Product Description

About the Author

SERGEI O. PROKOFIEFF, born in Moscow in 1954, studied painting and art history at the Moscow School of Art. He encountered anthroposophy in his youth, and soon made the decision to devote his life to it. He has been active as an author and lecturer since 1982, and in 1991 he co-founded the Anthroposophical Society in Russia. In Easter 2001 he became a member of the Executive Council of the General Anthroposophical Society in Dornach. He is the author of dozens of books, including May Human Beings Hear It!, The Occult Significance of Forgiveness and The Appearance of Christ in the Etheric.

First Sentence
Amongst the many observations which Rudolf Steiner made in various connections about the historical destiny of Eastern Europe-about its spiritual origins and its future-there are two which particularly arrest one's attention, inasmuch as they give one a certain awareness of those esoteric foundations which enable one to see more clearly the profound relationship between its past and its future, between the spiritual impulses with which it was originally imbued and the possibilities of their future fulfilment. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover
This is a remarkable book, one of the most important published in half a century. It follows from an anthroposophical spiritual perspective the road of the Russian and other Slavic or Slavonic peoples through the previous ages, in the present 5th Post-Atlantean Age (c.1415-c.3500) and into the further future. It is written by the grandson of the composer Prokofiev. The author has written other Anthroposophical works, one or two of which I have read and been impressed by (though not his polemic on Tomberg).

There are things in this book new to me, not least the exposition of the Bolshevik disaster, including the physical degeneration of the brain of Lenin and the fact that, at his death, it was almost entirely fossilized or sclerotic. Fascinating.

As with his other books seen by me, his publishers need a kick in the rear for not including an index! Especially at nearly £30 a copy!

The notes are often long and a fascinating read in themselves, though I was puzzled by what I took to be one error in a note, that the Moon would re-unite with the Earth in the "American" or 7th Post-Atlantean Age. Steiner himself put that reunification in the 7th LARGE epoch i.e. a much more distant future (see Occult Science--- An Outline).

This work should be widely disseminated among cultured people, particularly in Russia in its original Russian script. I disagree with the author, who attempts to restrict it to those with an Anthroposophical background.
