IIe Conférence internationale Histoire, franc-maçonnerie, fraternalisme : Les sociétés et l’usage du rituel et du secret

26-27 mai 2017

WCFFH-Photo-A

Ce colloque est organisé par la revue universitaire on-line Ritual, Secrecy and Civil Society en partenariat avec la Bibliothèque nationale de France.

Cette manifestation se veut d’abord un carrefour pour réunir les différents acteurs de l’historiographie maçonnique et faire le point sur les dernières avancées dans ce domaine. Mais elle souhaite aussi étendre son champ de recherche à d’autres organisations fraternelles. Ainsi ce sera l’occasion de présenter les travaux pionniers conduits récemment sur les « Friendly societies » dans les mondes britannique et américain, les compagnonnages en France ou en Allemagne, ou encore sur certaines organisations ouvrières (Chevaliers du Travail) ou mutuelles, utilisant aussi rituels et « secrets » symboliques. C’est pourquoi nous prenons le risque d’adapter en français le néologisme « fraternalisme » utilisé depuis quelques années par les chercheurs anglo-saxons.

Inscription gratuite (mais obligatoire)

PROGRAMME

Avant chaque conférence, un séminaire rassemblant les chercheurs spécialisés est organisé pour faire le point sur un grand sujet de l’histoire maçonnique. Cette année il sera consacré à André-Michel de Ramsay et sera l’occasion d’échanges sur les avancées récentes concernant sa vie, son oeuvre et son rôle dans l’histoire de la franc-maçonnerie. Il se tiendra mercredi 24 mai 2017 à 14h à la Bibliothèque du Grand Orient de France.
