Description

The 1616 classic treasure of Western esoteric wisdom, The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, is one of three key manifestos of the Rosicrucians and alchemists. It narrates a story of Christian Rosenkreutz, who was invited to a miraculous castle to assist in the 'chemical wedding' of the king and the queen.

Filled with alchemical metaphors, coded words and images, Dennis Klocek reveals the profound meaning behind the colourful and surprising events throughout the seven-day 'initiation' of Christian Rosenkreutz.

Each chapter is devoted to one of the seven days, featuring an overview followed by fresh translations of the original text. Illuminated by Klocek's comprehensive and unique commentaries, this book offers an accessible introduction to the real meaning behind the Rosicrucian path of inner development.
