Abstract: The article presents selected aspects of John D. Caputo’s theology of the event as an example of a certain “unsubstantiality”, i.e. decline of postsecularism and—in a broader sense— postmodernism. The author pays particular attention to the way in which Caputo presents the nature of the paradox as a manifestation of, on the one hand, the Deleuzian event, and, on the other hand, the Kingdom of God. Moreover, the author comments upon different interpretations of the biblical world seen as the kingdom of paradox, removed from each other in time and the form of the argument, in order to refute the claim that the particular weakness of Caputo’s theory is nothing else but a daring rejection of classical theology. Thus, she alludes frequently to Gilbert K. Chesterton and Paul Ricoeur, and follows the trail of references to the substance which gives abstractions concrete form. Chesterton referred to the biblical world as glass-like, “made of glass”, while Ricoeur, pondering on the nature of God’s existence in relation to the man, used the metaphor of a mountain pass, full of peaks and chasms, akin to the image of pulsing flames. Caputo, however, situates the same mystery at the very beginning and at the very end of his argument—the faint and phantasmal quasi-meaning, which cannot penetrate the language to enter the actual reality—the event.
