This freshly edited collection of seventy-two essays provides a unique overview of Hermann Beckh’s notable and largely overlooked writing career. Whether in the realm of theology, philosophy, the arts, astrology, or esoterica, the articles gathered here (most previously unavailable in English) are rare signposts to a Christian initiation grounded in the Rosicrucian tradition and the path of St John’s Gospel. 

Presented in chronological sequence over a sixteen-year period—from 1922 to 1938—and supplemented with biographical notes and introductory material by Neil Franklin and Alan Stott, this volume provides firm ground for a fuller appreciation of Beckh’s prolific output.

Hermann Beckh

Hermann Beckh (1875–1937) studied Law and later Sanskrit, becoming Professor of Oriental Studies at the University of Berlin. A master of ancient and modern languages, he wrote extensively on religious and philosophical subjects, including Buddhism, Indology, Christianity, alchemy, and music. In 1911, he heard a lecture by Rudolf Steiner and was inspired to join the Anthroposophical Society, where he became a valued coworker. In 1922, he helped found The Christian Community, a movement for religious renewal. His many books are gradually being translated from the original German and published in English.
