Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 631. "Rosicrucians. The earliest verifiable use of the term Rosicrucian, 'rosy cross,' is an anonymous text, Fama Fraternitatis ('Account of the Brotherhood'), which created a brief sensation in Germany upon its publication in 1614. It purports to recount the life of a medieval knight, Christian Rosenkreuz, who traveled to Morocco and the Near East to acquire secret wisdom and an elixer of life... The Fama was followed by another tract stating that initiation into the Rosicrucian Order was now being offered those prepared to join the fraternity of hidden adepts. The documents are now generally considered hoaxes or allegories; Rosenkreuz probably never existed, although he may have been based on the Swiss alchemist and physician Paracelsus. "

The idea was taken up by various thinkers including DESCARTES and COMENIUS but no organization was ever discovered. In the late nineteenth century various OCCULT GROUPS claiming to be Rosicrucians emerged... Scholars do not belive that any of these groups can be linked with an ancient SOCIETY. "
