In this sense, "confinement" conceals both a metaphysics of government and a politics of reli-gion; it is situated, as an effort of tyrannical synthesis, in the vast space separating the garden of God and the cities which men, driven from paradise, have built with their own hands. The house of confinement in the classical age constitutes the densest symbol of that "police" which con-ceived of itself as the civil equivalent of religion for the edification of a perfect city. Confinement was an institutional creation peculiar to the seventeenth century.

It was in these places of doomed and despised idleness, in this space invented by a society which had derived an eth-ical transcendence from the law of work, that madness would appear and soon expand until it had annexed them. A day was to come when it could possess these sterile reaches of idleness by a sort of very old and very dim right of inheritance. The nineteenth century would consent, would even insist that to the mad and to them alone be transferred these lands on which, a hundred and fifty years before, men had sought to pen the poor, the vagabond, the unemployed.

Dicebant quoniam in furorem versus est. "10 Coming into this world, Christ agreed to take upon himself all the signs of the human condition and the very stigmata of fallen nature; from poverty to (80) death, he followed the long road of the Passion, which was also the road of the passions, of wisdom forgotten, and of madness.
