This review is from: The Spiritual Origins of Eastern Europe and the Future Mysteries of the Holy Grail (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.
