A transformation from Speculative to Digital Freemasonry began on 19.03.2021 at the First General Assembly “The World Union of Sovereign Lodges – Libertas 5775”.

Digital Freemasonry
“All Freemasons In One Digital Lodge”

– Zoran Vojnić Tunić  19 March 2021

Zoran Vojnić Tunić is currently the President of the World Union of Sovereign Lodges – LIBERTAS 5775, as well as the Grand Master in the Grand Sovereign Lodge of Croatia – LIBERTAS.

Grand Sovereign Lodge of Croatia – LIBERTAS is an independent Grand Lodge in the jurisdiction of Croatia.

He is the initiator and one of the founders of Digital Freemasonry. In his early days upon admission, he found certain administrative tasks become increasingly more complex.

This is made more acute in regions of the world where there are a large number of liberal and independent Grand Lodges.

Thinking about how to improve these processes, the concept of a Digital app specifically for Freemasons, Lodges, Grand Lodges, and Associations.

He quite rightly understands that Freemasons who meet in physical masonic temples will wish to explore Freemasonry in a virtual world. Likewise, Freemasons from the metaverse will occasionally wish to meeting with brethren in the real world.

The two have to operate in parallel, and there needs to be a bridge between the two worlds.

Enter the Masonic Passport?

Masonic Passport is an smartphone app, available on both Apple and Android phones, where a masonic organization can schedule events and issue tickets.

Users have access to events based on the Masonic qualification, where they can register and make a seat reservation. They will also view all the activities listed in the calendar.

  • Passport is your identification and verification tool for attending events.
  • Tool for communicating emergencies to other members willing to help.
  • Map is a marketing tool for businesses listed by the member for the members.
  • Wallet contains receipts of all recent event transactions.

Today, almost 300 years after the founding of speculative Freemasonry and the adoption of fundamental principles, we have more than a real need to start solving the existing “chaos” brought to us by the Internet and the new Digital Age through constructive dialogue and a systematic approach.

Foundation of LIBERTAS

On 10/22/1775 the Reformed Freemasonry System LIBERTAS was founded. Also, the Declaration and “Drašković’s Observation” were adopted at the founding assembly, which speak very clearly about freedom, equality and brotherhood.

It is interesting to note that the declaration was made a year before the American Declaration of Independence and fourteen years before the French Revolution.

The founders of LIBERTAS are two extremely dedicated brothers of the Masonic name “Jacobus” and “Hieronymus”.

“The World Union of Sovereign Lodges – Libertas 5775”

At the initiative of the Grand Sovereign Lodge of Croatia LIBERTAS A.D. 1775, the Grand Lodge of Nikola Tesla from Serbia and the Grand Orient of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as the other Grand Lodges of the founders, at the founding assembly held on January 28, 2021 in Zagreb, a unanimous decision was made to establish the World Union of Sovereign Lodges – LIBERTAS 5775.

At this founding assembly, the Statute was adopted as the fundamental and highest act of LIBERTAS, and a decision was made to adopt and sign the Declaration on Foundation and Sovereignty by the members at a special ceremonial ritual work, which is to be held on March 19, 2021 in Sarajevo.

Admission to LIBERTAS membership can be requested by any Grand Lodge or Lodge that works in the open air, and the basic condition for admission to membership is primarily that the member fully accepts:

The Statute of the Union,
The Declaration on Foundation and Sovereignty and
The Constitution of 1775.
The work and activities of each member are independent and completely autonomous compared to the membership in LIBERTAS.

The World Union of Sovereign Lodges – Libertas 5775 is an association of independent Grand Lodges, which met on 19 March 2021 to sign a Declaration of the Foundation and Sovereignty
