Societas Rosicruciana In Anglia (Rosicrucian Society of Freemasons)
The Society is organised in nine grades, each having its appropriate ritual. In addition to working the ceremonies, members are encouraged to read original papers or extracts from works of others and to join in the discussions which arise. Its members should be prepared, not only to take part in its ceremonies, but to listen and learn and, by study and giving to others the results of that study, to take an active part in working out the great problems of life and understanding the wisdom, art and literature of the Ancient World.
Thus the object of the society is to bring together Freemasons of philosophic outlook in order that they may afford aid and encouragement to each other in the pursuit of their own studies in the field of philosophy and scholarship in the widest sense. Ultimately, its object is to bring its members a few steps nearer to wisdom and an understanding of the true nature of reality.
Admission to the society is limited to Master Masons who are subscribing members of a Lodge under the Grand Lodge of England or a jurisdiction in amity with Grand Lodge and who accept and believe in the fundamental principles of the Trinitarian Christian faith.
