‘1717 & All That’ – Symposium at FMH
We hosted more than 200 visitors at our Symposium at Freemasons’ Hall in London on 15 February: Professors Andrew Prescott & Susan Sommers argued that the first Grand Lodge was not formed in 1717 but 1721; and John Hamill & Dr Ric Berman, contended the reverse.
Videos of the principal talks have been posted to YouTube and can also be accessed here:
The papers delivered on the day will be published in AQC 131 and mailed to all members of QCCC.
Tercentenary Conference on the History of Freemasonry
Celebrating 300 Years of the Grand Lodge of England
The three-day conference held jointly by Quatuor Coronati and Queens’ College closed on 11 September 2016 having brought together scholars from across the world to speak on the history and development of Freemasonry. More than 160 delegates and guests attended, and the proceedings have now been published. Correspondence Circle members are able to purchase the book, Reflections on 300 Years of Freemasonry, at a discount from Lewis Masonic.
Alongside a full programme of excellent lectures, the highlights of the weekend included a formal dinner at Queens’, Ric Berman’s Prestonian Lecture at Bateman Street attended by the Provincial Grand Master of Cambridgeshire and his team, the PGM and PGS of Leicestershire, and the GMs of Italy and Japan, among other distinguished attendees.
