What is the Sacred History of the Rosicrucians?

The Sacred History of the Rosicrucians is a nine part episodic series exploring the heritage and importance of the ancient mystery schools and the emergence of the Rosicrucian movement that continues to perpetuate the traditions and philosophies that sprang from them.

I was contracted by the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC to produce and narrate The Sacred History of the Rosicrucians series. The objective was to produce a series in the same vein as my Ancient Egypt Mystery Schools, a series that explores the mystery traditions rooted in ancient Egypt. You can find it in the private membership section at AncientEgyptMysterySchools.com.

I have compiled a playlist for all nine episodes for The Sacred History of the Rosicrucians for your viewing pleasure on my YouTube channel. Please take a moment to subscribe to my channel for more videos like these by clicking the image below.

Today’s Rosicrucian legacy consists of a vast collection of knowledge which has come down to through many centuries to enrich the cultural and spiritual heritage of AMORC. To the knowledge passed on by the sages of ancient Egypt were added philosophical concepts expressed by the great thinkers of ancient Greece, India, and the Arab world. Then, a few centuries later, the mystical precepts of Rosicrucian alchemists of the Middle Ages were formulated, followed by the vast expansion of knowledge which occurred from the Renaissance to the present day.
