The Antichrist is one of the last works of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche written in 1888 but published in 1895. Nietzsche denounces Christianity as the poisoner of Western culture.

These criticisms focus on what he considered the slavish morality of Christianity and its insistence on guilt, self-denial and piety. For Nietzsche, this morality has undermined the vitality of the Western world by fostering an unworldly, life-denying attitude.

Using irony, Nietzsche suggests that Jesus himself was an embodiment of the resentful slave morality. The work contains some of his most critical writings against women whom he accuses of leading men astray with their "cunning seduction."

Nietzsche also declares that he is proud to be a Jew and claims that they are the ones who have best preserved a sense of reality, more than any other nation.

Let us look each other in the face. We are Hyperboreans-we know well enough how remote our place is. “Neither by land nor by water will you find the road to the Hyperboreans”: even Pindar, in his day, knew hat much about us.
