Book – The Thirteen Holy Nights and the Anthroposophical Christmas


The Thirteen Holy Nights are a recap of the entire history of Mankind: from the Lemuric Era on Christmas Eve, the Ancient Feast of Adam and Eve; to Christmas, the birth of the soul of the Second Adam of the Jesus of the Luke Gospel; to the Epiphany, with the arrival of the Three Kings visiting the Jesus of the Matthew Gospel; and, finally, to the Christmas of Christ, that is the descent of the Sun Spirit into Jesus of Nazareth during the Baptism in the River Jordan. The forces of the Zodiac, with which disciples of the esoteric way can work inwardly, descend to Earth on each of these Holy Nights.

The Thirteen Holy Nights are considered both from the point of view of the indications imparted directly by Rudolf Steiner to his disciple Herbert Hahn and from that of the Christological indications imparted by Sergei Prokofieff. Each Holy Night is accompanied by comments on both points of view, and their occult relationships, which are the result of meditations on the Thirteen Holy Nights themselves. This book helps to prepare for the Christmas period from the spiritual science and anthroposophical point of view; it also contains a guide to the four weeks of Advent, New Year’s Eve and the symbolism of the Christmas Tree.

The book The Thirteen Holy Nights and the Anthroposophical Christmas, published by Psiche 2, is available in all bookstores.
