Abstract and Keywords

More than a decade and a half before he began to deliver separate series of lectures on aesthetics and religion in Berlin, Hegel offered an early account of art in the context of the “Religion” chapter of Phenomenology of Spirit. This chapter examines the importance of Hegel’s emerging perspective on art as offering a key to three main claims that remain crucial for his mature system: the development of a notion of pre-classical “natural religion,” the interpretation of ancient Greek religion as a “religion of art,” and the fundamentally altered stance that Hegel comes to take toward Christianity in a new account of the relation between religion and philosophy.

Keywords: Hegel, art, religion, Christianity, Greek
