Oskar Kürten, PhD
Oskar Lambert Kürten, PhD,was born in Anleur, Belgium, in 1886. He lost his hearing during his student years, becoming almost completely deaf. Despite this, he held a senior position in the Berlin State Statistical Office for more than fifty years. He developed an interest in spiritual worldviews and had an inner experience that anthroposophy would become his personal path. He lived for and out of anthroposophy, especially Rudolf Steiner’s Christ impulse, penning the trilogy contained in Mystery of the Christ. Kürten is also the author of Symphonies of Creation: The Primal Elementary Kingdoms in the Work of Rudolf Steiner (Temple Lodge 2018). He died in 1973 in Berlin.
