Everydayness and Religiousness at the Intersection of Epochs and Cultures: Wierszalin. Reportaż o końcu świata (Wierszalin. A Report on the End of the World) by Włodzimierz Pawluczuk and Piotr Tomaszuk

Żaneta Nalewajk (University of Warsaw)

The article discusses the production of Wierszalin. Reportaż o końcu świata (Wierszalin. A Report on the End of the World) by Włodzimierz Pawluczuk, an anthropologist and religious studies scholar, which was prepared by Piotr Tomaszuk in the theatre Wierszalin. The analysed text depicts events that took place during World War I and in the 1920s and 1930s near the town of Białystok (the rise of specifi c chiliastic communities). The article’s particular focus is a paradoxical situation when the need to bless the acts of everyday life, poignantly experienced due to the awareness of the approaching “end of the days”, easily borders on fraud and the need to infl uence the fate of the community, in a word, with the striving for power.
