Now for the first time, those original three documents are brought to life in reliable, readable, modern English. “Rosicrucian Trilogy” presents an accessible modern translation of the founding texts – “Fama Fraternitatis” (1614), “Confessio Fraternitatis” (1615), and “The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreuz” (1616) with thirty original illustrations by Hans Wildermann. …. “Rosicrucian Trilogy” is fully annotated, with modern introductions that explain the historical context and shed light on the beginnings of the Rosicrucian Order, and bring this fascinating material to a wider readership.’ Joscelyn Godwin is a composer, musicologist and translator, known for his work on ancient music, paganism and music in the occult; Christopher McIntosh is a writer and historian specializing in the esoteric traditions of the West, who was for several years on the faculty of the Centre for the Study of Esotericism at Exeter University; Donate Pahnke McIntosh is a scholar of religion and a lecturer at the University of Bremen, specialized in Gender Studies, Esotericism, and Ritual.
