“The Golden Verses of Pythagoras: A New Translation” by Steven Armstrong, FRC, MA, MDiv

“The Golden Verses of Pythagoras: A New Translation” by Steven Armstrong, FRC, MA, MDiv, from the “Mystical Italy” issue of the Rosicrucian Digest (Online Supplementals)

In this podcast, following the latest scholarship, Frater Armstrong of the Grand Lodge staff presents a fresh translation of the venerable “Golden Verses of Pythagoras” which emphasizes the textual continuity of the verses. In addition, he provides insight into the translation process itself, as this ancient wisdom is as fresh and useful today as it was millennia ago. Included in the Golden Verses is the well-known Pythagorean “Review of the Day,” still practiced by Rosicrucians and others today.

“Michelangelo’s Piazza del Campidoglio” David M. Aguilera, FRC, PhD, ABPP

“Michelangelo’s Piazza del Campidoglio” David M. Aguilera, FRC, PhD, ABPP, from the “Mystical Italy” issue of the Rosicrucian Digest

Michelangelo’s magnificent design for the Piazza del Campidoglio on Rome’s Capitoline Hill was only completed in the 1940s. Its stately curvilinear lines with twelve points suggest the astrological influence of Marsilio Ficino, among other references. In this podcast, Dr. Aguilera introduces us to how this Pizza functions in the life of the Eternal City, and what it reflects of its designer, Michelangelo.

Leonardo da Vinci: Artist, Scientist, Mystic — by the Staff of the Rosicrucian Research Library

“Leonardo da Vinci: Artist, Scientist, Mystic” — by the Staff of the Rosicrucian Research Library, from the “Mystical Italy” issue of the Rosicrucian Digest

Leonardo da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) typifies the art, science, and spiritual yearnings of the Italian Renaissance. During this vibrant transitional period, medieval Western Europe was reawakening to the knowledge and wisdom of the ancient world. This was transmitted to them through reexamining what had been preserved in the West, but even more dynamically, from Constantinople and the Byzantine Roman East, as well as through Islamic science, art, and literature. The result of this fusion was the Renaissance of the fifteenth to sixteenth centuries, which ushered in the modern Western world.

This podcast is a reading of selections from the instructional booklet prepared for the da Vinci exhibit at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose and at the Rosicrucian Cultural Center at the Toronto Lodge during 2006.

The Alchemy Exhibit at Rosicrucian Park
Dennis William Hauck, FRC, Ph.D.

Recently Rosicrucian members and guests joined Grand Master Julie Scott and Frater Dennis William Hauck for the dedication of the Alchemy Exhibit at Rosicrucian Park. This exhibit presents an introduction to Alchemy, an important part of the Rosicrucian Tradition, and leads guests through the seven steps of the alchemical process. It also includes a reproduction of a medieval Alchemist’s Workshop, a copy of The Ripley Scroll, and a meditation chamber featuring the “Azoth of the Philosophers” image.

This exhibit, on display in the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, will serve as the center-piece for the new Alchemy Museum at Rosicrucian Park, once the funds for the museum are raised. The Rosicrucian Alchemy Museum will be the first alchemy museum in the United States and the largest Alchemy Museum in the world.

This reading of the article presents some of the text from the Alchemy Exhibit panels, and includes the Azoth Meditation.
