tidlösa än språket. En bild tolkar man alltid utifrån sin egen tid och kultur. Den talar till personen där hon eller han befinner sig just för tillfället. Den avlägsnar samtidigt en källa till oöverensstämmelse. Ofta kan två människor vara överens i det som är grundläggande, men på grund av ordvalet tror de sig vara långt från varandra. Ta t.ex. begreppet "GUD", på hebreiska är det JHVH, på arabiska ALLAH. Om solen skulle användas som symbol för det gudomliga, skulle den förstås av alla. Det finns ingen auktoriserad utläggning av frimureriets innehåll. Vi har inga "teologer" som talar om för oss vad som är sant. Vi talar tillsammans om tvivel och berättar för varandra om våra uppfattningar, men det står var och en fritt att förklara och handla efter eget samvete, i varje fall så länge som frimureriets ideal stadigt hålls medvetet. Detta krav på självständiga ställningstaganden är för övrigt en god övning för var och en. Sist men inte minst: Den som inte är mogen att förstå och förvalta denna kunskap, kommer på inga vis att vara i stånd att förstå vad som döljer sig bakom allegoriernas slöjor. Varför är frimureriet hemligt? Som framgår av ovanstående, är det endast ceremoniernas förlopp och betydelse som hemlighålls. Vilket syftet är, och hur det nås, är inte hemligt. Men när man likväl bara kan förstå något då man är mogen härtill, varför hålla något hemligt? Det finns det goda anledningar till. Det bästa argumentet är den psykologiska påverkan som själva invigningen har på den som söker medlemskap. Alla invigningar i de olika graderna har sina särpräglade drag, som direkt påverkar sinnen, känslor och tankar. På så vis kan det bli en början till nytänkande, omvärdering och djupare förståelse. Som tidigare nämnts tror vi att våra ceremonier liknar de som förr i tiden förde in i de stora mysterierna. Även om frimureriet självt inte längre kan påstås ha tillgång till dessa stora invigningar, står dock denna möjlighet öppen -- att de kan nås. I sådana fall är förmågan att tiga om det, om vilket intet bör sägas, ett helt oundgängligt krav. Om man inte kan tiga om de små hemligheterna, som är oskadliga i den oförståendes händer, hur blir det då med den kunskap som kanske kan vara mycket farlig i den okunniges, eller den direkt ondes händer? Sist men inte minst kan vi se tillbaka på 1940-talet, då det var direkt farligt att vara frimurare, och under tidigare epoker, då många medlemmar av olika ordnar slutade sina liv på kättarbålen. Mot denna bakgrund är den enskilde medlemmens önskan om att hålla sig anonym kanske mer förståelig. Vad sker på mötena? Mötena är en mycket central punkt i frimureriet. Det är här vi hämtar inspiration, insikt och kraft till det egentliga arbetet utanför logen, i vardagen. En logekväll består av första delen av ceremonin följd av antingen ett föredrag eller en invigning. Därefter fullföljs den andra delen av ceremonin. I mån av tid avslutas kvällen med samvaro och någon form av förtäring, den så kallade brodermåltiden. Frimureriet är indelat i olika grader. Innehållet i de grader som ligger framför en är okänt. Invigning av nya medlemmar sker vederbörligen i första graden. Föredragen är en del av den utväxling av synpunkter och idéer som sker inom frimureriet, med syftet att vidga våra insikter och perspektiv. Den enskildes upplevelse av ceremonierna kan vara ett ämne för ett sådant föredrag. Den upplevelse som de enskilda medlemmarna har av mötena kan variera åtskilligt. Några menar att frimureriet först och främst appellerar till en humanitär insats. Andra upplever själva mötet som en slags andakt, inte olik en gudstjänst. Några ser det som en rent esoterisk skola. Åter andra som ett slags andligt kraftcentrum där positiva energier direkt påverkar medlemmarna och den omgivande världen. Dessa uppfattningar strider inte mot varandra. De är blott olika aspekter av samma sak, sammanhållna av föremål och symboler. Medlem i vår Orden Enligt våra stadgar och enligt allmän praxis görs ingen skillnad på ras- eller religionstillhörighet. Det krävs att man har fyllt 18 år, är fri, av gott rykte och i besittning av sitt fulla förnuft. Vidare skall man självfallet känna sig tilltalad av frimureriets form och innehåll vilket många, men långt ifrån alla, gör. Ett medlemskap kan principiellt sägas vara av bindande karaktär. Man bör därför noga tänka igenom detta innan man ansöker om medlemskap. Visar det sig att man ändå inte känner sig hemma är det självfallet möjligt att avsluta sitt medlemskap. Det tystnadslöfte man avlägger kommer man dock alltid att vara bunden av inför sig själv. När man har blivit medlem har man mötesplikt, och får man förhinder meddelar man detta till sin loges ledning, en så kallad ursäkt. Vidare är man förpliktad att betala sin medlemsavgift. Denna fastställs av den enskilda logen. Medlemsavgiften täcker logens nödvändiga utgifter, inte mer. Syftet med denna sajt Vi vill berätta litet om vad frimureriet är och litet grann försöka skingra dimmorna omkring företeelsen. Avsaknad av kunskap är ofta orsaken till dåliga rykten med påföljande avståndstaganden. Vi vill försöka undanröja dessa för att därmed bana väg för en större förståelse av frimureriets egentliga, sanna natur, och vidare berätta lite om vår Orden, "Le Droit Humain", som har som sitt speciella kännemärke att män och kvinnor upptas och arbetar tillsammans på lika villkor. Vi hoppas att denna sajt kan medverka till att sprida ljus över vissa sidor av frimureriet. Om du önskar närmare upplysningar om vår Orden, utöver vad denna sajt kan bjuda, finns en kontaktadress längst ned på denna sida.

    Ett ordenssällskap i tiden med en fantastisk historia Frimureriet har i över 275 år varit en vital del av det svenska samhället. Med syfte att verka för mänsklighetens förbättring och förädling, fortplantas orden från generation till generation. Vår tid pressar oss allt hårdare. Osäkerheten i tillvaron, uppvärderingen av det materiella och förlusten av traditionella värden är grogrunden för ett tilltagande främlingskap människor emellan, en farlig isolering mitt i kollektivet. I denna situation har frimureriet idag något väsentligt att ge: Att bibehålla människan och människans värde i vårt samhälle. Svenska Frimurare Orden är i dag en sammanslutning där män av skilda samhällskategorier, yrken och åldrar träffas för att arbeta på sin personliga utveckling och för att umgås under värdiga former. Svenska Frimurare Orden har ca 15.000 medlemmar. Hans Majestät Konung Carl XVI Gustaf är Svenska Frimurare Ordens höge beskyddare. Ordens Stormästare är jur. kand. Anders Strömberg. Den kristna tron är grunden för det svenska frimureriet. Frimureriet påtvingar inte medlemmen någon viss kristen trosuppfattning. En frimurare avkrävs inget löfte som sätter honom i konflikt med Gud och den egna tron. Svenska Frimurare Orden är, liksom varje lands frimurarorganisation, en självständig nationell organisation. Genom att varje land själv svarar för sin organisation förekommer mycket stora olikheter. Det svenska systemet tillämpas även i Norge, Danmark och Island. Genom regelbundna möten eftersträvas största möjliga likformighet i ritualerna. Ordensledningen har sedan 1877 sitt säte i Bååtska palatset på Blasieholmen i Stockholm, en byggnad från 1600-talet. Den inrymmer lokaler för kansli och logeverksamhet samt samlingslokaler för måltider, konserter etc. Där finns också värdefulla kultur- och konsthistoriska samlingar. Ordens kansli är inrymt i samma kvarter vid Nybrokajen.

    SİZİ SEVGİ VE SAYGILARIMIZLA KUCAKLIYORUZ Hür Masonluk “Yüce Varlık’a İnanç” temeli üzerine kurulu bir “Kardeşlik Kurumu”dur. Kendilerinden başlayarak bütün insanlar arasında sevginin, toleransın ve kardeşlik bağlarının kurulmasını hedefler; tüm insanların hürriyet, barış, adalet ve huzur içinde gelişmesini ve yaşamasını amaçlar. Bu çerçevede Hür Masonluk, toplumsal değil, bireysel bir öğretidir. Üyelerini toplu ya da tek tek, bir kanaat veya fikri kabul etmeye ve açıklamaya asla zorlamaz. Her Mason, bu temel ilkeler ışığında izleyeceği yolu, kendi aklı ve vicdanıyla saptar, böylece kendi Hakikati’ni araştırır. Hür Masonluk, üyeleri arasında din, mezhep, ırk, dil, inanç, ünvan ve makam ayırımı yapmaz. Üyelerini inançlı, hür, namuslu, şerefli, haysiyetli, aydın ve iyi ahlâklı erkekler arasından seçer. Hiçbir inanç ve ülküye bağlı olmayan septikleri, arasına kabul etmez. Kurulduğu ilk günden bu yana insanoğlunun fikren ve ahlâken kendini geliştirmesini ve insan zekâsının hürriyetini hedefleyen Hür Masonluk, bireyin gelişmesini engelleyen batıl inançların ve kör taassubun daima karşısında olmuştur. Bu ise, insanoğlunun fikrî ve ahlâki gelişimini kendi tekeli altında tutmak isteyen bazı şahısların ve kurumların Hür Masonluğa karşı temelsiz suçlamalarda bulunmasına yol açmıştır. Dünyada Hür Masonluk kadar eski ve önemli olup da tam ve doğru anlaşılamamış başka bir kurum yoktur. Bu, yalnız ülkemizde değil, dünyada da öyledir. Batıl inançlara ve taassuba tutsak olmuş bazı kesimlerce Masonlara yakıştırılan suçlamalar temelsiz ithamlardır. Böylesine ithamlarda bulunanlar, asılsız bir dedikoduyu seslendirdikleri için, her şeyden önce, kendi akıl ve vicdanlarına karşı haksızlık yapmaktadırlar. Masonlar bunu böyle düşünmektedir. İşte bu yüzden Hür Masonluk, tarih boyunca, kendine karşı yapılan hiçbir saldırıya yanıt vermemiş, kendini savunma gereği duymamıştır. Çünkü şuna inanmakta ve bilmektedir ki, kendi akıl ve vicdanıyla hareket eden her objektif insanın yapacağı en küçük bir araştırma bile, Hür Masonluğun nasıl bir kurum olduğu gerçeğini derhal ortaya çıkaracaktır. Kişi isterse bunu benimser, istemezse benimsemez. Bu onun kendi kararıdır. Hür Masonluk gizli değil, sadece üyelerine açık, üye olmayanlara ise kapalı bir topluluktur. Gizli bir topluluk olarak addedilmesinin nedenlerinden biri, üyelerinin çok eski zamanlardan bu yana geleneksel semboller ile tanışma işaret ve sözlerini kullanmalarıdır. Oysa Hür Masonluğun ülküsü, ilkeleri ve tüzükleri sır değildir. Hür Masonluk yasal bir topluluktur. Türkiye'de faaliyet gösteren her dernek gibi, Hür ve Kabul Edilmiş Masonlar Büyük Locası Derneği de Devletimizin denetimi altındadır. Üstelik Kardeşliğimiz, üyelerinin birer vatandaş olarak ülkesinin yasalarına uymasını ve vatanına sadakat ve şerefle hizmet etmesini zorunlu tutar ve bunu kutsal bir görev sayar. Derneğimiz kamu düzenine aykırı hareketten, yüz kızartıcı bir suçtan mahkûm olan veya bir Masona yakışmayan bir yaşam tarzı sergileyen üyesini de derhal bünyesinden uzaklaştırır. Ayrıca, kendi arzu ve iradesiyle Mason olmak isteyen ve bu sıfatı kazanan herkes, istediği zaman üyelikten ayrılmakta da serbesttir. Derneğimiz, üyelerine Mason olduklarını açıklamaları ya da gizlemeleri için baskı yapmaz. Onları kendi akıl ve vicdanlarıyla baş başa bırakır. Buna göre, her üyenin, Mason olduğunu açıklama hürriyeti ve yetkisi vardır. Ancak bir Mason, başka bir üyenin Mason olduğu yolunda bir açıklama yapma yetkisini kendinde görmez. Hür Masonluğun kapıları, Masonluğu yaşamak isteyen iyi niyetli, inançlı, hür, namuslu, şerefli, haysiyetli, aydın, iyi ahlâklı ve dürüst insanlara açıktır.
