Art as Seen in the Light of Mystery Wisdom
By Rudolf Steiner
Translated by Pauline Wehrle and Johanna Collis

Art is one of the healthiest, most direct ways to arm and strengthen ourselves against the harmful influences of modern life. Steiner depicts here the transforming power of art with chapters on technology and art, impulses of transformation in artistic evolution, the moral experience of color and tone, and working with sculptural architecture.

These eight lectures were given in Dornach from December 28, 1914 to January 4, 1915. Lectures 2 and 3 were previously published in ‘Art in the Light of Mystery Wisdom.’ These lectures were translated from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer. The original German text is published in the Complete Edition of the works of Rudolf Steiner entitled, Kunst im Lichte der Mysterienweisheit (No. 275 in the Bibliographical Survey 1961).

Translation by Pauline Wehrle (lectures 1 and 4 to 8) and Johanna Collis (lectures 2 and 3). This volume is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
