SERIES No. XXXV.
EVOLUTION IN THE ASPECT OF REALITIES.
BY RUDOLF STEINER.
[In the original
the numbering of the lectures is confusing. Six lectures in all
were given. The Moon Development is divided into Parts 1 and
making the 4th and 5th Lecture.]
Synopsis is not authoritative, and has merely been inserted by
the Editor for the possible convenience of students. The lectures
began in 1911, during the crisis in the Theosophical Society, due
to the claim started by Mrs. Besant and Mr. Leadbeater that a
certain Hindu boy under the protection of the latter would be
used later on for the physical reincarnation of the Christ. Their
dogmatic attitude and the intolerant propaganda associated with
it brought about the withdrawal of Dr. Steiner from the
Theosophical Society. The matter is just referred to by him in
the Introductory Lecture, but not again in this Course of
Lectures, which are of extreme importance and utility in their
power of connecting the living with the dead.
