KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS

A-knights-of-pythis-stone.jpg (86759 bytes)

TO OUR VALIANT BROTHERS WHO DIED  IN THE SERVICE OF OUR COUNTRY
IN WORLD WAR I  KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS - STATE OF NEW YORK

Founded in 1864 in Washington, D.C.
The Knights of Pythias began it's life as secret society for government clerks. Eventually the admissions and goals grew into a FRATERNAL organization  in the United States, Canada, and for a brief time a German speaking branch.

The Uniform Rank, Knights of Pythias:
grew out of various drill corps units that had been organized in the various lodges after the order was originated in 1864. Bear in mind that many of the members of the Knights of Pythias were men who had been active in the
Civil War and who enjoyed the disciplined way of life.

The Story of Damon and Phintias:
As reported by Diodorus Siculus and Cicero begins in Syracuse in the fourth century b.c. Phintias was condemned to death for opposing the tyrant Dionysius. Damon, his friend and fellow member of the Pythagoreans,   offered himself as hostage so that Phintias could make his farewells.

When the time for the execution of Phintias drew near and he had not returned, Damon offered himself in Phintias’ stead. At the last minute, Phintias reappeared and embraced his friend. Dionysus was so impressed that he released both men and begged to be admitted to their friendship.

Justus H. Rathbone, a government clerk, was the organizer of  the Knights of Pythias:
Justus H. Rathbone utilized the above story as his motivation to form Knights of Pythias on February 19, 1864. Initially KP membership was limited to government clerks like himself and his six cofounders

The Knights of Pythias called Lodge buildings Castles:
Officials had titles like Chancellor Commander, Vice Chancellor, Prelate, Master of the Work, Keeper of the Records and Seal, Master of Finance, Master of the Exchequer, Master at Arms, Inner Guard, and Outer Guard. Rituals included three degrees, Page, Esquire, and Knight.

One oath was as follows:
"Are you willing to take upon yourself a solemn obligation to keep forever secret all that you may hear, see or be instructed in — an obligation that will in no way conflict with your creed or your conscience. "

Symbolism for death and resurrection:
"On two trestles, twelve inches high, covered by a black pall reaching to the floor shall be placed an open coffin which shall contain a skeleton. On the coffin shall be two crossed swords, with the hilts towards the Prelate, and on these the open book of law. "
