Masonic Research Societies and Resources
A Research Lodge is a Masonic lodge that is devoted to Masonic research. It is a lodge, and as such has a charter from some Grand Lodge. However, it does not confer degrees, and restricts membership to Master Masons of some jurisdiction in amity with the jurisdiction that the research lodge is in.
Related to research Lodges are Masonic Research Societies, which serve the same purpose but function fundamentally differently. There are Research Lodges in most countries where Freemasonry exists.
Most Research Lodges have some type of Transactions, Proceedings, or even just a newsletter that is published regularly.
There are many Masonic Lodges of Research and Research Societies.
Part of our Masonic growth is to learn about the craft. Membership to some of these Research and Society Masonic organizations can provide an invaluable information to those who are seeking further light.
