By 1922 Rudolf Steiner had been working publicly for 21 years, producing a dozen books and thousands of lectures. It was the time of his greatest public success, but also of his greatest vulnerability and challenge – including threats on his life. Attacks came from without, but there were also painful divisions and disappointments from within the anthroposophical movement. Nevertheless, the second half of 1922 witnessed the delivery of major lecture cycles, the near completion of the first Goetheanum, the strengthening of the medical work, a kind of culmination of the youth work, and the founding of the Christian Community. 1922 closed with the tragic burning of the First Goetheanum on New Year’s Eve. Perhaps it is not surprising that Steiner begins the new year 1923 with Awakening to Community and The Mission of the Arts.
