Robert Fludd ("Robertus de Fluctibus" (1574-1637)) allegedly was a
member of the committee which drafted the King James Bible (
This site "Prelude: Freemasonry and the American Revolution" (
http://www.frontiernet.net/~kissel/tlc-r/bk2a-2wl.htm ) says "Robert
Fludd, Dee's disciple, and the Rosicrucian Francis Bacon were among
the conclave of scholars who created the King James' Bible
translation." about Robert Fludd.
This site ( http://www.aspects.net/~janus/Templar.htm ) about the
Templars has the following to say: "In his book, "Bloodline of the
Holy Grail" Laurence Gardner points out that "the Rosicrucians (like
the Cathars and Templars before them had access to an ancient
knowledge which held more substance than anything promulagated by
Rome." Listed among the adherents to the Rosicrucian beliefs was
Dante, Columbus, Francis Bacon, Christopher Wren, and Robert Fludd who
assisted in translating the King James (Authorised) Bible."
I was also able to find a quote from Michael Baigent and Richard
Leigh's book "Freemasonry: Geometry of the Sacred" (pp.20-22):
"In England, the chief exponant of 'Rosicrucian' thought was John
Dee's disciple, Robert Fludd--who along with Frances Bacon, was among
the conclave of scholars commissioned by King James to produce an
English translation of the Bible..."
And another book quote from Dennis Laurence Cuddy's "NOW IS THE
DAWNING OF THE NEW AGE NEW WORLD ORDER":
"Dee's disciple, Robert Fludd, was the chief proponent of
Rosicrucianism in England, and Fludd along with Sir Francis Bacon and
others were commissioned by King James I,...to produce an English
translation of the Holy Bible."
This site ( http://philologos.org/__eb-jki/tape05.htm ) about secret
societies has the following to say: "Andrea's Masonic contact in
England was Robert Fludd who received his Christian education at
Christ's Church Oxford. Fludd is significant to the Protestant
Reformation in that he was among the conclave of 47 scholars who
presided over the translation of the authorized King James version of
Robert Fludd was apparently associated with the Freemasons and other
secret societies. He did extensive studies on occultism. (I guess you
already know that, taking into account that your name is Rosenkranz
and he was a Rosenkreuzer.)
It seems that the mentioning of his links to the creation of the King
James Bible usually occurs in articles which also explore either his
occult or the secret society links. He is not mentioned as an author
though in most works dealing with the creation of the King James Bible
itself. The book "Translators Revived" (online version, see additional
resources) for example lists the scholars who apparently were the
translators, but does not include Robert Fludd.
I hope I was able to help. Feel free to ask for clarification!
