Quatuor Coronati is the world’s premier Masonic research lodge.
Established in 1884 and consecrated in 1886, our founders adopted an evidence-based approach to Masonic history that was intended to replace the more imaginative writings of earlier authors; it became known as the ‘authentic school’ of Masonic research.
Quatuor Coronati applies the same principles today. We hold meetings incorporating lectures five times a year, usually at Freemasons’ Hall, Great Queen Street, London; publish our lectures, research papers, and ‘notes & queries’, in Ars Quatuor Coronatorum – ‘AQC’, the annual Transactions of the Lodge, distributed internationally; arrange conferences & symposia on different aspects of freemasonry; and share our research and encourage scholarship via the QC Correspondence Circle – ‘QCCC’, the world’s first and oldest Masonic research society established over 130 years ago.
Wherever you are based, from the Americas to Europe, Africa, Asia and AusNZ, we would be delighted if you were to join us as a member of QCCC. We are an international community and QCCC is open to everyone.
