A brief history of Hiram Lodge, Prague

5. 1910 - 1914

In the period 1910 - 1914, all ritual meetings of the lodge took place in Bratislava. As the journey was long, 6 to 9 candidates were initiated at the same time.

One open lodge was held in Budapest on 12 November 1912. It was a most impressive and monumental meeting, as there were 9 candidates initiated in the presence of the Grand Master Dr Von Bokay, many Grand Officers and 181 guests.

In this period many Czechs were initiated, who later played a leading role in establishing the first Czech lodge. Among them was Bro Jaroslav Kvapil, who wrote the libretto of Dvorak`s opera Rusalka.
