Default Islamic Origin of the Rose-Croix?

[img align=right][/img]
By Emile Dantinne

To know the history of the mysterious Order of the Rose-Croix, it is indispensable to refer to the ancient documents which attest to its existence in Europe at the beginning of the 17th century.

The most important of these documents and the earliest is entitled: Allegemeine und generale Reformation des gantzen weiten Welte,heneben der Fama Fraternitatis des löblichen Ordens des Rosenkreutzes an alle Gelehrte und Haupter Europae geschrieben …. This anonymous text of 147 pages in octavo appeared in Cassel from the printery of Wilhelm Wessel in 1614.
