‘DIVINE WISDOM – DIVINE NATURE’ IN POLAND

Exhibition of Divine Wisdom - Divine Nature in Krakow, Poland
Video – Impression of the exhibition

The exhibition Divine Wisdom – Divine Nature. The Visual Language of the Rosicrucians in the 17th Century opened in the Collegium Maius of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, on 3 October 2016. Around 2000 people visited the exhibition in the beautiful museum, and there were many enthusiastic reactions. Many visitors felt as if the exhibition and its message set their hearts on fire, as they were filled with inspiration. The illustrations in the exhibition partly originated in a circle of artists and philosophers who were directly inspired by the Rosicrucian Manifestoes as well as by similar sources expressing the relationship between God and Nature, the macrocosm and the microcosm.

IN THE HOUSE WITH THE HEADS

The Embassy of the Free Mind in the House with the Heads is a platform for free and contrarian thought. The Embassy offers room for exhibitions, tours, presentations, debates and conferences. The Ritman Library, with its wealth of knowledge and its unique collection, will be the vibrant heart of the Embassy of the Free Mind. The collection of some 25,000 books tells the story of the Western spiritual and philosophical tradition and is, like the House of the Heads itself, inseparably connected to Amsterdam and its history of free and open thinking. freedom of speech and freedom of the press. As in the Golden Age, the House with the Heads will welcome the free spirits and independent thinkers of yesterday, today and tomorrow, from the Netherlands and abroad and be a home to artists and scientists, entrepreneurs and anyone seeking and offering inspiration and power of thought.
