The Rosicrucianism that developed at the beginning of the Fifteenth Century did not spring into existence from nowhere.
In this episode we jump far back in time to the origins of the Vedic traditions and explore the early origins of the shamanic fire magic movement that eventually gave birth to Rosicrucianism, as well as setting the scene for future episodes on Alexandrian Syncretism, Hermeticism, Hinduism and Yoga.
