Karmic Relationships (Vol.8): Esoteric Studies

6 lectures, Torquay, Aug. 12–21, 1924, and London, Aug. 24–27, 1924 (CW 240)

During 1924, before his final address in September, Rudolf Steiner delivered more than eighty lectures on karma to members of the Anthroposophical Society. These profoundly esoteric lectures examine the underlying laws of reincarnation and karma, and explore in detail the incarnations of certain named historical figures.

In Rudolf Steiner’s words, the study of karma is “a matter of penetrating into the most profound mysteries of existence, for within the sphere of karma and the course it takes lie those processes which are the basis of the other phenomena of world existence.”

This eighth volume of the “Karmic Relationships” series of lectures were delivered during Steiner’s final visit to England. In them, he offers insights into subjects such as cosmic Christianity, the Michael impulse, the Arthur and the Grail streams of wisdom, as well as discussions of certain individualities, including Gregory VII, Haeckel, Swedenborg, Loyola, Haroun al Raschid, Byron, Voltaire, and others.

This book is a translation from German of 6 lectures (of 15) in Esoterische Betrachtungen karmischer Zusammenhänge, in 6 Bdn., Bd.6 (GA 240).

About the Author

Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) was born in the small village of Kraljevec, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Croatia), where he grew up (see right). As a young man, he lived in Weimar and Berlin, where he became a well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, known especially for his work with Goethe’s scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his early philosophical principles into an approach to systematic research into psychological and spiritual phenomena. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the term Anthroposophy (and spiritual science) for his philosophy, spiritual research, and findings. The influence of Steiner’s multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, various therapies, philosophy, religious renewal, Waldorf education, education for special needs, threefold economics, biodynamic agriculture, Goethean science, architecture, and the arts of drama, speech, and eurythmy. In 1924, Rudolf Steiner founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world. He died in Dornach, Switzerland.
