Supreme Council Mother of the World
In 1801, a Supreme Council was opened in Charleston, SC, under the above Constitutions, absorbing the previously existing Rite of Perfection. This Supreme Council subsequently issued warrants for other Supreme Councils. All other regular Supreme Councils of today are descended, directly or indirectly, from this Supreme Council of the Southern Jurisdiction, United States of America.
In 1813, the Southern Jurisdiction established the Supreme Council 33° for the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States. In 1845, the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction warranted a Supreme Council in England and Wales.
There are now independent Supreme Councils in over 60 countries.
