    PREFACE BY THE TRANSLATOR
    Announcing the Order

    In 1614, 1615 and 1616 the renowned works Fama Frater-
    nitatis

    1
    , Confessio Fraternitatis

    2 and the Chymische Hochzeit
    Christiani Rosenkreutz Anno 14593 appeared in Germany.
    These writings referred to the existence of the Rosicrucian
    Order in Europe and were succeeded by a declaration that was
    attached to the walls of Paris in 1623. Its contents were as follows:
    “We, the representatives of the Highest Council of the Rose
    Cross reside visibly and invisibly in this city, at the grace of the
    Most High, to the heart of which the righteous turn. Without
    books or signs we speak, and this we learn to others as well, in
    all the languages of the countries where we want to stay, to
    liberate the human beings, our equals, from deadly errors.
    If ever someone wants to meet us out of sheer curiosity, he will never make contact with us. However, when his will urges him
    to have himself registered in the file of our Fraternity, then we,
    who can see through thoughts, shall show him that we truly
    keep our promises. Thus we do not state the location where we
    reside in this city, because the thoughts added to the genuine
    will of the reader will enable him to get to know us, and us to get to know him.”

    1 ‘Fama fraternitatis Roseae Crucis oder Die Bruderschaft des Ordens
    der Rosenkreuzer’, Cassel, 1614.

    2 ‘Confession oder Bekandnusz, der Societet und Brtiderschafft R.C. An die Gelehrten Europae’, Cassel, 1615.

    3 ‘Chymische Hochzeit Christiani Rosenkreutz Anno 1459’,
    Straatsburg, 1616.

     

    Afterwards many writings have seen the light, pro and contra
    the Rosicrucians.

    How the Irish Saved Civilization

     

     

    How The Irish Saved Civilization: The Untold Story of Ireland’s Heroic Role from the Fall of Rome to the Rise of Medieval Europe is a non-fiction historical book written by Thomas Cahill.

    Cahill argues a case for the Irish people‘s critical role in preserving Western Civilization from utter destruction by the Huns and the Germanic tribes (VisigothsFranksAnglesSaxonsOstrogoths, etc.). The book presents Western history from the collapse of the Roman Empire and the pivotal role played by members of the clergy at the time. A particular focus is placed upon Saint Patrick. The book details his early struggles through slavery, mirroring much of the content in The Confession of Saint Patrick. Initial portions of the book examine Ireland before the arrivals of Patrick and Saint Augustine of Canterbury. Particular focus is placed upon Saint Columba, the monks he trained, and the monasteries he set up in the Hiberno-Scottish mission. These holy men, according to Cahill, “single-handedly refounded European civilization throughout the continent.” (p. 4)
