Meeting March 16th 12 p.m.

The next meeting of the Maryland Masonic Research Society is March 16, $20 donation to attend includes lunch. Lunch begins at 11:00 a.m., followed by the presentation.

As we start our 45th year, we are also changing our meeting format. In discussions with others, it was mentioned that a lot of Masonic events focused on a presentation but were light on discussion. This year, we will meet as a “book club” or “study group”. There will be a reading or selection of readings of Masonic interest with a discussion leader. The goal is to have full participation with a group of knowledge seekers discussing Masonic topics.

Our first meeting will focus on Plato and be led by Ed Johnson, Past President of MMRS.

Suggested reading: Plato’s Republic Book VII (~30 pages)

Topic: In Book VII of Plato’s Republic, the allegory of the cave is presented. On occasion, this allegory has been said to be analogous to the three degrees of Freemasonry.
