If one accepts that the mutation must lead to one or more new elements, he/she must still assess the degree of novelty  implied by the mutation. Nicole Belayche shows that "Ritual inflation, media focus", characterizes the performance anthemic "demanded and caused organizational changes that coincide with the contemporary reorganization of social  hierarchies and infrastructures". The agreed transitional period between classical and Hellenistic Greece is a good example of the problems that arise when trying to define the scope of what is considered a "novelty". The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Christianity; Hellenistic Greece; Jewish conception of religion; religious changes; Roman Empire
