The aim of the Society is to afford mutual aid and encouragement in working out the great problems of Life; and in searching out the secrets of Nature; to facilitate the study of the system of Philosophy founded upon the Kaballah and the doctrine of Hermes Trismegistus, which was inculcated by the original Fratres Rosae Crucis, A.D. 1450; and to investigate the meaning and symbolism of all that now remains of the wisdom, art and literature of the ancient world.

Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis
The SRICF (Rosicrucian Society of the United States) is an independent Christian society. Admission is limited to Master Masons who are members in good standing of a regular and duly constituted Masonic Lodge and who accept and believe in the fundamental principles of the Christian faith. It was formed on September 21, 1880, by three Colleges chartered within the previous ten months by the Society in Scotland.
The Societas Rosicruciana does not constitute just another interesting degree in Freemasonry, to be acquired in the course of ordinary Masonic progress. It is something beyond and outside Freemasonry. The Society is the ideal forum for Masons who wish to extend their contemplation of the hidden mysteries of Nature and Science, and to investigate the meaning and symbolism of all that now remains of the wisdom, art and literature of the Ancient World.
Each College is limited to 72 members.
Membership in the SRICF is by invitation.
