"You will find meditative verses for the individual weeks of the year. You should take these meditations quite particularly into your hearts, for they contain what can make the soul alive and what really corresponds to a living relationship of the soul forces to the forces of the macrocosm." Rudolf Steiner
Many are familiar with Rudolf Steiner's work The Calendar of the Soul, the book of fifty-two weekly meditative verses that run from Easter to Easter. Few, however, know anything of its history. In his introduction to this facsimile edition, Christopher Bamford outlines this history with fascinating references to the people surrounding Rudolf Steiner during this period.
The illustrations in this calendar are its outstanding feature, with imagery for the Zodiac and the seasons.
The calendar contains various other interesting features, such as counting from the crucifixin and resurrection rather than from the birth of Jesus;, computing the year from Easter to Easter rather than the usual calendar year; new zodiacal images; new images representing the phases of the evolution of the Earth; weekly meditations; a lunar calendar and others. Rudolf Steienr's own introduction is reproduced in German as well as being presented in translation.
