By Rudolf Steiner

Bn 122; GA 122
Translation by Dorothy Lenn with help Owen Barfield

Steiner describes the formative work of the Elohim, as well as other spiritual beings, in this detailed study of the seven days of creation as recorded in the Book of Genesis. He explains the reality behind Jehovah, variant translations from the Hebrew, and the correspondence of the Genesis account with the anthroposophical description of the evolutionary periods.

This translation has been made by Dorothy Lenn with the assistance of Owen Barfield from the revised 3rd edition of the German text-published under the title, “Die Geheimnisse der biblischen Schöpfungsgeschichte.” For the convenience of English readers quotations from the Bible have been given in the words of the English Authorised Version, or if this has seemed impracticable, the Authorised Version has been given in a footnote.

This 1959 English edition is published here by permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
