The 17º, Knight of the East and West, and the 18º, Knight of Rose Croix
of H.R.D.M., known as the Philosophical and Doctorinal Degrees of the
Scottish Rite, are conferred in a Chapter of Rose Croix. They open a new
development of Masonic teaching, and are a distinct departure and
advance from the symbolism of the Symbolic Lodge and of the preceding
Scottish Rite Degrees. These deal with the teachings of Jesus; as Teacher,
Prophet and Martyr. Whatever your religious faith, you are encouraged
to ponder the philosophy and teachings of the Nazarene, especially the
doctrine of fraternal love and service toward all mankind. You will
learn how the three cardinal virtues of Freemasonry, Faith, Hope and
Charity, were so beautifully illustrated in the life of Christ. These lessons
give spiritual underpinning to the central Masonic concept of  "The
Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God." The Rose Croix
Degrees are the spiritual center and among the most important in the
whole body of Freemasonry.
