Description

The festival of Michaelmas follows on from the autumn equinox and celebrates the archangel Michael. This book is a rich collection of essays on the significant of Michael in our time. It includes perspectives on Michael's appearance and influence around the world, Michael and the Hebrew nations, Christian legends from Egypt and Michael's relationship to the Mystery of Golgotha.

The leading essays are by Rudolf Steiner and Ita Wegman, and the book is beautifully illustrated in colour. It offers teachers and parents alike an abundant selection of stories, tales and legends which explain why Michaelmas continues to be such an important festival, uniting the forces of heaven with the forces of the earth and the seasons.
