Bruno Bauer wrote scores of scholarly books which were widely quoted. He was a mentor to Marx and an elder mentor to Nietzsche, and his controversial theology impelled the Prussian government to ban him from lecturing. This remarkable work, first banned, and then ignored contains historical clues into the temper of the time. He advanced Hegel’s theological phenomenology, especially with his treatment of the moment of transition from Stoicism to Christianity.
