Anthroposophy means – literally translated – the “wisdom of man”. It is a worldwide represented spiritual and esoteric worldview as well as the associated path of education and cognition. It teaches the way to self-knowledge, self-redemption and the knowledge of the supersensible world.
The founder of this movement, which emerged in the 20th century, is Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925). In a universal way he has tried to merge many spiritual-historical currents like Buddhism, Christianity, Theosophy, Gnosticism, Mysticism, Idealism, but also Spiritism and Magic into one unity. Based on this teaching, he developed his own concepts for various areas of social life, including anthroposophical architecture, Waldorf education, anthroposophical medicine (Weleda), biodynamic agriculture (Demeter cultivation), eurythmy.

Anthroposophy has as its goal to explore the human being. Concentration exercises should lead to the mastery of thought and will and awaken the occult powers dormant in man. Through an act of clairvoyance man shall penetrate to the vision of the supersensible world and his former forms of life. The biblical way of salvation of faith in the Savior is replaced by the way of mystical seeing. One of the main pieces of anthroposophical teaching is the idea of reincarnation. It means that man must reincarnate every 800 years. Reincarnation cannot be reconciled with the Bible. Our unique life, in its attitude to Jesus Christ, is decisive and determines where we spend eternity.
“And just as it is ordained that every man die but once, after which judgment follows, so also Christ died but once as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many. He will come again, but not once more for our sins, but to bring salvation to all those who eagerly await his return.” (Hebrews 9:27-28)
