  Elena Franchi Destini di un paradigma: il rito iniziatico tra antropologia e scienze dell’antichità (in  Mythos  5 (2011), pp 1!5"#0) $%&'$' The pattern of “tribal initiation rites” and the related pattern of “rite of passage” and of “transition rites” were long on fashion in the classical studies: borrowed from the anthropology, they were often victims of abuse, especially in a comparative perspective, and their srcinal value was obscured by facile abuse of the comparative approach. Scholars prefer now categories like “life-crisis ritual”, “status-conferring rite”, “rituals of coming of age” and anthropopoiesis. ut these etic categories are vague and need to be followed by emic terms! and one cannot neglect that they themselves run the risk to be reified and universali"ed, as occurred to the previous, old-fashioned categories of rite of passage and initiation rites.
