He was both sacrificer and sacrificed, the performer of the rite and the one transfigured through it to become divinized. Nietzsche requested “a dressing gown for radical redemption”; such a very personal item of clothing, which may be linked to his bodily and ontological functions, became the ambiguous garb of king, priest, and victim.
