Cyril of Alexandria was a prolific biblical commentator who underscored the meaning and relevance of the Old Testament for Christian theology by employing a typological method of interpretation. His exegetical concern was to demonstrate that everything associated with the old covenant- people, events, commandments, institutions-were types and shadows foretelling the ‘mystery of Christ’. The key to understanding the types of the Old Testament is to recognize their soteriological fulfillment in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Throughout his exegetical writings, Cyril draws particular attention to the Jewish rite of circumcision, showing how the physical operation signifies the saving work of Christ through the Spirit. Cyril does not interpret circumcision in a monolithic sense, but derives multiple soteriological meanings from it. Insofar as circumcision represents a variety of saving realities for Cyril, it helps us understand his complex, multi-faceted doctrine of salvation.

A surgery of ritual circumcision in healthy young boys is usually a safe procedure. However, an outbreak of severe sepsis a few hours after surgery in patients who underwent this minor procedure is described and analyzed in this report. We describe the clinical course and discuss the causes of the sepsis and septic shock. Contamination of propofol, the intravenous anesthetic agent, was suspected as a probable cause. However, the most important question that had appeared from this case is the prognostic outcome regarding the delayed treatment of severe sepsis

haemophilia before her UK-born child was diagnosed following a religious circumcision aged two weeks, she said “No idea, I don’t have any clue about it at all”.

Cet article examine les constructions de sens (frames) autour de l’excision et de la chirurgie esthétique génitale, par l’exemple de la nymphoplastie. L’analyse porte sur des entretiens menés auprès d’experts ayant une connaissance approfondie des pratiques de modification génitale en Suisse. Les résultats montrent que l’excision et la nymphoplastie sont placées dans un rapport de « miroir inversé », où la nymphoplastie est décrite par des caractéristiques positives alors que l’excision représente son miroir négatif. Par conséquent, cet article argumente que le débat sur les « mutilations génitales féminines » en Suisse reproduit l’allégorie du « Nous versus les Autres », conformément à la rhétorique du nationalisme sexuel.
