The Mystery of the Count of St. Germain and Christian Rosenkreutz

Dear Brothers and Sisters, I have a wonderful topic to discuss in our school. I think all of us, maybe not all, are familiar with the individual of Christian Rosenkreutz and his significance in the spiritual movement of Spiritual Science (e.g., Anthroposophy), as well as our school here. In some stories, St. Germain was reportedly at the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and was the unknown individual known as the "Professor" who urged the men gathered at Independence Hall to go forward with the signing of the document and start the American Revolutionary War and their search for independence. Also, he was supposedly selected to be on a special committee by the Continental Congress in 1775 to create the design of the American flag. Which was then given to Betsy Ross to execute. Yet, despite all these amazing and tantalizing stories one question remains in my mind. Rudolf Steiner spoke hardly anything about St. Germain, but had written dozens of lectures on his earlier incarnation as Christian Rosenkreutz and St. John the Divine (Lazarus). So my question is to Eugene and our school here, was Rudolf Steiner given guidance to not speak about St. Germain? And if that is the case, why?

One remarkable thing that we find about the St. Germain is found from the following book titled the "The Temple Legend" by Rudolf Steiner:

"What the Whitsuntide Festival symbolizes, the underlying principle from which it receives its deep inner meaning, is preserved in a single manuscript copy which is to be found in the Vatican Library, where it is guarded with the greatest care. To be sure, no mention is made of Whitsuntide in this manuscript, but it certainly tells of that for which Whitsuntide is only the outer symbol. Hardly anyone has seen this manuscript, unless he has been initiated into the deepest secrets of the Catholic Church, or has been able to read it in the Astral Light. One copy is possessed by a personality who has been very much misunderstood in the world, but who is beginning to interest today's historians. I could equally well have said ‘was possessed’ instead of ‘is possessed’, but it would thereby cause a lack of clarity. Therefore I say again: a copy is in the possession of the Count of St. Germain, who is the only existing source of information about it."

Could this be a hint from Rudolf Steiner? And if it is, what is this document? What is its meaning and why did the St. Germain have access to it?

  2. The Mysterious Manuscript

    Dear Sean,

       The question about this manuscript is very difficult to explore. As you can see, the only evidence given here is about 'initiation into the deepest  secrets of the Catholic Church, or one who can read it in the Astral Light.  : "Hardly anyone has seen this manuscript, unless he has been initiated into the deepest secrets of the Catholic Church, or has been able to read it in the Astral Light."

    And that which follows give us the clue to the puzzle:

    "I could equally well have said ‘was possessed’ instead of ‘is possessed’, but it would thereby cause a lack of clarity. Therefore I say again: a copy is in the possession of the Count of St. Germain, who is the only existing source of information about it."

    The Count of St. Germain is the author of the Document. And that solves the riddle because only he can both possesses it and 'to have possessed' the 'one copy'.

    Does that help you solve the riddle?

    What I think is most remarkable is that the inference is that the document is:  known to have a secret importance, or is known to be composed by a remarkable and yet unknown author, and is also very much valued by the Church. But I believe he is saying by 'astral light', that they only can admire it, but cannot decipher it's secrets yet.  The secret is only known by the author, and further, only he/she, or anyone 'initiated' by him can do that and then can decipher it.
