Chapter Summary

To talk about mystery, people must theoretically explicit presence of the word (a presence that also continues to be certified). In the absence of the word itself, the presence of mystics or muesis combined with Telete or orgia, refers to a concept both "semi-empirical and operational". Anne-Françoise Jaccottet has recently shown, using examples from the Dionysian record, that the mystics term tends to spread like a fad in the polytheists circles in imperial times. Nicole Belayche reveals that it is the same for mysteria. Mysterion will have to wait to see Christianity to multiply its certificates. In the Aristotle's Poetics, the possibility of a homeopathic use of emotions represented, played, dramatized. According to Aristotle, the mysteries are the most respected Telete. The original text of the chapter is in French.
