DISCOVER THE TRUE MEANING OF
EASTER

Rudolf Steiner leads us to an understanding of the true meaning of Easter by tracing its history from the pre-Christian era to our time. He explains Easter's connection to the cosmos and the spiritual reasons underlying our method of calculating the date of Easter. In the process, Steiner also discusses the cosmic influences shaping human evolution. He shows it is ultimately through knowing the true significance of Easter that we come to understand our relationship to spiritual reality.

Portrait of Rudolf Steiner 1  >
During the last two decades of the nineteenth century the Austrian-born Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) became a respected and well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, particularly known for his work on Goethe's scientific writings. After the turn of the century, he began to develop his earlier philosophical principles into an approach to methodical research of psychological and spiritual phenomena.

His multi-faceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, science, education (Waldorf schools), special education, philosophy, religion, economics, agriculture (Bio-Dynamic method), architecture, drama, the new art of eurythmy, and other fields. In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world.
