The relationship between The Christian Community and the Anthroposophical Society is complicated and frequently misunderstood. The Christian Community priests work from an understanding of Anthroposophy, and it was undoubtedly Steiner’s theological lecture courses that led to the formation of the movement. Nonetheless, questions remain, which Peter Selg examines closely in this unique book.

Steiner’s work emphasizes the importance of finding the spiritual in everyday life. So why did he help found a “Sunday church”?
In his lectures, Steiner spoke of a “spiritual communion” without physical matter. So why is there any need for a sacramental communion with real bread and wine, as practiced in The Christian Community?
In a much-quoted lecture following the establishment of The Christian Community, Steiner said that anthroposophists should have no need of the new religious movement. But on another occasion he said he wished greatly that the movement should succeed. How can these comments be understood and reconciled?

This long-overdue book offers a significant exploration of Steiner’s legacy that should have far-reaching implications for mutual understanding and cooperation between The Christian Community and the broader anthroposophic movement.
