This book originated in lectures Steiner gave to a small circle of theosophists and constitutes the earliest public exposition of his spiritual scientific research. In it Steiner deals with the impact of modern scientific thinking on our spiritual experiences and the conflict between reason and revelation. He looks at how eleven European mystics resolved the dichotomy between their inner spiritual perceptions and individual freedom and the age of invention and discovery then coming to birth. It was originally published in German as, Die Mystik Im Aufgange des Neuzeitlichen Geisteslebens und Ihr Verhaeltnis zur Modernen Weltanschauung.

The individuals considered are:
    Meister Eckhart,
    Johannes Tauler,
    Heinrich Suso,
    Jan van Ruysbroeck,
    Cardinal Nicolas of Cusa,
    Agrippa of Nettesheim,
    Paracelsus,
    Valentin Weigel,
    Jacob Boehme,
    Giordano Bruno, and
    Angelus Silesius.

Eleven European Mystics
Book Cover Image This book is the fruit of Steiner's lecturing activity. The substance of it was contained in a series of lectures he gave in Berlin beginning just after Michaelmas in 1900, when he was thirty-nine. Steiner later wrote, “By means of the ideas of the mystics from Meister Eckhart to Jacob Boehme, I found expression for the spiritual perceptions which, in reality, I decided to set forth. I then summarized the series of lectures in the book, Mysticism at the Dawn of the Modern Age.”
