Abstract The concept of kenosis can be found in almost all over the ancient Christian literature, and especially the canonical gospels. This article explores this theme in a passage of the Gospel of John (chapter 20), in order to show how the motif of kenosis is actualized through the characters of Mary of Magdala and Christ. More generally, it starts from this passage in order to think about the notion of mimèsis and of representation of reality. These reflections are based on Aristotle’s Poetics, which is the earliest surviving work on literary theory, especially on the plot. My purpose is to perceive how this motif of kenosis is put in writing in ancient Christianity and what specific literary ways of expressing it are used in the gospels, form and content being closely related.
