The Rosicrucian Order: An Ancient Secret Society Is Now on Facebook

April 27, 2021

Want to be a part of an Ancient Secret Society? No need for deep hoods or secret blood oaths, just a Facebook follow request.

The Rosicrucian Order, an ancient society, was formed in the early 1600s, catalysed from the 30-year-old war that ravaged Europe and shook its religious foundations. Since their inception, like most secret covens, they had chosen to be hidden. But the global landscape has transformed drastically since the ancient ages, and the need to be secretive in their work has also waned off. The society now operates in the open with its multiple Facebook groups and pages all over the world.

The Rosicrucian Order, an ancient society, was formed in the early 1600s, catalysed from the 30-year-old war that ravaged Europe and shook its religious foundations. Since their inception, like most secret covens, they had chosen to be hidden. But the global landscape has transformed drastically since the ancient ages, and the need to be secretive in their work has also waned off. The society now operates in the open with its multiple Facebook groups and pages all over the world. 

While not a religion itself, the group emerged from one of the biggest religious struggles in history. The Rosicrucian Order was formed to study and understand natural laws from around the globe. Its doctrine includes references to Hermeticism, Alchemy, Christian Mysticism and Kabbalah. In an interview, Julie Scott, The Grand Master of the Rosicrucian Order, told Mashable that owing to the religious sensitivity and the volatility of the period, the manifestos were published anonymously to avoid persecution. There is a lot of controversy surrounding the existence of the society itself, with claims of the manifestos being nothing more than elaborate science fiction. No individual could be tracked down belonging to the society because nobody would admit their association.

Whether whimsical or real, the society found its followers in the group that found the pamphlets to be true no matter their origins. 

The Order claims itself to be a philosophical organisation that has members from all across the world. It imposes no traditions on its members, and they are free to practice any religion. The Grand Master said that the Order studies natural laws to develop an intuition that is vital to living in harmony with them. They shifted into the public eye when they published ads in newspapers, clearly indicating the shift in their operational policy. There was no imminent threat to the Order anymore, and now they could function out in the open. 

Now, the group has multiple pages and private Facebook groups which anybody can request to join. They welcome new members and want them to see how they approach the world and its problems. Their FB page has more than 3,00,000 followers, and their biggest private Facebook group has over 17,000 members. It forms a community where people can communicate, set meetups, exchange literature in the form of memes. There are also local groups specific to geography.
