The Seasons and Their Festivals: Human, Earthly and Cosmic Rhythms (Karl Konig Archive #21) (Paperback)

Through his work as a physician, Karl Konig explored the relationship between the rhythm of the seasons, the Christian festivals, thinking in particular about their effect on human beings and communities.

This fascinating collection of Konig's essays, lectures and notes looks at the cycle of the year and the different aspects of all the Christian festivals, from Easter to the Twelve Holy Days of Christmas. Konig discusses the idea that human beings can derive inner strength from festival celebrations through an active social life and participation in community, and also that a strong, healthy community life relies on the celebration of festivals.

Karl Konig (1902-66) was well-known as a physician, author and lecturer. He began his work at the Institute of Embryology at the University of Vienna.
