The Festivals and their Meaning II:
Easter

This volume is a tremendous help for participating in the deep spiritual realities behind the Easter festival. Throughout his life Steiner talked about a modern spiritually conscious approach to the festivals of the year. Here is a compilation of what he had to say at various times about Easter.

Eight lectures given between the years 1908 and 1922. With a Foreword by A. P. Shepherd, this translation, from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer, was edited and revised by Dorothy S. Osmond, Alan P. Shepherd and Charles Davy.
