Islam et ordre sacrificiel. Une hypothèse girardienne

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


Early Islam, as it emerged from the Qur'an and the fragmentary testimonies of non-Muslim nearly contemporaries, exhibited a marked return to a sacrificial order, which may be best understood as a response to what René Girard would have called a 'sacrificial' crisis in pre-Islamic Arab society. But the Qur'an also contains a harsh criticism of this sacrificial order. As a result, it produces an unstable balance, which might be understood theologically as a means to retard the explosion of violence brought about by the demystification of the archaic sacred in the biblical message.
