Mysteries : Rudolf Steiner's Writings on Spiritual Initiation
Rudolf Steiner wrote and spoke extensively on the lasting value of the ancient Mysteries as an essential source for understanding the Christian experience. His view was that modern rationality did not banish the deeper patterns of spiritual initiation, but was rather, in the very foundations of our thought, a transformation of early Mystery structures and processes.
This collection of extracts from Steiner's books and lectures includes his account of the mystical and mythical patterns of the ancient world, the pre-Socractic and the Platonic philosophers, the initiation Mysteries in Egypt and the Orient, and finally his commentary on the Apocalypse of St John.
