Synopsis: "The great importance of these plays is not that we are given many thoughts to further our understanding of Anthroposophy, but that we are shown the transforming power of spiritual striving in individual lives, and especially the development in human relationships through an awareness of the forces of destiny. In this respect, the Mystery Plays are unique." (from the foreword)

In writing and producing his mystery plays, Rudolf Steiner offered his spiritual observations and concepts from a fresh, artistic perspective. The dramas appeared in the context of the movement of "theatrical realism" during a period when only a handful of dramatists attempted representations of a spiritual world, most presented as fantasy. In introducing spiritual beings to the stage and showing their connections with human beings, Steiner was pioneering a drama for the future.

Eileen Hutchins’s classic work on Steiner’s Mystery Plays provides a thoughtful commentary that helps us enter the minds and souls of the characters. By gaining insights into their relationships and inner lives and the problems and situations they faced, the characters are brought to life. Gradually, we begin to see possible solutions to the complex web of their difficulties.

About the Author: Eileen Hutchins studied at Oxford University and began a career in teaching. Quickly disillusioned with contemporary educational thought and practice, she discovered the pedagogical ideas of Rudolf Steiner. Inspired by the Waldorf approach, she helped found Elmfield School in the West Midlands, UK, in 1934. She was a popular lecturer and wrote many articles until her death in 1987.
