This short course is meant to provide an Introduction to the Capitular Degrees for those who have decided to take the next step on Freemasonry, following the Three Blue Lodge Degrees. There are many excellent books about the symbolism of the Chapter, but many of them are about the English (or so-called 'Domatic') system, and don't make easy reading for an American reader. There are also number of impressive Monitors, written by great men and Masons. Thomas Smith Webb and Albert Gallatin Mackey are but two of these luminaries. However, again these serve more as reference books to those who are already familiar with the Rituals and their meaning. It is hoped that this book fills the gap for the modern Companion who needs a little help to understand the Capitular environment. For this reason this course, in addition to giving an overview of the Degree, also looks at practical topics, such as the organization of a Chapter, Grand Chapter, the Constitutions, the Charities, and General Grand Chapter.
