In Sacrifice, René Girard interrogates the Brahmanas of Vedic India, exploring coincidences with mimetic idea which are too quite a few and outstanding to be unintentional. Even that which seems to be distinct fails to contradict mimetic concept, yet as a substitute corresponds to the minimal of phantasm with no which sacrifice turns into most unlikely.
     The Bible unearths collective violence, just like that which generates sacrifice in every single place, yet rather than making sufferers in charge, the Bible and the Gospels display the persecutors of a unmarried sufferer. rather than elaborating myths, they inform the reality totally opposite to the archaic experience. as soon as uncovered, the one sufferer mechanism can now not functionality because the version for would-be sacrificers.
     spotting that the Vedic culture additionally converges on a revelation that discredits sacrifice, mimetic thought locates inside of sacrifice itself a paradoxical strength of quiet mirrored image that leads, in the end, to the eclipse of this establishment that is violent yet however basic to the improvement of human tradition. faraway from unduly privileging the Western culture and awarding it a monopoly at the wisdom and repudiation of blood sacrifice, mimetic research acknowledges related, yet by no means actually exact, qualities within the Vedic tradition.
