9780226095868: The Brotherhood of Freemason Sisters: Gender, Secrecy, and Fraternity in Italian Masonic Lodges

From its traces in cryptic images on the dollar bill to Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, Freemasonry has long been one of the most romanticized secret societies in the world. But a simple fact escapes most depictions of this elite brotherhood: There are women Freemasons, too. In this groundbreaking ethnography, Lilith Mahmud takes readers inside Masonic lodges in contemporary Italy, where she observes the many ritualistic and fraternal bonds forged among women initiates of this elite and esoteric society. Offering a tantalizing look behind lodge doors, The Brotherhood of Freemason Sisters unveils a complex culture of discretion in which Freemasons simultaneously reveal some truths and hide others. Women - one of Freemasonry's best-kept secrets - are often upper class and highly educated but paradoxically antifeminist, and their self-cultivation through the Masonic path is an effort to embrace the deeply gendered ideals of fraternity. Mahmud unravels this contradiction at the heart of Freemasonry: how it was at once responsible for many of the egalitarian concepts of the Enlightenment and yet has always been, and in Italy still remains, extremely exclusive. The result is not only a thrilling look at an unfamiliar-and surprisingly influential-world, but a reevaluation altogether of the modern values and ideals that we now take for granted.

Descrizione libro University Of Chicago Press, 2014. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Shrouded in secrecy and scorned by the general public, Freemasonry has rarely been studied ethnographically. In this book Italian born anthropologist Lilith Mahmud takes us inside this mysterious world for the first time. Focusing on the experiences of the growing number of upper-class Italian women who are joining Masonic lodges, Mahmud reveals how a Masonic identity is formed in the elaborate 33 step initiation rites and how the notion of fraternity remains the ideal for these non-feminist women. Mahmud's work is an important contribution to the anthropology of elites in that it shows how enclosed elites orient themselves to public spheres shaped by modern liberal ideologies of the nation. The accountabilities around the conspiratorial define the context in which any elite defines itself to itself and the public; the bind between secrecy and developing cultural capital or distinction; being hidden and being envied; being eccentric and being worldly--all of these themes are brilliantly addressed by Mahmud through ethnography.
