Sheffield Lectures Vol.2 published by the Centre for Research into Freemasonry
Sheffield Lectures on the History of Freemasonry and Fraternalism
Volume 2: Freemasonry and Fraternalism in Eighteenth-Century Russia
published by the Centre for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism (CRFF), University of Sheffield.
The volume, with the title Freemasonry and Fraternalism in Eighteenth-Century Russia (Eds. A. Önnerfors and R. Collis), contains five papers on various aspects of Russian freemasonry and fraternalism from Peter to Catherine the Great and is the first of its kind ever published in English. The remarkable history of the introduction of freemasonry and other fraternal groups clearly demonstrates that associational life was an integrated part of cultural exchange in Europe of the time and that British freemasonry freely moved across cultural and linguistic borders. For all friends of the CRFF it is needless to tell that all income generated by the sale of the book directly will benefit our research activities.
