Ceremony for the degree of Sublime Philosopher of the Valley of Kab, 86

Dit Amerikaanse rituaal dateert uit de tweede helft van de negentiende eeuw.

We have the Sublime Rose of the Valley of Kab. The Priests of Memphis consecrate a Rose bush to Isis, herself termed the Queen of Roses. It has the same signification as the Acacia.
The Lotus or Mystic water-rose is consecrated to the Sun, and is an emblem of the same nature as Kneph, for bursting its seed vessel over the waters it propagates itself.
