Editorial Note

The following lecture was given by Rudolf Steiner to an audience familiar with the background of his anthroposophical teaching, at a time during the first world war when many souls had passed and were passing through the gate of death into the spiritual world. The desire for knowledge that will help to realize true links between the Living and the Dead is no less intense today, nor is the need of an approach in keeping with that healthy and vigilant consciousness which is proper to the modern age any less great. In many different contexts Rudolf Steiner emphasized that a conscious relationship with the Dead would become a more and more essential part of the civilization of the future.
