SOLIS ZEPEDA, María Luisa  and  FONTANILLE, Jacques. Ritual quiet. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2012, n.27, pp.15-34. ISSN 2594-0619.

In the article, the general traits of the ritual are dealt with following the anthropological works of Victor Turner and Ingrid Geist. Some reformulations from the viewpoint of semiotics are posed, above all, focusing interest on the theme of tense. The authors propose considering three tenses that interact: that of existence, that of experience and a singular tense that conjugates the two previously mentioned: a tempo constituted by repetition, slowness and speed. This would be the tense of the ritual. To sustain this proposal, a ritual of Catholic Holy Week and that of penitence of the flagellants of San Vicente de la Sonsierra (township of La Rioja, Spain), which is a ritual representative of the questions dealt with, are analyzed.
