4th International Conference on the History of Freemasonry Announced

The fourth International Conference on the HIstory of Freemasonry has been announced for 2013, and will return to Edinburgh, Scotland.

From the website:

The first International Conference on the History of Freemasonry was held in 2007 to establish whether or not Freemasonry could be considered a single separate subject worthy of its own platform. It is now clear based on the successes of ICHF 2007, 2009 and 2011 that answer is a resounding, YES. Whilst the organisers welcome invitations from Masonic bodies throughout the world to host ICHF within their own locale, there is something comforting in bringing ICHF 2013 back to where it began; Freemasons’ Hall, Edinburgh, Scotland. 2013 is significant in several respects, not least because it marks the 200th anniversary of the 1813 union of the two English Grand Lodges, the Ancient and Moderns, under the auspices of the Duke of Sussex (1773 - 1843). Undoubtedly a number of researchers will submit proposals for papers on this very subject.


  1. Keep us updated on when the event is going to held. This will be worth seeing. Thanks, Clint Probst

  2. Please keep us updated on the dates when they become available. This sounds like a once in a lifetime opportunity. Thanks, Clint Probst, Lodge 62 West Reading PA

  3. I would like to see this entire conference placed on VIDEO or a live stream and made available to the Craft of the World as "more light in Masonry".
    Al McClelland,PM.

  4. This looks like a great event


PLEASE sign or otherwise identify yourself in your comment posts. I have been FLOODED for months with spam comments, and I've been forced to laboriously screen every post now. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don't recognize you or if I'm in a grumpy mood.
