The Mystery of the Trinity
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 that, 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 Michael age in a Christian context.
The last four lectures, given in Oxford (and London) against the background
of the Manchester College conference on “spiritual values in education
and social life,” demonstrate the presence of theology in the
anthroposophical world view.
These eight lectures are from the lecture series entitled,
The Mystery of the Trinity and the Mission of the Spirit.
They were published in German as,
Das Geheimnis der Trinitat. Der Mensch und sein Verhaeltnis zur
Geistwelt im Wandel der Zeiten.
