    Comenius was in England during Rose Cross In the early 17th century, the manifestos caused excitement throughout Europe by declaring the existence of a secret brotherhood of alchemists and sages who were preparing to transform the arts, sciences, religion, and political and intellectual landscape of Europe. In Cairo, he became a student of a Coptic magician named Paulos Metamon. The idea of such an order, exemplified by the network of astronomers, professors, mathematicians, and natural philosophers in 16th-century Europe promoted by such men as Johannes KeplerGeorg Joachim RheticusJohn Dee and Tycho Brahegave rise to the Invisible College. Surveying experts, Marrs cuts through the wild speculation and the attempts to silence critical thinkers to tell the true story of this secret cabal. Their writings point toward a symbolic and spiritual alchemy, rather than an operative one.

    Our book, inasmuch as it deals--or professes to deal--seriously with strange things and with deep mysteries, needs the means of interpretation in the full attention of the reader: otherwise, little will be made, or can come, of it. They were based on the occult, inspired by the mystery of this "College of Invisibles". Uncharacteristically for a book of this vintage, there are almost no footnotes, and very little other scholarly apparatus although he occasionally gives elaborate bibliographic citations in the body of the text. They state: "We speak unto you by parables, but would willingly bring you to the right, simple, easy, and ingenuous exposition, understanding, declaration, and knowledge of all secrets. Its members claimed that the leaders of the Rosicrucian Order had invented Freemasonry and only they knew the secret meaning of Masonic symbols.

    Whether he will succeed in engaging the attention of modern readers to a consideration of this time-honoured philosophy remains to be seen but this he is assured of, that the admiration of all students and reflective minds will be excited by the unrivalled powers of thinking of the Rosicrucians. In other ways, he was far in advance of his time in his concepts of the roles of gender and sexuality in the quest for spiritual perfection. It never was anything more than a superstition arising from ignorance. Some of them are, indeed, most extraordinary but, in order to do full justice to the speculations of the Hermetic Brethren, he has put forward their ideas with as much of their original- force as he was able and, in some parts of his book, he believes he has urged them with such apparent warmth, that they, will very likely seem to have been his own most urgent convictions.

Rosicrucians, their rites and mysteries book

A Freemason and Rosicrucian, he numbered among his friends the American sex magician and occult writer Paschal Beverly Randolph. Their writings point toward a symbolic and spiritual alchemy, rather than an operative one.

Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries

The rose can clearly be seen at the center of the cross. As far as he can. Under the leadership of Hermann Fictuld the group reformed itself extensively in and again in because of political pressure.

It is, in brief, a history of the alchemical philosophers, written with a serious explanatory purpose, and for the first time impartially stated since the days of James. Some of them are, indeed, most extraordinary but, in order to do full justice to the speculations of the Hermetic Brethren, he has put forward their ideas with as much of their original- force as he was able and, in some parts of his book, he believes he has urged them with such apparent warmth, that they, will very likely seem to have been his own most urgent convictions.

Their symbol was said to be a red cross surmounted by a rose, thus the designation of Rosy Cross. His relish for these matters might seem unexpected in a Christian minister of his time period, but Jennings apparently saw no moral contradiction between studying the Bible and writing enthusiastic descriptions of lingam-in-yoni artifacts from India.

He was particularly interested in the erotic temple architecture of India, but did not overlook even the humble phallic charmstones of California native tribes. This was the precursor to the Royal Society founded in In addition to the works to which he affixed his own name, Jennings is thought by some researchers to have written a number of anonymous volumes in the limited edition and privately printed "Nature Worship and Mystical Series", and possibly also to have written under the pseudonym "Sha Rocco.

From this conversion, Rosicrucianism was supposedly born, by purifying Egyptian mysteries with the new higher teachings of early Christianity.

Jennings also wrote a number of other books, primarily on phallic worship, including The Masculine Cross and Ancient Sex Worshipalso at online sacred-textsunder odd pseudonyms such as 'Sha Rocco' and Abisha S. Among these were Robert Boylewho wrote: "the cornerstones of the Invisible or as they term themselves the Philosophical College, do now and then honour me with their company The application, proper or otherwise, of these powers is a matter altogether beside the present inquiry.

You won't find much in the way of historical description of the Rosicrucians here. We did by agreements, divers of us, meet weekly in London on a certain day and hour, under a certain penalty, and a weekly contribution for the charge of experiments, with certain rules agreed amongst us, Rosicrucians treat and discourse of such affairs They were based on the occult, inspired by the mystery of this "College of Invisibles".

Rosicrucianism is a spiritual and cultural movement which arose in Europe in the early 17th century after the publication of several texts which purported to announce the existence of a hitherto unknown esoteric order to the world and made seeking its knowledge attractive to many.

The mysterious doctrine of the order is "built on esoteric truths of the ancient past", which "concealed from the average man.
