Excursus on the Gospel According to St. Mark
By Rudolf Steiner
Copyright © 1937
These lectures constitute an important chapter in Steiner's commentary
on Christianity. They stress the relationship of the Gospel of Mark to
the “language of the macrocosm” and cover such topics as the
two main streams of post-Atlantean civilization, the tasks of our epoch,
the laws of rhythm in the domain of soul and spirit, and much more.
Ten lectures from the series entitled:
Excursus in the Area of the Gospel of St. Mark.
Published in German as:
Exkurse in das Gebiet des Markus-Evangelium.
These lectures, plus three more, were published later as:
Background to the Gospel of St. Mark.
We present them with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner
Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland. The translator is unknown.
From GA 124.
