13th California Masonic Symposium

This summer, Masonic scholars will convene in both Northern and Southern California to study a pivotal time in the fraternity’s past at the 13th Annual California Masonic Symposium

Guided by the research of Henry Wilson Coil Lecturer John L. Belton, Masonic scholars will lead a fascinating inquiry into the rise and fall of the Antients and Moderns – rival grand lodges in 18th century England. 
Attendees will learn about the political and social effects caused by this division – and later reunification, including how the effects of the rivalry traveled to the American colonies, profoundly affecting American Freemasonry. 
Belton will be joined by a panel of esteemed Masonic historians, including S. Brent Morris, managing editor of the Scottish Rite Journal; Past Grand Master of California R. Stephen Doan; and Deputy Grand Master John L. Cooper. 
The Symposium will be held in two locations:

June 22, 2013 - Pasadena Scottish Rite Cathedral

June 23 - San Francisco Scottish Rte Masonic Center
