Swedenborg, Rite Of
The so-called Rite of Swedenborg, the history of whose foundation has been given in the preceding article, consists of six Degrees:
1. Apprentice. 2. Fellow Craft. 3. Master Neophyte. 4. Illuminated Theosophite. 5. Blue Brother. 6. Red Brother.
It is said to be still practised by some of the Swedish Lodges, but is elsewhere extinct. Reghellini, in his Esprit do Dosme, gives it as consisting of eight Degrees; but he has evidently confounded it with the Rite of Martinism, also a theosophic Rite, and the ritualism of which also partakes of a Swedenborgian character.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
