Hi lovely Muzzleflash!
Hope you don't mind me butting in, but I wanted to ask a question. It's a bit specific, but maybe someone here will know. I've only read half of
this thread I'll admit, up to the point where Augustus Masonicus stated that the Masons pre-date the Templars, whereas often it is thought that they
came from them.(And then I got a bit excited and wanted to ask).
In another thread, we're wondering about, well, masonry, and I was wondering if there is anything specific about the Scottish Rite, that is not
relevant in other Lodges. (If I'm making a mistake with the terminology, it's through ignorance, not malevolence!)
In other words, did the Scottish Rite form on it's own, independently of other groups because of a historic culture of stone-carving and building, or
did it split from a larger body?
This is a really interesting thread, and I'm impressed with how calmly everyone is managing to answer posts.
Hope you don't mind answering one more,
