The Journal of The Masonic Society


The quarterly Journal of The Masonic Society (ISSN 2155-4145) presents articles that enlighten our past, and explore solutions to the challenges facing Freemasonry today.

The Journal features articles by the best-known authors in Freemasonry, and the brethren from the lodge in your neighborhood. We especially invite research lodges to submit their papers to The Journal of The Masonic Society for publication to an international audience.

We also bring our members articles from the non-Masonic academic world that is looking with greater interest than ever at our fraternity and its place in society. And we present timely Masonic news, photos and commentary from around the globe, in full color.

From our special partnerships with the U.S. York Rite bodies, we also bring you the latest in news and scholarship avalable about the Royal Arch, Cryptic Masons and the Knights Templar, along with the Allied Masonic Degrees and appendant Masonic organizations.

The Journal of The Masonic Society features advertising from a select group of publishers, regalia maufacturers and fraternal supply companies which specialize in products specific to Freemasons. The Journal of The Masonic Society is the only magazine of its kind to do so in the U.S. and Canada.
