Here is and interesting little tidbit for you. Any 3rd degree master mason can petition to join the degrees of the Scottish Right. Once you are in, the degrees seldom come in order. so a 32nd degree may only have a couple other degrees under his belt. It sorta depends on what degree is being performed at the time.

I had the impression that some of the 'rites' were passed on orally, without a written 'script' as it were.......I got this impression from something my Dad said about a certain fellow who wanted to join, but would have a problem memorizing all that he would need to.
Perhaps he only meant that some written text would need to be memorized, but it was in the context of Dad having to help this fellow by repeating lines to him, for him to memorize. ( Of course, it could have been that the other guy just had never learned to read.)
