Early Pennsylvania Rosicrucians, Pietists, and Friends
"The Holy Experiement, The Message to the World from Pennsylvania"
So reads the title of a huge folio book of hand printed sheaves and full color plates in the PRS collection. The mystic background of Philadelphia, and especially Germantown, will be shown as perpetuating the utopian ideals of such great figures as Pico della Mirandola, John Dee, Freancis Bacon, Johann Valentin Andreae, Christoph Schlegel, Duke August of Brunswick, Jakob Spener, Jakob Boehme, William Penn, Johannes Kelpius, and Benjamin Franklin. Slides will be shown commemorating the 300th anniversary of Germantown, Pennsylvania.
