Chapter Summary

The chivalric, templar and very influential masonic order of the Strict Observance (SO) has been subject to substantial research. But it has up to now been ignored completely that there existed plans to establish a female branch of it. The manuscript ?Maçonnerie des Dames; Iter Theil? consists of sixteen chapters that differ profoundly in volume and content and that touch everything from the proper dress of a female Freemason to the ideology of the Order. In Stockholm a lodge of adoption with the name ?La Véritable et Constante Amitié? was founded in 1776. The Swedish ritual presented belongs to the Adoption Masonry that at that time spread throughout Europe. Freemasonry?including its chivalric branches?did not take place and was not fixed within an exclusively male space; it was opened up to female participation.
