Abstract:The conference Eschatology and secularization in post-modernist clothes pleads for the extension of the agreement between secularization and postmodernism, through Entzauberung der Welt. This phenomenon is to be found in the clear part of the equation of the new religious, artistic and political movements from the 60s and 70s, received as intellectual seismic waves that affected, indirectly and/or partially, the Romanian cultural blockade from the 80s.The case proposed through this study could be linked to the Nouveau Movements Religieux philosophy, this deviation from the socialist canon being related to the modernity of some spiritual experiences, placed in the movements of spiritual revival from the traditional churches (see the case of the post-modernist monk Savatie Bastovoi) and of literary reclamation through the literature created and debated in the students' literary circles, Junimea, Cenaclul de Luni.The agreement between secularization, post-modernism, etc, in this Romanian case of the 80s, remains ambiguous enough and can be applied, strategically, in order to underline the impact/shock to the new of both the religious and literary phenomenon in a closed society (see the reviews of an unusual novel Cartea milionarului).As a specific form of literary secularization, the Romanian post-modernism, ever since the 80s movement, is still predisposed to the poor assumption, ludicironical of the inter-textuality, leading simultaneously, from a citation/taming of the world’s inter-text and as well of literature’s ones: (see Femeia în roşu) to a un- and (re)contextualization solemn-infinite and severe (see Cartea milionarului).In fact, those two meta-fictions follow on proper narrative account, two aspects of the eschatological vision – one of the panoramic apocalypses – the vision of some extraordinary wonders placed in a near future or even „before the end of the time”, like in the post-modern novel Cartea milionarului and another of the „inner apocalypses” – which ideally begins in the mind of the hidden reader in the narrative part; as soon as he had finished the reading – typical for the post-modern novel Femeia în roşu.
