"The intention of my lecture was to draw attention to the fact that the recent development of the Goetheanum is no longer heading in the right direction; rather, it is heading in a direction that can be considered neither in the spirit intended by Rudolf Steiner, nor of service to anthroposophy. Before it is too late, this direction must be altered.... Otherwise, the Goetheanum is in danger of being degraded to spiritual 'insignificance,' and of becoming a mere combination of museum and conference centre." -- Sergei O. Prokofieff
"Why is it so difficult actually to understand and implement the 'intentions of the Christmas Conference' [in Steiner's words], which represent a very concrete answer to the Anthroposophical Society’s identity crisis?" -- Peter Selg
More than 100 years after its founding, the Anthroposophical Society faces serious questions -- some of an existential nature -- regarding its purpose and tasks in the present day. On March 30, 2012, in the course of the Society’s Annual General Meeting in Dornach, both Prokofieff and Selg gave lectures that addressed difficult issues related to the General Anthroposophical Society and its global headquarters, the Goetheanum in Switzerland. These lectures were met with a mixture of enthusiastic support and stern disapproval. They are reproduced here in full, with supplementary material to help broaden and deepen their themes, so that every interested individual can have access to them.
Originally published in German as two booklets Die Identität der Allgemeinen Anthroposophischen Gesellschaft (by Peter Selg) and Wie stehen wir heute vor Rudolf Steiner? (by Sergei O. Prokofieff) by Verlag des Ita Wegman Instituts.

Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
