Canonbury Masonic Research Centre was founded in October 1998 and began work in December the same year. Its purpose is the study of western esotericism and related fields, in particular that of Freemasonry and the traditions linked to it. Our eventual aim is the development of an academic programme.
The last few decades of the 20th century have seen a marked growth of scholarship in the area of the western esoteric traditions, including such subjects as Hermeticism, Alchemy, Rosicrucianism, Kabbalah and Freemasonry. This has been reflected in the establishment of various institutions and university departments focusing on these areas. The Warburg Institute in London has long been a recognised place of excellence in similar subjects, and more recently there have been a number of departments established at universities throughout Europe to support such studies. A chair at the Sorbonne was established some years ago, while more recently we have seen a chair created in Amsterdam for the study of esotericism. A Chair has now been established at the University of Sheffield to direct a Centre for Research into Freemasonry. Professor Andrew Prescott, Director of the Centre, gave his inaugural lecture “Freemasonry and the Problem of Britain” on 5 March 2001 at the University of Sheffield.
The programme at CMRC gives London an active centre of scholarship in this field and and complements the work of the above mentioned institutions by providing various resources that have hitherto been lacking. In particular there is a need for the provision of research and support material and activities in the following areas:
