The Relationship of the Starry World to Man and of Man to the Starry World. The Spiritual Communion of Humanity

Das Verhältnis der Sternenwelt zum Menschen und des Menschen zur Sternenwelt. Die geistige Kommunion der Menschheit

Twelve lectures, Dornach 26 November to 31 December 1922, with notebook entries for two lectures.

These lectures in the Christmas period of 1922 were the last that Rudolf Steiner was able to give at the First Goetheanum. Immediately after the New Year's Eve lecture the building was a victim of the flames.
