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.

This is a new (ad)venture for our initiatives, and comes with an additional financial burden. So, if you can, please help us — and the entire Anthroposophical community and all publishers of anthroposophical works — by purchasing one or more of these fine editions for your personal library. You can always research Steiner's works here and at other sites on the Internet, but you must agree, it is really nice to be able to curl up in your favorite chair to read and study the material at home!
