Occult Science and Occult Development
GA 152

These lectures reveal the Christocentric nature of Steiner's teachings and show the Incarnation of Christ as the pivot of cosmic and human evolution.

Translated from a shorthand report unrevised by the lecturer. This printing says:

The German text is published in the book Okkulte Wissenschaft und Okkulte Entwickelung. Christus zur Zeit des Mysteriums von Golgotha und Christus im zwanzigsten Jahrhundert (Vol. No. 233 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961).

In actuality, these lectures are nos. 1 and 2 of 10 from, Background of the Mystery of Golgotha, Published in German as, Vorstufen zum Mysterium von Golgotha (Vol. No. 152 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961), formerly Bn 150.2.
