Description du Livre

The scape-goat, or sufferer, who is martyred that many may escape--or in other words,
the unfortunate minority--is a natural result of sacrifice. There is a curious trace of it in
Hungarian Gypsy Shamanism. On Easter Monday they make a wooden box or receptacle
which is called the bìcáben, pronounced like the English gypsy word bitchapen and
meaning the same, that is--a sending, a thing sent or gift. In this, at the bottom, are two
sticks across, "as in a cradle," and on these are laid herbs and other fetish stuff which
every one touches with the finger; then the whole is enveloped in a winding of white and
red wool, and carried by the oldest person of the tribe from tent to tent; after which it is
borne to the next running stream and left there, after every one has spat upon it. By doing
this they think that all the diseases and disorders which would have befallen them during
the coming year are conjured into the box. But woe to him who shall find the box and
open it, instead of throwing it at once into the stream! All the diseases exorcised by the
gypsy band will fall upon him and his in full measure
