Hierarchy of the OLE

The Ordo Lapsit Exillis is an organization consisting of three grades: Legionnaire, Quartermaster, and Navigator. These degrees represent the level of obligation which the candidate has taken, and therefore the level of initiation that he or she has received. The following paragraphs describe the duties required of and the benefits received by the members of each grade.

Legionnaire (First Degree):
Motto: Ab initio (“From the beginning...”)

In this initiatory level, members learn about the OLE, its works and its teachings, as well as the benefits and requirements of membership. The Legionnaire is given access to the OLE’s exclusive website and discussion group, and is invited to attend Order functions. They are under no further obligation than to pay their dues for access to the site, and to remain silent about all officially classified OLE materials, including the content of the website and discussion group. If the candidate wishes to advance to the next level, he is encouraged to spend his time in the First Degree absorbing the Order's teachings, including materials on the recommended reading list, and to meditate on the mysteries discovered therein. We especially appreciate those who can not only read and memorize material, but who can reach within themselves to find new and different ways of interpreting the material - connections and ideas hat have not yet been made. The candidate should be able to absorb and comprehend the mysteries of the OLE on a number of levels: symbolic and literal, material and spiritual. The mysteries of our Order, and a love for the essence of the Grail should infuse the candidate’s mind, body, and soul.

In addition to learning and meditation, candidates of the First Degree are encouraged to find some way of making themselves useful to the Order, at least one method of serving the Grail in a proactive, hands-on fashion. Here are a number of suggestions, although the possibilities are by no means limited to those on this list:

Quartermaster (Second Degree)
Motto: Dirigio (“I guide...”)

Invitation to join the Second Degree is at the discretion of the Order’s Navigators, although those who feel themselves worthy may submit a written petition summarizing their qualifications, and addressed to the Outer Head of our Order, Rex Mundi.

Those of the Second Degree have proven their loyalty to the Order, sown their understanding of the teachings, and actively demonstrated their utility by serving the Grail. They are therefore initiated into some of the inner mysteries and hidden doctrines of the Order. They also continue their work in the service of our ideals, now with greater privileges, and greater responsibilities. Those of the Second Degree have the right to act as authorized agents of the OLE, and can make business or other arrangements on our behalf. (They are given official OLE calling cards for this purpose.) They may also sponsor legionnaires that they believe should be advanced to the next level. They are given access to materials and receive benefits that members of the Legion do not. They communicate directly with the Navigators of the Order on issues of concern.

Navigator (Third Degree)
Motto: Ad Augusta Per Angusta (“To holy places through narrow spaces.”)

Those elevated to the Third Degree have shown extraordinary understandings, usefulness, and loyalty to the Order. They have also demonstrated their ability to keep silent about classified OLE materials, and to meet their obligations to the Order. The Navigators are those who direct the policy and activities of the Order. They are initiated into all of the Order’s inner mysteries. They obtain maximum benefits from their membership. About the details of the Navigator no more can be said.

Requirements for Membership:

Potential members of the Ordo Lapsit Exillis should be 18 years of age, intelligent, curious, loyal, dedicated, and motivated to serve the power of the Grail. Those who meet these requirements are encouraged to join immediately!
