[Inserted in Margin: Christianity] "If we accept Hegel's formula of evolution-thesis, antithesis, synthesis- we might say that the Greek and Roman religions represent the thesis (social-ethical religions), the Mysteries the [Crossed Out: MS: illegible] antithesis (individualistic- mystic), while Judaism presented both thesis and antithesis, but laboured [labored] in vain to discover the synthesis. It was Christianity that found the synthesis. Angus, [Underlined: The Mystery Religion And Christianity], p[age] 259.
