Leonardo's masterpiece decayed and fell into ruin by about 1550, but the "Idea" that it embodied was inspired from a high spiritual source, and contains deep truths of esoteric Christianity, especially in regard to the link between the zodiac and the Logos, the cosmic Christ, Jesus himself and his 12 Disciples. Rudolf Steiner taught that the Idea behind the painting is what is of value, and his approach to Leonardo's masterpiece was to make use of the superb copy painted by Giampetrino, who was himself a student of Leonardo.
Over several years, Dr. Anderson used his expertise in re-freshing damaged artworks of an esoteric nature, to re-create as far as possible, what Leonardo's Last Supper looked like, some 500 years ago; a task that was primarily based on the Giampetrino copy. He then accessed and translated an unpublished Archive document, which records Rudolf Steiner's astonishing comments about the Zodiac in relation to the Last Supper and the Disciples.
Using the notes of Rudolf Steiner's archive document, and his expertise in anthroposophy together with his scholarship in the Greek of the New Testament, Adrian reveals the various esoteric meanings alluded to in the painting.
The especially re-created version of the Last Supper used in this book is available as an art print.
