Le Droit Humain
has a Scandinavian federation with “6 lodges altogether – 3 in Denmark, 2 in Norway, and 1 in Sweden”. LDH is active in Norway since 1912 and in Sweden since 1918.

That would be København (Odin), Århus (Hermes) and Aalborg (Parsival) in Denmark. Stavanger (Isis) in Norway and I have not been able to find where the Swedish lodge is located. Perhaps it helps when you speak the language. Find the website here.

The Swedish term to look for appears to be “Samfrimureri” (‘together Freemasonry’?)

Sweden also has two lodges (Norrköping and Södertälje) of the Gran Oriente Latinoamericano.

Rite of Memphis-Misraïm is a combination of the Rite of Misraïm that was founded by Cagliostro in 1738 and the Rite of Memphis that was founded by Jacques Etienne Marconis de Nègre in 1838. In 1889 General Garibaldi combined the two the Rite of Memphis-Misraïm.

Nowadays there is an international organisation working in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Spain, France, Martinique, Mauritius, New Caledonia, Scandinavia, Switzerland, Uruguay, USA, England, Venezuela.
There are other organsations with similar names.

The website does not say that members have to be master Masons in another lodge, so it does not appear to be a system of side/higher degrees. On the other hand, the website does not say anything about the “blue” grades of Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason, so I am not 100% sure.
What the website also does not state specifically, is that Memphis-Misraïm lodges are mixed. It does say however under “conditions for admission” that: “You must have been questioned by several Brothers or sisters” (my emphasis). Cagliostro wanted to admit women, so it sounds like this tradition is still followed.


The Women’s Grand Lodge of Belgium has two lodges in Denmark, Lilium (Odense) and Freja (Roskilde).
