Among the large number of Masonic allied structures found in the United States, one of them is a society called the Societas Rosicruciana. The 18° degree of the Scottish Rite is called the Knight Rose Cross. This degree is actually connected to symbolic elements of the famous fraternity of the Rose Cross
One of the unkwon symbols from the Rose-Cross Tradition is the relation between the symbols of the cross, the rose and the pyramid.
It is around 1755 in Germany that different groups called the Golden Cross, and the Rosy Cross appeared. At this time, none of these groups were real parts of Freemasonry.
