Ideas for a New Europe
Amid the ruins of Western civilization after World War I, Steiner pointed to the urgency for the renewal of spiritual life as Europe struggled to return to normal. He challenged his listeners to understand the deeper causes--the spiritual roots--of the modern situation. This kind of reexamination is even more pressing today as Europe stands on the threshold of a new destiny and faces the fears arising from terrible new dangers.
These are some of Steiner's most important statements about the role of the English-speaking peoples in terms of spiritual history.
