The System of Eclectic Masonry or Eclectic Rite was compiled in 1776, at first, with fourteen degrees by the Baron of Ditfurth (Franz Dietrich von Ditfurth: 1738, Dankersen, Germany - 1813, Weser, Germany), being published in 1779, in Germany, renovated between 1782-1783 by the Baron de Knigge, (Freiherr Adolph Franz Friedrich Ludwig Knigge: October 16, 1752, Wennigsen, Germany - May 6, 1796, Bremen, Germany) . The Rite was also successful in Poland, Naples, Denmark, France and Switzerland. In Cisplatina and in the River Plate, the rite was installed in 1783, when the Great East of Uruguay and its Supreme Council - GOU-SC split and the foundation on April 19, 1882, of the Great East of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay - GOROU, immediately installing Shops, Chapters and Councils, under the command and direction of Dr. Justino Jiménes de Aréchaga and Rufino P.

In Brazil, Eclectic Masonry and its philosophy was introduced in 1892 by Councilor Gaspar da Silveira Martins (Department of Cerro Largo, August 5, 1835 - Montevideo, July 23, 1901) , in Rio Grande do Sul, when he returned from exile from Europe. It also tells the story that Eclectic Shops and Chapters were installed under the command of Councilor Gaspar da Silveira Martins, General Gumercindo Saraiva (Arroio Grande, January 13, 1852 - Carovi, Capão do Cipó, August 10, 1894) , General Aparício Saraiva da Rosa ( Santa Clara de Olimar, at the time belonging to the department of Cerro Largo, currently of Treinta y Três, Uruguay - August 16, 1856 - Santana do Livramento, Brazil, September 10, 1904) and General João Nunes da Silva Tavares (Barão de Itaqui: Herval, May 24, 1818 - Bagé, January 9, 1906) , in the trenches of the Maragatos, Cerro Largo and Bagé, during the Federalist Revolution, (1893-1895) .   With the death of Gumercindo, in 1894, and with the return of Silveira Martins to Montevideo, the Eclectic Rite had an ephemeral duration in the Federative Republic of Brazil. Eclectic Lodges were suppressed by the Old and Accepted Scottish Rite. In the south of the country, the Rite was also known as Rite of the Illuminated, or simply, Rites of the Gasparistas.
