In particular, I will draw on the Philosophy of Right as well as later lectures and writings of Hegel, including his lectures on the philosophy of history, his lectures on the philosophy of religion, and the third edition of the Encyclopedia. Some commentators, such as Walter Jaeschke, have suggested that Hegel’s understanding of the relationship between religion and politics changed between the publication of the Philosophy of Right and the third edition of the Encyclopedia. Although Hegel’s emphases in these texts may be different, I believe that with regard to the relationship between church and state, the discontinuities are not as significant as Jaeschke suggests, and I will note the reasons for this view where relevant.
