Frédéric Desmons


French Calvinist priest and freemason, who persuaded the Grand Orient de France in a vote to remove the term of the Great Architect of the Universe from their Constitution. This precipitated a split with the United Grand Lodge of England and the birth of liberal or Latin Freemasonry.

He studied in Nîmes and then went on to study theology in Geneva, the stronghold of Calvinism.

He died on 4 January 1910 in Paris.
