Royal Arch, 13º


Dit amerikaanse rituaal dateert uit de tweede helft van de negentiende eeuw.

This title is purely English; it would be much better to call it “Royal Vault.”

Sign of Admiration. One knee being on the ground, the head turned towards the left, raise the hands towards the heavens.

Sign of Adoration. Ffall on the two knees.

Grip. Place the hands under the arms of the tyler, as if to aid him to rise, saying “TOUB BAANI AMAL RAB” (it is really a good thing to reward work); in reply, the tyler gives the same grip saying “J...M” (it is a good Mason).

Knocks. Five knocks by two and three.

Insignia. Blue tunic, red sash with gold fringe, a purple ribbon worn crosswise, on which are em­broidered the letters. I.V.L.O.L. (inveni verbum in ore leonis); the jewel is a golden triangle.

Sacred word. J...h.
