This group probably wishes to connect itself with the Fama Fraternitatis
, a document that
appeared in the capitals of Europe in the 17th century, announcing a secret order that was intent on causing a rebirth of human reason.
The term "unkown philosophers" is, I think, a literal translation of a phrase used in the book to mean anonymous sages who were working behind the
scenes to reform human society.
Generally considered an elaborate hoax. launched the Rosicrucian movement. Google the Fama F., since the Wikipedia entry is limited and contains
all the best.
