MF, Confessions of the Flesh

“Compared with Greek & Roman religions, Christianity imposes on its believers an obligation to ‘tell the truth’ about themselves that is infinitely more imperious in its form & more demanding in its content. It is through these new rules of ‘veridiction’ that one must try to understand what is said in Christianity about the flesh.”

– Michel Foucault, Confessions of the Flesh, 1984
