The Michael School: And the School of Spiritual Science

When Rudolf Steiner embarked on the esoteric lessons of the First Class in the newly founded Esoteric School at the Goetheanum, he suggested that the School for Spiritual Science as an esoteric institution had, in the years preceding the Christmas Foundation Meeting of 1923, become estranged from its intrinsic task.

This volume closely investigates those matters—to which Steiner referred only briefly—tracing the development of Rudolf Steiner’s idea of the School in relation to the Michael community, which he first discussed at length in his lectures on karma, given in parallel to the First Class lessons.

This book also describes Ita Wegman’s path and her mission in connection with these undertakings.

This book was originally published in German as Die Freie Hochschule fu¨r Geisteswissenschaft und die Michael-Schule (Verlag des Ita Wegman Instituts, Arlesheim, Switzerland, 2014).
