The Dragon Boy, the first book of the Star Trilogy, is a coming of age story.
Orphaned twice by the time he was nine, he was living on the streets and did not even know his own name. He was not allowed to set foot inside the one place he was determined to find work. To complete the disaster of his young life, the object of his affections was Star, an immense emerald-green dragon. But good fortune finally smiled upon him: Star was a Luck Dragon. Suddenly he was admitted as a barn boy into the elite Dragon Compound. He was given three warm meals a day, work, and even a name. And best of all, Star took him on as his secret apprentice.

<B>From Symptom to Reality in Modern History </B><I> </I>, STEINER, RUDOLF
3 From Symptom to Reality in Modern History
1855844141 / 9781855844148 
This book is recommended by the worldwide Anthropsophical Society as being the most relevant of Rudolf Steiner's books to the theme of the year 2016.
In a radical approach to understanding current affairs and history, Rudolf Steiner presents a method of penetrating to the hidden causes and realities that lie behind outer appearances. Contemporary life cannot fully be understood by an analysis that is restricted to external events, he says. Deeper levels of meaning are revealed when one begins to view such events as symptoms. The causes of these symptoms – the reality behind them – are to be discovered on other levels of existence.

Steiner demonstrates such a ‘symptomatological’ approach in these lectures, surveying some of the great developments in consciousness that have helped form the world over the last centuries. He examines the role of true socialism, the rise of nationalism, and characterises contrasting approaches to religion by drawing a distinction between ‘the People of the Christ’ in Russia, ‘the People of the Church’ in Central Europe, and ‘the People of the Lodges’ in the West.

Amongst the wealth of material covered here, Rudolf Steiner discusses ‘the mystery of evil’ and ‘the mystery of death’, the birth of the consciousness soul, the significance of the scientific mode of thought, the metaphysical element in the study of history, as well as specific events such as the Russian Revolution and the suppression of the Knights Templar. He also reviews the circumstances surrounding the publication of new editions of his books The Philosophy of Freedom and Goethe’s World View. Anyone seeking a more profound understanding of our times will find a firm basis for a meaningful exploration in this course of lectures.

<B>Grail Mystery and the Seven Liberal Arts, The </B><I> </I>, LUTTERS, FRANS
4 Grail Mystery and the Seven Liberal Arts, The
1936367653 / 9781936367658 
Charlemagne established schools in each of his courts throughout Europe. He wished for an educated citizenry and yearned for literacy himself. His schools had noteworthy Knights of the Grail, as well as Druid/Christian monks from the British Isles and Ireland, as teachers. The Seven Liberal Arts formed the structure of the schooling offered to those of all ages in the school. This book thoroughly and visually carries the reader through this high-level educational art form, a form Waldorf schools are working to recapitulate and transform for the modern world now. It provides a beautifully articulated structure for educators to adopt in organizing their work to ensure highly educated, logical and artistic thinkers, as well as providing parents ideas for the holistic educating of their children. The book carries rich and comprehensive research as well as inspiring visionary appeal for the future. It is illustrated with pictures from the Middle Ages with woven mythology entwined with history and plans for our educational future.

"Frans Lutters has written a very intriguing and useful book. Teachers should find it helpful to see aspects of the Waldorf curriculum in their broader context, with the underlying spiritual significance for human development. In fact, anyone interested in human development can benefit from this perspective. As a musician, I found it helpful to see the place of music in the context of the seven liberal arts." --Colleen Shetland, lyricist, singer, editor

<B>Knights Templar, The </B><I> The Mystery of the Warrior Monks.  The Mystery of the Warrior Monks</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  VON ARNIM, C.
5 Knights Templar, The The Mystery of the Warrior Monks. The Mystery of the Warrior Monks
1855841797 / 9781855841796 2007 Paperback 
Founded in the early twelfth century, allegedly to protect pilgrims to the Holy Land, the Knights Templar became famous for their pioneer banking system, crusading zeal, and strict vows of obedience, chastity and poverty. Having grown to some 15,000 men, they came to be perceived as a threat by Philip the Fair, who in 1307 disbanded the group and tortured their leaders for confessions. The French king accused the order of heresy, sodomy and blasphemy. Recent works of fiction and popular histories have created a resurgence of interest in the mysterious Knights Templar. Numerous contradictory and fantastic claims are made about them, adding to the enigma that already surrounds the warrior monks of France. In this unique collection of lecture material and writings from Rudolf Steiner, a new perspective emerges. Based on his spiritual perceptions, Steiner speaks of the Templars' connection to the esoteric tradition of St John, their relationship with the Holy Grail, and their spiritual dedication to Christ. He describes the secret order that existed within the Templars, and the strange rituals they performed.
He also throws light on the Templars' attitude to the Roman Church, and the spiritual forces that inspired their torture and confessions.

<B>Legends of King Arthur </B><I> </I>, WYATT, ISABEL
6 Legends of King Arthur
0863158307 / 9780863158308 2011 Paperback 
b/w illustrations
Enter a world of duels and jousting, where knights battle to protect the honour of fair maidens and defend King Arthur's castle. Knights meet in fellowship at Camelot, and are entertained with feasting and pageantry. Honour and chivalry are valued above all else, and courageous knights fight strange, unearthly foes to prove themselves worthy of a place at King Arthur's table. These ancient tales have been told since the fifth century when Welsh bards travelled the country entertaining lords and ladies with stories and songs. They were retold in verse by Chretien de Troyes in his twelfth-century Le Morte d'Arthur, and in prose by Sir Thomas Malory in the fifteenth century. Now, renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt presents her own fresh retelling of a selection of these fascinating legends.

<B>Mystery of Arthur at Tintagel, The </B><I> An Esoteric Study</I>, SEDDON, RICHARD
7 Mystery of Arthur at Tintagel, The An Esoteric Study
1855843889 / 9781855843882 
The ancient and dramatic headland of Tintagel and its ruins, on the windswept north Cornish coast, have been linked to the legends of Merlin, King Arthur and his Knights since ancient times. In this well-researched, illustrated book, Richard Seddon reveals the inner spiritual meaning of Tintagel as a centre for the pre-Christian Mysteries. For many centuries its enigmatic site was integral to the evolution of human consciousness as a centre for esoteric wisdom – for the linking of the physical and spiritual worlds, art and religion.
Richard Seddon offers new insights into the roles of Arthur, Merlin and the Knights of the Round Table, and looks in detail at how they are linked to the metaphysical truths to be found in the works of Taliesin, the Mabinogion and the legends of Parsifal and the Holy Grail. He brings to light the unifying spiritual tradition that stretches beyond Arthur and Tintagel to the mysteries of modern times, as elucidated by the Austrian-born initiate Rudolf Steiner. Readers of this work will discover many new dimensions to the Arthurian and Celtic legends as well as the historical site at Tintagel.
RICHARD SEDDON studied Moral Sciences (Philosophy, Ethics, Logic and Psychology) at Cambridge with Bertrand Russell and John Wisdom – an advocate and colleague of Ludwig Wittgenstein. Seddon spent his working life as a personnel manager. A student of anthroposophy for many decades, he is the author of several books including The Future of Humanity, Philosophy as an Approach to the Spirit, Europa and Mani, His Life and Work.

<B>Parzival </B><I> An Introduction.</I>, HUTCHINS, EILEEN
9 Parzival An Introduction.
190699935X / 9781906999353 2012 Paperback 
‘Eschenbach is the first medieval poet to represent a character who has to win his way through trial and error, from ignorance to wisdom, and from fascination with the world of the senses to recognition of higher realms of experience. In this sense he is representative of modern man.’ - from the Introduction

As a naive and innocent young man, Parzival encounters a group of noble knights in the forest. Overcome by the leading knight’s shining armour, he assumes that the man must be a God. This key turning point in Parzival’s life inspires him to seek to become a knight himself, and immediately he embarks upon a quest to find King Arthur’s court and ultimately the Holy Grail. Through his journeys Parzival is to learn many unexpected lessons, discovering qualities of empathy, humility, compassion and ultimately true and selfless love.

Filled with spiritual wisdom and artistic beauty, Parzival is one of the greatest works of world literature. In this concise, accessible introduction to the central Gail story, Eileen Hutchins describes the key characters, including Parzival’s father Gamuret and mother Herzeleide, and relates the tale in outline. Her classic study also features commentary on the book’s historical background, essays on its significance today, and a comparison with other Grail Romances.

EILEEN HUTCHINS studied at Oxford University and began a career in teaching. Quickly disillusioned with contemporary educational thought and practise, she discovered the pedagogical ideas of Rudolf Steiner. Inspired by the Waldorf approach, she helped found Elmfield School in the West Midlands in 1934. She was a popular lecturer and wrote many articles until her death in 1987.

<B>Tree of Life and the Holy Grail, The </B><I> Ancient and Modern Spiritual Paths and the Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau</I>, FRANCKE, SYLVIA
12 Tree of Life and the Holy Grail, The Ancient and Modern Spiritual Paths and the Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau
1902636872 / 9781902636870 2007 Paperback 
8 pages colour plates + 20 halftones
Recent works of fiction and popular history have promoted the idea that the Holy Grail symbolizes a physical bloodline resulting from the union of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. This, supposedly, is the 'secret' that esoteric movements have kept tirelessly for the past 2,000 years. From her groundbreaking research, Sylvia Francke exposes this notion to be a blatant misinterpretation of the mystery traditions that preceded and ran parallel to the birth of Christianity. She traces the ancient spiritual paths of knowledge from the Cathars, the Knights Templar and the enigmatic Rosicrucians, to the work of Rudolf Steiner in the twentieth century. Here, she concludes, is true Grail knowledge: the Tree of Life and the Holy Grail itself explained in their metaphysical context. From her research, she suggests a solution to the riddle of the sudden wealth and strange behaviour of Berenger Sauniere, the mysterious priest of Rennes-le-Chateau in southern France. True Grail knowledge, she concludes, has nothing to do with bloodlines or worldly status, but is an ancient lifeline to the spiritual origins of creation.
Its energetic forces ray up from the earth and down from the constellations and planets while interacting with individual human beings. It holds the key to the fulfilment of mankind's quest, a step to the next phase of human evolution...The recent explosion of interest in an alternative history of Christianity - the shadow Grail - prompted Sylvia Francke to revise "The Tree of Life and the Holy Grail", first published in 1996. The result is a completely reworked and expanded book that constitutes a powerful and convincing refutation of distorted esoteric truths.

<B>Unveiling the Mystery of Dante </B><I> An Esoteric Understanding of Dante and his Divine Comedy</I>, BISBOCCI, ERIC L.
13 Unveiling the Mystery of Dante An Esoteric Understanding of Dante and his Divine Comedy
1584209712 / 9781584209713 
This unique study examines Dante’s Divine Comedy in relation to the evolution of consciousness and explores Dante’s connection to the Knights Templar, the Fedeli d’amore, and other esoteric movements in his eternal quest for Divine Wisdom (Sophia), personified in the figure of Beatrice. By analyzing the poetry of Dante and the Fedeli d’amore, the author investigates the existence of a “secret language” and the transmission of sacred knowledge hidden within the lyrics of those who partook in the Dolce Stil Novo (Sweet New Style), the most significant literary movement in Italy during the 13th century.

Eric Bisbocci tells of how the “beatification of woman” was intimately connected to the transformation of being, while probing the internal dynamics of the initiatory practices relevant to that period. Finally, he reveals the relationship between the poetry of the Fedeli d’amore and that of the Troubadours, as well as that of the Sufi poets before them—all while questioning the efficacy of modern literary theory to fathom the esoteric meaning of Dante’s poem. All of this culminates with an in-depth analysis of the Divine Comedy in its entirety, canto by canto, based on the threefold nature of the human being—thinking, feeling, and willing—as outlined by Rudolf Steiner.

The principle aim of this book is to perceive the Divine Comedy as a “Spiritual Imagination.” Thus, the author’s ultimate reason for writing it is not to defend one particular interpretation of the Divine Comedy but, rather, to show how it can be imagined in such a way that it provides a blueprint whereby students of classical literature can find their own ways to configure a work of art imaginatively to better understand its relation to their own lives.

Speech of the Grail, SUSSMAN, LINDA
14 Speech of the Grail
094026269X / 9780940262690 1995 Paperback 
Storyteller and ceremonialist Linda Sussman explores how to speak in a new way that is one that heals and transforms. She takes the epic story of the grail, as told by Wolfram von Eschenbach in "Parzival", as her guide. This tale weaves together Celtic, Oriental, Christian, Arthurian and alchemical sources. Linda Sussman sees "Parzival" as depicting the path of initiation to healing speech, to doing the truth in word and deed. First, she tells the story in a beautiful way, allowing the reader to reproduce within themselves the potent inner pictures of the text. Then she shows that it is not so much a path toward perfection, as the recovery of a right relationship to our imperfections. She shows, too that it is a path in which male and female aspects work together in the overcoming of evil.
