The story behind the tomb

n 1604, a band of European brothers—the last remnants of a secret society—went on a journey to discover the hidden past of their mysterious order. Their explorations led them to a hidden underground vault, the final resting place of scholar and mystic Christian Rosenkreutz, the father of Rosicrucianism.

Tomb of Illumination sheds light on the life of Rosenkreutz and the earth-shattering changes that he helped bring about in realms such as politics, religion, science, literature, and social rights.

Additionally, this deluxe folio includes a full-color scale model of the fabled seven-sided, domed tomb of Christian Rosenkreutz, along with various miniaturized reproductions of his books, magical tools, and scientific instruments, all painstakingly drawn and colored by Jeff Hoke, creator of The Museum of Lost Wonder .

Tomb of Illumination is an 11.75 x 9.5-inch folio containing a 12-page, generously illustrated pamphlet, 11 pages of paper model sheets to cut and assemble, and an 8-page booklet of step-by-step instructions. Paper dolls of Father Rosenkreutz, Francis Bacon, Rene Descartes, Paracelsus, John Dee and other luminaries are included for staging historical re-enactments with the finished Tomb of Illumination model. .............................................................................................................................................................................. from Wonderella.com
