I”m very excited about my up and coming visit to the Rosicrucian Egyptian museum in San Jose California. As a writer, I feel it’s very important to submerse myself in the world I’m writing about. (The Creed Griffon Series ) San Jose, is not far from me as compared to Egypt or London. Therefore, without having to travel thousands of miles, get a bad passport photo, or ride a camel, there’s no better place to further my knowledge and education about ancient Egyptians – than the Rosicrucian.
The museum is said to be architecturally inspired by the Temple of Amun at Karnak, and houses
the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on exhibit in western North
America! I’ve pasted a picture of the museum’s dramatic entrance below. It is absolutely stunning! I can’t wait to see it in person! I’ll be taking many pictures for study purposes as well as posting them for readers – like me – who are captivated by this fascinating civilization.
The name of the Rosicrucian is quite a mouthful and tended to inspire a little curiosity in me as to its meaning… For those of you interested, according to Wikipedia the term Rosicrucian is: “a generic term referring to studies or membership within a philosophical secret society said to have been founded in late medieval Germany by Christian Rosenkreuz. It holds a doctrine or theology
“built on esoteric truths of the ancient past”, which, “concealed from
the average man, provide insight into nature, the physical universe and
the spiritual realm.” Rosicrucianism is symbolized by the Rosy Cross.”
