This was his attempt to create a Society for a Theosophical Art and Way of Life, that would work under the protectorate of Christian Rosenkreutz. Rudolf Steiner envisaged a grouping of individuals who were ...deeply moved by a spiritual power like the one that lived earlier in Christianity. Through the forming of such a Society, he sought to enable a true spiritual culture to arise on earth - a culture that would engender artists in every domain of life. Virginia Seases reflections - a century after Rudolf Steiners attempt - place a special emphasis on three considerations. Firstly, that the Endowment impulse allows us to experience the art of interpreting in the Rosicrucian way. Secondly, that the best initiative, even one undertaken by a great individuality, is doomed to failure if the participants are unable to overcome their personal ambitions.And finally, that we may live with the fact that, despite the passing of time, the seeds dormant in Rudolf Steiners attempt still have the possibility to come to fruition in the future.
