GL Indiana Airs Online Masonic Education

The Grand Lodge of Indiana has launched a new online Masonic education effort.  Beginning January 1, 2011, and continuing through December 31, 2011, The Worldwide Exemplification of Freemasonry 2011 Lecture Series provides – free of charge – videotaped lectures from some of Freemasonry’s most prominent scholars on the history of the fraternity from the Middle Ages to today.

Each presentation is broadcast live on Saturdays at 7 p.m. CST and stored online for two weeks.  Viewers who tune in live on the web will have an opportunity to join with the speakers in a live conversation on a related Facebook page .
