WCFFH Conference, Paris, 26-27 May 2017
The second World Conference on Fraternalism, Freemasonry and History 2017: Research in Ritual, Secrecy and Civil Society, will be taking place in Paris this coming May. The event will include a Quatuor Coronati Panel Session – ‘Was the Duke of Sussex good for Freemasonry?’ – and below is the advance publicity for the session:
The Duke of Sussex (1773-1843) stood astride English freemasonry from 1813 until his death in 1843, and he was a Mason with strong views. His influence was not limited to England but spread across the English-speaking world, and indeed wider still. The effects are still being felt today; and he is a man who excites strong feelings. Come and join in the debate. Yasha Beresiner and John Belton will lead the teams for and against the proposition, and two seconders will be added nearer the date, as will a chairman (with a gavel) to keep good order in the hall. If you have an opinion on the Duke of Sussex then we positively invite you to come and join in. We shall take a show of hands before and after to see if opinions have been changed!
The current details for the conference as a whole are accessible here: preliminary schedule.
