Le conte sacrifie l'originalité diégétique au revenue de l. a. transmission d'un récit traditionnel, imitant ainsi l. a. posture du croyant vis-à-vis du message hagiographique qu'il contribue à mettre en movement. Incorporer le texte référentiel (ou une parole sacrée), c'est s'abandonner à l'envahissement d'une puissance dévastatrice qui modifie profondément les contours de l'espace hospitalier.
