Scottish Rite (Ramsay, freemason who literally invented new degrees in France and invented the Scottish Rite) ◦ Several different rites ◦ Spreading in the European continent: France, Germany, Italy, Holland ◦ Diverse Masonic Traditions • Society of Transition Hybrid ◦ Old Regime ▪ Secretive because of the hidden knowledge ▪ Hierarchical reflected a society based on a social ladder, but changed the reason for that hierarchy. Instead of being based on birthright, it was now based on merit and knowledge. ▪ Ritualistic aspect as old as humanity, way to reproduce something that in theory is going to change your life or make you become something different, however not rational because no link between the ritual and knowledge gained ▪ Internal judicial order Judged by other freemasons and peers, punished in accordance with the laws of freemasons instead of general court ▪ Authorities ▪ Permanent Bonds never stop being a freemason even if you stop attending meetings; these people are in “dream” meaning they can awake at anytime ◦ Modernity ▪ Voluntary association joined because you want too, voluntary action to join ▪ “open” access ▪ Individual doing this as a private person/ reason not because part of a group or born into it ▪ Equality/ Merit ▪ Rational knowledge (Enlightenment) ▪ Constitution an agreement between members of the society rather than an authoritative command coming from one single power
