Chronological list of groups formed for the study of Rosicrucianism and related subjects.

Chronological list of Rosicrucianism study groups.

Listed below is a chronological list of study groups related to Rosacrucianism, the Rosy Cross and related studies.

Many of these groups generally speak of a lineal descent from earlier branches of the ancient Rosicrucian Order in England, France, Egypt, or other countries. However, some groups speak of a spiritual affiliation with a true and invisible Rosicrucian Order.

Note there are other Rosicrucian groups not listed here. Some do not use the name "Rosicrucian" to name themselves. Some groups listed may have been dissolved and are no longer operating.
