The article covers the question of system and dynamic interpretation of rituals in the period of transition from primitive society to civilization. The author discloses the ritual role as a protoform (a code) in the process of a new social organization emerging (the early civilization). The ritual symbol is considered as a ritual code. The author states that the given process is a relatively independent phenomenon, but not an intermediate one. It is mentioned that the phenomenon is represented as a dynamic system with immanent and "complicated" laws of functioning.
