List of Grand Lodges around the world

The following list is inevitably ongoing and developing... errors are rectified when informed of these.

Note that not all regular lodges are affiliated with a 'grand lodge'. Indeed, an increasing number of Lodges are working autonomously, some inter-connected through an association such as ALMA or FLLS. This does, of course, make it somewhat more difficult to maintain this page in an adequate and complete manner!

For some explanation about Grand Lodges in general, please check my "GL Explanation Page".

Dymaxion Map

Select a region by clicking on the map, the list to the left, or scroll down; for regions displaying information in tabular form, cf 'table explanation'.
The map is based on Buckminster Fuller's icosahedral dymaxion world map.

Compiled from numerous sources. Of special note are two key resources: Jean Solis's Guide Pratique de la Franc-Maçonnerie; and Paul Bessel's site - basically a similar page to this one. A couple of other significant online resources are Gary Dryfoos's Page About Freemasonry and Roald Atle Furre's masons.start4all.com.

footnotes

please use the 'back' arrow of your browser to return to the location you were viewing.

1) 'TS orientation' refers to those GLs that have decided to adopt Theosophical Society views with regards to Freemasonry, as expressed by Annie Besant and Charles Leadbeater. Unless you are TS inclined, I would personally encourage alternatives where these are available.

2) warnings: 'NR' means 'Not Recommended'. As I am at times asked if there are particular GLs I would personally either avoid or not recommend, I have added this small precautionary footnote to but few GLs:

a] the so-called 'Regular Grand Lodge of England' (with branches in various other places) and its derivative 'Grand Lodge of All England'. In my limited dealings with each, they have given me great cause for concern, and would suggest vigilant caution. UGLE has this to say:

There has been a split in the “Regular Grand Lodge of England" [Rui Gabirro, aka Robert H. Lamar, Duke Alexander of Cabinda, and Mangovo Ngoyo]. Two of their members were unhappy at the direction the RGLE is taking and have “revived” the old Grand Lodge of All England, known to Masonic historians as the York Grand Lodge.

The Grand Master of this new Grand Lodge is one John Gordon Graves and the Grand Secretary is Peter J. Clatworthy.

b] the 'A.U.M.' stems from Alice and Foster Bailey's views and appears to have rather unsavoury anti-semitic tendencies.

3) Various Lodges of the Grand Orient de France have initiated women (June 2008), with the GO recognises that these initiations were regular in all respects. The GO still has to, however, accept that its member Lodges are (or may be) Co-Masonic. My heartfelt congratulations to those Lodges and to the GOdF!


table explanation

For some geographical locations I have already added information as to whether its GLs exclude individuals on the basis of either gender of religious belief. Over time and as information is forthcoming, I hope to complete this for all regions. A brief explanation follows:
