Egyptian Myths and Mysteries - Rudolf Steiner


Steiner reveals here the deep spiritual connection of our modern epoch with Egypt and why it is important to study its civilization with its profound wisdom, its extraordinary knowledge of cosmic laws, and its myths, which are meaningful for us now. He goes into the experiences of the Egyptian initiations, facts of occult anatomy and physiology, the stages of evolution of the human form, and more, culminating with a lecture on Christ as the conqueror of matter.

Here are 12 lectures given by Rudolf Steiner at Leipzig in September of 1908. They are in the lecture series entitled, Egyptian Myths and Mysteries, published in German as, Aegyptische Mythen und Mysterien im Verhaeltnis zu den wirkenden Geisteskraefte der Gegenwart.
