    Your Opinion on Rosicrucians?

    The Rosicrucians is an extensively researched historical film based on rare manuscripts found at Rosicrucian headquarters in California and France. This video describes the intriguing story of this enigmatic Order, from its distant past to the exciting present. Learn how Rosicrucian ideas about education, democracy, free inquiry, human rights, and expansion of consciousness have exercised vital imprints on today's society. The narrative also includes quotations from important contributors to civilization throughout the centuries - philosophers, scientists, scholars, writers, artist - all of whom have been associated with the Rosicrucians.

    I think the Rosicrucians are just one of many "ancient wisdom sects", and weren't they partly instigators of the French Revolution? I also remember some Rosicrucian connection to Atlantis, but my memory is failing me at the moment.

    The Freemasons get a lot of slack for their secrecy, but the Rosicrucians have had to fare with worse allegations. Nowadays anyone can claim to be a Rosicrucian and since there are countless Rosicrucian sects, there's hardly anyone who can vouch for who is or isn't a genuine Rosicrucian. There are probably many more imposters and charlatans in the latter. It's safe to assume that most Rosicrucian sects are untrustworthy.

    Neither Rosicrucians nor the Bavarian Illuminati were involved in the French Revolution's excesses.

    I had, and may still have somewhere, an ephemeris book from the Rosicrucians for the year I was born. It's for astrology.

    I read somewhere that the Rosicrucians are credited with the revival of interest in astrology in the United States.
