About other Rosicrucian groups

There are a number of web pages using the word "rosicrucian" in their name. Some are created by small groups who describe themselves as rosicrucian, while others are created by private individuals who simply have an interest in rosicrucianism. We're often asked if these other web sites are affiliated with the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC. The answer is: A few of them are, but most are not.

The word "rosicrucian" is so old it cannot be trademarked, so other groups cannot be prevented from using it. However, the term "AMORC" in our name, Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, identifies us as the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, and no other group can use the word "AMORC" in its name.

AMORC has been operating since 1915, and we have affiliated lodges and chapters all over the world. Many of the other "rosicrucian" groups appearing on the web have been created in just the past few years, and appear to have no physical headquarters or facilities. Further, their philosophies may vary widely from those of AMORC. It has long been AMORC policy to not comment on, judge or evaluate the concepts, techniques or claims of other organizations. Through your own investigation, you will come to evaluate for yourself the worthiness of an organization.

This web site contains links to official AMORC web sites in various languages. Any other web sites are NOT affiliated with our organization, even though their name may be similar, or the content of their web page may mimic ours. If you're not sure whether a particular web page is associated with our organization, feel free to e-mail the webmaster to ask about it.
