The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreuz

by Johann Valentine Andreae



Completed in 1603, first published in 1616 in German, The Chymical Wedding is a "spiritual diary" that presents in picture-symbols soul-eventsencountered by one who strives to follow the path leading to a real knowledge and experience of the spiritual world. Its autor, Johan Valentine Andreae, writes both an initiation narrative and an account of striving to know the nature and activity of those forces that work behind external happenings. It is, in fact, one of the first documents to represent the modern stream of Rosicrucianism. The main "test" in this fifth or Fridaysequence is in allowing the force of love to work on one without being misled by its sensory manifestations. This excerpts from The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreuz Anno 1459" by Arne Salomonssen, is reprinted through the king permission of R.S.C.Press-St. George Publications Fair Oaks, CA.
