    Another thought (with absolutely nothing to back it) is that it came from The Royal Society, where "Fellow" was a step above "Member." It probably wouldn't be the first thing our supper club borrowed from the Society.

    This is untruthful and silly, and not even fun silly.

    As noted, the Jesters were not formed in the US until 1911. The White Chapel murders were some 20 years before that. The Jesters do not have York Rite as a prerequisite. England does not use the term York Rite.

    The individual to whom you cite, claims to have been a vampire, and is a known fraud.

    You aren't a Mason, are you?

    That's up there with the moon is made of cheese and the cow jumps over it on Tuesdays at 2 pm but the cow is too busy on odd months to do it because its getting milk transfusions into its left 7th lung... or that the RMS Titanic sank in 1899 AD because it flew too close to the European Unions Space Station because the Captains IPhone 6's firmware failed.

    Are you disappointed in the 7 Grand Lecturers who couldn't or maybe just wouldn't tell you the answer to your question?

    I heard from somewhere and I can't quite put my finger on from whom but it was told to me that the distinction was made between Brothers & Fellows to mark partially what Coach has said. The differences of Masonic degrees between two members.

    This same guy told me also to consider the time period when those words were framed by the men of that day. There was a proximity to other English organizations like the Royal Society which I believe someone else mentioned in this thread.

    There seem to be an open fraternal approach towards possible Craft & Society cross membership.

    Sounded plausible and sensible to me when i heard it.

    I am a Freemason, although not a very seasoned one. What in my query gave you the impression that I was not a Freemason. I appreciate the communication, illumination and fraternity in the discussions here. I used "liturgy" in quotations as I was at a loss for a proper or respectful word in the moment. I know that liturgy is a religious reference but "lines," "oral drama," "script," etc didn't seem to cut it at the time . . . perhaps "degree work" would have sufficed. Thank you.

    Ritual is the generally used term.

    Ah, I am a word guy so I was thinking of the "script" and didn't consider referring generally to the entire ritual although it would have been better to.
    I think of ritual as the entire passion play en toto.
