Four Seasons and the Archangels

Rudolf Steiner

Translated by Pauline Wehrle


These five lectures are among our favorites. The beauty of Steiner’s portrayal of the activities of the archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel at the four pillars of the year is breathtaking. These lectures picture the alchemy of the cosmos, human beings, plants, animals and minerals moving together through the all the forces of elemental nature to find the balance point of the Earth’s true goal. Highly recommended as another key doorway to understanding the cosmic significance of the turning of the year.

  1. This book is essential for all those that wonder about the forces behind the changes of the seasons and the circadian gestures that are brought. Through the attendant festivals these can be readily experienced by ‘children’ of all ages.
