The Secrets of a Master Mason - Freemasonry, Qabalah and Geometry in the Lodge
The Lodge layout, furniture, and ritual are the records in the archives of Freemasonry's esoteric teachings.
These Secrets hide in plain site, and embody the Wisdom of the ancient Rabbis, the Strength of Greek Mathematics and the Beauty of the  Enlightenment philosophy of  Europe in the 1700. 

This slide presentation will question why a four sided Lodge is guarded by only three visible Officers and the North is dark; examine the deliberate misspelling of the Hebrew Name of one of the Twin Pillars; The Theory of Unity that underlies Pythagoras and the Rabbis who wrote the Torah; The meaning of our Tools beyond that explained in the ritual; The placement of the Great Lights and configuration of the apron as the degrees advance; The Biblical systems of Numbers; The Qabalaistic Tree of Life in Creation and mankind;  some theories on CHiram and the Mystery of The Widow’s Son; The Names of God; Brother Leonardo and Raphael, Fellowcrafts;  and the translation of the Substitute Word from Hebrew.

The Five Points of Fellowship, Grip and Word must be exchanged before you can attend.
Master Masons ONLY.

sun12The Masonic Lodge of Research is charterd under the Grand Lodge of Connecticut A.F.&A.M.  but differs  from most Lodges in the state.  MLR has only six meetings per year, and does not initiate candidates. Our meetings typically have a short business portion followed by a presentation by a member or guest, or a discussion of Masonic topics.

Any Master Mason in good standing in Connecticut, or any of Grand Jurisdiction recognized by the Grand Lodge of Connecticut A.F.& A.M, is eligible for membership, and is welcome to attend our meetings as a guest.

Some presentations given by Lodge of Research are open to a wider audience, and information about such events will be made available here as they are scheduled.
