‘1723 Constitutions celebration’

Courtesy 1723 Constitutions

You didn’t think Quatuor Coronati would let the tercentenary of Anderson’s Constitutions pass without appropriate study and celebration, did you?

Of course you didn’t.

The seminal text of Masonic theory was published in 1723 at London, and 2023 shall be a time to commemorate and examine, thanks to the exertions of the world’s first lodge of Masonic research.

Unlike the 2017 tercentennial festivities honoring the birth of the grand lodge era, in which really any Freemason could partake, this commemoration, I predict, will be the domain of the education Mason.

There will be a conference at Cambridge, exhibitions at both Great Queen Street and the Washington Memorial, and other events, plus documentary publications and other merch to cherish.

Needless to say, there is a website. Keep your Third Eye on it for updates as the big year approaches.

Why not motivate your research lodge and Masonic library to think and act similarly?
