About us

The Golden Dawn Research Trust is a co-operative of Adepts whose goal is to preserve the teachings, ritual, history, practices, documents, letters, and books of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (as it existed between the dates 1887-1930). The Research Trust is also interested in preserving the source material for the practices and teachings of the Golden Dawn. We are attempting to preserve this material so that the information contained therein may be inviolate and remain accessible to scholars now and in the future. The Research Trust has been and will be printing books by well-known historians and rare material from our Esoteric Archives.

Newly published is the first volume of the Ancient Texts of the Gold- und Rosenkreuzer. The book contains the first English translation of the Der Rosenkreuzer in seiner Blösse [The Rosicrucian Exposed] by Magister Pianco. Translated from 1781 Amsterdam edition by W.J. Songhurst. Also, the book contains a newly revised edition of Themis Aurea: The Laws of the Fraternity of the Rosie Cross by Michael Maier. Two editions have been produced and can be purchased on-line from our Store. Note supplies are very limited.
