Prophecy of the Russian Epic: How the Holy Mountains Released the Mighty Russian Heroes from Their Rocky Caves
The prophetic Russian epic, How the Holy Mountains Released the Mighty Russian Heroes from their Rocky Caves, tells of a mighty spiritual battle for the destiny of the Russian people, involving the powerful spiritual beings of Christ, Mary-Sophia, the Archangel Michael, the Antichrist and the terrible forces of the fallen hierarchies of evil.
The epic or bylina describes three fearful trials which must be endured by the Russian people. The overcoming of these trials would lead to a mastering of those spiritual powers needed for the fulfillment of the Russian people’s future mission on behalf of human evolution, establishing a kingdom of brotherly love, and spreading a new spiritual culture throughout the Earth.
The spiritual science of Anthroposophy is required to understand the bylina in its full spiritual depth and significance, suggests Prokofieff. With the assistance of its insights, the bylina reveals the whole historical path of Russia from the past, through the present, and into the future. Thus we may understand not only the supersensible forces and beings which have actually participated in Russian history, but also its principal feature in the 20th century – Bolshevism and the demonic inspiration which lay behind it.
