Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Anthroposophy, is a pivotal figure in contemporary esoteric thought. Through his books and lectures he provided an impetus for the spiritual renewal of many human activities, including education (Steiner Waldorf schools), agriculture, medicine, economics, the arts and religion.
Steiner showed how mankind has been evolving and explained the role of the great spiritual world leaders in the process. Above all he showed how the impulse to evolution given by Christ's death and resurrection - what he referred to as the Mystery of Golgotha - is of unique importance in the human being's struggle to reach the summit of evolution: union with the higher self.
Bernard Nesfield-Cookson here shows how Rudolf Steiner's vision of love, the transformative power brought by Christ, unites the forces of the head and heart towards a spiritual awakening among mankind. Gathering together references to the 'logic of the heart' from throughout Steiner's work, the author encapsulates the great teacher's revelations on the meaning of love, and indicates the supreme importance of the greatest of all deeds of love: the Mystery of Golgotha.
BERNARD NESFIELD-COOKSON has led a varied professional life as a businessman, school teacher, lecturer and writer. Most recently he was principal of Hawkwood College, an independent centre for adult education in Gloucestershire. He is the author of Michael and the Two-Horned Beast and William Blake: Prophet of Universal Brotherhood.
