The Bacchae by Euripides can be read as a heuristic laboratory for the transfer between the Greek »tragic« and the Christian »metatragic«, since Euripides distances himself from the unstilled myth of the tragic which consits of Dionysian versus Apollinian duality. What is being sought is a new metatragic hermeneutics, which can only be found in the Chalce-donian relationship between »undivided and unmixed representation«, since it is only in a Christologically substantiated statement the wish is actually (and not only seemingly) full-filed that »Dionysos speaks the language of Apollo, and Apollo, finally, the language of Dionysos« (Nietzsche). This new kind of metatragic hermeneutics, whose substructures are denoted as »mysterium« and »metaphor«, is attained by the poetic reinterpretation of the death of »Pentheus«, who now becomes a type of Christus Patiens.
