These four lectures will go a long way toward explaining the truly human – as distinct from specifically religious – significance of what the Christian religion celebrates as Easter. Steiner traces the pre-Christian origins of this festival and shows it to be grounded in cosmic-earthly reality has been experienced by humanity throughout time. I think you’ll find this perspective to go deeper than most accounts of the history of various festivals. More importantly, I think you’ll find it freeing.
