The Expression of Freemasonry

In 2008 prof.dr. Malcolm Davies organized the conference 'The Expression of Freemasonry' in The Hague. The papers presented at this conference were to be published, but unfortunately prof. Davies became ill and passed away before he could finish the project. As the Leiden University or the Order of Freemasons Under the Grand East of the Netherlands, who supported the conference, did not pick this project up, the OVN Foundation has offered to do so instead. With the kind cooperation of various speakers, a selection of the papers will be published by the OVN Foundation in 2010, as a fitting tribute to prof. Davies' contribution to the field of study. More information will be made available at a later stage.
