Due to my recent bout with shingles and the like, here is a small contribution about the Consistory.

31st degree - Inspector Inquisitor: 

This degree teaches prayerful self-examination. The mistakes today should not be committed tomorrow. Simply, the daily look at ones self to learn to live with the future. No apron is worn in the Supreme Tribunal, but in inferior bodies, a white sheep-skin apron with a silver Teutonic cross may be worn. The jewel is a silver Teutonic cross. The jewel may be suspended from a white collar, with a gold triangle with a "31" inside it.  But in inferior bodies it may be suspended from a golden chain, the links of which form the eight fundamental degrees of Masonry:  The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 14th, 16th, 18th, and 30th.
