The Past Master Degree in Masonry is an honorary degree. It is more closely associated with sumbolic than capitular Masonry. It is primarily a necessary or rational degree, containing little of the deep sumbolism of the Mark Master and Royal Arch Degrees. The recipients of this degree are caled Virtual Past Masters, while those who receive the degree prior to their installation as Worshipful Master are called Actual Past Masters. Once becoming a Past Master, the recipient is entitled to wear a Past Master Ring.
