The subject of the present paper is relevant since the attempts proposed for analysis refer to a particular model of Redundancy whose functionality is challenged, repudiated in the ecclesial field by strict canonico-tipical provisions. Yet, without looking at the content of teaching faith, only by following the merits of the semiotic analysis, a possible example can be made up to reveal with a certain degree of truth an important feature which, until the present, was not analysed in a semiotic contest: RELATIVE REDUNDANCY OF THE BIBLE TEXT. In the noological frames the translation from the monologue to the dialogue (Man-GOD) takes place, and the liturgical religious texts acquire a fundamental trait, in order from the Creation, namely their RELATIVE REDUNDANCY. In the overwhelming majority of the religious texts (inherent in the Pauline Epistles, in the prayers of thanksgiving, in the Davidic Psalms, or in the royal Messianic Psalms) one can identify a so-called positive politeness strategy (captatio benevolentiæ) present as a mark in the encomistic formulations, which generally aim to maintain open the communicative relationship with God. A series of euchological formations that can be placed under the sign of redundancy: for example, the early prayers of the liturgical acts: Glory, Prayer, Heavenly King, Glory who succumbs to the Typical Rules of the Day. The Psalms may be mentioned, the Book of Psalms being rich in prayers of praise, request, thanksgiving and repentance, with similar texts.
