THE GNOSTIC-DUALISTIC DIMENSION AND ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH
THE ABSOLUTE (UNIO OPPOSITORIUM) IN EMINESCU’S POETRY
(Abstract)

A number of writers and literary critics (Lucian Blaga, Nicolae Balotă, Ioan Petru Culianu, Alain Guillermou, Rosa Del Conte, Lucia Cifor, Carmen Negulei, Rodica Marian, Nicoleta Popa Blanariu) have written about the impact that gnostic philosophy/ eligion and old dualist Romanian beliefs had on Eminescu’s work. My own earlier work on the subject focused on indicating the semantic and exegetic consequences of the orthodox form of gnosis – which Lucian Blaga called the stylisticsophianic dimension – in the complete text of Luceafărului. The most obvious consequence of this textual analysis is the process of „luceferire” of Cătălin and Cătălina, on whom transcendence descends. The present article is mainly focused on the ambivalence Luceafărul-Hyperion, on Hyperion’s evolution towards the revelation of his condition as of the same essence with that of the increated divinity.
