Abstract. A recent result by Borchers connecting geometric modular action, modular inclusion and the spectrum condition, is applied in quantum field theory on spacetimes with a bifurcate Killing horizon (these are generalizations of black hole space-times, comprising the familiar black hole spacetime models). Within this framework we give sufficient, model-independent conditions ensuring that the temperature of thermal equilibrium quantum states is the Hawking temperature.
