This chapter offers an interpretation of Gottfried Wilhelm Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit as a history of death, and as a history of death's transformation, discussing Hegel's view that death can not only have history, it must have a history. It explains that the final stages in spirit's mastery over death are found in the revealed religion and absolute knowing sections of the Phenomenology of Spirit.

Keywords:   Phenomenology of Spirit, history of death, Gottfried Wilhelm Hegel, spirit, revealed religion, absolute knowing
