DESCRIPTION

The Order is otherwise known as the Travelling Templars and tells of the Fourth Grand Lodge held in Rome. The story line takes place as the 4th Grand or Fraternal Lodge, held in Rome by Titus Caesar who presided. The Order meets in Conclaves, and the presiding officer (WM) is known as the Illustrious Preceptor.

The candidate goes through two Degrees, usually conferred in consecutive meetings. In the first Degree he is received as a Pilgrim, and in the second he is advanced to the rank of a Preceptor.

Pilgrim:- Having beheld the ruins of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, the aspirant journeys to Rome where he gains sanctuary in the catacombs. He is then ordained a Pilgrim after which he successfully appeals to the emperor for the restitution of the sacred landmarks of the Order and is thus, in consequence, rewarded with a token of his new position.

Preceptor:- The postulant is now instructed that the truths that were revealed during seven major events across the aeons of time have materially contributed to the wisdom of man. It relates that, with the assistance of the emblematical lights of Masonry, those tenets and principles were duly restored in a Fourth or Fraternal Lodge.
