Christianity As Mystical Fact and the Mysteries of Antiquity. by Rudolf Steiner (Berlin, 1902). Bibliographical Note. Rudolf Steiner's Christianity as Mystical Fact and the Mysteries of Antiquity (Das Christentum als mystische Tatsache) was first published by C. A. Schwetschke and Son, Berlin, 1902. It was dedicated to Count and Countess Brockdorff and also to my dear Vienna Friends, Rosa Mayreder and Moritz Zitter.

Christianity as Mystical Fact was the title given by the author to this work, when, eight years ago, he gathered into it the substance of lectures delivered by him in 1902. The title indicated the special character of the book. In it the attempt was made, not merely to represent historically the mystical content of Christianity, but to describe the origin of Christianity from the standpoint of mystical contemplation. It is only the book itself which can make clear that by "mystical" its author does not imply a conception which relies more on vague feelings than on "strictly scientific statements. It is true that "mysticism" is at present widely understood in the former sense, and hence it is declared by many to be a sphere of the human soul life with which "true science" can have nothing to do.

Author : Steiner Rudolf Title : Christianity as Mystical Fact and the mysteries of antiquity Year : 1914. CHRISTIANITY as Mystical Fact was the title given by the author to this work, when, eight years ago, he gathered into it the substance of lectures delivered by him in 1902. In this book the word "mysticism" is used in the sense of the representation of a spiritual fact, which can only be recognised in its true nature when the knowledge of it is derived from the sources of spiritual life itself.

I have read several Rudolf Steiner books, and in my opinion this one is by far the best for those who have come to mysticism by way of Christianity. Many of Steiner's works are heavy on exercises and practical application; this one however is written in a more informational manner. So, instead of being a "how to" book, it is rather historical information that shows how Chritianity is the completion of the path that the mystery schools of antiquity began to follow. If you have been looking for the link between Mysticism and Christianity, then stop looking and put this book in your cart, because you have found the connection. Rudolf Steiner provides the missing link!

Rudolf Steiner can be a difficult author to follow unless you have PLENTY of time to re-read pages and keep an OPEN MIND. He is an excellent writer, and understood the spiritual realm of our universe with zeal in a time when being open-minded was almost unheard of. We have learned lots from his books. Steiner was a CHRISTIAN who wanted to bring us more in touch with the Spirit World.

The print was so tiny that I returned the book and bought a kindle version of the same poorly edited translation. The kindle version is much easier to read but the typos are a drag.

I learned about this book while reading translator Andrew Welburn's excellent book The Beginnings of Christianity: Essene Mystery, Gnostic Revelation and the Christian Vision. These two books should be treated as a set. I was apprehensive about reading Steiner, not wanting anything to do with occult, psychic, or reincarnation ideas -- fortunately, none of these appear in this particular book.
Highly recommended to anyone who is interested in the original, esoteric forms of Christianity as a Jewish-styled version of the Hellenistic mystery-religion, as described in the book The Jesus Mysteries, by Freke and Gandy.
DEAD-SHOT
great book!

Great Book, but the particular publication is terrible. Does not even mention the translation. The print is all but microscopic. Just a cheap computerjob with zero love or respect to the book contents.

There were glaring errors in this book. It did not appear to be proof read at all.
The publisher disclaimed any responsibility for errors. If the publisher is not responsible, who is?
In this book, Steiner describes how Christianity evolved from earlier esoteric traditions such as the mystery schools, Egyptian and Eastern wisdom, and Greek philosophy.
Steiner interprets the life of Chrsit as a model for the path of an initiate. As examples, he offers elegant insights into parts of the gospels which have previously left me "in the dark." Some say that Steiner's approach to the Christianity has been continued by Joseph Campbell. If you like Campbell, you'll like this book.
This book has reinvigorated Christianity for me-- by showing me how it can be interpreted like a myth. Now I can look at the gospels in a new manner, and gain new insights from them.
I think that it helps to have a little background in Greek philosophy to read this book, but I don't think that its absolutely necessary.
