The 33rd is the highest degree in the Scottish Rite. The Masonic Knights Templar is a part of the York Rite. The Commandery of Knights Templar is charged with conferring the following orders: Order of Red Cross, Order of Malta, and Order of the Temple.

If, per chance, my suspicion(s) of the "York Rite" and "Scottish Rite" are true...
That would mean (To Me) that:

1) The Freemason(s) of the "Scottish Rite" are - "Fortress Defenders"...
2) The Freemason(s) of the "York Rite" are - "Persuers and Captivators of those who insist on seizing the Fortress"... (once they realize they can not and flee)


Is this a correct definiton???

AND! And If I Am "Pinocchio", Do I Get "Rock" or "Stone" for a chip "Wood" ???
Tis costly you know...

33rd degree is not the highest observed Masonic level.

After one has gone through a blue lodge to York right or Scottish rite they can then pursue the Knights Templar, the Shriners, and Malta.


There are a huge number of side orders that exist. Most of them don't have a degree number attached to them. You can go to Florida or south Georgia and get the chitlin degree once a year I think. But for the sake of argument, the highest degree number in regular masonry is 33. (the now clandestine rite of Memphis Misriam goes up to 99)

You only need to be a Master Mason to become a Shriner.

that requirement changed a few years ago. Before, you had to be a 32nd degree Scottish rite mason in order to join the shrine.

(I know AM knows this, but it's posted for others)

You only have to be a master mason in good standing in your Blue Lodge. That's it.

Why the heck would a mason want to join the Shrine?


Those guys dress funny, and have tiny cars.

If you want to know the reason for the sacredness and uniqueness of the number 33 - far more profound than any of the silly numerologies discussed in previous pages - see here. (advice: you will need to study much of the material in this website in order to grasp the amazing significance of what is proved at this link).
