Wonders of the World, Ordeals of the Soul, Revelations of the Spirit: Ten Lectures Given in Munich, 18th-27th August 1911
Steiner depicts here the deep realities of the spiritual life of the Greeks and the deeds of their gods, as well as the Eleusinian and Dionysian Mysteries. He shows how the same living reality of the spiritual world can be reawakened today in a modern form through spiritual science due to the incarnation of Christ at the time of the Greek culture.
