3.0 out of 5 stars Kessinger, great! SRCA, mediocre., November 26, 2001
This review is from: Rituals of the First Four Grades: Societatis Rosicrucianæ Rebpub Conf¿d America (Paperback)
My hat's off to Kessinger Publishing for making this book available. Like their other reprints, most of this book is a facsimile of the original document. This makes part of the degrees difficult to read, but it's a lot better than them trying to interpret a lousy copy and fouling up the ritual.
As for the content itself, I have to say that the ritual strikes me as extremely un-inspired. I really hope that the SRIA and other Masonic Rosicrucean organizations have better rituals to work with, because I found it weak and lacking in many places.
Addendum: I have to add, months later, that like all ritual, it really can't be truly evaluated until experienced. The three Masonic blue lodge degrees, for instance, must seem very boring when read, but are life-changing and profound when experienced. Please take my previous review with a grain of salt, and approach this work (like all others) with an open mind.
