Recuperarea textului sacru în literatura laică contemporană. Romanul Nebunul al lui Savatie Baștovoi

Publication: Text şi discurs religios, II, Section Literatura și sacrul, p. 423-428
Publisher:Editura Universităţii „Alexandru Ioan Cuza”
Abstract:In today’s world, subject to Globalization, Secularization, Rationalism, Technologism, to the exclusion of traditional values or to Neo-gnosticism, could there possibly exist examples of sacred text recovery, especially the Christian one? The answer would require a rhetoric question: of course, but it may not serve to anybody. Savatie Baştovoi, the one who travels the route from Atheism to Christianity, both in his personal and artistic life, proposes a unique solution. Starting with the life of Saint Simeon the Crazy about Christ, also known by the name of Edessa and with one of his friends, John the Monk, Savatie Baştovoi writes the novel The Madman, with double significance: updating the religious text in a laic Romanian formula, on the one hand and subjecting meaning of understanding (maybe the criticism of Modernity too) to an equivoque – normality seen as madness and/ or abnormality/ madness seen as normality, on the other hand.
