Templarist Freemasonry for Men & Women in Norway
Rite Ecossais Rectifié ⚜️ Lodge & Chapter La Sagesse de Marie N° 4
working under the authority of the Summum Supremum Sanctuarium,
Grande Priorado do Regime Escocês Retificado, Brazil
The Rite Ecossais Rectifié (Scottish Rectified Rite), also known as the Order of the Knights Beneficent of the Holy City, is a rite of Templarist Freemasony founded in Lyon in 1778, the inspiration of Jean-Baptiste Willermoz. As well as having an interesting mythology rooted in Scottish Templar and Masonic traditions the RER is a beautiful point of entry to the French neo-Gnostic tradition and a natural complement to Martinism.
It is well known that Freemasonry is a "peculiar system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols" but perhaps less generally known that it also offers a well worn path to spiritual enlightnment. We are delighted to be able to guide candidates of both sexes on this ancient and rewarding masonic journey. A full course of instruction with study resources is provided.
By the kindness of our friends and brethren from the Grand Priory of the Scottish Rectified Rite in Brazil we have received a Charter authorising us to work the Scottish Rectified Rite (RER) of Freemasonry (the Master of the HCOT having received the transmission of the RER lineage at his Martinist initiation in 2015). The Charter and other certificates may be seen below.
The RER is a eight degree system. We commence the work by offering the following degrees to those who are already Master Masons:
4° - Scottish Master & Scottish Master of St Andrew
5° - Esquire or Knight Novice
6° - Chevalier Bienfaisant de la Cité Sainte - Knight Beneficent of the Holy City
These degrees are given in person at Etnedal in Norway, where it is hoped that a Blue (Craft) lodge, offering the first three degrees, will also be opened, just as soon as we have a sufficient number of candidates in Norway.
The 7th and 8th degrees (Professed Knight & Grand Professed Knight) are also available to particularly committed and promising candidates, by invitation.
