About the Scottish Rite

 

In 1732, the first "Ecossais" or Scottish Lodge was established in Bordeaux, France.

The Scottish Rite Overview

The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, commonly known as the Scottish Rite, is one of several Rites of Freemasonry. A Rite is a progressive series of degrees conferred by various Masonic organizations or bodies, each of which operates under the control of its own central authority. In the Scottish Rite the central authority is called a Supreme Council.

 

The Scottish Rite is one of the appendant bodies of Freemasonry that a Master Mason may join for further exposure to the principles of Freemasonry. The Scottish Rite builds upon the ethical teachings and philosophy offered in the craft lodge, or Blue Lodge, through dramatic presentation of the individual degrees. The Scottish Rite consists of the 4°–32° and an honorary 33°, which is awarded for exceptional service.
