The idea of confession and forgiveness early appeared in primitive religion.  Then followed all the meaningless schemes of ritualistic purification.  Renunciation came as the next step in religious evolution, penance being the negative form of this ofttimes foolish ritual.  But all this taught the savage self-control, and that was a worth-while advancement in social evolution.
