The reign of the Michael-Mysteries has held sway in humanity since the beginning of the contemporary Michael-epoch in 1879. In the centre of these mysteries stands the true spiritual path to Christ on which Michael, as the current Time-spirit and cosmic countenance of Christ, would like to guide human beings.
The Michael-Mysteries moreover represent the key for the entire future development of earth evolution, with the aim that the earth may become a new Sun in our cosmos. For Michael was the Archangel of the Sun from the beginning.
In a special way his mysteries are connected with the karma of the anthroposophical movement. Anthroposophy was supersensibly prepared in the Sun-kingdom of Michael as a gift to humanity. This secret must be revealed today. Therein is contained the task of Anthroposophy. As its founder, Rudolf Steiner dedicated his entire life and work to this task. The culmination and at the same time testament of this spiritual teacher is the Michael-Meditation, also called the Michael-Imagination, with which Rudolf Steiner concluded his Last Address to anthroposophists the evening before Michaelmas 1924.
In this book, by way of Rudolf Steiner's spiritual research, a summation of the Michael-Mysteries is given in connection with the content of the Michael-Meditation, as well as the foundation of the eurythmic presentation according to the forms that Rudolf Steiner created while on his sick bed.
The Michael-Mystery, now available in English, was the penultimate book written by Sergei O. Prokofieff before his death in 2014.
