Started in 1980, this is our 42nd year!
We have had an on-line presence, distributing Steiner's words, since 1984!!

With readers in virtually every country, the Rudolf Steiner Archive is truly a world-wide presence for the Anthroposophical Movement. Whether you're a seasoned follower of Rudolf Steiner or here for the first time, this site will challenge your thinking and allow you to experience the world from different points of view.

Start with Theosophy and Knowledge of Higher Worlds then look through the many lectures for topics that pique your interest. Lectures with a GA/Bn (volume#) 100-125 are good ones to start with. Once you get your bearings be sure to read Steiner's other seminal books: Occult Science, The Philosophy of Freedom and Christianity as a Mystical Fact.

Overall, there are 28 books, hundreds of articles and essays, and over 5,000 lectures that Rudolf Steiner gave to the world. Enjoy!

Critical Edition of Rudolf Steiner's Works

  Rudolf Steiner On-line Archiv.

Until recently, a Critical Edition of the works of Rudolf Steiner was not available. This changed when, in 2011, the German publisher frommann-holzboog and Christian Clement began to undertake the development of such an edition. It documents the various textual versions of each book that was published during Steiner's lifetime and thus allows the reader to carefully study the genesis and development of these important texts.

By now (2020), the first section of the edition (8 volumes, writings 1884-1910) has almost been completed. Additional 8 volumes with the writings of 1911-1925 will follow. The edition is scheduled to be completed by 2025. Publisher and editor are hoping that this new edition will be a valuable contribution to a better understanding of anthroposophy and inspire a long overdue discourse on Steiner in the academic world.

All texts, reviews, and other information concerning the edition are available on the editions website:

In 2020, the editor of the Critical Edition has also launched the first peer reviewed academic journal for research on Steiner and anthroposophy:

More volumes are in preparation.
