Goodbye Mr Mackenzie[edit]

I have removed a reference in the introduction to Kenneth Mackenzie being a founder member of the SRIA as being plain wrong. He was an early member but not a founder. --Justificatus (talk) 10:52, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

History[edit]

I have altered the History section to reflect the fact that the SRIA is not in fact derived from the SRIS. Also, no-one in the SRIA claims that there is a verifiable historical link to the original Rosicrucian brotherhood - which after all is not a verified historical entity. --Justificatus (talk) 10:44, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Modern Times[edit]

I have altered this to reflect the fact that the SRIA has led to the formation of other organisations, not just the SRICF (with which it is still in amity) and the SRIAm (with which it is not).--Justificatus (talk) 10:59, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

SRIS[edit]

Given that the SRIA is derived (as a kind of Daughter Order) from the Societas Rosicruciana in Scotia, should there not perhaps also be a link to a wikipage on this venerable and still-existing Order? Nuttyskin 21:35, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

The SRIA is not derived from the SRIS. The SRIA is (purported to have) derived from a scottish Rosicrucian order which bore no relation to the SRIS. The modern organisation of the SRIS is in fact formed from the first college of the SRIA to be chartered in Edinburgh - so in actual fact it is the SRIS that derives from the SRIA not the other way round. Please see my remarks on "History." --Justificatus (talk) 10:44, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

There is an article, but frankly, as they're both short, they should probably be combined. I'll ask on the Project page. MSJapan 04:40, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

My apologies for the comment I made in 2006: evidently the Daughter relationship runs the other way; however it was based on all the information then available to the casually interested Internet user. Is there in fact any evidence for this purported order, or did the SRIA simply pop up in a typically Rosicrucian kind of way?

Might as well be unsourced....[edit]

Four pages out of four books, woth on ISBNs or any other publication info? They don't even meet RS. MSJapan (talk) 06:19, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
