The 32nd degree, the final degree of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, dramatically teaches us to choose between personal advancement and service to humanity. We learn to look for the good in all and make allowances for others’ shortcomings. Genuine brotherhood requires mutual regard, opinion, esteem, and charity.


The degree represents the victory of the spiritual over the human in man.

The Degrees of the Consistory

The Consistory is responsible for conferring the 19th through the 32nd degrees. These degrees demonstrate the challenges of social and moral conflicts, drawing on lessons from the age of chivalry through modern day.

The term "Consistory" comes from the Latin consistere (“stand firm”), which led to the term consistorium (“assembly place”). Historically, the word consistory has referred to either a council of the advisors of Roman emperors or the papal consistory, a meeting of the Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church. Within Freemasonry, Consistory refers to an assembly of Scottish Rite officers who, under the auspices of the Supreme Council, grant degrees.
