The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz - translated by Joscelyn GodwinThe Chemical Wedding
of Christian Rosenkreutz
(also known as
The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz)

Translated by Joscelyn Godwin
Introduction and commentary by Adam MacLean

The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, often looked upon as the 'third Rosicrucian manifesto,' has an entirely different tone from the other Rosicrucian documents. Unlike the Rosicrucian manifestos, which address the transformation of society, The Chemical Wedding is concerned with the inner transformation of the soul. It is a deeply interior work, one which asks the reader to step into its world of symbols and walk with Christian Rosenkreutz along his path of transformation.

The Chemical Wedding was first published in German at Strasbourg in the year 1616. However, it is supposed to have existed in manuscript as early as 1601-2. It was translated into English for the first time in 1690 by E. Foxcroft.

Despite its importance as a key text of the Western esoteric traditions, this is the first ever contemporary English translation, made especially for this edition by Joscelyn Godwin. Also included in this edition is an introduction and commentary by Adam McLean, which illuminates the transformative symbolism of this central Rosicrucian document.
