The Degrees

There are four coordinate divisions in the Scottish Rite:

  1. Lodge of Perfection, 4°-14° (presiding officer – Thrice Potent Master)
  2. Council of Princes of Jerusalem, 15°-16° (presiding officer – Sovereign Prince)
  3. Chapter of Rose Croix, 17°-18° (presiding officer – Most Wise Master)
  4. Consistory of Sublime Princes of the Royal Secret, 19°-32° (presiding officer – Commander-in-Chief)

Some Valleys do not have all four divisions. In such cases, their candidates receive Council, Chapter or Consistory work in neighboring Valleys.
