Yes, there is an `everburning lamp' in a musuem here in my country. It
has been there since the 18th century. There are several classes of
everburning lamps, amongst them - and the most recent in the illustrious
history of the everburning lamps - the socalled Rosicrucian everburning
lamps. Sometimes they are referred to in Rosicrucian studies as 'one of
the secrets of the Rosicrucians'.
It is one of these that rests in the museum. Besides Jennings, who
devoted quite some space to the topic of the everburning lamps, I think
it was - and here I have to delve in my reference works :-) - Wynn
Westcott, he of the Golden Dawn, who wrote a monograph on the subject.
