Rosicrucianism and Theosophy with Susanne Hoepfl Wellenhofer 10. 9Rosicrucianism is a movement that arose in Europe in the early 17th century. The existence of the order first came into public notice when two Latin pamphlets, known as the Fama Fraternitatis and as Confessio Fraternitati, were published in Germany, describing the foundation and aims of this esoteric order.

What exactly did the Rosicrucian manuscripts reveal? How many members did the original organization have, and what did they promise to do under oath? What did Theosophical Society co-founder Helena Blavatsky and other Theosophists say about Rosicrucianism? Did the Mahatmas mention Rosicrucianism in their letters to A. P. Sinnet?

What are the rules Rosicrucians need to live by? What are the secret signs or characteristics of a Rosicrucian? Are there exercises that can help develop these characteristics?

In this four-part class, we will work on deciphering the Rosicrucian manuscripts, learn what various Theosophists have written about the Rosicrucians, and share some of the secret signs and characteristics of a Rosicrucian along with exercises that can help develop these characteristics.
