Chapter Summary

Many texts of the Old Testament, and even of New Testament, testify the enduring memory of life in the desert, with an ambivalent nostalgia where the attraction fights with dread. Among the characters of the geography and desertic geology, as they condition the nomadic life, it is that the typical and symbolic expression had grown and diversified during its semantic development. Quantity of customs, often very opposite, reveal, at analysis, of more or less latent survivals of vague heap of faiths, reasonings, invention and of superstition. The traces are not lacking in the Bible, especially in the Old Testament, of archaic reflections. The beginnings of a primitive actually theological thought can hardly be more porous through the successive "theologisetions" of biblical traditions. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: archaic survivals; biblical traditions; faiths; Old Testament; theological thought; typical and symbolic expression
