today we ask you to help the Rudolf Steiner Archive. We survive
on small donations averaging about $13 and a yearly grant. Only a tiny
portion of our 30,000+ daily readers donate. If everyone reading this
right now gave $3, our fundraising would be done within an hour. That's
right, the price of a cup of coffee is all we need. We're a very small
not-for-profit company with costs of a very large website: bandwidth,
servers, and equipment. The Rudolf Steiner Archive is something
special. It is like a public library where we can all go to learn and
grow. If the Rudolf Steiner Archive is useful to you, please take
one minute to keep it online and serving the world.
Thank you, everyone!

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:
Jan van Ruysbroeck,
Cardinal Nicolas of Cusa,
Agrippa of Nettesheim,
Giordano Bruno, and

Ein Überblick über die wesentlichen
Erscheinungsformen der abendändischen Mystik von Meister
Eckhart bis Angelus Silesius. Die Besonderheit der in diesem Band
vorgestellten Betrachtungsweise liegt vor allem darin, dass
Rudolf Steiner einen inneren Zusammenhang zwischen den mystischen
Strömungen gegen Ende des Mittelalters und der Entwicklung
der modernen Naturwissenschaft aufzuzeigen vermag.
Mysticism at the Dawn of the Modern Age
This book 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 translated by

Eleven European Mystics
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.”
