Christian Rosenkreuz

Christian Rosenkreuz (Rosenkreutz), was called founder of the Rosae Crucis. His name meaning he was  "Christed" and Rosenkreutz being German for rose cross.
Christian Rosenkreuz (Rosenkreutz), was called founder of the Rosae Crucis. ” His very name is an embodiment of the manner and the means by which the present day man is transformed into the Divine Superman. This symbol,
“Christian Rosen Kreuz”
[The] Christian Rose Cross,
shows the end and aim of human evolution, the road to be traveled, and the means whereby that end is gained.” – The
Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception By
Max Heindel

“In the thirteenth century a high spiritual teacher, having the symbolical name Christian Rosenkreuz–Christian: Rose: Cross–appeared in Europe to commence that work. He founded the mysterious Order of Rosicrucians with the object of throwing occult light upon the misunderstood Christian Religion and to explain the mystery of Life and Being from the scientific standpoint in harmony with Religion.”- The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception By Max Heindel

There no evidence he ever lived he is most likely allegorical. His creation was probably by the secret societies to hide the fact that the Rosicrucian teaching is not new just the same mystery school teachings.

He is presented as the arthur in three manifestos that were published early in the 17th century.

Fama Fraternitatis (published 1614 in Kassel, Germany) This manifesto introduced the founder, “Frater C.R.C.”

Confessio Fraternitatis (published 1615 in Kassel, Germany)

The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz (published 1616 in Strasbourg, Germany) It was written in German, and its title was Chymische Hochzeit Christiani Rosencreutz anno 1459.

Johann Valentin Andreae claimed to be the author of, The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, in his autobiography. Andrea, often considered as the true founder Rosicrucian said it was,  “youthful literary trifle”, meant as a satire. -Life, p. 10


Christian Rosenkreutz looks exactly like Jacques De Molay, the last grandmaster of the Knights Templar.
