G.W.F. Hegel on Christianity - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 352
Christianity/Hegel/Gadamer: Hegel's spiritualistic interpretation of Christianity, by which he determines the nature of the spirit, is not met by the objection that there is no room in it for the experience of the other and the otherness of history. The life of the spirit consists rather in recognizing oneself in otherness. The spirit, directed towards self-knowledge, sees itself divided with what is foreign and must learn to reconcile with it, recognising it as its own and homeland. By dissolving the hardness of positivity, it is reconciled with itself.
Insofar as such reconciliation is the historical work of the spirit, the historical behavior of the spirit is neither self-reflection nor the mere formal-dialectical suspension of the self-alienation that has happened to it, but an experience that experiences reality and is itself real.
