The Two Foundation Stones (Zoom)
Friday 3 June 7pm - 8.30pm
with Dr. Douglas Miller
On a stormy night in late September 1913 in Dornach Switzerland Rudolf Steiner laid the dodecahedral copper Foundation Stone for a building that was to serve as the centre for the work of the Anthroposophical Society. Nearly a decade later that building, constructed by an international group of artisans as a world war raged, was lost to an arsonist’s fire on New Year’s Eve Vowing to continue, Rudolf Steiner set about rebuilding, and he laid a newFoundation Stone during the refounding of the Anthroposophical Society at Christmas 1923—this time in the form of a meditation for Society members. Dr. Miller’s presentation will offer an opportunity to explore the importance of these two foundation stones—their relationship and meaning for anthroposophy, for the work of Rudolf Steiner, and for the world.
Dr. Douglas Miller is a retired professor of German at the University of Michigan–Flint in the United States; his research, publication, and lecturing has focused on Goethe’s accomplishments as a scientist and writer, as well as on the history and meaning of Rudolf Steiner and anthroposophy.
