BECOME A KNIGHT TEMPLAR
QUALIFICATIONS FOR MEMBERSHIP
As an intimate connection has long existed between the Orders of the Temple and Freemasonry, candidates for admission into this Order must be subscribing members of a Craft Lodge and a Royal Arch Chapter, and must be a Christian who professes the Doctrine of the Trinity.
The regalia required for admission is a white tunic with red Latin cross, a white mantle with a red cross pattée, a pair of black gloves, a black sash, a red cap, a brown belt with frog and a ceremonial sword. Two jewels are also required - a red Templar cross with the ribbon of the Order and a Knight's Star.
A further jewel - a Malta cross - is required when a Knight is admitted into the Order of Malta.
