Free Monthly Library Lecture–July: Freemasonry in France
The Robert R Livingston Masonic Library of the Grand Lodge of New York
2018 Free Lecture Series Lecture No.7:
Worshipful Brother Graham Brown, Past Provincial Assistant Director of Ceremonies, Sussex, will present a brief overview of the development of Free and Accepted Freemasonry in France. He will trace “regular” Speculative Freemasonry from its introduction in the 1700s through the tribulations of the revolution, and the break with the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) in the late 1800s, to its revival with the creation of the Grande Loge National Francaise (GLNF) in 1913, and on to today.
Graham Brown was initiated into Freemasonry in 1976 in Sussex, England, and subsequently passed through the offices of the Lodge to be Worshipful Master in 1986. He also entered the Royal Arch Masons in Heene Chapter No. 6350 in Sussex, and passed through the offices to be First Principle in 1988. He subsequently received Sussex Provincial Honors in both Lodge and Chapter.
With the re-recognition by the UGLE of the Grande Loge Nationale Francaise in 2014, Graham was involved in the re-awakening of Saint George’s Lodge No. 3 (English Emulation) and Saint George’s Chapter No. 3 (Domatic), Royal Arch Masons, which are English speaking, and with the re-constitution of Phoenix Lodge of Research No. 30, which also works in English.
He has been a key researcher for the Phoenix Lodge of Research and has recently been appointed as Local Secretary for France for the Quatour Coronati Lodge of Research No. 2076, UGLE.
