Abstract

I—THE JURIDICAL RELIGIOUS SUPERIMPOSITION of crime and purity entails a new relationship to the truth. In fact:
  • α—impurity is now a quality of the individual constituted by the crime;

  • β—this impurity is the source of dangerous contacts which spread throughout the space of the city;

  • γ—it is therefore important know if the crime has been committed and by whom.
