EMERGENCE OF THE YOUNG HEGELIANS 33 In addition to the historiosophical approach, emanating from an infinitist interpretation of Hegel's philosophy or from consistent application of Hegel's dialectical methodology to all the phenomena of the history of mankind, there is an additional factor which constituted a link between the critique of religion commenced by Strauss and other Young Hegelians, such as Feuerbach and Bauer, and criticism of other manifestations of human life, and above all, political ones: the destruction of faith in Jesus as a redeemer or in religious redemption, inevitably created a new vision of salvation achieved on earth.

260. BRUNO BAUER AS A THEOLOGIAN AND CRITIC 37 stemmed from his ideological conflict with Strauss's theories: "After Strauss's great achievement, criticism will never again face the danger involved in continued advocating of the categories of the old orthodox viewpoint. "3 After his first critique in I835, Bauer published four additional ones, in which he discussed the significance of the concept of myth and the essence of Strauss's attack on the Hegelian-conservative version of Christianity. He claimed that the struggle on this point was being conducted in two directions: rationalism, which sought a natural-scientific cause for every occurrence and clarified the events depicted in the Holy Scriptures, and mythological interpretation, which strove to represent sacred history as grounded in the human imagination, and thus to invalidate religious dogmas and, above all, the basic principles of Christianity.

In the light of the dynamics of development of Bauer's philosophy, the evolution towards radicalism and atheism is logical, and his acquaintance with the literature of the French Enlightenment inevitably turned him into an atheist. Only lack of knowledge of the source material can explain why certain scholars claim that Bauer suddenly became an atheist after holding orthodox views on religion for years. 24 It should be noted that German intellectuals who followed Bauer's philosophical development in the eighteen thirties and forties, were of an entirely different opinion.
