Abstract

Although masonic historiography has soared in the last fifty years, the interaction with women’s studies has only just started. Even if the presence of women was acknowledged, thanks to the pioneer work produced by Le Forestier and later Françoise Jupeau-Requillard and Gisèle & Yves Yvert-Messeca, women’s agency as such has only become an issue recently, following the seminal studies by Alexandra Heidle and Jan Snoek’s Women’s Agency and Rituals in Mixed and Female Orders (Leiden: Brill 2008), Màire Fedelma Cross’s Gender and Fraternal Orders in Europe, 1300–2000 (a collective work, Chippenham and Eastbourne: Palgrave Macmillan 2010) as well as Margaret Jacob and Janet Burke’s articles (recently collected in Les Premières franc-maçonnes , Bordeaux: PUB 2010). In 2010 the Bordeaux symposium on the history of women and freemasonry since the Enlightenment revealed the scope of the field now open to scholars as more than fifty papers were devoted to the issue and recently published (Cécile Révauger and Jacques C. Lemaire, Les Femmes et la franc-maçonnerie des Lumières à nos jours , La Pensée et les Hommes , [Bruxelles, 2011 & 2012, 2 vol.]). Yet in spite of major progress in the historiography of women and freemasonry, a gap remained,
