Rosicrucianism is a Christian Hermetic tradition that can be traced to two manifestos, Fama Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis ("On the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross") and Confessio Fraternitatis ("Confession of a Brother"), both first published in Germany (in 1614 and 1615 respectively), and to The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz (1616). The circulation of these works sparked a wave of interest across Europe, a "Rosicrucian Enlightenment," as students and scholars published extensively on the mystery of the Order of the Rosy Cross and its teachings in the years that followed, which formed the foundation for continuing interest within occult circles that continues to the present day.
