Abstract

 

Imagined (im)mortality in the artifacts of the syncretic Constantinian era (based on the novel Zlatno doba by Silvana Hadži-Đokić)

An example of a Serbian contemporary novel dedicated to the topic of death is Zlatno doba by Silvana Hadži-Đokić. Although the book can be considered solely as based on Christian metaphysics and faith in wonders, it also contains critically oriented observations, which are rooted in a deep knowledge and understanding of history, philosophy and art of late antiquity and early Christianity. As a result, not all of its claims and interpretations are in line with the Church’s religious beliefs. The writer presents a complex picture of Emperor Constantine and his mother, Empress Helena, the protagonist, whose figure, through the concept of mortal life, connects temporarily distant romanesque plans and ambiences. The story consists of historical passages, written from different points of view, taking into account contradictory facts and assumptions concerning the controversial life of Constantine, as well as his intellectual and material heritage.

 

 

(Be)smrtnost zamišljena u artefaktima sinkretske Konstantinove ere (na osnovi romana Zlatno doba Silvane Hadži-Đokić)

Jedan od primera srpskog savremenog romana posvećenog temi smrti jeste Zlatno doba Silvane Hadži-Đokić. Mada možemo knjigu Hadži Đokić smatrati pre svega prozom čija je okosnica hrišćanska metafizika i vera u čudesa, u njenim mozaičnim tokovima nalaze se i kritički usmerena zapažanja, koja imaju izvore u poznavanju istorije, filozofije i umetnosti kasne antike i ranog hrišćanstva. Dakle, nisu sve tvrdnje i interpretacije u skladu sa crkvenom veronaukom. Spisateljica predstavlja složenu sliku cara Konstantina i njegove majke, carice Jelene, protagonistkinje, čiji lik, putem koncepcije posmrtnog žitija, povezuje vremenski udaljene romaneskne planove i ambijente. Fabularno tkivo čine istorijski odlomci, pisani sa različitih tačaka gledišta, uzimajući u obrzir mnoštvo suprostavljenih činjenica te pretpostavki vezanih za kontroverzan život Konstantina, a takođe njegovo intelektualno i materijalno nasleđe.
