Summary : After a historical overview on the sliding of the concept of perfection to the uncertain notion of excellence, this study examines successively the competing models of excellence (angelic, sporting, hagiographic, university, economic paradigms), the formation of a bodily elite, current manifestations of overarching or the pursuit of always bettering oneself, and their impact on the eidetic of religious life.
