Arrow Order of Christ

Around 1530, more than Eighty years before the publication of the first manifesto, the association of cross and rose already existed in Portugal in the Convent of the Order of Christ, home of the Knights Templar, later renamed Order of Christ. Three bocetes were, and still are, on the abóboda (vault) of the initiation room.. The rose can clearly be seen at the center of the cross..At the same time, a minor writing by Paracelsus called Prognosticatio Eximii Doctoris Paracelsi (1530), containing 32 prophecies with allegorical pictures surrounded by enigmatic texts, makes reference to an image of a double cross over an open rose; this is one of the examples used to prove the "Fraternity of the Rose Cross" Existed far earlier than 1614...

The Military Order of Christ (Ordem Militar de Cristo) previously the Royal Order of the Knights of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Real Ordem dos Cavaleiros de Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo) was the heritage of the Knights Templar in Portugal, after the suppression of the Templars in 1312. It was founded in 1319...The Cross of Lorraine consists of one vertical and two evenly spaced horizontal bars. It is a heraldic cross, used by the Dukes of Lorraine. René d’Anjou (also Duke of Lorraine 1431-1453) "was a major transmitter of the Hermetic tradition in Italy and had the cross of Lorraine as his personal sigil".. This cross is related to the Crusader's cross, and the six globes of the Medici family... made me think of what you once told me: "In 5 years the family will be completely legitimate." That was 7 years ago.. There would be no way, Michael... no way you could ever forgive me not with this Sicilian thing that's been going on for 2,000 years...
