Book: Ordo Rosae Rubeae Et Aureae Crucis by Arthur Edward WaiteThe second order or level of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, usually known by the initials R. R. et A. C. It included the grades of zelator adeptus minor, theoricus adeptus minor, adeptus major, and adeptus exemtis. The group was formed in 1892 by S. L. M. Macgregor Mathers, with William W. Westcott as Chief Adept. It was kept secret from some members of the Golden Dawn and accessible only to those who had passed through the basic four grades. The R. R. et A. C. gave instructions in ritual magic. The poet, W. B. Yeats was initiated into the 5°=6° grade January 20-21, 1893. During later controversies in 1901, Yeats privately published a pamphlet titled Is the R. R. et A. C. to Remain a Magical Order?
