How can I obtain copies of the images on the magic lantern slides for the White Shrine of Jerusalem? I have been trying to update our Shrine's ceremonial slides but have not been able to locate many of the images.


Hi Tim.

I agree - using a Masoniscope to project images for the lectures would be pretty cool. I would not, however, recommend trying to hook it up to the battery of any of the brethren's cars...

Be sure to let us know if you get your hands on a Masoniscope!

I have never heard of a Masoniscope before. It would be interesting to get a hold of one of these and show up at the Masonic lodge to make a presentation to the brethren.



Thanks for reminding us about the lantern slides in our own collections. I was aware of them, and should've thought to mention them, as they are really wonderful!

Loved learning about Masoniscope! I wanted to add that, along with projectors, the National Heritage Museum holds a few hundred magic lantern slides in its collection. Topics presented in the slides include Masonic lectures for blue lodge and beyond, lectures for Knights Templar, Eastern Star, Rebekahs and the Knights of Malta. We also have shows of fairy tales, peasant life in Germany and the Spanish American War.
