Genèse 8, 21 et le «parfum d'apaisement»

Bernard Gosse
The post-priestly fragments of the flood narrative draw a parallel between the history of mankind and the history of Israel. Although, after having caused a first disaster (flood = fall of the first Temple), the evil designs of the human heart are not erased, nevertheless, the «appeasing fragrance» of the sacrifice (Noah's sacrifice = sacrificial ritual of the second Temple) will safeguard humanity from a new catastrophe.
