About Cryptic Masons

Here we take another step in our Masonic education and progress to the Council of Royal and Select Masters - known as Cryptic Masonry or the Purple Lodge. The council degrees are largely and elaboration and explanation of the Royal Arch Degree and to a lesser extent, the Master Mason degree. The degrees of the council of Royal and Select Masters are necessary to fully complete your education Ancient Craft Masonry.

The degrees of our Masonic system are not chronologically arranged and in the degrees of Royal and Select Master, which many believe, are the most beautiful and impressive of all, you learn of additional incidents in the building of the first temple. During these degrees you represent the Master Builder, Hiram Abif, and learn why the work was lost and the secret of it preservation and recovery.
