Distinguished Honors


Inspector General , Active or Honorary, 33°

        The second Honor is the Thirty-third Degree, But we must leave the Court of Honor to discuss it. The 33rd Degree, unlike the K: .C:: .C:: .H: . is a degree Therefore the 33rd Degree is conferred. (it can also be said that you were Coroneted, crowned, a 33° Scottish Rite Mason)

      All such are divided into two categories-- Honoraries and Actives. Actives are members of the Supreme Council. The great majority of 33° Masons you will meet are Honoraries and have been given the 33° Honorary in recognitian of service to the Scottish Rite, Masonry in general or for civic service. It cannot be applied for.

       Before each Biennial Session, each SGIG and Deputy submits nominations of men in his Orient who must have been K: .C:: .C:: .H: . for 46 months before he can be elected to receive the 33°. The approval by the Supreme Council must be without a dissenting vote.
