A personage in some of the Ineffable Degrees of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. In Scripture he is recorded as having been one of the two chief Priests in the time of David, Abiathar being the other. He subsequently, by order of David, anointed Solomon to be King, by whom he was rewarded with the post of High Priest. Josephus (Antiquities of the Jews x, 8, 6) says that "Sadoc, the High Priest, was the first High Priest of the Temple which Solomon built." Yet it has been supposed by some authors, in consequence of his name not being mentioned in the detailed account of the dedication, that he had died before the completion of the Temple.
