Knights of Pythias

Secret Societies - Occult World

The Order of Knights of Pythias was founded in 1864. They claim to promote friendship among men and to help relieve people’s suffering. It bases its rituals on the story of Damon and Pythias. It borrowed elements from the Masons and Red Men. Today there are about 2000 lodges in the USA and Canada. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was initiated into the Knights of Pythias in 1936 in a special ceremony in the diplomatic reception room of the white house.
