Our lodge is dark tonight in support of:
The Grand Lodge of California and the Institute for Masonic Studies present a special guest lecture: The Swedish Rite of Freemasonry
Dr. Andreas Önnerfors, Co-Editor
The Journal for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism The Swedish Rite is a form of regular Freemasonry that is worked in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland, and is notably different from all other styles. The Rite is divided into three divisions: St. John’s (Craft) degrees (I–III), St. Andrew’s (Scottish) degrees (IV–VI) and the Chapter degrees (VII–X), with an additional XIth degree that is rarely attained. Learn more about the fascinating Masonic traditions of the Swedish Rite from a world-renowned academic scholar of Freemasonry, Dr. Andreas Önnerfors, who will be making appearances in Southern and Northern California.
