The Cross of Christ NOTES BIBLIOGRAPHY INDEX DISPOSSESSED LIFE ........................................ INTRODUCTION TO BRETON’S PAUL WARD BLANTON [It] beautifully expresses the wonder… when everything was still bathed in the light of an unsupervised [insurveillé] horizon. —Stanislas Breton, A Radical Philosophy of Saint Paul For it is not a question of annihilating what has been made and inscribed in the density of a past, but of establishing in us a more difficult freedom that does not let itself be fascinated with the traces of its passage.

Thus, it would be ridiculous to try to quantify and measure the beauty of one work of art against another, as such an enterprise could only operate successfully were there to be a uniform table of comparable beauties. If, however, the work of art appears as that which has a kind of unknown beauty that nevertheless demands respect, then things are otherwise. Breton’s standard reading here is spiced throughout with intriguing (and rhetorically shrewd, given the audience) jabs at the museum industry by comparing it to the institutionalization and “sainting” operations of Catholicism.

He could have added “Let anyone who has ears to hear [entendre]” question his or her understanding [entendement]. The dispossessing madness of love within Paulinist divinity—that which, Breton tells us, names the cessation of a sort of God—finds an answer to its own echo in the Paulinist believer who measures the neutrally unhinged and therefore unmeasurable expression of God in the only way possible: intensive, self-forgetful enthusiasm. If there is a freedom of a decidedly Pauline thought of the cross, a freedom in the impossible naming of the execution of a messiah as a revelation of the strength of the divine, it is in the explosion of this space of a void, the dispossessed, unmeasured, or unjustified nature of which does not temper its forceful emergence.
