The Life and Times of Rudolf Steiner

Volume 2: Origin and Growth of His Insight

Emil Bock

240 pp.  

Floris Books


Published:  May 2009


Following World War II, Emil Bock lectured widely on Rudolf Steiner, and, during the course of his research, he uncovered many unknown aspects of Steiner’s life. This book, the second of two volumes, explores themes and ideas in Steiner’s work, as well as the nature of destiny.

Topics covered in this comprehensive study include the early years of Jesus; the Christmas festival; the movement away from the Theosophical Society to form the Anthroposophical Society; and many more themes and events. Emil Bock also examines the people surrounding Steiner at that time and, drawing on Steiner’s views of karma and reincarnation, reveals interesting parallels with Rome, Byzantium, Ephesus, and the Grail Castle.
