THE ANTHROPOSOPHIC MOVEMENT

In describing the development of Anthroposophy, Steiner illumined the philosophies that lie at its roots. He speaks of Madame H. P. Blavatsky, of the anti-Christian forces in the world, and of the 'homeless' souls who seek a spiritual scientific understanding of the world and humanity.

ANTHROPOSOPHICAL LEADING THOUGHTS

Anthroposophy as a Path of Knowledge

The Michael Mystery

'Anthroposophy is a path of knowledge, to guide the Spiritual in the human being to the Spiritual in the universe.' (From the first 'Leading Thought'.)

AWAKENING TO COMMUNITY

"We are firmly in our understanding of things of the spirit only when we do not rest content with abstract spiritual concepts and a capacity to express them theoretically, but instead grow into a sure belief that higher beings are present with us in a community of spirit when we engage in spiritual study. No external measures can bring about anthroposophical community-building. You have to call it forth from the profoundest depths of human consciousness." —Rudolf Steiner

CONSTITUTION OF THE SCHOOL OF SPIRITUAL SCIENCE

An Introductory Guide

‘If the intentions of the Christmas Conference are to be carried out, the Anthroposophical Society will in future have to fulfil, as far as possible, the esoteric aspirations of its members. With this end in view, the School, consisting of three Classes, will be established within the General Society.’ - Rudolf Steiner, January 1924

SPIRITUALISM, MADAME BLAVATSKY, AND THEOSOPHY

The spiritual revolution of the twentieth century-the "New Age"-is unimaginable without the spiritualist movement and the formidable personality of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, the creator of the Theosophical Society. Without these two, the work of Rudolf Steiner, G.I. Gurdjieff, Hazrat Inayat Khan, Sri Aurobindo, and C.G. Jung, could not have been what it was.

THE DESTINY OF THE MICHAEL COMMUNITY

Foundation Stone for the Future

Peter Selg

In two related studies, Peter Selg tracks the groundbreaking of the first Goetheanum on September 20, 1913, in the context of what is known as the “Michael movement,” the primary active impulse brought by Rudolf Steiner in 1924, which explicitly indicates the anthroposophic movement and its official society.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF ANTHROPOSOPHY SINCE RUDOLF STEINER'S DEATH

An Outline and Perspectives for the Future

T.H.Meyer

This volume begins with Thomas Meyer's assessment of Anthroposophy's evolution since Rudolf Steiner’s death and its future prospects. He offers an overview of the eighty-seven years of the development of the anthroposophic movement and the Anthroposophical Society, the worldwide organization headquartered in Dornach, Switzerland, since the death of its founder.

THE GOETHEANUM

A guided tour through the building, its surroundings and its history

Hans Hasler

'I first saw the Goetheanum as a fifteen-year-old through binoculars. I was fascinated and wanted to know more about this incredible building. What am I seeing? Why these forms? What happens in this building?' - Hans Hasler

INTO THE HEART'S LAND

A Century of Rudolf Steiner's Work in North America

Henry Barnes

Henry Barnes—the author of A Life for the Spirit—brings us a comprehensive view of the development of the anthroposophic movement in North America. During its initial phase in the early 1900s, Americans began to return from Europe with word of an individual who spoke about the spiritual world from direct experience. The first spritual-scientific initiatives began in New York in the 1930s and spread across the prairies to the West Coast and beyond—to Canada, Mexico, and Hawaii—taking root in the hearts and minds of the “new world.”

ITA WEGMAN AND ANTHROPOSOPHY

A Conversation with Emanuel Zeylmans

Wolfgang Weirauch

"I believe a time will come when greater distance makes the conflicts in the Anthroposophical Society - which at first sight seem so ugly - appear as part of the struggle for Anthroposophy in the twentieth century. When this future dawns, it will be important to be able to reach back to an historical documentation of what happened." - Emanuel Zeylmans

THE REPRESENTATIVE OF HUMANITY

Between Lucifer and Ahriman

The Wooden Model at the Goetheanum

Judith von Halle

John Wilkes

In conceiving his architectural masterpiece - the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland - Rudolf Steiner designed a large wooden model, featuring three main figures, to be placed in a central position inside the building. Known as 'the Representative of Humanity', this sculpture shows a central, free-standing Christ holding a balance between the beings of Lucifer and Ahriman, who represent polar tendencies of expansion and contraction. On New Year's Eve 1922 the Goetheanum was destroyed by fire, but the model - still in a process of creation and therefore housed in an external studio - miraculously escaped the flames. It remains intact to this day in the second Goetheanum, where it can be viewed by the public.

RUDOLF STEINER AND THE SCHOOL FOR SPIRITUAL SCIENCE

The Foundation of the

Peter Selg

"Following Rudolf Steiner's death, the mysteries cannot be revealed further at the present time, but we must continue to cultivate a living, not only rational but also ritual, continuity of the mystery contents he has given, passing them to people who did not know Rudolf Steiner and yet seek to connect with him esoterically and not just intellectually." - Ludwig Count Polzer-Hoditz

RUDOLF STEINER'S INTENTIONS FOR THE ANTHROPOSOPHICAL SOCIETY

The Executive Council, the School of Spiritual Science, and the Sections

Peter Selg

Although the fruits of Anthroposophy - Waldorf education, biodynamic agriculture, Camphill, anthroposophic medicine, and so on - are relatively well known and moderately successful, their relationship to Anthroposophy and its vehicle for transmission, the General Anthroposophical Society, and the School for Spiritual Science, remains mysterious and unclear; sadly, the same is true of the meaning and purpose of those institutions.

RUDOLF STEINER’S MISSION AND ITA WEGMAN

Margarete and Erich Kirchner-Bockholt

‘Because I felt that he knew how things were, I said simply:“I will stay with you.” Then he said significant things to me that I was not to repeat. A very ancient karma existing between him and myself was renewed. It was not until many years later that I first realised the significance of that meeting.’ – Ita Wegman

TWIN ROADS TO THE NEW MILLENNIUM

The Christmas Conference and the Karma of the Anthroposophical Society

Hans Peter van Manen

First published in the run-up to the new millennium, van Manen’s seminal study remains a unique and important source for understanding the spiritual and karmic background to the Anthroposophical Movement and Society, as founded around the work of the twentieth-century seer and scientist Rudolf Steiner.
