Origins of Anthroposophy
- I just stumbled across a memorable RS quote:
"John [Lazarus-John the Evangelist] received the Book of Revelation from
regions where Anthroposophy dwelt before descending to human beings."
- "The Book of Revelation and the Work of the Priest" [GA 346] Lecture 9
(Dornach, 13 December 1924).
I wish the lurkers or monitors from PLANS would repeat this quote on their
WC list and compare it to Peter Staudenmaier's confused and misguided
nonsense in "Anthroposophy and Ecofascism", where he describes the origins
of Anthroposophy as follows:
"Anthroposophy and National Socialism both have deep roots in the
confluence of nationalism, right-wing populism, proto-environmentalist
romanticism and esoteric spiritualism that characterized much of German and
Austrian culture at the end of the nineteenth century."
