I have a character who recently acquired the Celestial Template, which gives:

Damage Reduction: 10/Magic
Spell Resistance: 19

If I cast the cleric spell Spell Resistance as a 10th level cleric, which says in part:

Subject gains SR 22.

Would these SRs stack, or use the highest number?

No. SR from multiple sources does not stack, you use only the highest number.

From the bottom of the description of spell resistance:

Spell resistance does not stack. It overlaps.


You would use the higher number. I am not sitting here with my DMG

Spell resistance does not stack. It overlaps. SRD Refrence
