Strauss's book, The Life of Jesus, published inGermany in 1835, established the discipline of biblical criticism and decisively articulated the question of the role of faith in a secular age. The book divided the Christian Hegelians into right" and "left" factions depending on their belief in the necessity of affirming the New Testament's historical truth to espouse the Christian faith. The book helped in this way to shape the left-wing Hegelism that was to develop into Marxism."
