The present publication in the series “Lectures and Course regarding the Christian-religious work” is divided into two. The first part includes four lectures, given by Rudolf Steiner in July 1923 for the Priests in the 10 months before the founding of “The Christian Community” in Stuttgart.
In the second part are the original hand written notes of Rudolf Steiner (slightly reduced). They deal with additions to the wording for rituals already presented in the second and third courses. The originals of these handwritten notes can be found in the Archives of the Rudolf Steiner Estate Administration.
