Replays of conference-debates

La Voûte Étoilée offers replays of each conference-debate hosted by a Master Freemason, a Past GM, or renowned Freemasons. 

These replays reproduce both the conference and the exchanges between the speaker and all the Masons participating in the enriching debate which followed, with respect and kindness, as is usual in the Lodge.

They offer the possibility to the FF∴ and SS to deepen their search for Truth on the major themes addressed from the angle of Spirituality on the one hand and from the angle of Humanism and the Progress of Humanity on the other hand, at the moment which agrees.

These replays are available without time limit and can therefore be followed at any time, from any location in the world, at the Freemason's convenience, on PC, tablet or smartphone.

REPLLAYS prior to summer 2023 can be found in the conference-debate files.
