    What do you mean? Because they're reversed from the way they're listed in Morals and Dogma? They got changed in a revision.

    Which are correct? The Scottish Rite Ritual Monitor and Guide is in black and white. Bridge to Light is in color. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    What are the copyright dates? The Monitor and Guide is correct. My copy of Bridge to Light, copyright 2006, has it correct also. You may have an older Bridge to Light, before the revision.

    There you go. The degrees were swapped in order in the 2000 revision.

    To be clear, degrees weren't actually "swapped" in 2000. The correction to Bridge To Light was just made, right?

    No, the order of those two was changed. The team that did the revisions felt they made more sense in the new order. Quote from the Monitor and Guide:

    "[In the 2000 revision]...the positions of the Knight of the Sun and Knight Commander of the Temple Degrees were reversed in order to ensure a logical progression in the Chivalric Degrees."
