    One thought on “Christ and Sophia: Anthroposophic Meditations on the Old Testament, New Testament, & Apocalypse”

    1. In my opinion this is a great book, definitely is not a sequel to Rudolf Steiner. If you are an independent thinker, not subordinated to controlling religions, dogmas or associations, you will enjoy this enlightening literature. Valentin Tomberg developed his own insights in addition to writings by Steiner and for that very reason Tomberg has been largely attacked. Anyone who tried to go further from Steiner ideas was considered kind of treacher to Anthroposophical Society. As I feel more comfor [...]

    2. I am neither rating this nor saying much as the complex issues here cannot be reduced to a soundbites. Suffice it to say the author specifically requested that his early works (of which this book contains four) not be republished. This no doubt had much to do with the author's astonishing conversion to Catholicism around 1944. There is however much much more about this at my website which contains an archive of materials related to Tomberg with materials hard to find in the English language. Lin [...]

    3. A fascinating and illuminating early work of Valentin Tomberg.The title of this book seems a little deceiving--there isn't much about "Sophia" in this early (pre-Catholic) work of Tomberg's, when he was still a member of the Anthroposophical Society--but it for all that provides deep insights, in a language largely unfamiliar to us "exoteric" Christians, to the Mystery of Golgotha and its central place in human spiritual history and evolution from a more "esoteric" point of view.While still trad [...]

    4. This is Tomberg writing at his most anthroposphical. His ideas are really interesting but you probably need a background in Rudolph Steiner's philosophy and world view to make much of his interesting speculations.

    5. Coherent Platonic Exegesis of the Bible A deep look into the spiritual current from the East. Meditations on the Tarot are what lead me here. Amen.
