At the height of his powers, the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner presented a two-week conference at Oxford. The ‘Oxford Holiday Conference’ was titled ‘Spiritual Values in Education & Social Life’, and it was this conference, in the summer 1922 (15-29 August), that laid the foundations for establishing Waldorf education in Britain, and from there the rest of the Anglophone world. There were 230 attendees. All of the 12 morning lectures were presented by Steiner in the Arlosh Hall of Manchester College, Oxford. The reception was held in the Manchester College Library with the welcome by the College principal, Professor L P Jacks. On the Sunday, Steiner preached in the Manchester College Chapel. Afternoon lectures were presented by 14 speakers at the nearby Keble College.
