The History of Rosicrucian Park–David Cherveny, FRC

This year marks the ninetieth year of Rosicrucian Park as the focus of Rosicrucian activity in North America and around the world. The word, focus, is a most apt description since, in the households of ancient Rome, the hearth (focus in Latin) was the center of the home. Sacred to the goddess Vesta, whose virtues had defined the sanctity, purity, and harmony of the ideal Roman family, the hearth provided warmth and light, and it was the place where nourishment was prepared. In so many ways, Rosicrucian Park has served the Rosicrucian Order and the San Jose community in these very capacities.

Rosicrucian Initiatic Journeys to Egypt

Rosicrucian initiatic journeys to Egypt began in 1929 with Imperator H. Spencer Lewis
leading the first group. These extraordinary pilgrimages continue until today. Seventy-five
Rosicrucians from throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe accompanied
H. Spencer Lewis on that first initiatic journey. The principal destination was Egypt, however
on the way to and from that mystic land, the travelers visited mystical sites in the Madeira
Islands, the Mediterranean, North Africa, the Holy Land, and Europe. As this was in the
days before regular transatlantic air service, the journey lasted seventy days. It concluded on
the Spring Equinox.

This trip was especially tailored for Rosicrucians. As is the case today, the travelers were treated
to unique experiences and unusual sites normally passed over by the casual tourist of the day.
At every site, in every city, members learned about cultural and mystical aspects related to the
site generally unknown to the ordinary traveler. Of course the most special features of this trip
were the unique initiations conducted by Imperator Lewis. This tradition continues today
with Imperator Christian Bernard conferring the initiatic rituals in Egypt.

The entire 1929 tour was chronicled in eleven consecutive issues of The Mystic Triangle
magazine (the predecessor to today’s Rosicrucian Digest), from February through December
1929. We present below an excerpt from the original series.

Jasmine Day Interview with Steven Armstrong, F.R.C.

Dr. Jasmine Day was born in 1972 in Perth, Australia, and received her PhD in Cultural Anthropology from The University of Western Australia in 2002. A book based on her thesis, The Mummy’s Curse: Mummymania in the English-speaking World, was published by Routledge in August 2006. She combines a general knowledge of Egyptology (especially funerary customs and mummification) with an anthropological perspective on both the culture of ancient Egypt and modern cultures’ understandings of ancient Egypt (i.e. Egyptomania). She specializes in the study of Mummymania, the Western fascination with, and representations of, Egyptian mummies. She visited the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum on July 31, 2007, and we were fortunate enough to have some time for a conversation on her favorite subjects!

The Step Pyramid — Lisa Hertzburg

The Step Pyramid marked the beginning of the Pyramid Age, a time in Egypt’s history distinguished by monumental progression and building ingenuity. While many have admired its physical structure and integrity, others have sought to understand its meaning. The Step Pyramid was built for the king and to serve the king, but how has been debated.
