St.George and the Dragon
- This is a "compressed" quote from Steiner,in his book "Christ and the
Spiritual World: The Search for the Holy Grail",pages 64-65,in the
1963 hardback edition:
"St.George and the Dragon reflect that celestial event when the
Christ became incarnated and TAMED the Dragon in the soul-nature of
man.The Christ,an angelic Being, had actually to connect himself with
the Dragon-nature; to take on as it were the form of the Dragon in
order to tame it.He had to work from within the Dragon,so that the
Dragon was ennobled and brought out of chaos into a kind of harmony."
My interpretation of this is that it is the Christ who can
resolve the duality within human nature.I would be interested in the
comments of members.
