OVN

OVN, Foundation for the advancement of academic research into the history of freemasonry and related currents in the Netherlands. The website features short articles on the history of freemasonry.

Aims of the OVN

The OVN was founded after a private initiative by a group of academics and is not associated to any existing (masonic) organization or institute. The board is advised by an international committee of recommendation, consisting of professors of chairs in relevant fields of study. The OVN aims to ‘stimulate academic research from all disciplines into the history of freemasonry and related currents in The Netherlands and its former territories from the time of its foundation until the present day, as well as to stimulate the (international) exchange of knowledge and the results of research into this field’.

Conferences, publications and projects

In order to stimulate interest in the history of freemasonry the OVN regularly organizes lectures, international conferences and other events for a wide audience. Past conferences include: Masonic and Esoteric Heritage. A New Perspective for Art and Heritage Policies (The Hague 2005) and Symbolism in 18th Century Gardens. The Influence of Intellectual Cur-rents, such as Freemasonry (Schwetzingen, 2006). The published conference papers are available to order. The OVN aims to contribute to the preservation of masonic cultural heritage for future generations, as well as the accessibility of this heritage for research. In 2006/2007 several projects were initiated with support of academic and cultural subsidies. These included a pilot study into lodge buildings in the Netherlands, built between 1735-1945, as well as stock taking and publishing an overview of masonic archives and documents in Dutch public archives. In 2010-2013 the OVN assisted in the registration, conservation and accessibility of the early 20th century archives of mixed masonic orders in the Netherlands. The OVN regularly receives requests for information on masonic history, objects and heritage and aims to further develop its advisory function to students and academics, heritage professionals and the general public.
