Das System der Knights Templar (Tempelritter), umfaßt folgende Orden (Masonic Orders of Christian Knigthood):

  • X° Knight of the Red Cross (auch Companion).
  • XII° Knight Templar,
  • Knight of St. John

Dazu kommt gelegentlich noch als Anhängsel der Mediterranean Pass oder Knight of St. Paul. Die Grade der Knights Templar werden in Commanderies, Komtureien, erteilt. Die Chapters sind in jedem Staat im Grand Chapter zusammengeschlossen, die Councils im Grand Council, die Commanderies im Encampment. Für die Vereinigten Staaten gibt es ein General Grand Chapter of the USA., einen General Council und ein Grand Encampent (s. alle diese Grade).
