About this title


This unique anthology presents a clear understanding of the life and work of Christian Rosenkreutz and his importance for our time. A Christian Rosenkreutz Anthology helps clear away the secrecy and exclusivity long associated with Rosicrucianism. It offers readers a way of creative thinking that unites reason and revelation in modern language.

Included is the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, the Fama, and the Confessio, as well as writings by Robert Fludd, Thomas Vaughan, Rudolf Steiner, and others. Among the numerous illustrations is the entire Secret Symbols of the Rosicrucians, Daniel Stolcius' Pleasure Garden of Chymistry, and much more. This is perhaps the most valuable source book available for a complete overview of Rosicrucian literature.

About the Author:

Paul Marshall Allen (1913–1998) was an authority on the life and work of Rudolf Steiner and, as the “first American-born anthroposophic lecturer,” was a leading pioneer of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual science across North America. He edited and wrote introductions for numerous books on Anthroposophy and spiritual wisdom, including his classic work, A Christian Rosenkreutz Anthology (1968), and wrote Vladimir Soloviev: Russian Mystic (1968). With his wife Joan deRis Allen, Paul coauthored Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Creatures (1996); Fingal’s Cave, the Poems of Ossian, and Celtic Christianity (1999); and The Time Is at Hand! (1995).
