The Rosicrucians is an extensively researched historical film based
on rare manuscripts found at Rosicrucian headquarters in California
and France. This video describes the intriguing story of this

includes quotations from important contributors to civilization

-"A scenic musical tour of beautiful Rosicrucian Park in San Jose, California."
