Luminita Pop, The religious experience. Between bible psalmists and those from modern romanian literature
Religious experience is the link between the biblical psalmists and Arghezi or Voiculescu as creators of religious poems; they all had feelings of happiness, disappointment, loneliness, comprised in what religion psychologists call the night of the mystics. Spanish exegete Antonio Avila believes that sacred experience gives meaning to all existence, even if the feeling of rejection by the deity appears very often, these poets never cease to seek for Transcendence. So they are spiritually enriched by this search for ultimate and radical meaning of life.
