The seventh main age, also called the seventh root race in Rudolf Steiner's early writings and lectures according to outdated theosophical usage[1], is identified in the Apocalypse of John as the age of the 7 trombones. In this age the Earth will reunite with the Sun. The seed for this development was laid by the great Spirit of the Sun, the Christ, with the Mystery of Golgotha. With the outpouring of the 7 bowls of wrath, the Earth will again pass into the astral state and the future Earth embodiment, the New Jupiter will be prepared.

  1. Rudolf Steiner has repeatedly pointed out that the term "race" is actually no longer justified in the post-Atlantean time, since now it is no longer the physical but the soul-spiritual development that comes to the fore. The division of humanity into races will gradually be completely overcome. For the so-called 6th and 7th "root race" the designation is quite misleading, since humanity will then already have completely discarded the physical body. The terms "root race" and "subrace" still originate from the terminology used by the Theosophical Society at that time and were later hardly ever used by Rudolf Steiner (Lit.:GA 99, p. 144).
