Reading the Pictures of the Apocalypse
We are daily overwhelmed by pictures of the world situation which
reflect mighty spiritual events in our time. Our task is to learn to
rightly read these pictures and make judgments about them. This
book offers rich opportunities for such practice, or inner schooling,
so that we can meet the world situation in full wakefulness.
These lectures, consisting of listener's notes, present Steiner's
account of the meaning of the most esoteric book in the Bible.
Themes include: the nature of the third millennium; Sorat and the
significance of the number 666; the War of All against All; the
Second Coming of Christ; and the true nature of the I and the possible
futures open to it — futures that depend upon our actions now.
The illustration on the cover is drawn from these lectures. It
represents the occult sign for the Intelligence of the Sun, the Christ,
the adversary of Sorat, the Demon of the Sun.
