Shiloh Grand Consistory 444

  Scottish Rite of Freemasonry 




Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite goes so deeply into the past for much of its symbolism and philosophy that its origins are lost. The Scottish Rite Lodge of Perfection confers the degrees from the 4° through the 14°; the Chapter of Rose Croix confers the degrees 15° through 18°; the Council of Kadosh confers the 19° through the 30°, and the Consistory completes the series by conferring the 31° and 32°. The 33° is controlled by the Supreme Council. It may not be requested, directly, and if asked for, it shall be refused. Any Master Mason in good standing in a Blue Lodge recognized by the Grand Lodge  may seek the Scottish Rite Degrees.
