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.
These selected lectures are presented here with the kind permission
of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
From various Bn and GA numbers.
