Who Was Ita Wegman? (Vol.1) A Documentation (1876 – 1925)

Rudolf Steiner and anthroposophy are known and active around the world and finding increasing recognition. This has led to a growing interest in the history of the anthroposophic movement and the lives of anthroposophic pioneers, one of which was Ita Wegman. The four volumes of the most complete biography chart the life of Dr. Wegman and offers fresh insight into both Dr. Wegman and her teacher, coworker, and dear friend Rudolf Steiner. These books, as well as their extensive notes and appendices, enable readers to delve imaginatively into the lives of these remarkable individuals who brought anthroposophic medicine into existence.

Born in 1876 on the island of Java, Ita Wegman completed her education as a physical education teacher in The Netherlands, learned Swedish massage in Berlin, and studied medicine in Zurich and Munich before opening medical practices in Switzerland. This volume explores the events in her life until 1925, the year of Rudolf Steiner’s death.

About the Author

Johannes Emmanuel Zeylmans von Emmichoven (1926–2008) was born in The Hague. Through his family’s home in Johannes Schevening, where his father ran a clinic, he came into close contact with Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophy as a child. In 1951, he launched the Castrum Peregrini (Amsterdam) magazine, which continues today. Years of work as a bookseller, editor, and publisher followed. In 1966, he was ordained a priest in The Christian community. He settled in Germany late in life. At the age of 75, he “discovered” Hungary through Hungarian translations of his works. He first visited Hungary in 2001 and returned three more times. He was became ill at Pentecost in 2003, in Budapest, where he continued to work on the fourth volume on Ita Wegman’s life until his death.
