The True and Invisible Rosicrucian Order


by Paul Foster Case

A revised text of the complete Rosicrucian material offered by the Builders of the Adytum (BOTA), the organization founded by Case.

Ten Rosicrucian Grades are presented with the thirty-two paths of initiation.

This is a thorough presentation of the Rosicrucian system of Initiation by Dr. Paul Foster Case. He explains that Rosicrucianism is based not upon earthy organizations, but on personal unfoldment, and clearly describes the distinctive marks of a Rosicrucian. The treatise is divided into two main parts by Dr. Case. The first is a careful examination and interpretation of the principle Rosicrucian manifestoes, the Fama Fraternitatis and the Confessio Fraternitatis. The second part is an explanation of the Rosicrucian Grade system, as applied to the diagram of the Tree of Life and Tarot attributions. By participating in the outlined procedures, aspirants are put on the right track of preparing themselves for union with the Higher Self, which may or may not include group work with an outer order or fraternity.
