Thus spoke Rudolf Steiner in his “Last Address” to members of the Anthroposophical Society. This was his first and only indication of the connection between John the Baptist and John the Evangelist. As Prokofieff points out, Steiner intended to develop and bring to full clarity the short comment reproduced above, but his terminal illness prevented him from doing so.

In this brief, enlightening book, Prokofieff addresses the mystery of the “two Johns.” solving many unanswered questions. In particular, he throws light on issues of “incarnation and incorporation,” the nature of John the Baptist’s and John the Evangelist’s respective initiations, the significance of their mutual work at the “Turning Point of Time,” and its relevance to our present day.

After the fall of Communism, he helped establish the Anthroposophical Society in Russia.
