Turning Points Spiritual History
GA 60/61

Rudolf Steiner gave the six lectures in this volume between January 1911 and January 1912. Soon after Steiner's death in 1925, Marie Steiner — realizing the importance of those lectures for understanding the evolution of consciousness and the central role of the Christ event in that process — collected them under the title, Turning Points in Spiritual History.

In these lectures, Steiner provides us with astonishing views of esoteric history and shows the remarkable ways in which the spiritual world guided and nurtured the spiritual evolution in preparation for the Christ's appearance on Earth.

From the lecture series entitled, Spiritual Science's Answer to the Large Questions of the Present Time, published in German as, Antworten der Geisteswissenschaft auf den Grossen Fragen des Daseins. Translated by Walter F. Knox
