A.M.O.R.C. Master Monographs Index
Introduction The Rosicrucian Monographs or Personal Sanctum Study Lessons (as they are sometimes called by AMORC) were first written in the beginning of the 20th century (before the 1930s) by Harvey Spencer Lewis, founder of AMORC, and subsequently updated by his successors to stay current with advancements in science, language, and culture.
I would like to recommend further studies on the Rosicrucian Tradition provided in my eBooks on Rosicrucian Metaphysics available on Scribd.

A.M.O.R.C.'s Rosicrucian Monographs These teachings are part of the Rosicrucian Monographs.These are not the only subjects covered by the Rosicrucian system. The list contained here, which should be perceived as unofficial, is adapted from the Rosicrucian Home Study Lessons section of the Web version of the Mastery of Life published by the English Grand Lodge for the Americas also including information from my private library of Master Monographs.
A.M.O.R.C.'s Grade Structure The AMORC grades, or as they called, Degrees, are arranged into four sections or groups:
Postulant section - That is the introductory section and includes the Mandamus explaining the system of study and basic concepts. Neophyte section - That is the basic section and includes three degrees. Temple section – That is the intermediate section and includes eight degrees. After the year 2000, there was a reformation of the degrees, and their titles changed as well as the name of this section. Illuminati section – That is the advanced section and includes four degrees. After the year 2000, their titles changed. For instance, the Illuminati section was split in three sections: The Illuminati proper section, including the 9th, 10th, and 11th degrees. The Esoteric Hierarchy section, including the 12th degree as an introduction to a new entire new section called the Ordo Summum Bonum Ordo Summun Bonun section - That section has a subsection entitled the Planes, which includes another set of nine degrees. The "Plane" degrees were created by HSL's son Ralph Maxwell Lewis (1904–1987), initiate name: Sar Validivar, during his period as AMORC Imperator (1939 to 1987). Those degrees are purely philosophical in nature and discuss the nature of the Cosmic and its Natural Laws.
Postulant (8 Mandamus) section
The word Mandamus, which appears on the cover of each monograph, designates the especial mandate that the student receive as Postulant to the Order and the monographs explain the system of study and basic concepts and terminology used in the degrees ahead.
Neophyte section Like in ancient times, if a person wanted to study the great mysteries of the world, they would have to petition for admittance as a student and become a Neophyte. The Neophyte would be granted admittance to the Atrium, or reception chamber to the temple. In the Atrium the Neophyte would receive the preliminary instructions and beginning teachings, before they would be allowed entry into the temple. Following ancient times the Rosicrucian monographs are called Atrium lessons, and beginning Rosicrucian students are called Neophytes.
Introductory lessons Presents basic Rosicrucian concepts that can be applied in practical ways. One of the first things the students will learn as a Neophyte is that they are a dual being. In addition to the student's five physical senses, the student also has a psychic sense. The exercises in these introductory lessons are designed to gradually awaken and develop the psychic faculty. The exercises allow the students to discover for themselves through direct experience how these principles work. Topics included:

As the students develop their body's psychic centres, the student will gradually awaken psychic faculties, such as the ability to perceive the aura. the student will also experience the mystical effect of sounds.
