Rosicrucian monographs

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Rosicrucian Monographs or Home Study Lessons (as they are sometimes called by AMORC) were written in the beginning of the 20th century (before 1930s) by Harvey Spencer Lewis, founder of AMORC.


The monographs explain the Rosicrucian teachings as they were perceived by H. Spencer Lewis. Later others edited and updated the monographs.

The monographs are printed as small booklets but they are not available to the general public. Only members of certain Rosicrucian orders may have access to these documents. Their content is generally considered confidential.

Although at first the monographs were exclusive to AMORC, today they are also available by other Rosicrucian orders which began as "forks" from AMORC.

For example, the Confraternity of the Rose Cross (CR+C) says that it offers the old Lewis' monographs, without the newer modifications and updates by AMORC. The CR+C monographs include footnotes written by Gary L. Stewart.

The monographs of AMORC have been updated with new discoveries, clarified to be better understood by today's people and modernised.

A description of the Rosicrucian Monographs available by AMORC is included in the AMORC's Mastery of Life document.
