The theological conception of a man: The anthropological issue of the Njegos's work

Abstract

Njegos's poetics basically contains the Orthodox anthropology learning, by which a man was created in the image of God. The issues have been studied in the paradigms of the poem Misao ('Thought') and the philosophical-religious epic poem Luča Mikrokozma ('The Ray of the Microcosm'), using phenomenological as well as the other good methods of literature studies. The encounter between the God and a man happens in the heart of a man; and this meeting is creative, inspiring and most important as it happens at a metaphysical level. It drives a man's longing for infinity. Man's thoughts are directed towards finding and revealing the miraculous secret of the Epiphany. On this path the Njegoš's man is interested in the man's fall and exile from the Heaven. The experience acquired leading the man to God and eternity. Such a man who answered the question of God and eternity, conscious of the physical earthly transience, adapts himself into the passing of time as he knows that he is a 'being-on-the-road-to-death' so directing his thoughts towards preparing the soul for meeting with the eternity. Concerning this subject, Njegoš raises important questions of man's existential drama presenting 'a man in sin' if he deviates from the essence of his humanity, the link to the source, with the God in Christ.
