Abstract :
This article studies the psychological subject of the relation between logos/nous and the passions which was considered of central importance in antiquity and was linked with a tradition that ascribed reason to men and passion to women. The analysis of these stereotypes is here made by a study of the three different ancient traditions. After an examination of an example coming from pagan tradition (Euripides' Medea) the author goes on to a Jewish one as found in 4 Mac and in other works up to and including those of Philo of Alexandria. Finally, St. Paul's attitude is presented as clearly distinct from the three earlier models.
