Grand Lodge

A Masonic Grand Lodge is the governing body that supervises and governs the individual Lodges of Freemasons in any particular geographical area or jurisdiction, (usually corresponding to a national boundary or other major political unit). Some are large, with thousands of members divided into hundreds of subordinate Lodges. Others jurisdictions are smaller, with three or four subordinate Lodges. Sometimes there will be only one Grand Lodge in a given area. More often, however, there will be several competing Grand Lodges claiming the same jurisdictional area, or claiming overlapping areas. This fact leads to debates over legitimacy: Not all Grand Lodges recognize each other as being legitimate.
