Fifth Gospel (1950): Translator's Note

On-line since: 15th July, 2012


Note by translator.

The nature of these lectures is such that any rendering in another language can only be offered with diffidence. It can be little more than an echo — in the case of certain passages hardly even that — of the power and solemnity of the original words. These results of super-sensible investigation were communicated by Rudolf Steiner thirty-seven years ago to a small circle of Members of the Anthroposophical Society who were prepared by previous study to listen to such a theme with the reverence that is its everlasting due. As the lectures have now been printed and made available for a wider circle of readers, the following translation has been attempted, with confidence that those into whose hands the volume finds its way will be mindful of Dr. Steiner's enjoinder that the contents should not be recklessly exposed to prejudice and misunderstanding.
