These lectures focus on the four Christian festival seasons, elaborating on the complementary nature of Christmas with Midsummer and Easter with Michaelmas. The esoteric realities behind the festivals are discussed in relation to sub-earthly and super-earthly powers, the equinoxes, the ancient Mysteries, Michael's activity, morality, and the musical-poetic and visual arts. This volume along with Michaelmas and the Soul-Forces of Man completes the entire German volume GA 223.
In the collected edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled Der Jahreskreislauf als Atmungsvorgang der Erde und die vier grossen Festeszeiten. (Vol. 223 in the Bibliographic Survey). They were translated from the German by Barbara D. Betteridge and Frances E. Dawson. Cover Design by Peter Stebbing.
