In the Name of the Lord of the Universe, hear you all our Declamatio!
However, despite this name change H∴O∴N∴A∴ still officially formed a formal jurisdiction under the international Order community (the ROSICRUCIAN ORDER OF ALPHA ET OMEGA), although for all practical purposes it had developed an autonomous body which had set itself out to implement the General Reformation following unique Swedish and Scandinavian requirements. In addition to the continuous offering of traditional initiation and teaching, all of its activities centered on the manifestation of a Reformatio Minore Anno 2010, a work that was launched in conjunction with Sol entering Capricorn in 2007, and which now has been completed when Sol has entered Aries in 2014. A seed was planted that has been germinating for seven years and now is fully blooming into a glorious Rose.
The initiatory system and curriculum of the Order has, in the name of the Lesser Reformation, had to be substantially revised and put through necessary correction to make our tradition practically applicable according to the guidelines of the General Reformation of 1999, whilst having been made backward compatible with the previous General Reformation anno 1888. All Grades have been revised and the signs and passwords, which can be found in published literature, replaced with new that are unique for the Scandinavian jurisdiction, in order to restore the hermetic vessel and create a self-subsistent egregore. Moreover, the curriculum has also substantially been developed and expanded to meet the needs of the Scandinavian member to receive a traditional study material of highest quality, regardless of where he is studying. Thus, Scandinavian students are presented a unique and traditional curriculum without parallel.
During these seven years, and in the name of H∴O∴N∴A∴, the Scandinavian jurisdiction has passively observed how the general Golden Dawn Community as a whole has slowly but surely become obsessed by counter-traditional powers, tendencies that has not spared the international order community of which the Scandinavian jurisdiction has formed a part. The international Golden Dawn community has succumbed to an increasingly widespread vulgarization, profanation and commercialisation. These are tendencies that the Scandinavian jurisdiction has rejected and actively opposed. In parallel to this, H∴O∴N∴A∴ has increasingly been embracing an explicitly traditionalist position, which over time has made it difficult for the Scandinavian jurisdiction to come to terms with certain developments in the order community as a whole, and each body has slowly grown apart as a result of this. Meanwhile, our Order has rediscovered its original Scandinavian or HYPERBOREAN affiliation.
The time has come for us to break all our previous relations, strings, alliances and allegiances with the international Golden Dawn Community, in whatever form, to protect the Scandinavian H∴O∴N∴A∴ from the counter-traditional disease and in order to preserve the tradition immaculate. This process started properly when Sol entered Capricorn in 2013, when our Order broke away from the parent organisation, exactly six years after H∴O∴N∴A∴ had decided to re-emerge from the shadows and unlock its Temple doors for all serious candidates. Six years following our announcement of the Praedicatio Fraternitatis, we now want to announce our Declamatio, which on all accounts confirms our previous manifesto, however, observing the following measures that we have been forced to undertake:
We declare that Sol has entered Aries in the year of our Lord 2014, and that this also marks the consummated manifestation of the HERMETIC ORDER OF THE NASCENT AURORA in the Outer as in all respects an independent and autonomous fraternity. Our Order has thus set as its primary mission in Scandinavia to manifest a:
In order to manifest this new orientation in our egregore and to enshrine its independency and integrity we hereby proclaim that our former Temple, originally authorized by the ROSICRUCIAN ORDER OF ALPHA ET OMEGA when Sol entered into Aries in 1997, officially known as the ALPHA ET OMEGA TEMPLE NO. 9 OF THE NASCENT AURORA, has been duly closed and permanently dismantled. In its place, raised from the ashes of the former Temple, we herewith declare the opening of a new and independent Scandinavian Mother Temple to constitute the core working of the H∴O∴N∴A∴, whose name and number shall be sealed and protected from the gaze of the outer world. This new HYPERBOREAN Mother Temple in the Outer Order is fully authorised and has a legitimate charter issued by our Inner or Second Order’s Archon Basileus, acting as an Adeptus Exemptus. Furthermore, our Order possesses all the privileges and rights through our Chief Officer, legally installed according to custom and tradition.
However, H∴O∴N∴A∴ is not a new fraternity as it constitutes an unbroken link to and serves to be a direct continuation of the original Temple founded in 1997, which in turn was constituted as a legitimate and direct lineal descendant of the original HERMETIC ORDER OF THE G∴D∴ founded 1888 in London by S.L. MacGregor Mathers and William Wynn Westcott, which in 1906 duly renamed it as the ROSICRUCIAN ORDER OF A∴O∴, a Order which was legitimately resurrected in Paris in 1993, authorized by two Adepti Exempti in London, England. In 1998, our Temple along with another Swedish Temple, became authorized by an envoy from the Ahathôor Temple No. 7 in Paris which officially made it an ALPHA ET OMEGA Temple. Our new Mother Temple of 2014, has been raised on the foundations of our discontinued Temple from 1997.
With our Declamatio we also want to announce that our Order has taken the initiative, together with other kindred fraternities around the world, to found an international Confederation of independent and autonomous Temples and Fraternities. All members of this Rosicrucian Confederation are working along the lines of the Golden Dawn tradition specifically and in Hermetic, Qabalistic and Rosicrucian traditions in general, from a traditionalist ethos. Thus, only because we have formally severed all ties with our former international parent organization and renounced the counter-tradition, this does not entail that the H∴O∴N∴A∴ has isolated itself from the rest of the community; let it be known that our Order constitutes a link in a fraternal chain of several traditional Orders which extends far beyond our domestic HYPERBOREA.
Let it be known to our domestic HYPERBOREAN readers that the Mother Temple primarily recruits its members from the West of Sweden, the Regions Västra Götaland and Halland. Additionally, we require that our candidates undergo a period of probation before their admission as a member of the H∴O∴N∴A∴. Candidates who live elsewhere, and must travel long distances for their initiation, are offered studies by correspondence and training for distance members administered by our Mother Temple, with opportunities for traditional initiation and instruction of the same high quality as that provided for our local members. Anyone wishing to get more information about membership in the H∴O∴N∴A∴ may send an inquiry to our Order Cancellarius at the following address:
