I keep looking for places of exceptions, traces of the past, and cultural exceptions.
The temple of Hijos del Trabajo No. 74 is a fine example of the Argentine Masonic tradition.
This lodge was founded in 1882, and its actual temple is a magnificent ancient Rosicrucian temple.
Recent work has uncovered a secret passage in the basement.
We have here the strong feeling that Argentina was a land of European emigration.
Music is the most beautiful and powerful art form to express the human soul.
This is also the case in the Argentine Lodges ! Tango as a musical genre was born in Buenos Aires between 1850 and 1900, a mixture of many European musical forms of Latin American music and African rhythm. Although the harmonic foundation of tango is European, rhythmic part still contains models of African and Latin American. Tango expresses power of humanity, even in a traditional Lodge.
Thank you to the Lodge Hijos Del Trabajo 74, for the warm welcome and very enriching discussions.
The headquarters of the Grand Lodge of Argentina are among the oldest Masonic buildings in the country. The Great Temple is definitely one of the most beautiful temple in the world. In this place, Argentina’s history took place.
Interview with the great Master Nicolas Orlando Breglia.
The archives of the Grand Lodge of Argentina maintains treasures. In particular this letter of the Grand Orient of France dating from the 1850s and imposing the refusal of slavery in Brazil. This abolition, as we have seen in Antonina, Parana will only happen 30 years later.
Thanks to PHD Dévrieg Mollès (historian of the Grand Lodge of Argentina) for his involvement and his exceptional knowledge of the subject.
