Tragedy performs a critical function in Hegel's early writings on theology and politics. Hegel’s overarching goal in those texts is to figure out the type of mythology that may most sensible supplement non secular and political freedom in modernity. Peter Wake claims that, for Hegel at this early level, historic Greek tragedy supplied the version for this kind of mythology and instructed how to oppose the inflexible hierarchies and authoritarianism that characterised Europe of his day. Wake follows Hegel as he develops his suggestion of the essence of Christianity and its relation to the fairly tragic expression of good looks present in Greek mythology.
