The Christian Mystery

Early Lectures

Rudolf Steiner Translated by James Hindes Introduction by Christopher Bamford

288 pp.  



Published:  December 1998


'Wake and pray'—this is the fundamental Christian axiom, for the new initiation occurs in the waking state. 'You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.' This is a profound Christian saying. It looks forward to the future of Christianity—for Christianity actually stands only at the beginning of its development. —Rudolf Steiner

In this major collection, Rudolf Steiner affirms the reality of esoteric Christianity and unveils many of its secret teachings. His lectures are on the significance of the Mystery of Golgotha and of the Blood that flowed on the Cross; the relationship of Christ and Lucifer (or Love and Knowledge); the various paths of initiation, including the Christian-Gnostic and Rosicrucian Paths; and Steiner’s early interpretations of St. John’s gospel and the sermon on the mount. All of Steiner’s lectures on the Lord’s Prayer are also included, as well as the version of the prayer that Steiner himself prayed throughout his life.

This is an excellent book for all those who want to deepen their understanding of the Western stream of Christian esotericism and Rudolf Steiner's approach to Christianity as a spiritual practice.
