Heredom is the flagship publication of the Society and has been delivered annually to members since 1992. This is the preeminent publication of scholarly Masonic research, recognized and highly anticipated by Masonic scholars worldwide. It is a peerless collection of the finest and most thought-provoking essays on contemporary and historical Freemasonry, emphasizing the Scottish Rite. This annual hardback volume is delivered directly to members of the Society as a benefit of membership. Each volume contains multiple, in-depth manuscripts of Masonic research, reviewed by the SRRS editorial board.

If you are a writer and have a manuscript that you would like to be considered for publication in Heredom, please contact the editor using the information found on the “Contact Us” page.  All manuscripts must be submitted electronically and must follow the guidelines of the “Heredom Style Guide.”
