It has been over 400 years since the first Rosicrucian pamphlets were published, on the eve of the Thirty Years’ War. Now, in the 21st century, Rosicrucianism continues to thrive and remain relevant. Frater Robert Gordon joins me in the first episode of season five to discuss his new book, 21st Century Rosicrucianism.
Frater Robert received a B.A. (Hons) in Anthropology from the University of Melbourne and an M.A. in Museum Studies from University College London. His vast experience includes professionally managing the St Paul’s Institute (an ethics think tank run by St Paul’s Cathedral in London), working for the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace, and working for the Garden Museum (an independent museum devoted to the legacy of John Tradescant and the final resting place of Elias Ashmole).
He has been practicing Rosicrucianism for over 20 years and is an active member of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia, the Order of the Rose and Cross, and A.E. Waite’s Fellowship of the Rosy Cross.
