Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Le pouvoir de guérir: Mythe, mystique et politique au Maroc contains a table of contents, list of illustrations, and foreword. In this book, the founding myths of healing cults and rituals illustrate conclusively the elaboration of the symbolism and dynamics of power, both in local and national contexts, in Morocco. The myth and its ritual expressions open up possibilities for socio-political renewal by the margins, or even more a renewal, taking place presently, in the form of a revolutionary millenarianism. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: healing cults; Morocco; myths; power dynamics; revolutionary millenarianism; rituals; symbolism
