‘New book: Freemasonry in Haiti’

Theion Publishing

An announcement yesterday from Theion Publishing heralds the release later this year of Freemasonry in Haiti, a review of the Craft’s presence in the island nation that intends to illustrate “the intersections between the Occult and the Enlightenment.” From the publicity:

For this project, renowned photographer Leah Gordon is joined by Dr. Katherine Smith as editor of a selected collection of texts. This book also will feature an extensive introduction by Dr. Henrik Bogdan. … This publication aims to visualize the mesh of magic and reason; alchemy and science; trade and metaphysical exchange that has stretched into the 21st century. By focusing on Haiti, this book sheds light on the relationship between colonized peoples and the Enlightenment.

Read all about it here.

Leah Gordon was behind the exhibit “Vernacular Universalism: Freemasonry in Haiti and Beyond” at The Clemente four years ago. Henrik Bogdan will be among the speakers in the Grand Lodge of California’s symposium next month.
