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).

The Light Beyond Death by Max Heindel

The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception by Max Heindel
The first edition was printed in November 1909, it has little changed since then and it is considered to be Max Heindel's magnum opus. It is a reference work in the Christian mysticism practice and in the Occult study literature, containing the fundamentals of Esoteric Christianity from a Rosicrucian perspective. The Cosmo contains a comprehensive outline of the evolutionary process of man and the universe, correlating science with religion. It is, till current days, the basic book for the Philosophy courses of the school, The Rosicrucian Fellowship, founded by the author in 1909/11.

Secret Symbols of the Rosicrucians of the 16th and 17th Centuries
This book is a rare collection of full-size plates illustrating and explaining Rosicrucian symbols. Invaluable reference material. This document is (according to the fronts piece) "an exact reproduction of the original but with the German text and terms literally translated." Due to the size, this document has been split into three files.

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.

The Corpus Hermeticum
Corpus Hermeticum are the core documents of the Hermetic tradition. Dating from early in the Christian era, they were mistakenly dated to a much earlier period by Church officials (and everyone else) up until the 15th century. Because of this, they were allowed to survive and we seen as an early precursor to what was to be Christianity. We know today that they were, in fact, from the early Christian era, and came out of the turbulent religious seas of Hellenic Egypt. (zip)
