20 Description The sheet reminds of a page of an original manuscript, where text is followed by drawing. The drawing represent a naked child strethed on an animal's back, approached from the right and behind by a group of personnages, most of them of monstrous appearance. The two figures closest to the child are in long white clothes, a bird stand on the head of one of them. The soil is composed of pen strokes mixed with elements of a crossed-out written text. Pointing lines connect the scene with the unclear written lines in the upper part of the sheet. Some more big inscriptions over the figures seem to tend to explane the scene, but in fact they cannot be read eiher.

36 Summary and Remarks
Previously was published under the wrong title "The Fall of Belzebub". The title "Ritual" was given by the artist to a series of drawings representing circumcision in the process of the documentation. The position of the child is very similar to one in the old engravings representing circumcision. The closest parallel is "Ceremonie de la circoncision des Juifs", engraved by Aveline, 1730 (L.K.K.).
