“What if one kneels down and prays not so much to regain one ’ s own belief but, on the opposite, to get rid of one’ s belief, of its over-proximity, to acquire a breathing space of a minimal distance towards it?” – To believe “directly,” without the externalising mediation of a ritual­ is a heavy, oppressing, traumatic burden, which, through exerting a ritual, one has a chance of transferring it onto an Other.
