Made out of Nature’s material

The Goetheanum wanted to speak through its forms

Of the eternal to the eyes of men.

The flames were able to consume the matter.

Henceforth Anthroposophia-

Her edifice formed of the Spirit-

Shall speak to the inner soul of man

In words of fire, tempered by the flames-

The flames of the Spirit.


From one of Rudolf Steiner’s note books. April 1923
