Images, associated with this lecture:

  • Ahrimanic and Luciferic Forces in Spring (Plate 3, GA229)
  • Influence of Ahriman and Lucifer on Human Beings (Plate 4, GA229)
  • Envisioning for the small cupola of the First Goetheanum


“So was Lucifer painted in the cupola, and so is he represented in the sculpture-group which was intended to be the central point of our Goetheanum. Thus, in a certain sense, the Easter mystery was to have stood at this central point. But a completion in some form will be necessary, if one is to grasp the whole idea.” (Rudolf Steiner, The Four Seasons and the Archangels, Rudolf Steiner Press, 1996, p. 40)
