Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere

Week 6

There has arisen from its narrow limits
My self and finds itself
As revelation of all worlds
Within the sway of time and space;
The world, as archetype divine,
Displays to me at every turn
The truth of my own likeness.

Southern Hemisphere

Week 32

I feel my own force, bearing fruit
And gaining strength to give me to the world.
My inmost being I feel charged with power
To turn with clearer insight
Toward the weaving of life's destiny.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

These eight lectures are among Steiner' papers and presentations of thirty-four addresses from the years 1901–1905, including those from Steiner's teaching at the Berlin “Worker's Training School,” as well as reports on his work in the “Giordano Bruno Movement” in 1902. The main sections of the volume include lectures on the following topics:

  • World and Life Views from the Earliest Times to the Present
  • History of the Middle Ages to the Great Inventions and Discoveries (this volume)
