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.

We Did It! — Julie Scott, SRC

Soror Julie Scott, Grand Master of the English Grand Lodge for the Americas and Supreme Secretary of AMORC, reflects on the extraordinary projects that have been accomplished at Rosicrucian Park since the 75th Anniversary of the Park in 2002.

In 2002, on the occasion of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of Rosicrucian Park, the Board of Directors of the English Grand Lodge announced the plans for the Future of Rosicrucian Park in a special issue of the Rosicrucian Digest. Some of the goals seemed formidable, however they were so important that we decided to include them all.

Today, most of these goals, plus many more, have been achieved, thanks to the exceptional vision and commitment of our Board and the generosity of thousands of Rosicrucian members around North America and the Caribbean.

This podcast describes some of the extraordinary projects that we have all accomplished together.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the preservation and perpetuation of Rosicrucian Park. Your support has made all of this possible!

I hope that each of you will visit or re-visit Rosicrucian Park soon, to experience its beauty and tranquility. We look forward to welcoming you! With sincere appreciation for your support and my warmest wishes for Peace Profound,

Sincerely and fraternally,

Julie Scott Grand Master

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.
