In the history of religions penitence is a general and spontaneous reaction of individual and community at different disasters, as well as an ordinary form of religious practice at appointed times. The Holy Scripture often speaks about it and warns that at penitence the inner attitude of conversion is more important than a mere rite. This attitude comprises awareness of having acted wrongly, therefore it is necessary to return to the right way (hebr. šub, greek metanoia). This recognition and decision express itself in the rites that comprise penitential texts, gests or actions, and offerings. The aim of the project is the literary criticism of the penitential prayers and offering in the Old Testament and chosen texts in the New Testament as well as in the today liturgy, that is through the New Testament connected with the Old testamentary liturgy.
