When the COVID-19 pandemic situation began to get serious in early 2020, the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free & Accepted Masons of Oregon suspended all activities until Governor Kate Brown lifted her executive orders that restricted large groups from meeting. During this time, Freemasons and Masonic groups across the country turned to various online avenues to share information and lectures.

Since the COVID-19 situation is still developing, this page is incomplete. But it is a list of all of my lectures that have been put online during the pandemic shutdown in early 2020.

Pansophia and the Art of Memory

In March of 2020, I gave my first online lecture. This lecture was based on my Art of Memory lectures. You can purchase a copy of the video at this link, or find a link to the YouTube livestream of the lecture for free.

The Hypnerotomachia Poliphili: The Most Beautiful Book of Venice

In April of 2020, the Worshipful Master of Research Lodge of Oregon №198 asked me to present a lecture on the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili. Watch that lecture here!

In addition, the outline for this talk was used as the basis of a podcast episode on the subject. Listen to that episode here. That episode also has extensive show notes.

The Illuminati and German Society

This lecture was presented on behalf of the Lewis & Clark Chapter of the Philalethes Society to Research Lodge of Oregon №198 on May 23, 2020.

Climbing Jacob's Ladder

On June 9th, 2020, I presented an online lecture to Hibiscus Lodge №275 in Florida. This lecture is about the practice of the Art of Virtue in Freemasonry, whence it might have come, and how brothers can do this on their own.

Hermetic Freemasonry with Greg Stewart

I interviewed Bro∴ Greg Stewart on the Arnemancy Podcast. We discussed tons of interesting history surrounding Masonic ritual, early Freemasonry, and some of its esoteric influences. Check out the episode on the podcast website, or listen right here on this page!

Supporting Masonic Writing and Research

Most Masonic historians, authors, and lecturers are independent scholars, meaning that they do not belong to an academic institution, are frequently unaccredited, and are almost entirely self-supported or supported by donations from those who enjoy their work.

The best way to support continued, high quality Masonic research is by joining and supporting leading research organizations such as The Philalethes Society, The Phylaxis Society, and The Masonic Society. However, you can also help by supporting individual independent scholars like me.

Here are a few different ways you can help support my ongoing work and research.
