At Ex Libris Academy, our journey is rooted in the deep respect for Freemasonry’s age-old traditions and the exciting potential of digital technology.
We are a dedicated Masonic Research Academy with a singular mission: to explore, understand, and shape the future of Freemasonry in the digital age. Our commitment extends to preserving the rich history of Freemasonry while embracing the opportunities that the digital revolution offers. Our mission is two-fold:
To promote the convergence of tradition and innovation, preserving the timeless wisdom of Freemasonry while pushing its boundaries in the digital realm.
To foster an international community of forward-thinking Freemasons who are committed to shaping the future of Freemasonry.
Our vision is to lead the intersection of tradition and digital innovation in Freemasonry. We envisage a future where these two domains are not dichotomous but are harmoniously integrated, creating an enhanced Masonic experience.
We envisage Ex Libris Academy as the premier platform for Freemasons worldwide to connect, learn, and contribute to the evolving practices of Freemasonry in the digital era.
Founded by a collective of passionate Freemasons, technologists, and researchers, Ex Libris Academy was born out of a shared belief in the power of digital technology to enrich and elevate Freemasonry. We saw an unmet need: a platform to explore the role of digital technology in Freemasonry, and to ensure that the traditions of Freemasonry evolve and remain relevant in the digital age.
Today, we stand as a beacon for Freemasons across the globe who share our vision. Together, we’re shaping the future of Freemasonry.
At the heart of Ex Libris Academy are our core values, reflecting both the timeless principles of Freemasonry and the forward-thinking mindset needed in this digital era.
Tradition: We respect and uphold the rich heritage and traditions of Freemasonry.
Innovation: We champion new ideas and embrace the potential of digital technology.
Community: We foster a diverse and inclusive community of forward-thinking Freemasons.
Excellence: We strive for the highest standards in all our research, discussions, and initiatives.
Integrity: We commit to transparency, honesty, and ethical practices in all our undertakings.
Welcome to Ex Libris Academy – where the wisdom of Freemasonry meets the promise of the digital age.
Ex Libris Lodge No. 3765
The Ex Libris Lodge No. 3765, founded in 1916, constituted under a warrant issued by United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) is steeped in a rich heritage that upholds the values of Freemasonry while dynamically embracing the future. The Lodge is recognised as a ‘Hall Stone Lodge’, denoting our principal contribution to the construction of the Freemasons Hall, which opened in 1933 as the Masonic Peace Memorial.
For over a century, the lodge has diligently upheld the traditions and principles of Freemasonry, imparting its profound teachings to generations of Masons. Yet, we recognise that to truly thrive, Freemasonry must adapt and evolve. Thus, we are transitioning into a Special Interest Research Lodge, focusing on the intersection of Freemasonry and Information Technology.
Our journey towards future-proofing Freemasonry does not forsake tradition. Instead, it harmonises the time-honoured rituals of the Craft with the transformative potential of the digital age. This unique approach positions us at the cutting-edge of Masonic practices, making Ex Libris Lodge No. 3765 an innovative force within Freemasonry.
At Ex Libris Lodge No. 3765, we believe that embracing change is integral to preserving the spirit of Freemasonry. We invite you to join us in exploring innovative, sustainable ways of practicing Freemasonry and contribute to the evolution of this revered tradition. Together, we will ensure that the values and practices of Freemasonry remain relevant, resilient, and robust, ready to inspire and guide future generations.
