Hermann Beckh

Hermann Beckh (1875-1937) was a brilliant scholar and professor of Oriental Studies at the University of Berlin, writing on Buddhism, Indology and the development of language. In 1911, he heard a lecture by Rudolf Steiner and joined the Anthroposophical Society, going on to become one of the founding priests of The Christian Community. He wrote extensively on religious and philosophical topics in German, but his work is only now starting to become available in English.
