Towards the end of his life, Rudolf Steiner published a series of weekly letters addressed to the members of the Anthroposophical Society. Among them were fourteen letters in which he described the mission of the Archangel Michael, the mighty spiritual being who has accompanied humanity' s evolution from primordial times right up to the present day. In this insightful book, Charles Kovacs draws on his knowledge of Steiner' s work to provide a deeper understanding of the history and ideas that inform each letter. He shows how the Archangel Michael is the great champion of human freedom in the modern age and how he can help us transcend divisions of national identity to embrace a truly universal view of humanity.
Charles Kovacs (1907--2001) was born in Austria. After the Second World War he settled in Britain, and in 1956 he took over a class at the Rudolf Steiner School in Edinburgh, where he remained a class teacher until his retirement in 1976. Kovacs is the author of a highly-respected series of books for Steiner-Waldorf teachers based on his extensive lesson notes, as well as books on religion and spirituality, including The Apocalypse in Rudolf Steiner' s Lecture Series, The Spiritual Background to Christian Festivals and Christianity and the Ancient Mysteries.
