Excerpt from The Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries

The words 'Third Edition' to a work of this character, which, it will readily be confessed, prefers claims to being quite sui generis, excite mixed feelings on the part of its Authors.

The present edition has been carefully revised, at the same time that it has been largely extended. It comprises, now, Two Volumes. The addition of new engravings - singularly suggestive, prepared with great care, presenting very antique and authentic claims speaks - for value.

The Authors can refer with pride to the numerous letters which reach them, if pride, or even particular gratification (according to ordinary ideas), could actuate in the statement of the fact. This is a serious treatise upon the 'Rosicrucians.' Letters expressing great interest, some anonymous, some with names, addressed from all parts from Germany, France, Spain, the West Indies; from India, Italy, and Denmark, and from remote corners in our own country - these have multiplied since the work was first published. America has displayed unbounded curiosity. To all these communications, with a few exceptions, no answers have been (nor could be) returned. The volumes themselves must be read with attention, or nothing is effected. The book must be its own interpreter, if interpretation is sought. But interpretation does not apply in this instance.

With one word we shall conclude.

Book Description:

Despite contemporary criticisms, Jennings' work is accepted as authoritative in its field. Alongside his history, the book's discussions extend to the Kabbalah, Gnosticism, the Druids, and ancient and medieval cultures. The work is invested in revealing the presence and philosophy of the Rosicrucians across times and cultures.

About the Author:

About the Author:

"Hargrave Jennings (1817-1890) was a British Freemason, Rosicrucian, author on occultism and esotericism, and amateur student of comparative religion.

In several voluminous works, Jennings developed the theory that the origin of all religion is to be sought in phallic worship of the Sun and fire, which he properly called "phallism."

In addition to the works to which he affixed his own name, Jennings is thought by some researchers to have written a number of anonymous volumes in the privately printed "Nature Worship and Mystical Series" series, and possibly also to have written under the pseudonym "Sha Rocco."

As Jennings made clear in several of his books, he used the word "phallic" in its non-gendered sense, meaning "having to do with the sexual organs"; thus he included worship of the female genitalia under the heading of "phallic." In later editions he reluctantly acceded to popular (although incorrect) usage and called his subject "phallicism."" (Quote from wikipedia.org)
