This chapter looks at the ways the that fraught relationships between Christianity and Tragedy are re-worked within the experiments of modernist performance. Revising Nietzsche's binary of 'Dionysus versus the Crucified', the chapter examines the ways the savage God Dionysus fuses with the Crucified in sometimes holy, sometimes blasphemous renditions in the work of T. S Eliot, W. B. Yeats, Antonin Artaud and Bertolt Brecht.
