Chapter Summary

La Loge de Juste is the earliest mixed masonic lodge?i.e. a lodge for men and women?for which any clear records exist. The new Grand Lodge resolved that the official starting date for Dutch Grand-Lodge freemasonry was to be 26 December 1756 and that all that had passed before would be seen as null and void. The Hague was where the extensive diplomatic corps lived. It is important to remember that an Almanach containing a list of important dates and events is usually prepared and published before the year begins. It seems probable that La Loge de Juste had a very short life, measured in months rather than years. The lodge members are specially congratulated for being constituted by the Grand Master himself, an honour which is without precedent!.
