The net result is the finest and most thorough work in the English language about Wagner's christian texts such as "Parsifal:the finding of Christ through art" by Albert Ross Parsons and David Irvine's "Parsifal and Wagner's christianity" can now be seen as supportive works to this far more thorough and exhaustive work of Bell's.5/5(2).

But for a theologian interested in Wagner this book can be an eye-opener. As the German Wagnerian scholar Ulrike Kienzle has commented quite correctly, “Wagner’s turn to Christian mythology, upon which the imagery and spiritual contents of Parsifal rest, is idiosyncratic and contradicts Christian dogma in many ways.” And yet, even conceding that this is the case, Wagner’s final work still represents a crucial.

The threads woven into Parsifal were all interwoven with the stuff of Wagner's Christianity. The action of Parsifal takes place against the background of Christian beliefs. Parsifal takes it for granted that these beliefs are true and accepted, as much in.

The Grail is a symbol of purity in a world of lust and power, but although Parsifal is the culmination of Wagner's life-long obsession with the religious frame of mind, the redemption sought by his characters is far from the Christian archetype.
