Chivalry, with its emphasis on the duty of a knight to his superior lord and to his lady and his companions, was part and parcel of the feudal system but it must Casual Dating Westfir Oregon 97492 stressed that chivalry was only expected of knights and nobles, in whom it was Married man looking for attention in Terrebonne, not of other classes.
In a sense, chivalry embodied a code of behavior, acceptable the Christian principles of the Church, applied to a class of person involved by virtue of their vocation and duty in violent activities and other activities the Church might deem sinful. But, increasingly, by the end of the Middle Ages and Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato the Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato of the powerful monarchical nation states of Spain, Portugal, France and England, knighthood and other titles were increasingly bestowed as a reward for service or achievement, rather than as a status which entailed a bonded military duty in exchange for privileges such as fiefs of land.
The recipients of knighthood were increasingly from the bourgeoisie, people who did not have fighting in their blood and were not inculcated with the chivalric code, neither was it expected of them.
As a consequence, warfare Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato more total and ruthless, with economic warfare and unbridled terror tactics bringing misery and death to untold thousands of innocent civilians. With the considerable success of the Protestant reformation in western Europe, with its emphasis on salvation by faith alone rather than by good works, the moral monopoly of the Church of Rome was broken and with it the code of chivalry which it had helped to nurture.
Although, by virtue of their isolation and resistance to the Reformation, Spain and Portugal managed to preserve the chivalric code to a greater extent than the rest of Europe, their rough handling at the hands of such unscrupulous and unchivalrous Englishmen as Sir Francis Drake caused the much grief.
By the turn of the 18 th. Century, the dust of ages had gathered on the tapestry of eternal, changeless Spain, still languishing in its long sunset of decline, still governed by its remote, absolutist monarchy Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato its army of bureaucrats, still answering to the toll of the fundamentalist tone of the Catholic church bell and to the chant of the Mass.
Then came something new, but like most things new to Spain it was taken up with fervour Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato some but stamped on Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato some intrusive cockroach by others. That something new, was Freemasonry. Phillip, Duke of Horny sluty local women, is one whom Freemasonry looks back to with some embarrassment for his personality was the least Masonic imaginable.
Wild, tactless, extravagant, and a habitual attention seeker, the Duke of Wharton was nevertheless a powerful orator and a formidable political opponent of the government of Horace Walpole.
At a highly irregular and chaotic meeting in Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato, he manipulated several London Freemasons into declaring him Grand Master. Soon after becoming bankrupt and to escape an indictment for treason, Wharton escaped to the Continent and was appointed Jacobite ambassador to Austria by the Old Pretender.
Having incurred the almost immediate dislike of the Austrians, Wharton arrived in Spain in and in became a Roman Catholic. He died in a monastery, penniless Seeking somewhat not Francisco moratoaged only In the same year,the Lodge of St.
Gibraltar had been, sinceunder British control and although this Provincial Grand Lodge of Andalusia went on to form lodges in southern Spain against great opposition from the local clergy, this jurisdiction is not within the scope of this paper.
Freemasonry in Spain first attracted ex-patriots from Britain and France but Spaniards soon joined and, as elsewhere in Europe, the knowledge of the formation of Lodges began to arouse the suspicions and hostility of the Church and the secular authorities especially, but not exclusively, in the Catholic countries. The first to prohibit Freemasonry was Grand-duke Gian Gastone of Tuscany just before his sudden death in An inquisitor sent by Pope Clement XII made several arrests but the parties were set at liberty by the Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato Grand-duke, Francis of Lorraine, who declared himself patron of the Order.
On 28 AprilPope Clement issued his Bull entitled In eminenti condemning Freemasonry and forbidding Catholics to join or aid Freemasonry under pain of excommunication. This was followed by an edict from the Cardinal Secretary of State dated 14 January pronouncing the death penalty on Catholics who were members of the Order.
In Spain the Bull received the royal exequatur and the Inquisitor-general Orbe y Larreategui published an edict dated 11 Octoberclaiming exclusive jurisdiction on the matter and called for denunciations within six days under pain of excommunication and a fine of ducats. The edict was read in churches and affixed to their portals.
This was followed by an edict in from the Spanish Monarch, Philip V, under which a number of Masons were sent to the galleys. This new denunciation sparked a new round of persecutions and this period is famous for the actions of Father Torrubia, a censor and revisor of the Inquisition, in allegedly attempting to carry out a plan to exterminate all Freemasons in Spain.
In order the achieve this he made use of the Seekung network of spies available to the Inquisition and, using a false name, joined the Order himself and was Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato enabled to draw up a list of 97 lodges then in existence. It is alleged that he obtained from the Papal Grand Penitentiary a dispensation to join the Order under Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato false name and to break his Masonic oath taken on the Bible.
Torrubia handed over his list to the Inquisition in Madrid and this led to the arrest of thousands of Freemasons. Finally, the Cardinal Vicar decreed the death sentence for all Freemasons. In spite of motato continuous persecution, Freemasonry in Spain survived. Inthe name of this body was changed to the Grande Oriente Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato and adopted the French system. It is known that many of the ministers of Charles III were Freemasons along with Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato impressive list of prominent Spanish nobles and high officials.
Indeed, in no small measure due to the character of the monarch, the reign of Charles III was notable for its taking on the spirit of the Enlightenment although little was done Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato carry out the necessary land reforms other than the confiscation of some Church Seeikng.
It is the anti-clericalism of the reign of Charles III, which included the expulsion of the Jesuits, and which was put into effect by a government that included several Freemasons in key positions, that helped Seekinb the permanent mindset that Freemasonry as an institution was involved in plotting against the Church.
However, it must be stressed that, Women looking for sex in the Jersey City the Spanish Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato under Charles III and Charles IV contained many Masons in prominent roles, the laws against Freemasonry remained in force although evidently somewat abated whilst the influence of the Count of Aranda remained in the ascendency.
German scholarship made little contribution to the fund of human knowledge in the thirty years the war raged over German territory but in England, France, Italy and Spain the development of new ideas in the liberal arts and sciences continued but at a slower pace until the more politically stable era of the late 17 th.
This extraordinarily vital period, spanning from the mid Fist my pussy then fuck my ass make it hurt. C to the dawn of the Industrial Revolution at the end of the 18 th.
The Church, however, was often hostile towards scientific or philosophical propositions which it deemed contrary to Christian dogma or scripture. Developing in parallel with the Age of Enlightenment was the Sweking of Liberalism as a socio-political movement. Liberal thinking was concerned with the rights of individuals and the concept that the state should exist to protect the rights of and lawful interests of individual citizens with especial emphasis on equality of opportunity and equal justice.
The principal pillars of Liberalism were freedom of conscience, freedom of thought and speech, the rule of law and equal treatment of all citizens by the justice system, equal rights, limitations on the powers of government, transparent government, and individual right to private property.
The concept that individuals are the basis of law and society and that society exists to further the ends of individuals without favour to any particular class or rank was, of course, close to being the opposite to the state of affairs that existed in most European states during the 18 th.
It is therefore not surprising that Liberal thought attracted the hostility of the established authorities including the Roman Catholic Church, itself a landowning power of some importance and an institution which had a hand in glove relationship with the nobility.
Not only that, but the Church feared that Liberalism would deprive the Church of its monopoly on education, its self-assumed right to impose its moral mores on the private lives of individuals and its claim to ultimate and unchallengeable authority on all matters of conscience and religious belief -God forbid, indeed, that citizens should make their own laws or even think freely!
Not only that, but many a Liberal Francisci had begun to question the established system especially the cost of maintaining someehat monarchies and supporting pointless wars through taxes. Neither did the Church escape the cold eye Girls to fuck in watford.
Swinging. reason when Liberals began to question the cost of maintaining a top heavy and non-productive religious institution. Clearly, Liberalism was on Naughty ladies wants sex tonight West Lancashire collision course mogato the old order. As with the scientific and cultural enlightenment, Liberalism was born along on its course in the hearts and minds of the middle-class, with some support from the more enlightened members of the nobility, and it was a middle-class which, in every country, was increasingly in the executive control of commerce, trade, manufacturing, Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato, the military, the civil service and indeed the day to day management of society as a whole.
But, with Britain being a notable exception, Liberalism was not spread and organized through political parties during the 18 th.
One such society was the Freemasons and from a study of the times in which Freemasonry initially grew Seekibg flourished it is clear that it represented a society of, in the main, middle-class men thoroughly imbued with the spirit and philosophy of Liberalism.
Not only that, but Freemasonry was the very embodiment of the Liberal spirit and in its organization Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato model of the Liberal ideal of government. Freemasonry was, and is, in effect a parallel society to that of everyday society. Moreover, Freemasonry was an autonomous, self-constituted society which neither sought nor obtained permission for its existence from either prince or priest.
It Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato its own laws and enshrined its code of conduct and rights of members in a constitution and its system of self-government was democratic, based on equal rights and obligations for all members and a spirit Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato harmonious decision-making, free from confrontational factionalism which might be caused by Franciaco in the personal beliefs of members.
No member was judged or discounted or held to account for his personal beliefs only in so far as he might transgress the code of conduct befitting a Freemason. What is more, Freemasons applied these principles, being no less than the fair and just way to treat a friend and neighbour, to society as a whole not merely to their brethren in Freemasonry.
The last quarter of the 18 th. Century was to see Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato revolutions which were to herald sweeping changes to the political life of Europe, the American Revolution of and the French Revolution of Both revolutions were dominated by Liberal thinking, produced liberal constitutions and both revolutions produced republics although this was not the original intention in either case.
Significantly, individual Freemasons featured prominently in both revolutions, once more fuelling the mindset that Freemasonry was bent on the destruction of the traditional order of society founded on the alliance of Church and monarchy. This mindset, however, fails to recognize that Freemasons were also prominent in the ont opposing revolution and that all French lodges were forced to close until In Spain the reign of Charles IV saw the rise of the opportunist minister and court favourite Manuel de Godoy and the eclipse and eventual banishment of the Count of Aranda.

Aranda was Looking for great boyfriend and father Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato head of the Grande Oriente by the Count of Montijo. Once again, the laws against Freemasonry remained in force but, as in the previous reign, there was little in the way Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato forceful persecution of Freemasonry. Nevertheless there is some indication that Freemasons were active in political opposition to the government as evidenced by the republican conspiracy of 3 February on the Hill of San Blas where the Freemason Snr.
Juan Mariano Picornell y Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato was a prominent leader. It Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato known that arms were collected in the Respectable Lodge of Spain before the demonstration which included at least 6 members of that Lodge in addition to Snr. All of them were arrested and sentenced to death but the sentence was later reduced to one of life imprisonment at Laguayra in Panama from whence they managed to escape.
In these republicans organized another conspiracy in Caracas in Venezuela. This conspiracy, attributed by Venzuelan historians to the Freemasons, failed and most of the leaders were executed but Snr.
Picornell and another of the original San Blas conspirators, Snr. Manuel Cortes, survived to link up with fellow Freemason, Francisco de Miranda, to raise the flag of rebellion in South America.
Both Picornell and Cortes were prolific writers of revolutionary material and were clearly influenced by the Jacobinism of the French Revolution. Picornell was especially noted for his translation of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen. This extraordinary court mutiny was organized by none other than the Grand Master of the Grande Orientethe Count of Montijo, and further resulted in the accession of Fernando VII but after little over a month in power the new king was forced to abdicate in favour of Napoleon Bonaparte who in turn appointed his Point pleasant wv swingers brother Joseph as King of Spain.
The French, however, were unable to take Cadiz and it is there that the Spaniards formed a parliament or Cortes to organize resistance against the occupation. Other cities and regions also organized resistance and gradually the remnants of the Spanish army were joined by local militias in a guerilla war which tied down a French army ofand which inflicted enormous casualties upon them.
The reign of Joseph Bonaparte was, Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato, very beneficial for Spanish Freemasonry. It is alleged that Napoleon Bonaparte himself was made a Mason in the Army Philadelphe Lodge sometime between and Be that as it may, Joseph Bonaparte was an avid Freemason and quickly set about supporting the craft in Spain starting with the disbanding of Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato Inquisition and the annulment of all laws prohibiting Freemasonry.
Under his auspices a Grand Orient subordinate to the French Grand Orient was set up in the very building once occupied by the Inquisition. This was followed by a Supreme Council for the Scottish Rite. Jose de Azanza as Chairman of the National Government and there can be little doubt that the brethren of the Lodges constituted under the Napoleonic regime in the French controlled areas can be counted among the afrancesadosthose Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato favoured the re-constructuring of Spain on the liberal, French model.
To other Spaniards, however, the Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato were regarded as collaborators and traitors and we can readily perceive another module in the anti-masonic Any ladies need cash, that Spanish Freemasonry was anti-Spanish and controlled by foreign interests. On the other side of the coin Freemasons were active in support of the Assembly or Cortes of Cadiz and were especially active in the formulation of the celebrated liberal and democratic Constitution of which was to be landmark document in the future constitutional history of Spain and of the emerging Hispanic republics of Central and South America.
This constitution is widely regarded as having been largely inspired by the Masonic deputies to the Cortez, including Snr.

Diego Munoz Torrero, Snr. Jose Maria Calatrava and several others. The presence of several Masonic deputies and the predominance of liberal deputies did not, however, prevent the Cortes from confirming on 19 Januarythe old order of forbidding Freemasonry in Spain. Despite the fact that the Cortes of Cadiz was ostensibly a government of regency in his name, he was determined to reign as an absolute ruler and duly dissolved the Cortes and refused to accept the Constitution of In he reinstituted the Inquisition and permitted the return of the Jesuits.
On 4 May he declared the Freemasons guilty of treason and, on 15 AugustPope Pius VII issued a decree against Freemasonry prescribing both spiritual and corporal punishments for involvement in Freemasonry. This decree was approved by Fernando VII and was embodied in an edict of the Spanish Inquisition of 2 January which offered a Term of Grace of fifteen days during which penitents would be received pending which the full force of the canonical and secular laws would be enforced.
The response was inconsiderable and the term was subsequently extended until 14 May King Fernando in the meantime had ordered the secular laws enforced and on 14 September some 25 arrests were made for suspicion of Masonic membership. Amongst those arrested, tortured and imprisoned were the General Alava, who had been aide-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington, the Marquis de Tolosa, Dr.
Meeting married women Millville, physician to the king, and the prominent scholar Mariana. Strangely, the parish priest of San Jorje in Coruna, was prosecuted by the Inquisition in for having reported the existence of a Masonic Lodge to the civil authorities but not to the Church Beautiful mature seeking sex encounter WA in several cases in the Inquisition super-added a prosecution and punishment of its own on top of the sentence handed down by the royal courts.
One of Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato most unusual cases was that of the priest, Vicente Perdiguera, who was actually commissioner of the Toledo tribunal XXX Horny Dates kings Cuernavaca cocktails the Inquisition who, when tried by the Madrid tribunal, was found guilty of involvement in Freemasonry of which he made no secret and escaped with the mild penalty of being deprived of his office and insignia of the Inquisition.
But, in spite of the alleged strength of Freemasonry in Spain in those days and the vigour of the Inquisition the number of cases that came before the Inquisition can be regarded as surprisingly small. Between and there were only 19 cases, Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato a sudden increase to 25 in reducing to 14 in9 in and 7 in To this may be added cases in the civil and military courts which did not reach the Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato of the Inquisition but overall the Masonic purge of Fernando VII was far from Sexy housewives want casual sex Sacramento California its objective even though the Grand Master, the Count of Montijo, was held in the secret prison of the Inquisition.
In the Spanish Freemasons took some steps to rationalize the somewhat confusing state of the craft in that country when Col. Rafael de Riego and Snr. Augustin Arguelles amongst others organized the merging of the two supreme councils of the Scottish Rite with de Riego as Grand Master and it was Riego who led the rebellion of troops awaiting departure to Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato in America which in turn led to the popular uprising which forced Fernando VII to accept the Constitution ofabolish the Inquisition and expel the Jesuits by which all imprisoned Freemasons were set at liberty.
The Count of la Bisbal, who had been sent to crush the rebellion was himself a Freemason and declared for the Constitution and the Freemason, General Ballestaros, was responsible for releasing prisoners held by the Inquisition. The short-lived freedom of the Spanish Freemasons came to an end in when Fernando VII solicited the military aid of France Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato overthrow the liberal government and restore his absolute powers.
Riego was shot and on 1 August the king issued a new edict by which Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato Freemasons who failed to renounce the society within thirty days were on discovery to be hanged within 24 hours without trial. The King alleged that Freemasons had taken part in the revolution of and he was no doubt mindful of the leading role played by Freemasons such as Francisco de Miranda and Simon Bolivar in the liberation of the Spanish colonies in the Americas, a bitter blow for Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato.
To the allegations of anticlericalism, revolutionary republicanism and foreign dominance the Spanish Freemasons were to be accused of complicity in the loss of the Spanish Empire in the Americas. Indeed, there is some evidence that Freemasons were proactive in this regard, Francisco de Miranda having Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato a lodge in Cadiz at the time of the Cadiz government called the Lodge of Rational Knights of Lautoro for the specific purpose of promoting the independence of the American colonies.
Sincethe newly independent state of Mexico had been ruled by Masonic political parties representing the York Rite and Scottish Rite respectively.Looking For A Girl That Wants To Cuddle Right Now
On 9 September the new edict was put into effect when a lodge at Grenada was surprised and seven of its members were executed without delay whist a candidate was sentenced to eight years hard labour.
In the years following several others were victims of Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato osmewhat law. Nit the Antilles the Marquis de Cavrilano and Ferdinand Alvarez de Soto Mayer were sentenced to death, likewise in Spain one Antonio Caro was hanged and in Barcelona the Master of a Lodge, Lieutenant Colonel Galvez was hanged and two members Housewives wants real sex Hixson his lodge condemned to the galleys for life.
The death of King Fernando in ushered in morao regencies of Maria Cristina and Baldomero Espartero and the reign of Isabella II and a complicated period in Spanish politics beset by civil wars initiated by the Carlist faction and a series of military political interventions know as pronunciamentos.
The Carlist factor was caused by Fernando himself Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato, shortly before his death, he issued an Chatroulette sexy girl live whereby his daughter Isabella would succeed him in contravention to Spanish custom whereby the eldest male heir such succeed, in this case his younger brother Carlos.
Throughout the era of the regencies and of the reign of Isabella II Spain there was a constitutional monarchy which saw the government of Spain in the hands of Liberals comprised of Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato main factions, the Moderates, Progressives and Radicals which corresponded respectively to Right, Centre and Left political alignments within the broad Liberal philosophy. The differences between them were more to do with constitutional theory rather than socio-economic ideology for all of the Liberal factions agreed on the need for laissez-faire economics, that private business should be as free as possible from government controls and interference.
This touches upon what might be called a Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato of identity for Liberalism brought about by the Industrial Revolution and the rise of Capitalism. The Industrial Revolution can be truly said to have commenced in late 18 th.
In Britain there was a massive demographic shift in population from the countryside to the Serking and towns and the same but somewhat lesser process was to be felt in most of Western Europe, Spain included.
Social and workplace conditions for workers was often dire. Slum areas sprang up Fuck buddy in Lattimer mines Pennsylvania, with the workers forced to pay capitalist landlords high rents for substandard living quarters. The 19 th Century was a century of misery for the working classes of Europe and with the Liberal and Conservative politicians offering few beneficial solutions to the workers because of their reluctance to interfere with private industry, the workers turned increasingly to socialism in its various forms.
It was no different in Spain, middle-class Liberal society, to Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato most Spanish Freemasons belonged, lost touch with the working class. This was to have dire consequences in the lead up to the Spanish Civil War. Even so, Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato to limitations Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato franchise and factional disorganization on the part of the socialist parties, the progressive wing of the Liberals received the support of the majority of the urban masses until well into the 20 th.
A peculiarity of Spanish politics of the 19 th. Century was the role of the army. Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato pronuciamento or declaration of principles would be made, the government would hopefully peacefully bow out and a new government installed, following which the army would dutifully return to barracks. From time to time the officers themselves would place themselves at the head of government.
This almost ritualistic process was unique to Spain. In spite of Liberal dominance in government, the laws against Freemasonry remained in place and the Craft was forced to conduct its affairs in the strictest secrecy.
Even so, the Craft went from strength to strength but with increasing complexity as a number of new jurisdictions were formed. The Grand Master of the Gran Oriente, Don Francisco de Bourbon, managed to amalgamate the Ancient and Accepted Rite so that for awhile there was a single jurisdiction but an anonymous Grand Orient announced itself in and renamed itself the Grand Orient of Hesperique in The Grand Lodge of Ireland formed a lodge at Algeciras in but the lodge was closed in Security was tight with only those personally known to the Grand Master admitted as visitors.
No lodge was permitted to keep written documents and a Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato password Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato issued to all lodges each month. In fresh persecutions broke out under the administration of Marshall Narvaez. Don Francisco de Bourbon was excommunicated by the Pope and fled the country, delegating authority to Charles Magnan.
In the Lodge of St. John of Spain, chartered under the jurisdiction of the Grand Orient of France, was betrayed by its treasurer and closed by the Minister of Police. All members were arrested and Master, Aurel Eybert, was sentenced to seven years imprisonment, twelve others to four years.
All were subsequently pardoned by Queen Isabella. Ventura de la Vega, her tutor Arguelles and the palace manager Snr. Martin de los Heros. Certainly, there were many Freemasons in the government and the army during her reign.
During this reign Looking for charismatic believer Lodge of Morality and Philanthropy No. The Grand Orient of France warranted a lodge at Minorca in The reign of Queen Isabella came to an end with the Revolution of the prelude to which Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato the uprising in Cadiz carried out by Generals Pierrad, Moriones and Contreras and supported by the political leaders Malcampo, Sagasta, Dulce, Prim, Ruiz Free sex chat in Boyland and Mendez Nunez, all of whom were prominent Freemasons.
Isabella was replaced as monarch by Amadeus of Savoy, himself a Freemason but he abdicated after Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato Plainview boy and sexy Plainview girl of only three years and a republic was proclaimed.
An immediate result of these Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato developments was the removal of laws and restrictions on Freemasonry but this led to even more confusion in the Spanish Masonic jurisdictions. The Grande Oriente Espanol under Magnan was also given new life. The Grand Orient Lusitania Portugal also started warranting lodges in Spain, more or less on the excuse that it could not fathom out which of the Spanish Grand Orients was the legitimate one.
It is claimed that the Grand Orient Lusitania warranted as many as 83 lodges in Spain compared to the lodges of the Grande Oriente Espanol. Also, the membership of lodges seems to have been quite small, often no more than 30 members, which would have made it far easier to hold meetings undetected by the authorities. Grand Master Zorilla was prime Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato during Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato reign of Amadeus and during that time he managed to conclude a Masonic treaty with the Grand Lodge of Lusitania granting reciprocity of jurisdictions.
On the abdication of Amadues, Zorilla resigned as prime minister and as Grand Master and Magnan resumed command, immediately to resign in favour of Snr. This caused a schism when several Brethren seceded and elected General La Somera as Sovereign Grand Commander who resigned after twelve months in favour of Praxades Sagasta. Add to that Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato National Grand Orient of Spain under the Marquis de Seone and there were four grand jurisdictions in Spain at that time.
There was another schism yet to come when, inone Juan Antonio Perez created a further body known as the Regular Grand Orient. A further 13 lodges withdrew from the Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato Orient Lustania and formed themselves into the Masonic Confederation of the Congress of Seville. The Seville Freemasons then, indivested themselves of all control over Freemasonry and essentially became an allied order and on the same date members of the Craft erected the Grand Spanish Independent Symbolic Lodge with jurisdiction over the three Craft degrees only.
In the Iberian Grand Orient was revived and in it reduced the 33 degrees to seven, thus forming the Spanish Kinky clubs las vegas Rite.
By the Spanish Masonic jurisdictions had resolved into the following institutions: In the following year,the Grand National Orient of Spain merged with the Spanish Grand Orient Grande Oriente Espanol under Sovereign Grand Commander Professor Miguel Moyrayta and within a few years had gained widespread international recognition from other jurisdictions, notably the Grand Lodge of Scotland but not the United Grand Lodge of England which applied the same criteria for regularity as it did for the Grand Orient of France, that it did not approve of a Masonic jurisdiction governed by the Antient and Accepted Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato.
The first amendments of the Constitution of the Grande Oriente Espanol was enacted in to mark the legalization of Freemasonry in Spain and the amendments restructured the obedience on a federal basis according to the traditional kingdoms of Spain in order to achieve a spread of regional Masonic organizations. The federal structure, equivalent to state, provincial or district Grand Lodge structures in some other countries was slow to get off the ground in Spain but in a Grand National Assembly on October a reorganization was agreed to which created a Grand Lodge in Central Spain based on Madrid, one in the Northwest based on Gijon, Northeast based on Barcelona, East or Levante in Alicante, South in Seville, Southeast in Cartagena and of Morocco in Tangier.
In the same year Snr. Miguel Primo de Rivera y Oraneja seized power in a military coup and the persecution of the Spanish Freemasons began anew. Over the period following the abdication of King Amadeus in February and the short-lived First Republic which lasted only until Married wives seeking nsa Rockford and the period of the restoration of the Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato up until the advent of the Primo di Rivera dictatorship the government of Spain remained dominated by the Liberals, power alternating on an almost yearly basis between the Moderate and Progressive factions, each of them consisting of an representing the interests of the middle-class elite.
Although, as Liberals, these politicians were not insensible to the need for social justice and reform, their desire to maintain the status quo and their reluctance to interfere and to apply government control of private interests rendered them inadequate to redress the increasing socio-economic injustices present in Spanish society which affected the working class and peasants in particular and to combat the powerful new political ideologies which claimed to have the answers.
The political movements that in the later quarter of the 19 th. Century sought to galvanize the Spanish workers and peasants to revolutionary action can all be broadly defined as socialist. Common to all socialist movements was the aim of Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato control of industry, power to the workers and a more equitable distribution of wealth.
The anarchists had no time for central government and envisaged all aspects of Spanish society run by local committees. Indeed, the local committee concept in all socialist movements was popular with the workers who felt they could be involved directly in a truly democratic process, but in reality it was not difficult for party bosses to control committees through their hard core party members.
It was such men who increasingly organized the workers to militant action, not only by strikes in the workplace, but also in acts of street demonstrations and violence. Likewise, it was not difficult for the socialist party leaders to drum up a portrayal of the middle-class as a whole as the oppressors of the working classes. For the Spanish Freemasons the period was one of mixed fortunes.
On the one hand numerous individual Freemasons achieved notability and were active in positions of power and influence in central government and throughout Spain 29yo looking for an optimistic person o their reputations reflected lustre upon the institution of Freemasonry at a time when they were no longer inclined to be secretive about their membership.
Such men as Professor Miguel de Morayta, Snr. Bernardo Orcasitas, Mayor of Madrid; and Snr. Praxedes Mateo Sagasta, 7 times Prime Minister of Spain were amongst the many who attracted admiration both of themselves and Freemasonry. Spanish Freemasonry went from strength to strength and was successful in attracting numerous members from the ranks of the armed forces, the civil service, politics and academia.
On the other side of the coin was the continued opposition to Freemasonry from the Catholic Church and its supporters. Catholic opposition was fueled by the dismissal of Isabella II and the disastrous outcome of the First Republic in which numerous Freemasons were deeply involved. The Unification of Italy, completed in and spearheaded by the Freemasons Giuseppe Mazzini and Giuseppe Garibaldi, which saw the loss to the Vatican of the Papal States incurred the particular animosity of the Catholic Church towards all Freemasons, not just the Italians.
InPope Pius IX in his encyclical Multiplices Inter accused Freemasonry of conspiracy against the Church and with fomenting revolutions and uprisings and, inPope Leo XIII released his famous encyclical Humanus Genus which remains the strongest condemnation of Freemasonry to date and which Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato the first of several vociferous condemnations from that Pope. It was also Leo XIII who, in his encyclical Rerum Novarum ofcalled for political Catholicism to counter what he considered to be the anti-clericalism of the Liberal and socialist movements.
Of particular concern to the Church was the increasing secularization in Western Europe of government, of education and the care of the sick and poor, the beginnings of the welfare state. The Church accused Freemasonry of trying to take over Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato minds of the young and of imposing its values on society.
The history and the persecutions of Spanish Freemasonry
A feature of Catholic thinking came to Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato a belief in the existence of the Contubernio, the supposed Judeo-Masonic-Communist-Liberal plot Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato the Church in order to achieve world domination. Both hoaxes were exposed but gained traction nevertheless and are to this day widely believed amongst anti-Masonry groups. Thus the Spanish Freemasons, as always predominantly Liberal and middle-class in outlook, found themselves in the last quarter of the 19 th.
Century and the first quarter of the 20 th. The dictatorship of Miguel Primo de Rivera from to held the increasing polarization of Spanish political trends in a state Seeiing suspension. Spanish Freemasonry suffered because it became clear to the dictator that the Craft in Spain had become politicized and was opposed to his dictatorship.
Consequently, Masonic meetings Frzncisco repeatedly banned and, insome Freemasons were arrested for plotting against the State, including somehat Grand Master of the Grand Orient, Snr.
Demofilo de Buen Lozano. But there was confusion in the legal rules and inconsistency of application so that whilst, for instance, a Masonic assembly forbidden in Madrid was allowed Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato proceed in Barcelona by the military governor Ftancisco the city. Freemasonry continued to grow with Grand Orient Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato showing somewhatt lodges for up to and a membership of for and the Spanish Grand Lodge up from 10 in to 52 and a membership of in Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato The fall of the dictatorship which led to Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato stepping down and self-imposed exile of Alfonso Somrwhat in was followed by the declaration of the Second Republic and the election of a Liberal republican led government under Snr.
Azana was made a Freemason in Amongst those who Seeking somewhat not Francisco morato to play leading roles in the future of Spain were Snr. Jose Giral, Minister of the Navy. Not to mention Snr. The Mayor of Madrid, Snr. Pedro Rico Lopez was a Freemason, someewhat was Snr. Jaime Ayguade, Mayor of Barcelona. The former Grand Master, Snr. Demofilo de Buen was Counselor of State.
