The Council degrees are largely an elaboration and explanation of the Royal Arch degree and, to a lesser extent, the Master Mason degree.

The first Council degree, the Royal Master, develops more fully the story of recovery of the “lost” word and the Holy of Holies of the Temple of King Solomon.

The next degree, Select Master, concerns itself with the construction and adornment of the subterranean vault introduced in the Royal Arch degree of the Chapter.

The last degree is that of Superexcellent Master, and tells the story of the Babylonian Captivity, and of Zedekiah and his perfidy. Council Masonry is also referred to as “Cryptic Masonry”, in allusion to the continuance of the vault, or crypt.
