Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite

The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (the “Rite”) is an Order providing all Craft Masons with the opportunity to advance well past the Craft degrees; to expand and extend their knowledge, understanding and indeed their lives in the mysteries and sciences of freemasonry generally.

The Higher Degrees

The Degrees from the 19th to the 30th inclusive are conferred in a Sovereign Council. These Degrees expand Masonic knowledge and teaching into the cryptic, philosophical and Knightly aspects of the Order. Thereafter, there are three additional degrees (31st to 33rd inclusive) the latter being the highest Degree of the Order.

The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite for Australia is a unified Order.
