Paper presents an analysis and interpretation of the chosen problems and thematic motives from the examined poem. Paper emphasises the problems - ontology of the dialog established within infra- and extratextual author- and readership, discourse with biblical tradition and prefiguration ° f religious ethos, mode of characterisation of the clue lexemes, and function of the narrative and lexical leaving unsaid as a means of transmitting the most important content. Within the scope ° f the motives - paper undertakes topic analysis of the places of events, figurative shapes of main heroes, and religious sacrifice. References to the chosen texts by John Paul II and to the papers devoted as far to Roman triptych establish a comparative context for presented considerations.
