Speculum Sophicum Rhodostauroticum is a book written by Daniel Mögling under the pseudonym of Teophilus Schweighardt Constantiens.

In the Speculum, Mögling repeatedly refers to Thomas a Kempis's Imitatio Christi as a major source for Rosicrucian thought. Mögling allegedly did not believe in the actual existence of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood, but adhered to its theosophical and pansophist principles. The four engravings in the Speculum offer an ‘orbis pictus’ of the Rosicrucian movement and were to provide lasting inspiration for later Rosicrucian iconography.
