Quatuor Coronati Lodge shares research and encourages scholarship via the QC Correspondence Circle – QCCC – the world’s first and oldest Masonic research society established over 135 years ago.

Wherever you are based, from the Americas to Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia & New Zealand, we would be delighted if you were to join us as a member of QCCC.  We are an international community and QCCC is open to everyone.

All members, individual and institutional, receive a copy of Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, the Transactions of Quatuor Coronati Lodge.

The volume is produced towards the end of each calendar year and mailed out in December to all members current as of November 30 in each year.

Members receive priority booking and discounted entry to conferences and symposia arranged by Quatuor Coronati, and enjoy discounts on non-QC regalia and books from our partner suppliers.

Members who provide their email address receive regular reminders of our Lodge meetings and other events, and can download a soft copy of the Summons and copies or summaries of Delivery Papers.

Those who are members of a lodge in a constitution recognised by the United Grand Lodge of England are entitled and welcome to attend QC Lodge meetings and warmly encouraged to stay for drinks and dinner, which provides an opportunity to meet the speaker and members in a relaxed setting.

All members of QCCC are encouraged to wear the Quatuor Coronati Correspondence Circle breast jewel, tie and lapel pin.
