  2. Living spiritual history. The leaders of humanity. The Creative Word.

  3. The metamorphoses of the earth. The prototypes of the images. The servants of the word.

  4. The hierarchical beings of our solar system and the kingdoms of the earth.

  5. Human evolution within the embodiments of our earth. The realm of the Luciferic and Ahrimanic spirits and that of the divine-spiritual beings.

  6. The Atlantean oracles. The post-Atlantean initiation temples. The Baptism by St. John.

  7. The baptism with water and the baptism with fire and spirit.

  8. The Initiation Mysteries. The raising from the dead by Christ Jesus.

  10. What occurred at the Baptism? Christ's dominion over the laws governing the skeleton, and the conquest of death.

  11. The harmonization of the inner forces of man through the Christ-Impulse. The connection of the Mysteries with the Prophesies and the Gospels.

  12. The decline of primeval wisdom and its rejuvenation through the Christ-Impulse. The significance of the Mystery of Golgotha for human evolution upon our earth.

  13. The cosmic significance of the Mystery of Golgotha. The conquest of death through the removal of the Luciferic-Ahrimanic influence. Death as giver of life. The first impulse for our earth to become sun. The radiation of the Christ force into the human etheric body. The effect of the Christ light and its reflection in the earth's environment as a spiritual sphere. The Holy Spirit.

  14. The earth as Christ's body and as a new light center. The Last Supper as a step toward the mystical union with Christ. St. Paul as the herald of the spiritually living Christ. The seven stages of Christian Initiation. Death as the seed of eternal egoity. Spirit knowledge is the fire of life.
