A Christian Rosenkreutz Anthology

Introduction by Carlo Pietzner Selected and Introduced by Paul Marshall Allen

648 pp.  
8 3/4" x 11 1/4"



Published:  October 2000


This unique anthology presents a clear understanding of the life and work of Christian Rosenkreutz and his importance for our time. A Christian Rosenkreutz Anthology helps clear away the secrecy and exclusivity long associated with Rosicrucianism. It offers readers a way of creative thinking that unites reason and revelation in modern language.

Included is the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, the Fama, and the Confessio, as well as writings by Robert Fludd, Thomas Vaughan, Rudolf Steiner, and others. Among the numerous illustrations is the entire Secret Symbols of the Rosicrucians, Daniel Stolcius' Pleasure Garden of Chymistry, and much more. This is perhaps the most valuable source book available for a complete overview of Rosicrucian literature.
