THE STRASBURG APPEAL
The Sovereign Masonic Powers gathered in Strasburg on 22 January 1961
1.that it is imperative to restore among all Freemasons the Union Chain broken by regrettable exclusions irreconcilable with the principles of Anderson’s Constitutions of 1723 ;
2.that it is essential to that effect, taking due account all traditions, rites, symbols beliefs, and respecting the absolute freedom of conscience, to join efforts in order to establish the conditions which determine the quality of the Freemason.
that each Lodge and each Obedience ought to be free to decide whether the activities should be placed under the protection of the Great Architect of the Universe, and whether one of the Three Lights should be the Sacred Volume of a revealed religion.
DECIDE AND DECLARE
to establish among themselves fraternal relations and to open the doors of their Temples, without condition of reciprocity, to any male or female Freemason who has received the Light in a just and perfect Lodge on condition that the Masonic specificity of the Lodge or the Obedience permits these visits
to all Freemasons to join the Union Chain based on total freedom of conscience and complete mutual tolerance.
