Sf. Lucifer

San Lucifero in Catedrala din Cagliari

Probabil ca nu multi au auzit de acest personaj cu un nume atat de cunoscut. Lucifer a fost o figura interesanta din perioada de inceput a crestinismului. Chiar daca a sustinut ortodoxia niceeana si pe Atanasie, a luat-o si el intre coarne la un moment dat.  De la proprii colegi. Stiti cum e cu überortodocsii astia – de orice orientare ar fi ei…

Ca si in cazul apostatilor – de toate tipurile – s-a pus problema, dupa “incheierea” tensiunilor cu Popa Arie, ce ne facem cu episcopii care au aderat la ideile genialului alexandrin? Continuam sa ii recunoastem ca atare, sau nu? Lucifer s-a opus categoric reintroducerii acestora in Biserica, iar opinia i-a fost impartasita de indeajuns de multi fani incat sa creeze o schisma importanta in cadrul Bisericii. Acestia se numeau Luciferieni.

Nu vreau sa intru in prea multe detalii. Ceea ce ramane interesant este ca nu am mai gasit, dupa acest Lucifer, nici un alt caz in care acest nume sa fie folosit in sens…politically correct :D

Este sarbatorit la 20 mai.

Raúl Ruiz – The Suspended Vocation [1978]

The Suspended Vocation [1978] aduce in discutie niste chestiuni a naibii de plictisitoare, aka existentiale:

Ostensibly a faithful adaptation of Pierre Klossowski’s autobiographical novel about the struggle between rival doctrinal factions with the Catholic Church, The Suspended Vocation illustrates Ruiz’s belief that institutions, in order to survive, must treat all forms of dissidence as treason. In 1942, a film entitled The Suspended Vocation was begun by a group of monks; running out of money, they abandoned the project. Twenty years later, a religious order hires a professional director to again take up this film project; the director, having examined the earlier footage, concludes that it is unusable. He decides to use professional actors, at which point the church authorities, fearful of the escalating costs, withdraw their support. Finally, in 1971, a third attempt is made to rework all the material into a coherent form.

Un film absolut recomandat tuturor celor carora le place sa incetoseze diferentele dintre responsabilitate si evadare (am numit-o responsabilitatea evadarii).
