the work of some malicious
demiurge-led me from our school
textbook on Church history tdt my
later readings in theology and the
mistory of religious doctrines, and
ultimately, years later, to my course
on Manichaeism.
Manichaean dualism was a radical
attempt to separate good and evil,
thoroughly enough that the Good God,
lying behind the cosmos, could be freed
from the stigma of having created evil.
It posited that the creation of the world
was due to an inferior demigod.
Just as modern science has
established the laws of biological
determinism, so the ancients were for-
ced to contend with astrological deter-
minism.
A Manichaean answer to either
situation is to understand the cosmos as
a prison-house in which the soul, whose
origin is divine, is captive.
Unlike E.M. Cioran, who sought bit-
terly to revive a gnostic paganism in his
essays The New Gods (1969), Milosz is
tempered by a natural even-
mindedness, and by his faithfulness to
Una Sancta Catholica Ecclesia. It is
not a revivified gnosticism that he
searches for, but a revivified Church.
He follows none of his intellectual in-
fluences to their extreme.
The Manichaean element must be
related to another theme which appears
in much of Milosz's writing, that of
Exile.

In ancient dualism, such as that of
Marcion, the soul is seen as an exile
from its original, divine home, thrown
into this enclosed cell of the world, what
Marcion called "haec cellula
creatoris."
Milosz traces this idea through
Lurianic cabalism, and in far-reaching
ways, exile becomes the primary
characteristic of our age. Exile,
before it became a phenomenon of
the age, was once relatively rare;
only later did it grow to the dimen-
sions of a universal condition.
Mass exile has been continuous since
the Second World War. Milosz hiself, as
an exile in America, finds that his con-
dition, the condition of millions, is
mirrored in our century and in our
metaphysical condition.
The theme of exile is of course basic
to both Jewish and Christian experien-
ce. In medieval Christianity, the im-
pulse to find solitude, the readiness to
admire the stylite and the nun who
chose an extreme of isolation, derived
from the ideals of the Desert Fathers,
from a concept that the Church was a
pilgrimage, from this world to the next,
of an exiled humanity.
This is why it does not seem strange
to me that, in an era when science does
not shy away from creating the mon-
strum horrendum, or from traducing
the common bonds of civilization, that
the theme of exile is raised again, and
science is called to account. It may be
that the older tradition still has vitality.
