|Topic: The Good Shepherd: An Eighteenth Century Masonic System
Du Bon Pasteur (The Good Shepherd) is an obscure and esoteric order of Freemasonry that was practiced in Poland in the mid-1700’s. This twelve degree system combines elements of Gnosticism, alchemy, kabbalah, and chivalry in the same system. The presentation will discuss the degrees of the Bon Pasteur system and compare them to others practiced in Masonic systems then and now.
