SOCIETAS ROTAE FULGENTIS
The SRF was the inner body of an antiquarian society from which the Aurum Solis was formed.
THE GUILD OF THE BLAZING WHEEL
The Guild of the Blazing Wheel embodies the functional workings of an inner and reconstituted body of the Order Astrum Sophiae. The Guild therefore expresses itself by and through the Third Hall rites of the Temenos of the Adepti and the rites of the Telesterion of the Adepti. This series of five initiatory rites, and corresponding curriculum, form a vital body of degrees and study within the Third Hall proper. The transmission of these rites must always follow their proper sequence and only be conferred on an adept who has received the Rite of Elevation via the Palingenesis.
George K. Stanton
George K. Stanton, a senior member of the Societas Rotae Fulgentis along with Charles Kingsgold, constituted the Aurum Solis in 1897. He was the first Warden (Grand Master) of the Order.
