Keywords: Jesus; Christianity; Eucharist; sacraments; magic
Abstract
In the article the authors are trying to give sociological insight in the origin and initial meaning attributed to Eucharist as one of the first Christian sacraments. The analysis is limited to the meaning of Eucharist for the community of disciples which originated it after the execution of Jesus. In the first step the authors are dealing with the theory of René Girard, in order to reveal the dynamic of the 'generative production of scapegoat' within the community of Jesus' disciples. In the second step they are using the theory of magician's regeneration (i.e. his second birth as a magician), developed by Max Weber, in order to establish the dominant professional problem the disciples are left with after the execution of their teacher, who was extraordinary successful magician. With help of this two theories, the authors find the origin and the meaning of Eucharist in the innovation of the initiation ritual aiming at providing the new way of acquiring the professional skills of Jesus, the magician.
