Even if Cassirer considers that the religion is the natural prosecution of the myth, we must deal the so-called religions of the book (Judaism, Christianity, Islamism) in various way.
Cassirer considers that the religion of Zoroaster exactly puts into effect the passage between system of the taboo and the purifications (typical of the mythical religions) to the system of the guaranteed moral law from a God only Ahura Mazda.p.189.
It is the choice of the two ways the good and the evil.
We could say that the system of the taboo and the purification is not equivalent to the choice between the good and the evil. The purification is above all physical (to wash the body)
The taboo is instead spiritual physicist and (contamination with the dead men, moral guilt) therefore he is not evitabile
It expresses the concept of Noli me tangere but he is not easy purificabile.
The taboo forms a system of prohibition held from the fear. The system of the moral prohibition is held by the free choice
Cassirer considers that the conception of Zoroaster is also that of the Judaism, the Christianity and the Islamism
Cassirer does not consider that other characters are important as the idea of Bergson who are two religions: statics and other dynamics and not even that the religion is an evolution of the magic
Cassirer however avoids to say that the religion is most important for the culture. From Augustin to Kant (ontologico argument of Anselmo) philosophy and religion are in intimate contact.
For Carl Schmitt every western political concept is a laicized religious concept. For Walter Benjamin the Messiah's wait can be satisfied at any moment (also from the bolscevica revolution)
