What is Nietzsche’s view of Christ beyond the standard interpretation of Christianity and the Church? Does Nietzsche have something more to say than the theologian’s blood poisons all our modern instincts and ideas? In this paper we examine the corruption that is historically foundational and formative of modern philosophy and ways of being. It focuses on his late work Der Antichrist and that which commentators most often ignore or miss, specifically the evangel. We shall have a look at two falsification theses in particular, each possessing a homology immanent to the text.

John Mandalios has taught German metaphysics and ancient Greek philosophy for twenty years. He has worked in Paris and London and currently researches the work of Nietzsche, Leibniz and Plato. The question of atheism and post-secularism is a central research theme. He teaches philosophy at the Melbourne School of Continental Philosophy.
