Jurisdictions of Grand Lodge Freemasonry

From en-Rightpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Jurisdictions of Grand Lodge Freemasonry are the freemasonic bodies which are recognised as regular by the United Grand Lodge of England. The lodges require a belief in a Supreme Being—excluding atheists—and claims that discussion of politics is illegal in their lodges. It is refered to as "Atlantic Freemasonry" or "Anglo-Saxon Freemasonry", because it is historically most prominent in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia. Generally it predominates in Protestant majority countries of the former British Empire, the Netherlands, Scandanavia and historically Prussia. Compared to the proto-communistic and radical-republican oriented Grand Orient Freemasonry, it has historically been associated with a more conservative form of liberalism, varying on the availability of the Scottish Rite.
