About this title


Written by independent Steiner scholar, Dr. Adrian Anderson, author of 17 books, including the Rudolf Steiner Handbook.

The theme of this book is of interest to those readers who have a deep respect for the teachings of Rudolf Steiner.

In 1910, Rudolf Steiner told an audience in Oslo, Norway, that a deity known in the Edda as 'Vidar', was an Archangel known from ancient times, and who now provided the spiritual essence of anthroposophical wisdom. He also mentioned that the Druids had made a carving of this deity, and that this statue had been discovered in Germany, although experts in ancient artworks remain baffled as to whom this four-sided sandstone statue actually portrays.

* Contemplating the meaning of Rudolf Steiner's various references to Vidar
* Exploring the attributes of Vidar from the Old Icelandic of the Edda
* The history of the statue; how it was first discovered after the Renaissance
* The drawing of the statue made in 1608
* Reconstructing how the statue originally appeared, prior to being damaged
* Unveiling the meaning of the enigmatic features of the Druidic statue
* The close significance of Vidar to esoteric Christianity
* The connection of Vidar to the Holy Grail in its deepest meaning
* Unveiling the meaning of Vidar's shoe
* Seven Appendices on various related themes
