“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.

Mystical Italy:

Join Imperator Christian Bernard and all of the Grand Masters from throughout the world for the 2019 AMORC World Convention taking place in the spectacular city of Rome August 14-18, 2019:

You can register for the Convention here: https://www.roma2019.amorc.it/en/

Following the World Convention in Rome, join Grand Master Julie Scott, other Rosicrucians, and friends on this journey of a lifetime through Sacred Italy.

As pilgrims in this mystical land, we will immerse ourselves in the world of the Sacred Feminine, of Francis of Assisi, the Pythagoreans, and the Neoplatonists, and will learn about many other traditions that have flourished here, including the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, and Normans.

Together we will explore Assisi, Venice, Florence, Ostia, Cumae, Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, the Amalfi Coast, and then on to Sicily (with cultures dating back to pre-history), to visit Palermo, Taormina, Catania, Syracuse, Calanissetta, and Agrigento.

In addition to its exceptional history and mysticism, we will also experience some of the most inspiring art and architecture in the world, its sacred symbolism, and the breathtaking beauty of this land.

Mystic Symbolism – Part 2: The Cross — Steven Armstrong, F.R.C.

This is part two of Steven Armstrong’s Mystic Symbolism podcast recording.

Symbolism can be defined as the investing of outward things or actions with an inner meaning, most often for the expression of religious or mystical ideas. Symbolism has a far greater presence in history and even contemporary culture than most realize. More than an ancient, esoteric discipline, it really serves as the centerpiece for an entirely new modern philosophy and understanding of the world. We hear from Steven Armstrong, Research Librarian at Rosicrucian Park on this fascinating subject. Part two investigates a case study in symbolism: the cross throughout history. (Part two of two)
