  Rosicrucian Documents  
Fama Fraternitatis

Included here is the text of the first Rosicrucian manifesto, the Fama Fraternitatis or, a DISCOVERY of the Fraternity of the Most Laudable Order of the Rosy Cross as translated by Thomas Vaughan (Eugenius Philalethes). This is version is presented as it was reprinted in the Rosicrucian Digest, Volume 82, number 1 published Spring 2004.



Confessio Fraternitatis

The Confessio Fraternitatis is the second Roscrucian manifesto, published first in 1615 in Latin (along with the Consideratio brevis) and later that year in German. Although some English translation manuscript copies have been discoverd dating from the 1620's, a complete Engilsh version was not published till 1652. Thomas Vaughan, the alchemical writer translated this first english edition.




Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz

The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz is the third Rosicrucian manifesto and written in a style that is very different from the two first Manifestos (The Fama Fraternitatis & the Confessio Fraternitatis). It describes a journey of initiation that represents the quest for Illumination. This seven-day journey mainly takes place in a mysterious castle where the Wedding of a king and a queen is to be celebrated. Symbolically the "Chymical Wedding" describes the spiritual progression bringing the Initiate to achieve union between his soul (the bride) and God (the groom).



Positio Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis

The Rosicrucian World Convention in Sweden in August 2001 reflected a theme of world peace and harmony among all nations and peoples. It was at this convention that Rosicrucian Imperator Christian Bernard introduced the Positio Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis, a document informing the public of AMORC’s position regarding today’s world situation, the dangers threatening it, and the future prospects we wish for all. We hope that you will read the Positio with an open mind and that it will strike a responsive chord within your consciousness.




Appellatio Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis

On the 400th Anniversary of the publication of the first Rosicrucian Manifesto, the Fama Fraternitatis, in 1614, the Rosicrucians publish the fifth Rosicrucian Manifesto - the Appellatio Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis - an Appeal for Ecology, Humanism, and Spirituality.

Join in this important work and help to spread this call for action to others, for the good of all humanity, all beings, and our planet!
