The Phylaxis Society

The Phylaxis Society is an international organization of Prince Hall Freemasons dedicated to studying the life of Prince Hall and researching the history of Prince Hall Freemasonry. The society was designed to create a bond of union for Masonic writers and to educate about Prince Hall Freemasonry. The Society has become the leader in its field: encouraging Prince Hall Masonic Study and stimulating the writing of accurate and interesting articles for publication. In this manner it fosters the close, human relationship that is the ideal of Freemasonry.

The word Phylaxis is pronounced fil-lak-sis. Phyl is Greek for tribe, clan, race, and is akin to the Greek word ‘phyein’ which means to bring forth – more to be. Phylaxis means to guard and preserve. Symbolically we interpret it as to bring forth more light in Masonry, and to guard the Prince Hall Fraternity against its enemies using the truth to preserve their Masonic heritage.

The society publishes a quarterly journal highlighting the latest and greatest research in Prince Hall Masonry.

Membership is open to all Master Masons who are in good standing in a regularly constituted masonic lodge recognized by the Prince Hall Conference of Grand Masters or recognized by the United Grand Lodge of England

One of the Society's most interesting accomplishments in their Commission on Bogus Masonry highlighting clandestine organizations preying on individuals across the world.
