Cryptic Meanings of Rosicrucian Headpieces and other such emblems

September 22 @ 17:00 - 18:30


A talk on Zoom by Peter Dawkins, about the cryptography and meanings, divine and human, of the headpieces, tailpieces, and other such emblems used in the Shakespeare First Folio, Francis Bacon’s De Dignitate et Augmentis Scientiarum, Duke Augustus’ Cryptomenytices et Cryptographiae, and other associated books by Bacon and the Rosy Cross Fraternity.

This talk is the fourth of the series of five talks on Rosicrucian Cryptography that are being given to celebrate the Quatercentenary of the publication of the great cipher manual, Cryptomenytices et Cryptographiae – a manual that provides keys to cryptography in publications such as the 1623 twin Folios, Francis Bacon’s De Dignitate et Augmentis Scientiarum and the Shakespeare First Folio, Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies, and other books authored by members of the Rosy Cross fraternity. It is a cryptography still useful (and used) today.

For further information and booking, please contact the Organiser (FBRT).

For those who attend the talk, there will be time for questions, answers and insights after the talk.

(This is Part 4 of the ‘Rosicrucian Cryptology’ series, and Part 9 of ‘The Rosicrucian Mysteries’ series.)
