1920-1941: The Historical Development of In the Light of Truth – The Grail Message

From the Gralsblättern (Grail Papers) to the Final Edition

Abd-ru-shin’s Work In the Light of Truth – The Grail Message came into being during a period of time spanning a little less than two decades. Initially, individual lectures were published in a series of booklets called the Gralsblättern. In 1926 the first, “small” edition of The Grail Message was released; in 1931 a “large,” one-volume edition was issued. Finally, the three-volume book, the Author’s final edition, was published. This is the book that is distributed today.

The history of changes made during the book’s development occasionally leads to misunderstandings. In the following detailed overview you will find information about the individual editions of The Grail Message and the differing rearrangements of the lectures carried out over time by Abd-ru-shin.
