The simplest and easiest way to become involved with Quatuor Coronati Lodge is to join QCCC – our international correspondence circle – where we welcome members from across the world.
The QC Correspondence Circle
Members of QCCC receive a copy of AQC, our Transactions, each December, copies of delivery papers, and invitations to Masonic events. Members are encouraged to bring guests on such occasions and are entitled to wear the bespoke QC jewel, lapel pin and tie. Other membership benefits include access to copies of delivery papers; and discounts on seminars, conferences, Masonic books and Masonic regalia.
Membership is open to all and those who are freemasons in a lodge within the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) or a jurisdiction recognised by UGLE are welcome to attend Quatuor Coronati Lodge meetings.
An ideal method of achieving a higher level of involvement is to become a Local Secretary. Local Secretaries are ambassadors for QCCC and act as benefactors. They are paid-up members of the Correspondence Circle who volunteer to represent the interests of QCCC in an area, country or region. In recognition of their service, Local Secretaries’ names are listed in AQC and/or on the website, and they are entitled to wear a designated QCCC jewel and lapel pin.
Local Secretaries represent and promote the Correspondence Circle in their respective districts. They provide information on and promote QCCC’s activities and QC Lodge meetings, and encourage brethren visiting London to attend QC and join the Correspondence Circle.

Providing Comments / Book Reviews
We welcome comments from Circle members on the papers presented in Lodge. We also welcome contributions to the ‘Notes & Queries’ section of AQC and book reviews of up to 1,500 words in length. Submissions should be sent via email to email@example.com.
Quatuor Coronati encourages QCCC members and members of other research lodges to apply to present papers for inclusion in AQC. They should be original and not have been printed elsewhere, although they may have been delivered as an unpublished lecture. If accepted, the paper may be presented by the author in Lodge with a longer, annotated version published in AQC. The long form paper is circulated before the lecture and is the basis for subsequent comment and discussion. In this the Lodge remains true to its original aim of presenting substantiated historical arguments. Details on how to submit papers to QC are available here.
Full Membership of the Lodge
Our By-Laws restrict the Lodge to 40 full members. To become a full member you would normally be expected to have delivered a paper to the Lodge. Membership of the Lodge marks those who have a recognised track record in publication and a reputation for rigorous research; many are experienced, long-standing members of other research lodges. A small number of members of QC manage the Correspondence Circle, prepare and edit the Transactions and other QC publications, and arrange symposia and conferences.
