The Consummation of Religion

(p.203) 6 The Consummation of Religion
Religion, Modernity, and Politics in Hegel

Thomas Lewis

Oxford University Press

Chapter Six takes up Hegel's account of “The Consummate Religion.” The treatment focuses on the hermeneutic Hegel brings to bear — which rests on his conception of the relation between religion and philosophy — as well as precisely what, for Hegel, makes Christianity the “consummate religion.” It examines Hegel philosophical explication of representations at the core of Christian doctrine, particularly the Incarnation and the church. First here, specifically in the 1827 version of these lectures, does Hegel elaborate a conception of Christianity as the civil religion for which he has searching since the 1790s.
