aim of the Society is to afford mutual aid and encouragement in working
out the great problems of Life; and in searching out the secrets
of Nature; to facilitate the study of the system of Philosophy founded
upon the Kaballah and the doctrine of Hermes Trismegistus, which
was inculcated by the original Fratres Rosae Crucis, A.D. 1450; and
to investigate the meaning and symbolism of all that now remains
of the wisdom, art and literature of the ancient world.
