Lectures and Courses on Christian Religious Work. Volume I. Anthroposophical Foundations for a Renewed Christian-Religious Work

Vorträge und Kurse über christlich-religiöses Wirken. Band I. Anthroposophische Grundlagen für ein erneuertes christlich-religiöses Wirken

Six lectures and two discussions, Stuttgart 12-16 June 1921.

In these lectures Rudolf Steiner addresses questions that had been put to him by young people in 1920 and 1921. They were students, mainly of Protestant theology, who in this time of collapse of old structures that had hitherto given people outer and inner support, were looking for new and contemporary ways of religious life and work. In his explanations, Rudolf Steiner shows how these paths can be found, building on the insights of anthroposophical spiritual science.
