The Order of the Temple of the Rosy
This Order of the Temple of the Rosy Cross was an organization of traditional
esoterism of West, founded in the bosom of the Theosophical
Society in 1912 but due to the First World
War, the activity was suspended .
Its main leaders were Annie
Besant, Marie Russak
and J. I.
Wedgwood. According with "The Vahan", (April 1912), the O.T.R.C., was
dedicated "to the study of the Mysteries, Rosicrucian, Cabal, Astrology, Masonry, Symbolism, Christian Ceremonial, Mystic Traditions and Occults of the West". And it added that: "To
confide in that such work serves as preliminary for the restoration of the missing Mysteries of Europe with the
decadence of Rome".
This ARO ⊕ has reconstituted the Temple of the Rosy Cross but our philosophical
orgins pre-date the American TRC to the 1760s by virtue of the high grade initiations of the Rose Cross Mysteries.
