The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz was first published in German at Strasbourg in the year 1616. However, it supposed to have existed in manuscript as early as 1459. It was translated into English for the first time in 1690 by E. Foxcroft. The present Greek translation represents a difficult initiative taken up by AKAKIA Publications and is solely based on the original text of the Foxcroft English edition of 1690. The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz (CRC) was published in 1616 in Strasbourg and its anonymous authorship is attributed to Johann Valentin Andreae, a 17 year old student, scholar of Philosophy and Christianism, and later, Lutheran Priest. It is the third of the original works by the mysterious "Fraternity of the Rose Cross" of the so-called Rosicrucians. The first two of these works were published as manifestos, while the third was an allegoric romance (story) divided into Seven Days, or Seven Journeys, likeGenesis, and tells us about the way Christian Rosenkreuz was invited to go to a wonderful castle full of miracles, in order to assist the Chymical Wedding of the king and the Queen, that is, the husband and the bride.
