The York Rite, or more correctly, the American Rite, is based on the early remnants of Craft Masonry that were practiced in the early 's.

Freemasonry, the teachings and practices of the secret fraternal order of Free and Accepted Masons, the largest worldwide secret society.

Spread by the advance of the British Empire, Freemasonry remains most popular in the British Isles and in other countries originally within the empire.

The Higher Degrees' Handbook PREFACE In attempting to give an outline sketch of the various degrees in Freemasonry in a book of this description, I am faced by many difficulties, not the least of which is how to write in an interesting way about degrees, which many of my readers have not taken, without giving away more than is permissible.

The York Rite in Freemasonry actually refers to three cooperative groups that confer a total of ten degrees in the United States. There are four Royal Arch degrees, three Cryptic Mason degrees, and three Chivalric orders.

You must already be a Master Mason before you can join the York Rite. The York Rite offers additional [ ]. In the end a 'nonsense' {there is really no other word for it) compromise was created in Article II of the Act of Union, which said that Freemasonry 'consists of three degrees and no more, viz., those of the Entered Apprentice, the Fellow Craft, and the Master Mason.

In England and Wales, after the degrees of craft freemasonry, there are a large number of separately administered degrees and orders open only to craft freemasons. Under the English Constitution, the Holy Royal Arch is the only degree formally recognised by the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) beyond the three degrees of craft freemasonry.

This page is about a Masonic organization. For the medieval Knights Templar, see Knights also Knights Templar and popular culture. The Knights Templar, full name The United Religious, Military and Masonic Orders of the Temple and of St John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta, is a fraternal order affiliated with the initial degrees conferred in a regular.

In my book The Genesis of Freemasonry I put forward how Dr Jean Theophilus Desaguliers was responsible for creating the third degree sometime in the s. Before this, there were two ‘parts’ being performed; the Entered Apprentice and the Fellow Craft. The new three degree style ritual soon spread.

The Chivalric degrees bring to an end the instruction of Masonry, and rehearse the virtues, vows, and tenets of the Order.

These form the Templar degrees of the A.A.S.R. "The accomplishment of these degrees brings us to the completion of the Third Temple; and the Royal Secret is solved, as to whether we have made this world a Temple fit for.

The reason I would highlight this particular film is this is on the rare occasion that a specific Masonic term is used, namely ‘Cryptic Freemasons’ and ‘Cryptic Freemasonry.’ There is a common misconception that Freemasonry consists of 33 degrees, and the 33rd degree is reserved for the secret hierarchy of the Craft.

This simply isn’t. The York Rite is an appendant body is made up of three different basic groups: Royal Arch Masons, Cryptic Rite Masons, and Knights Templar. The York Rite, which expanded greatly after the American Civil War developed a more military style while m.

Now I know it may be politically incorrect to say that there is anything higher than the Master Mason degree, but in fact High Degrees is the term that has been used for centuries to define the various degrees and ceremonies and rites that exist after the.

The York Rite (sometimes referred to as the American System of Freemasonry has 3 seperate bodies: Royal Arch Masonry, which has 4 degrees; Cryptic Masonry, which has 2 degrees; Chivalric Masonry, which has 3 orders. There are many other appendant bodies of Freemasonry such as the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (Shriners.

The degrees of the Council of Kadosh are chivalric and philosophical, but also contain mystical material. The word "Kadosh" is a Hebrew word meaning "Holy". The complexity of these degrees cannot be overstated and is exemplified by the number of pages attributed to them in Morals and Dogma.
