For My Rosicrucian Fratres

For those in the Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis, along with other interested parties, there is a new, modern translation of the Fama Fraternitatis, Confessio Fraternitatis, and The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz that is slated to be released in September. 

The official title is Rosicrucian Trilogy: Modern Translations of the Three Founding Documents, translated by Joscelyn GodwinChristopher McIntosh, and Donate Pahnke McIntosh. These foundational texts were first published anonymously between 1607 and 1616, and are essential to anyone with an interest in studying the Rosicrucian tradition.

  1. Excellent event posting, by WBro. and Frater, Chris Hodapp.

    Fratres, Rosicrucian meetings tend to be very cerebral affairs so I highly recommend you order and read "Rosicrucian Trilogy" before the High Council meeting starts. The SRICF and several major non-Masonic Rosicrucian bodies of today all claim some type of direct or indirect relationship/influence with the 'Foundational Texts'.

    So whether you are an old highly advanced student who could use a little refreshment or a fairly new student (less than 20 years study), this book is for us.
