Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Free Masonry date from the Hebrew Year, calling it Anno Mundi, which they abbreviate A. M., signifying In the Year of the World. The present year, A. M. 5683 is obtained by adding 3760 to the Vulgar Era. Thus 3760 and 1923 - 5683. The New Year, 5684, will begin September 22, 1923, at sunset.
Sciots, so called, from organization of Masonic Neighborhood Leagues existing in the Isle of Scio, near Greece, in the Aegean Sea, about 1160 B. C. Modern organization occurred in San Francisco, 1906, so that 1923 is the 17th Sciot Year.
Members of the Eastern Star date from the Year of the Rite, A. D. 1850, at which time the degrees were arranged by Brother Robert Morris of Kentucky. The present year A. R. 73 is obtained by subtracting 1850 from the Vulgar Era. Thus 1850 from 1923 - 73.
