Abstract

This paper offers a historical redescription of the genealogy of office presented in Giorgio Agamben’s Opus Dei: An archaeology of duty. Agamben’s treatment of the Christian liturgy as the source of the modern concept of office is described as a Heideggerian allegory grounded in a metaphysical history of being.
