Throughout history and across cultures, important figures such as Nostradamas in France, Daniel Andreeve in Russia, Dr. Edward Bach in England, and Dr. Tomin Harada in Japan have brought to light the symbolic and medicinal qualities of the rose. Written by scholars and researchers from diverse backgrounds, the essays in Rose Lore are a rendering of global cultural history, literature, and metaphysics, woven together in a collection that will be valuable to several disciplines. The essays present numerous qualities of the rose as a symbol with broad cultural, social, and historical meanings: from astrology, to the history of Catholicism, to the new anti-Female Genital Mutilation global movement.
