The Rosicrucian Digest is the official magazine of the Rosicrucian Order, and it has since its inception one hundred years ago highlighted AMORC members’ thoughts, amplified the Order’s teachings, and looked closer at the long and ongoing flow of the Rosicrucian Timeline.
The magazine began as The Triangle, and opened by celebrating Rosicrucian New Year 3274, which was March 20, 1921. H. Spencer Lewis, the Order’s founder, wrote: “Each issue will contain facts relating to the growth of the Order and its various Lodges in North America and other helpful ideas.”
In 1925, the magazine became The Mystic Triangle, and the following year began publishing monthly for readers. From 1929 to 1938, the magazine became The Rosicrucian Digest, before dropping the “The” and becoming what readers know today.
Along the way the content has expanded well beyond North America and “helpful ideas” to include commentary, fiction, poetry, art, and history from around the globe, to name some of the subject areas. At its core, the Rosicrucian Digest has remained a place for mystics to germinate their ideas and share them.
