The fourth drama enters new terrain based on what has been achieved in the first three dramas. The end of those brought about the unifying of the various main characters in a Temple ceremony whereby they consecrated themselves to take over the work of the traditional Mystics for modern times. Up until this point, the dramas had been concerned with personal development, the achieving of spiritual vision, the beholding and integrating of a correct view of Karma. But now the step has to be taken to bring all this into a concrete relationship with the modern world. The task of the Mystics had been to preserve in secret the mysteries of humanity. The task of the new Temple servants is to bring those mysteries to humanity again and make them fruitful in the modern world. This requires, on the one hand, a willingness to approach the elements of the world and interact with them, and on the other, the cultivating of an inner knowledge which will give one the new faculties and strength to do that. The essential question thus arising for all of them, illustrated by the greatly increased role Benedictus plays in this fourth drama, is the question of spiritual help and from where and under what conditions it can come to us. Not only Lucifer and Ahriman are here operating for their own intersts, good human beings and good spiritual beings are working, too, and who these are, where these are, and what relation we can have to them is a matter of the greatest urgency for humanity at this time.
