ROSE-CROIX D'ORIENT
Many Martinists claim that Papus seems to have been involved in a lineage of genuine rosicrucian descendents. Some claim that this lineage contained men like Charles Nodier (1), Eliphas Levi, Count Golitzyn etc. This assertion seems rather doubtful. Anyway, fact is that Papus was one of the premier members of the OKR+C, of which he would become its president in 1898. George Lagreze (Mikael) was initiated in the "ROSE-CROIX D'ORIENT" by Démétrius Sémélas (Deon), co-founder of the "L'ORDRE DU LYS ET DE L'AIGLE" ("Order of the Lily & the Eagle", see chapter "1914-L'Ordre du Lys et de L'Aigle") in 1914. Lagreze initiated Papus into the "Rose Croix d'Orient". According to Robert Ambelain, in his introduction of the "Sacramentary of the Rose+Croix", "Dr. Encausse (Papus) had received a lineage of them by a member of the Supreme Council of the Martinist Order, who himself had received a lineage in the city of Cairo (Egypt), before 1914. Inside Martinism of that era, no one else had such a lineage, not even Teder (Papus' successor)." In Ambelain's reference to Cairo, he's making reference to the Martinist temple in the capitol city of Egypt. Eugène Dupré, the leader of the Martinists in Egypt (around 1914), allegedly was the founder (or: one of the founders) of 'Le Temple d'Essenie', the Martinist Lodge in Cairo, founded in 1911. This Lodge allegedly had the authority to establish lodges under its jurisdiction (source: O.M.T./T.M.O.). Démétrius Platon Sémélas, a Greek Martinist who'd become a member of the Egyptian Martinist Lodge at Cairo in 1911
