Our Published Books and Literature
The Rosycross Press
The Rosycross Press is based in Haarlem, The Netherlands. It publishes on behalf of the School of the Golden Rosycross, known internationally as the Lectorium Rosicrucianujm.
This is a Gnostic Spiritual school, which aims to guide its pupils through an inner process of renewal and transformation, which has been taught in mystery schools throughout the ages.
A Bridge to Understanding
The two main authors, whose works are published by the Rosycross Press, Jan Van Rijckenborgh and Cathrose de Petri, devoted their lives to forming this School. To build a bridge of understganding between the School's goal and the mind of the interested people they expressed the essential teachings of the Spirit-Soul rebirth in all kinds of different ways. The method they taught were adapted to modern times.
Their teachings were not new, but have been handed down - though often in veiled form - ever since the dawn of human development, and were also essentially the same as those of earlier groups, such as the Essenes, the Christian Gnostic, the Manichaeans and the Cathars, to name but a few.
