The Deed of Christ and the Opposing Spiritual Powers
GA 107

In the first lecture, Steiner shows how in the Lemurian epoch Luciferic beings intervened in human evolution, making possible freedom, material desires, and evil-doing, while in Atlantean times, Ahrimanic beings made possible “conscious sin”; and in our own epoch, Asuric beings will intervene. The deed of Christ alone now makes possible humanity's return to the spiritual. The second lecture deals with “Mephistopheles and Earthquakes.”
