The 3rd Degree

In the early 1700s only a few speculative lodges were practicing three degrees. The Trinity College Dublin Manuscript indicated that in 1711 there existed a third degree. In 1725 doctor francis drake of the york lodge declared a third degree was already being worked in york. The first third degree in lodge minutes appears on april 27, 1727 By 1730 a larger number of lodges had adopted the use of the third degree. By 1738 three degrees were officially recognized but not eagerly accepted by all lodges, scottish lodges in particular were openly hostile to the third degree. This left some to continue with the old two degrees only. Today the three degree system is the well established standard.
