An important aspect of Steiner’s lifework was his goal of making the festivals of the Christian year come alive for modern people. To this end, he have many lectures and encouraged artistic performances, as well as joyous celebration. I have personally found his discussions of the festivals to be among the most meaningful throughout my life. I’m delighted to see this series in print and believe they will go a long way to increase both understanding and joy.
