Most people are familiar with an image of St. Michael and the Dragon. Through Christoph-Andreas Lindenberg’s words and David Newbatt’s images, this book explores other attributes of St. Michael, in such a way that they reveal a twelvefold balance of key noble qualities that the human being can strive for.
In addition to these virtues, the book also describes, in contrast, the all-too-recognizable failings of human nature, which have to be recognized and understood before they can be overcome.
Twelve Aspects of Michael originated with Christoph-Andreas Lindenberg giving a lecture in a Camphill Community in 1962 on images of Michael, and with further encouragement from the founder of the Camphill Movement, Dr. Karl König, he explored the counter-images. Lindenberg’s research led to the talk reproduced in this book. In 1991, David Newbatt was commissioned by the Camphill Community in Botton Village to illustrate this theme as part of their work on the subject.
Both the lecture by Lindenberg and the illustrations by Newbatt can be an invaluable source of inspiration for those who wish to research further the questions of human nature while looking for ways to live, work and, inwardly develop in relationship to one another.
