The Freemasonry, the teosofía and the Cultural club of Madrid

Next January 30 the Cultural club celebrates the First Day of Open Doors

It is not necessary to lose this article of Ars Secreta in which the relations are exhibited between the teosofía, the Freemasonry and the Cultural club of Madrid, one of the institutions of any more crossbeam in the world of the culture of the capital of Spain. If for something the Cultural club captivated me from the first time that I trod on the building, it does of that many years, it is for the air of mystery that he impregnates up to the last corner.

The history of the Cultural club of Madrid is tied, almost from his beginnings, to the Freemasonry. The current head office of the Learned House, located in the number 21 of the street of Madrid of the Meadow and inaugurated in 1884, is a work of the architects Enrique Fort and Luis Landecho, and it was provided in his origins with diverse elements that were alluding to the narrow relation between the Cultural club and the Freemasonry. Both the proper building and the institution, I remained clear, are not Masonic in themselves, but many of his out-standing associates – like the president of II Republic Manuel Azaña or the intellectual and esoterista Mario Roso of Moon – yes it were, as many others of his members at present.

And since we are in the Cultural club, it is necessary to say that next January 30 it celebrates the First Day of Open Doors, coinciding with the commemoration of 125 anniversary of the opening of the building:

The Day of Open Doors, organized with the intention of facilitating to all the citizens the knowledge of an emblematic institution in the Spanish cultural life, will offer to the visitor the possibility of being walked on January 30 by the modernist building that today lodges his social head office, it acts of the architects Enrique Fort and Luis Landecho, to contemplate the most valuable style paintings neogriego of Arturo Mélida in the Assembly room and the Room The Hardware store, to cover the Gallery of Portraits of the illustrious men of the XIXth and the XXth, to see the office and the Azaña chair and to marvel with the quiet ambience of his Library rich in funds of the XIXth And the XXth.

Also the visitor will listen, across the visits guided in groups of 30 persons the history and the anecdotes of an Institution, at which illustrious men have presided like: Laureano Figuerola, Segismundo Moret, Gumersindo de Azcárate, A.Alcalá Galiano, To. Cánovas of the Castle, M. de Unamuno, Fernando de los Ríos, Manuel Azaña, etc. having acted like catalysts of the most important political and cultural activity. For the Cultural club there have gone on six Presidents of Government, all our Nobel Prize winners, the political agents of the Second Republic and practically it more renamed of the generation of 98, from that of 14 and from that of 27.

Asímismo all those who decide to approach the Cultural club will be able to contemplate the exhibition “Concerning 1884” in that there will appear a selection of his funds (literary works, documents and images) where there remain reflected the historical and cultural events corresponding to the year 1884. Across a trip for the world of the Literature, the Science and the Arts, as well as of other social events, the sample will give a global image of the Spain of those years. His place, in the exceptional Gallery of Portraits of the Cultural club of Madrid, contextualizará to the personages represented in this one inside one of the epochs most convulsed with the contemporary history that opened the way towards the "Modernity".

If it was small the visitors will be able to contemplate diverse photos of the Quarter of the Letters, fruit of the contest organized by the Merchants' Association of the Quarter of the Letters, with whom the Cultural club of Madrid has signed a collaboration agreement.

This day of Open Doors tries to turn into an annual appointment opened to all the persons from Madrid and interested parties in approaching the Cultural club of Madrid.

So they can spend to themselves for the Cultural club this day to verify for yourself what Javier tells them in his Ars Secreta.

Finally, know also that the group Ateneo de Madrid exists in Facebook.

    It is a wonderful place where I have spent many moments to the heat of the books or of the chats of Agustín García Calvo. The library was decrepit the last time that I raised less than one year ago, with propping-up so that the roof was not sinking. I hope that they should have arranged it for this next event
