Recently I experienced my first co-called “French Ritual”. As I understand it, this Ritual goes back to the Ritual originally written by Georges Martin when he started with Le Droit Humain. The Ritual is ‘atheistic’, all reference to the GAOTU are skipped. The triangle above the seat of the W:.M:. was empty and there was no book whatsoever on the altar. For the rest, the Ritual was quite like what I am used to, with of course the expected little difference between one lodge and another.
