Une fois n’est pas coutume, c’est un livre en anglais que je me permets de vous recommander.
Un livre passionnant sur la Grande Loge d’York, qui a tenté, dix ans après l’union de 1813 qui a créé la Grande Loge Unie d’Angleterre, de faire revivre la Grande Loge des Antients.
Un livre essentiel sur une page d’histoire oubliée mais qui ne fut pas sans conséquences.
Un livre à lire !
His long awaited new book by Masonic historian Dr. David Harrison traces the strange tale of the last great Masonic rebellion in England which occurred in 1823.
The rebellion which started in Liverpool, sent shock waves through Freemasonry in England, which had only unified ten years previously. The rebellion was set against the backdrop of revolt and radicalism in England during the early nineteenth century, and the book reveals a story full of Dickensian intrigue and skulduggery as the rebel Freemasons tried to resurrect the “Antient” Grand Lodge.
This fascinating new book is a must for readers who enjoyed Harrison's previous two works “The Genesis of Freemasonry” and “The Transformation of Freemasonry”, and will be enjoyed by both Freemasons and general readers alike.
