6 (October 2003), 51–64. http://naomistead. pdf (accessed November 27, 2013). 13 Kant. 14 Phrenology as set out by Franz Joseph Gall in his first lectures in Vienna and later in Paris at the end of the eighteenth century concluded that character and intelligence could be read by the size of bumps on (and in) the skull. Dismissed as fraudulent by many scientists and condemned by the Catholic Church, his theories, however, found interest in Victorian England, which applied it to colonialist racial classification and pre/post–Civil War United States as a justification for slavery.

20 Following Django’s torture and his rescue from castration by the orders of Candie’s repressed but still somewhat more compassionate sister who sentences him instead to work the mines, he escapes. The term auf Wiedersehen is used once more by Django, addressing the crumpled body of Schultz he finds in a corner of Candie’s barn. The Romantic transcendence this intimates is dualistic: Django hopes for more men like Schultz, a “return” of him as a pattern for the future. Perhaps more moving is Django’s embrace of Schultz as a liberator, teacher, and father figure, and the suggestion that he has a metaphysical/spiritual hope of actually seeing Schultz again.

This progressive plea for religious tolerance, set in Jerusalem during the Third Crusade, allows the Jewish merchant Nathan to become father figure of an extended family that includes his daughter, a Christian (Templar Knight) and a Moslem (represented by the enlightened Sultan Saladin). There is some of this “society as extended family” consciousness to be found in Schultz’s bringing together of Django and his bride. As a father figure to Django and a “relative” to Broomhilda based in German-speaking kinship, the disparate trio form a family unit that would no doubt have strengthened if Schultz had not found his demise by Candie’s racism, and desire for money and control.
