Ecossais[: Or, Perfect Elect of the Lodge

This ritual is presented in the form of a restored facsimile, a corrected French transcription and an English translation of that used by the 'Parfaite Loge d'Ecosse' of the Elus Parfaits of Bordeaux. It was dated 1750 according to documents in the Sharp collection, and concerns a variation in ten degrees of the 'Ancienne Maitrise.' It is therefore a Solomonic ritual, comprising a long account in the course of which the candidate is informed of the degrees of Apprentice, Fellow-Craft, Master, Secret Master, Perfect Master, Secretary or Master by Curiosity, Provost and Judge, Intendant of the Buildings and master elect of Nine. Its historical importance is of the essence as the Elus parfaits were chronologically the first Ecossais authority of the High Degrees.
