A Vision for the Millennium - a Rudolf Steiner Anthroposophy bookA Vision for the Millennium
Modern Spirituality and Cultural Renewal
from the works of Rudolf Steiner
compiled and edited by Andrew Welburn

A Vision for the Millennium is a compilation of excerpts from Rudolf Steiner's many books and lectures which provides an excellent introduction to his spiritual millennial vision. It includes commentary on the significance of the millennium, the necessary transformation of all areas of practical life, the importance of spiritual ecology, the transfiguration of the earth, and the roles of angelic and other spiritual entities in our time.

Could it not be possible that today something of infinite importance is taking place without people being aware of it . . . .  Something of supreme importance is taking place, although it is perceptible only to the eye of the spirit.                 – Rudolf Steiner

For many people, the turn of the millennium has come to symbolize a new beginning. It is a time to stop, reassess and question where we are going, both individually and collectively. It is also a time to examine our philosophy and values.

Andrew Welburn, PhD, is the author of several hooks including The Beginnings of Christianity, The Truth of Imagination, and An Introduction to Visionary Poetry. He has also edited and introduced several collections of Rudolf Steiner’s philosophical thought. He has been a Fellow of the Warburg Institute, the University of London and New College, Oxford, where he now teaches.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', which he defined as 'the consciousness of one's humanity', and the disciplined methods of studying this he termed ‘spiritual science’.  As a highly developed clairvoyant and spiritual initiate, he spoke from his direct cognition of the spiritual world. However, he did not see his work as religious or sectarian, but rather sought to found a universal 'science of the spirit'.

His many published works (written books and lectures) - which include his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development - invite readers to develop their own spiritual faculties.  He also provided indications for the renewal of many human activities, including education - both general and special - agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. He wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe, and in 1924 founded the General Anthroposophical Society which today has branches throughout the world.
