Resource verified by SHCG editorial group
Host: Ars Quatuor Coronatorum
Published annually The Lodge was founded in 1884 by nine Brethren* who were intent on using an evidence-based approach to the study of Masonic history and research into Freemasonry. This innovative approach was intended to replace the imaginative writings of earlier authors on the history of Freemasonry. This new style and approach was later to be referred to as the ‘authentic school’ of Masonic research. The Founders planned to develop an interest in research among Brethren everywhere, to have papers read and discussed in Lodge and published in its transactions: Ars Quatuor Coronatorum (AQC). The Lodge thus hoped to attract the attention and enlist the cooperation of Masonic scholars in all parts of the world. Quatuor Coronati Lodge, the Premier Lodge of Masonic Research, continues today to work to the standards laid down in 1884 and we strive to maintain the high quality of research and discussion established at our foundation. On this site you will find a selection of the papers from our transactions, AQC, which are published on behalf of the Lodge by Q.C. Correspondence Circle Ltd.
