Anthroposophy and Religious Renewal?
With Luke Barr
Thursday 21st March 2019
7.30 - 9pm
What relevance can religion have for us in the 21st century? Are ‘spiritual’ and ‘religious’ antithetical terms? Rudolf Steiner was approached by a group of young theology students, disillusioned with what their cultural institutions had to offer them. They recognised that anthroposophy, rightly understood, could inaugurate a perpetually self-renewing culture. They were intrigued to hear from Steiner that religion “in its living practice” could help augment this renewing capacity. This led to the founding of The Christian Community, a movement for religious renewal?
