Registration Form



As initiates of the Masonic Craft, we journey through life by unveiling the hidden mysteries using the oral tradition of the ancient mystics handed down to us from generation to generation. To fully appreciate and understand the masonic teachings, an initiate must have knowledge of both its exoteric and esoteric teachings. It is in this light that the District Grand Lodge of Lebanon launched “Magnus Geometres,” an initiative to promote Masonic research in Lebanon under its current education committee.

The initiative organizes lectures, presentations, chat groups and reading materials to all Freemasons under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Antient Free and Accepted Masons of Scotland, and any jurisdiction in amity. It is our sincere wish and hope, that through good research and understanding of our teachings, we may come to better appreciate the objective of our ancient institution and be able to live by its tenants and principles.



The Masonic Talks

Magnus Geometres will be hosting Masonic lectures and talks, with prominent Masonic Historians, Researchers, and Academics. These lectures are open to all Regular Master Masons under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Antient Free and Regular Masons of Scotland and all Lodges in amity.


To have access to our Magnus Geometres Masonic Talks you will need to be a registered member

The Spiritual Path of Freemasonry – Julian Rees
