Share this video Rods or wands are an indication of power. Their ancestry derives from antiquity. Today we see representations of the Rod in different forms everywhere. The caduceus in medicine, the septor in royalty, the bishops staff in church, the speakers mace the black rod in politics and the english army officers swagger stick. Our masonic world continues this custom with the deacons and stewards rods as well as the marshals baton. Within some lodges the director of ceremonies derives his power and respect from the carrying of his rod. The deacons rods are surmounted by metal emblems, varying from country to country. In America they are The Square and Compass, and in England, they are the dove and olive branch. In sum the rod conveys authority and is found almost everywhere, even orchestras are directed and controlled by the conductors baton.
