The Rosicrucian Tradition
"Mea Victoria Crux Rosae"
"I am a lily of the valley and a flower of saron", Cant-2.v.1
In the 16th century spirituality in europe had a revival through the
influences of asain travellers and the influences of the masters.
Of course these people were supressed through the influences of the church. Therefore
secrecy was an important factor for success - still until today.
It was the time when the 22 cards of the tarot were painted.
In several countries rosicrucian authors published their strange books
with symbolic descriptions of the path. The "Einfältig ABC-Büchlein"
of the rosicrucians is only one example.

The traditional rosicrucian brothership has never been on a magic path but it has always been a spiritual brothership(with relation to the white brothership).
