The Consistory of the Scottish-Ecossais Rite USA
“The Grand Consistory of Scottish-Ecossais Rite USA.”
The degrees of Scottish-Ecossais Rite date from around 1754 and are based upon rituals from the Chevalier de Bonneville when he established a chapter of high degrees called the Chapter of Clermont, in honor of Louis Of Bourbon, Prince of Clermont, and at that time Grand Master of the fraternity in France.
Additionally the Council of Emperors of the East and West in 1758 took over these degrees. The Scottish-Ecossais Rite brings these degrees back under one Consistory; the Scottish-Ecossais Rite of French Masonry.
This Grand Consistory is not associated with the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite Southern Jurisdiction in any form.
