Dynamite Easter, 1864 CE

You will never get the crowd to cry Hosanna until you ride into town on an ass.
- Friedrich Nietzsche, Assorted Opinions and Maxims.
Friedrich Nietzsche in 1864 CE
142 years ago Friedrich Nietzsche was 20 years old and at crossroads with his life regarding religion. He had been religious but his faith had started slowly but steadily to crumble. And then, he forcefully decided to not take part in Easter’s holy communion. It could be said to be a day of a personal death and resurrection, a start of a new path for Fritz. A path that eventually resulted in his revolutionary philosophy.
