Starting as a scientific presentation of the phenomenon of cloning, in which etymology, the definitions and some already classical examples are emphasized, this paper actually focuses on a less discussed perspective in nowadays debates on cloning. Thus, the paper aims at showing which are (if any) the mythical-religious structures of cloning, certainly without ignoring the social consequences, the advantages and disadvantages and the juridical effects of cloning. Discussing Mircea EliadeĆ­s novella Les trois graces, the purpose of explaining the subtle reactivation of ancient mythical-religious phantasms by the means of a contemporary scientific experiment such as cloning is reached.
