Rudolf Steiner Archive Document

RelAuthors Section

In June 1970, at the bio-dynamic farm and conference centre of Herr Wilhelm Rath at Farrach in Carinthia, Austria, a conference on the first and second Goetheanum was held. There, Wilhelm Rath showed slides of Assja Turgenieff's engravings of the coloured windows of the first Goetheanum. After speaking briefly on each window Herr Rath read the appropriate verse which he had composed as a poetic elucidation to the window in question. These verses are an attempt to express in rhythmical form what these unique works of art can convey to the beholder.
