The Mystery of the Trinity and the Mission of the Spirit: Eight Lectures, Dornach, Oxford, and London, July and August 1922
The first four lectures deal with the development of theology from a spiritual scientific point of view. Starting with the early Christian "gnostic" understanding of the Christ event from within, Steiner shows how medieval theology came to an "outer" view of the spiritual world, which, coupled with the rise of abstract intellectuality, led to the separation of faith and knowledge. Using examples from Dionysius the Areopagite, Scotus Eriugena, Paracelsus, and Goethe, Steiner places the evolution of consciousness and the task of the Michaelean age within a Christian context. The last four lectures demonstrate the presence of theology in the anthroposophical world view.
