The Temple Legend: Freemasonry and Related Occult Movements: From the Contents of the Esoteric School. 20 lectures, Berlin, May to Jan. 1906 (CW 93)
In these unique lectures, given to members of his Esoteric School (1904-14), Rudolf Steiner throws light on the hidden content of the pictorial language of myths, sagas, and legends. Pictures, he explains, are the true origin of all things -- the primeval spiritual causes. In the ancient past, people assimilated these pictures through myths and legends. In order to work in a healthy way with pictures or symbols today, however, it is necessary to first become acquainted with their esoteric essence -- to understand them.
At the time of these lectures, Steiner was planning to inaugurate the second section of the Esoteric School, which would deal directly with a renewal -- based on his spiritual research -- of ritual and symbolism. He gave these lectures as a necessary preparation to clarify the history and nature of the ritual traditions. He thus discusses principally Freemasonry and its background, but also the Rosicrucians, Manicheism, the Druids, the Prometheus Saga, the Lost Temple, Cain and Able, and much more.
This series of lectures provides real insight into the esoteric language that Steiner used, particularly during the earlier years of his teaching.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
