28th Meeting of Friends of the IISH
This afternoon’s special topic is a lecture by Jaap Kloosterman: 'The History of Secret Societies'. Modern secret societies thrived from the late eighteenth century through the beginning of the twentieth, though they built on older traditions. Several aspects of the phenomenon's history will be discussed, seizing the occasion of a number of 2014 centenaries related to Jesuits, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Mikhail Bakunin and the assassination at Sarajevo.
