The Worldview of Herman Grimm in Relation to Spiritual Science

by Rudolf Steiner


In content, this translation into English of Rudolf Steiner's lecture on the art historian, author and researcher Herman Grimm, can be said to be a paean to Grimm's wholly original and unorthodox approach to art history. Herman Grimm's work differs substantially from standard, more intellectual approaches, as becomes evident from statements of Herman Grimm quoted here:

“If, by some miracle, Michelangelo were called from the dead, to live among us again, and if I were to meet him, I would humbly stand aside to let him pass: if Raphael came by, I would follow him, to see whether or not I might have the opportunity of hearing a few words from his lips. With Leonardo and Michelangelo, one can confine oneself to reporting what they once were in their day; with Raphael, one has to start from what he is for us today. Concerning the two others, a slight veil has passed over them, but not over Raphael. He belongs among those whose growth is as yet far from being at an end. We may imagine that Raphael will present ever new riddles to future generations of humanity.”

This is a lecture, given by Rudolf Steiner, entitled Die Weltanschauung eines Kulturforschers der Gegenwart, Herman Grimm, und die Geistesforschung and contained in the volume Ergebnisse der Geistesforschung (Results of Spiritual Research) GA 62. The series in which this lecture was given at the Architektenhaus in Berlin, may be said to underline its overall importance for Rudolf Steiner: Held January 16th 1913 subsequent to a lecture January 30th on Raphael. Also known as, Herman Grimm, Contemporary Culture and Spiritual Developments, and Anthroposophy.

This lecture is the fourth in a series of four lectures from GA 62, that are newly translated by Peter Stebbing. Edited by James Stewart. You can research the on-line version of this book by clicking here. Or, click on the cover image to buy this book at Amazon.com, to read or study at home.

Art as a Bridge between the Sensible and the Supersensible

by Rudolf Steiner


This lecture was held just over one hundred years ago, in the aftermath of the First World War and the ‘flu pandemic’ of 1917-1919 — a period of far-reaching constraints and widespread human suffering. The correspondence to our own times are hard to ignore. In these circumstances, it is all the more appropriate to bring this lecture to the fore. A lecture given by Rudolf Steiner: from Vergangenheits- und Zukunftsimpulse im sozialen Geschehen. (Past and Future Impulses in Social Life Bn/GA/CW 190. Lecture VI, 30th March 1919 in Dornach, Switzerland.

Artemis and the Artemision

by Peter Stebbing


With the ruins of the Artemis temple almost non-existent today, it is perhaps not surprising that little interest is generally accorded this 6th Wonder of the World. Yet we can still gain an idea of it and of the legendary statue of Artemis, from reconstruction drawings and archaeological finds — supported by literary and historical sources. Study of this important Greek Mystery Center can shed light on the cultural impulses appropriate for our time.

This unique research by Peter Stebbing is the first time in print, and has several color images to enhance the text. You can click on the cover image to buy this book at Amazon.com, to read or study at home.

Fairy Tales: in the Light of Spiritual Investigation and A Mongolian Legend

by Rudolf Steiner


From the contents of this lecture: “Fairy tales and sagas are comparable to a good angel, granted human beings as a companion from birth on their life's wanderings, to be a trustworthy comrade throughout — offering comradeship, and making life inwardly into a truly ensouled fairy tale!”

This is a lecture, given by Rudolf Steiner, entitled Märchendichtungen im Lichte der Geistesforschung, and contained in the volume Ergebnisse der Geistesforschung (Results of Spiritual Research) GA 62. The series in which this lecture was given at the Architektenhaus in Berlin, may be said to underline its overall importance for Rudolf Steiner: held February 6th 1913 subsequent to a lecture January 30th on Raphael, it was followed a week later, on February 13th, by a lecture on Leonardo da Vinci.

As a bonus, A Mongolian Legend is included. It is from a matinee lecture given by Rudolf Steiner: Mythen und Sagen. Okkulte Zeichen und Symbole (Myths and Legends. Occult Signs and Symbols). From GA 101. Lecture IV, 21st October 1907 in Berlin.

This lecture is the third in a series of four lectures from GA 62, that are newly translated by Peter Stebbing. Edited by James Stewart. You can research the on-line version of this book by clicking here. Or, click on the cover image to buy this book at Amazon.com, to read or study at home.

Leonardo's Spiritual Stature

by Rudolf Steiner

Raphael's Mission

by Rudolf Steiner


This lecture on Raphael points to an ever greater inwardness or “internalizing” of the human soul in the future development of humanity. Steiner's large-format watercolours can be said to be an unmistakable further expression of this. Though it might seem improbable at first to link Raphael's works so directly with the painting impulse of Rudolf Steiner, separated as they are by four hundred years. An underlying relation becomes apparent, nonetheless, despite the manifest contrast. The Madonnas of Raphael will self-evidently never be surpassed. Yet, the future development of art, always “a daughter of the divine,” implies, in Rudolf Steiner's sense, an ongoing spiritualization. We begin to recognize Raphael's relevance for today and for the future. A lecture given by Rudolf Steiner: from Ergebnisse der Geistesforschung. (Some Results of Spiritual Research). Bn/GA/CW 62. Lecture IX, 30th January 1913 in Berlin.

This unique English translation is the first in a series of four lectures from GA 62, that are newly translated by Peter Stebbing. Edited by James Stewart.
