Annotation:  The article notes that the concept of security moves from the localization of kinship in antiquity to per-sonal and collective in the Middle Ages. The beginning in the safety practices were the mechanisms of sacrifice and exile, which corresponded to the idea of the danger of the sacred. A positive alternative to them were the practices of creating themselves, which created tension between the basic objects of securi-ty: man and policy. The Middle Ages solves this tension by abolishing archaic practices and creates a new tension. It lies in the contradictions of theodicy; lack of guarantees of salvation; between shepherding as security practitioners and possible negative alternatives
