Since Ovid’s first-century Metamorphoses, transformative experiences and transformed selves have been fundamental sites of interest in European literature. At times bewildering, marvelous, and horrid, these physical transformations can invite readers to reconsider their bodies and, because of Ovid’s moral ambiguity, to reconsider their morality and thus to reconsider themselves. The powerful idea of transformation has shaped medieval and early modern thinking, a specter heralding what is yet to come, whether feared or longed for. Transformations can be violent, often involving aggressive bodily catalysts, or even death. But other transformations are rapturous, holy epiphanies. Transformations can be sly and illusory, indiscernible yet suspected.

In 1975, Mircea Eliade constates in his book Sacred and Profane: „Desacralization is significant for the whole experience of non-religious man of the modern society and re-discovery of existential extents of a religious man from archaic societies represents for him still a bigger difficulty for the same reason,“ (Eliade, 2006, p.14). He also remarks: „modern non-religious man receives his new existential situation: he recognizes only himself as a subject and an agent of history and refuses any references to transcendence. Sanctity is an obstacle par excellence for his freedom,“ (Ibid, p.134).
