Getting Involved

The simplest and easiest way to become involved with Quatuor Coronati Lodge is to join QCCC, where we welcome members from across the world.

The QC Correspondence Circle

Members of QCCC receive a copy of AQC, the 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 benefits include prior access to delivery papers, and discounts on seminars, conferences, and Masonic books and regalia.

Membership is open to all. Those who are freemasons in a lodge within the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) or a jurisdiction recognised by UGLE are also welcome to attend Quatuor Coronati Lodge meetings.

Local Secretaries

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. Click here for details on how to become a Local Secretary and to access a list of Regional Secretaries.

Providing Comments / Book Reviews

We welcome comments from QCCC 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 editor@quatuorcoronati.com.

Presenting Papers

Quatuor Coronati Lodge 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 They should be original and not have been printed elsewhere, although they may have been delivered as an unpublished lecture.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. Membership is by invitation and 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. Members of QC manage the Correspondence Circle, prepare and edit the Transactions and other QC publications, and arrange symposia and conferences.
