Karl König meditated intensely on the fifty-two weekly verses of Rudolf Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul. During his time in internment on the Isle of Man, he made these fifty-two naïve, artistic sketches to accompany each verse. This is a wonderful way to experience an important spiritual tool.

About the Author

Karl König (1902–1966) was born in Vienna, in Austria-Hungary, the only son of a Jewish shoemaker. He studied medicine at the University of Vienna and graduated in 1927, with a special interest in embryology. After graduating, he was invited by Ita Wegman to work in her Klinisch-Therapeutisches Institut, a clinic in Arlesheim, Switzerland for people with special needs. He married Mathilde Maasberg in 1929. Dr. König was appointed paediatrician at the Rudolf Steiner-inspired Schloß Pilgrimshain institute in Strzegom, where he worked until 1936, when he returned to Vienna and established a successful medical practice. Owing to Hitler’s invasion of Austria, he was forced to flee Vienna to Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1938. Dr. König was interned briefly at the beginning of World War II, but on his release in 1940 he set up the first Camphill Community for Children in Need of Special Care at Camphill on the outskirts of Aberdeen. From the mid-1950s, König began more communities, including one in North Yorkshire, the first to care for those beyond school age with special needs. In 1964, König moved to Brachenreuthe near Überlingen on Lake Constance, Germany, where he set up another community, where he died in 1966.

Richard Steel was born in 1952 in Oxford. He trained at the Camphill seminar in Föhrenbühl am Bodensee, where he lived with his family in a household with children and young people. He is an adminstrator for the estate of Karl König and works for the Karl König Archive in Berlin.
