Man’s path in life – a journey into the unexpected? How to find meaning and direction, how to find an inner compass? It has become clear to us in our times that faith in science and technology alone is not sufficient.
Four hundred years ago (1614) a small work appeared called Fama Fraternitatis, composed by a circle of learned friends in Tübingen which included Tobias Hess, Johann Valentin Andreae and others. This book provoked a storm of controversy throughout Europe but also found many enthusiastic supporters. It appeared at a time when the world of science began to struggle free from the yoke of religion. The Fama Fraternitatis describes the journey of a man (Christian Rosenkreuz) attempting to achievea synthesis between knowledge, faith and artistic expression – only to reach into his inner self.
Reinhard Eichelbeck and Wolfgang Jung examine the meaning, background and influenceof this enigmatic work and turn to artists, scientists and spiritual seekers who speak of inspiration, daring, creativity and inner quiet. As such this film hopes to contribute to the modern debate on perspective of the future.
This film opens in the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica Amsterdam and benefited from the expertise of library director Esther Ritman and library founder Joost Ritman, who were asked to join the advisory committee.

DIVINE WISDOM – DIVINE NATURE
The Message of the Rosicrucian Manifestoes in the Visual Language of the Seventeenth Century.
This lavishly illustrated work, published on the occasion of the fourth centenary of the Rosicrucian Manifestoes in 2014-2016, focusses on an extraordinary range of images which appeared in Germany in the early 17th century.
The illustrations partly originated in a circle of artists and thinkers who were directly inspired by the Rosicrucian Manifestoes and also by similar sources expressing the relationship between God and Nature, the macrocosm and the microcosm.
The images were included in the works of several authors: Heinrich Khunrath, Daniel Mögling, Stephan Michelspacher, Robert Fludd and Michael Maier. The books themselves were published in various cities in Germany: Hanau, Frankfurt, Augsburg and Oppenheim. It is probably no coincidence that the majority of the works came out in the years 1616-1618, after the publication of the Rosicrucian Manifestoes.
Divine Wisdom – Divine Nature opens with a general introductory part on the people behind the Rosicrucian Manifestoes and continues with a discussion of the images in the works of these five authors, at least four of whom claimed allegiance to the ideals and aspirations of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood.
This book is also available in German or as ebook in English or German.
