Inner Impulses of Evolution: The Mexican Mysteries and The Knights Templar

Tuesday 8 November 7pm - 8.30pm

with Brendan McQuillan

In these seven lectures from Autumn 1916 Rudolf Steiner talks about the repeated attempts in evolution by the adversarial forces of Lucifer and Ahriman to divert humanity from a positive path. Steiner speaks of the disappointments that the backward forces experienced about their failures to entrap humanity in Atlantean times; of Lucifer and Ahriman’s respective setbacks in ancient Greece and the Roman Empire; and how in our current era, the adversaries have nevertheless re-doubled their onslaughts. By Lucifer this has been manifest in the east in Asia behind Genghis Khan, and by Ahriman in the west behind the Mexican Mysteries; with eff ects, in both cases, that have rebounded on Europe.
