Steiner Online Library Spiritual Science for Human Evolution

Welcome to the new Steiner Online Library!

As we add new content here, you will find the largest online collection of the digital works of Dr. Rudolf Steiner in English in the world. We aim to bring this material to a new generation of spiritual researchers through the use of web technologies geared towards tablets and mobile devices. Dr. Steiner’s work will remain available at Rudolf Steiner Archive. If you can’t find what you are looking for here at this time, please look for it on the Archive. That material soon will be posted here as well!

As background, in early 2021 the e.Lib, Inc. transferred its assets relating to the Rudolf Steiner Archive, its technology and materials to SOL to ensure they continue to be made available to people around the world. Since then, the SOL team of Dr. Christopher Wietrzykowski, Executive director, and Karin Wietrzykowski, Esq., Director of Operations, have developed this new streamlined, modernized SOL website. By updating the site to suit all devices and types of users, we will reach a broader audience around the world and grow Anthroposophy worldwide.

The Steiner Online Library is a donation-based service. Please consider contributing to help spread this information to fellow researchers and students of Rudolf Steiner. Together, in these times of turmoil, we can ensure this digital library survives for future generations.

Quotes

"You can see from this, my dear friends, what mischief will be set on foot if the truths of Spiritual Science are withheld. For man will be exposed to the forces of evil, and he will only be protected from it by giving himself up to the spiritual life of the good. To withhold the spiritual life of goodness from men is to be no friend to humanity. Whoever does this, be he Freemason or Jesuit, is no friend to humanity. For it means handing men over to the forces of evil. And there may be a purpose in doing so. This purpose may be to confine goodness to a small circle, in order by the help of this goodness to dominate the helpless humanity who are thus led by evil into the follies of life."

—Rudolf Steiner,
Spiritual Science Notes On Goethe's Faust, Vol. II, No. 273-8.

Calendar of the Soul

In 1912 Rudolf Steiner offered a “calendar of the soul” with weekly verses that express how the changing seasons in both the outer natural world and our inner lives help humanity evolve. Download and read the verses in four translations with commentary by Eloise Krivosheia of the Los Angeles Branch of the Anthroposophical Society.
