THE PRIEST IN CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE (30.05.2017)

2:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. | Free entry
Exhibition Hall (Building BUJPII - Floor 2)

Contemporary literature shows that the figure of the priest, even with all the changing perceptions, continues to arouse curiosity, debate and thought. As a character, it is perhaps less consensual than in other times and certainly less iconic within the social and power dynamics. However, the fact that his representation has not completely escaped the mutations and dilemmas of modernity allows us to deconstruct the reduction of the figure of the priest to a habitus, immune to time or history, illuminating its existence under new angles. Literature gives us to listen to a figure traditionally associated with discursive production, but we rarely hear in the discourse itself.
