Christian Rosenkreuz (1378 - 1484) is the possibly legendary founder of the Rosicrucian Order. The first anonymous public document on the Rosicrucian Order is the Fama Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis which appeared in 1614 in Cassel (Germany) followed in 1615 by the Confessio Fraternitatis (issued with Fama (...)). In 1616 appears the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz which introduces for the fist time the name Christian Rosenkreutz.

According to legend, Christian Rosenkreuz discovered and learned the Secret Wisdom through a pilgramage to the East in the 15th century; founded the "Rosicrucian Fraternity" having him (Father C.R.C.) as the Head of the Order. Under his direction a Temple, called "The Temple of the Holy Spirit", was builded. His body was discovered by a Brother of the Order, in a perfect state of conservation, 120 years after his death (which occured in absolute secrecy) - as C.R.C. had predicted - in a chamber erected by himself as a compendium of the universe.

C.R.C. body was found intact in this microcosmos chamber in 1604, the same year the last "naked eye" supernova (SN 1604) till today was observed in our galaxy Milky Way [1].
