Abstrakt(y)
The meditation focuses on the biblical concept of quietude, as described in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. It presents quotations from various editions of the Bible and offers basic etymological and semantic context which makes the content of the idea more accessible. Besides that the work stresses the revolutionary character of Christianity with respect to Judaism, Greek rationalism and Roman etatism: those at the social periphery mean hope for its future. The core of the work is an attempt to analyze the inner structure of the phenomenon of quietness with the following constants: seeming passivity, taste and decency. The content of the constants is distinguished from the ordinary language content by means of a confrontation with historical-philosophical conceptions.
