Reading the Pictures of the Apocalypse

(CW 104a)

Rudolf Steiner Translated by James H. Hindes Preface by Virginia Sease

128 pp.  
5 3/4" x 8 3/4"





16 lectures, Munich and Oslo, May 1, 1907 - May 21, 1909 (CW 104a)

We are daily overwhelmed by pictures of the world situation which reflect mighty spiritual events in our time. Our task is to learn to rightly read these pictures and make judgments about them. This book offers rich opportunities for such practice, or inner schooling, so that we can meet the world situation in full wakefulness.

These lectures, consisting of listener's notes, present Steiner's account of the meaning of the most esoteric book in the Bible.

Themes include: the nature of the third millennium; Sorat and the significance of the number 666; the War of All against All; the Second Coming of Christ; and the true nature of the I and the possible futures open to it — futures that depend upon our actions now.

The illustration on the cover is drawn from these lectures. It represents the occult sign for the Intelligence of the Sun, the Christ, the adversary of Sorat, the Demon of the Sun.

This book is a translation of Aus der Bilderschrift der Apokalypse des Johannes (GA 104a), published by Rudolf Steiner Verlag, Dornach, Switzerland, 1991.
