The “poking the beehive” series will come back with its season finale, or not… Meanwhile, I would like to share my most recent article, published in the last volume of REHMLAC+ (Revista de Estudios Históricos de la Masonería Latinoamericana y Caribeña).
The whole journal is worth reading, and you will find amazing articles on the theme “Freemasonry and Mass Culture”. “Rehmlac+” is an Open Access Journal and you can find it HERE.
I am an academic interested in the role of material culture as a source for the study of Freemasonry, and the position of this sociability network within the European cultural exchanges. Recently I have been researching the development of the ideas of moral and conscience in nineteenth-century France, and how Freemasonry served as a catalyst for the development of French secularism (laïcité). Conjointly, I investigate the development of Masonic imagery and its relations with the western esoteric traditions. Furthermore, I am interested in the history of Brazilian Freemasonry, its approaches to Brazilian Social Thought formation, and the relations between the Brazilian and European Masonic organizations and practices.
