The Consistory Degrees ( 19° – 32° )

The Consistory Degrees differ from the preceding degrees. They attempt to illustrate the creation of the ideal balance between the spiritual and the temporal. The meetings of members of the 32nd Degree, or Sublime Princes of the Royal Secret in the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, are called Consistories.

The elective officers, according to the ritual of the Northern Jurisdiction of the United States, include a Commander-in-Chief, Lieutenant-Commanders, Chancellor, Minister of State, Almoner, Registrar, and Treasurer. In the Southern Jurisdiction, it differs slightly. They call the second and third officers Seneschal, Preceptor.

A Consistory in the Northern Jurisdiction confers the Degrees from the 19th to 32nd inclusive. The Consistories in the Southern Jurisdiction confers the Degrees from the 31st and 32nd Degrees.
