Karl Rosenkranz on the life of Hegel

This is a summary of my reading of the preface and first eleven chapters of the first of the three parts of Karl Rosenkranz's Life of Hegel (1844), the first biography of the German philosopher Hegel. Rosenkranz was a Calvinist and Professor in Königsberg in East Prussia who had access to Hegel's papers through his family.
