There is nothing in the Standard Work and Lecturers that specifies what to do with the Bible Markers when taken out of the Bible so that the Square and Compasses can be places on that page. Some Lodges fold the Marker up and place it underneath the Bible, others to the side, and some lay it across the Altar just above the Bible.

There is also nothing that specifies where and how the Square and Compasses are to be placed on the Bible prior to it’s opening or after it’s closing.

These are solely at the discretion of the Senior Deacon at the pleasure of the Worshipful Master.
