Rosicrucianism and Stoicism–Grand Master Julie Scott, SRC

Rosicrucianism and Stoicism–Grand Master Julie Scott, SRC, from the “Sacred Italy” issue of the Rosicrucian Digest.

Julie Scott. SRC serves as the Grand Master for the English Grand Lodge for the Americas, and as the Supreme Secretary of the Order.

In the year 300 BCE, following a shipwreck in which he lost his fortune, Zeno, a merchant from modern-day Cyprus, founded Stoicism in Athens, Greece. Initially Stoicism included metaphysics, logic, and ethics, however the Romans, who embraced Stoicism centuries later, focused primarily on ethics and how to live a good and tranquil life. In this Podcast, Grand Master Julie Scott will discuss how Stoicism and Rosicrucianism have a lot in common.

Archaelogical Indications on the Origins of Roman Mithraism — Lewis M. Hopfe, Ph.D.

This podcast features an article from the December 2010 Mithraic Mysteries issue of the Rosicrucian Digest. Between the end of the first century CE and the last part of the fourth century, a mystery religion called Mithraism was extremely popular among soldiers, merchants, and civil administrators in the Roman Empire. Today more than four hundred locations of Mithraic worship have been identified in every area of the Roman Empire. Between the second and fourth centuries CE, Mithraism may have vied with Christianity for domination of the Roman world.

The Rise and Fall of the Mithraic Mysteries — V. L. Stephens, S.R.C., M.A.

This podcast features an article from the December 2010 Mithraic Mysteries issue of the Rosicrucian Digest. Who was Mithras and what are the Mithraic Mysteries? There was little written about the Mithraic Mysteries. It is only through the inferences drawn from the cave or cave-like Mithraea, the generally present Tauroctony scene and other images, the initiation titles, and the dedicatory stelai erected by primary participants, that we can make any conclusions about the content of the Mysteries. The author provides an overview and introduction to the Mithraic Mysteries.

The Neo-Pythagoreans at the Porta Maggiore in Rome — Lisa Spencer, S.R.C., M.A.O.M.

In the early twentieth century Roman crews were excavating for a new railway station when they came across a small vaulted basilica, about fifty feet underground. Notwithstanding its diminutive size (thirty by thirty-six feet), the find was extraordinary. Built sometime between the first century BCE and the first century CE, its walls are adorned with stucco bas-reliefs depicting mythological and mystery school themes, including those connected with the Neopythagoreans. It appears to have been a meeting place and perhaps an initiatory chamber for these Mysteries. This podcast introduces listeners to the significance of this archaeological record of the Pythagorean Tradition. The reader is Juanita Ortiz.
