Description This paper aims to present the short story Monseñor Sabetay by the Spanish writer Rafael Cansinos Asséns published in the book The Jews in Sefarad. Episodes and Symbols. This text, intense and poetic, tells the story of the meeting between the author and the great Rabbi and Sephardic playwright of Bulgarian origin Šabetay Djaen which took place in Madrid during the period of the Second Republic. The work discusses not only the meeting between the two writers but also the process of reconciliation between the Spanish and the descendants of the Spanish Jews, expelled in 1492, from different, though partially convergent, cultural spaces and experiences. Here the Castillian Spanish space, represented by the writer Cansinos Asséns, whose Jewish origin is acknowledged, and the Bosnian space, represented by the work of the playwright Šabetay Djaen, whose literary development tool place partly in Bosnia, come together. Some characteristics of Cansino’s Jewish works are highlighted in the story and the dramatic work of Šabetay Djaen is also presented through the critical readings of his work by some contemporary intellectuals and scholars in Bosnia.
En el presente trabajo presentamos, a través de la lectura del relato de Rafael Cansinos Asséns, Monseñor Sabetay, publicado en el libro Los judíos en Sefarad. Episodios y Símbolos1, el impacto que genera sobre el autor la entrevista con el gran rabino Sr. D. Sabetay Aruk, nombre en clave del dramaturgo sefardí Šabetay Djaen, que tuvo lugar en Madrid durante el periodo de la II República. Planteamos la lectura a partir de dos espacios y experiencias de vida diferentes que, sin embargo, confluyen en muchos puntos. Es decir, por una parte, desde el espacio español a través del proceso de descubrimiento y aceptación del origen judío del escritor Cansinos Asséns y, por otra, desde el espacio bosnio por medio de la labor, también teatral, del dramaturgo de origen búlgaro, Šabetay Djaen, que desarrolló parte de su actividad en Bosnia.
Prispevek predstavlja kratko zgodbo Monseñor Sabetay španskega pisatelja Rafaela Cansinosa Assénsa, ki je bila objavljena v knjigi Los judíos en Sefarad. Episodios y Símbolos. Gre za kratko, a zgoščeno in poetično pripoved o avtorjevem srečanju z velikim sefardskim rabinom in dramatikom bolgarskega rodu Šabetayem Djaenom v Madridu v času druge republike. Prispevek pa se ne posveča le srečanju dveh piscev, temveč ponuja razmislek o procesu sprave med Španci in potomci španskih Judov, izgnanimi leta 1492, in sicer iz dveh prostorskih perspektiv in skozi dvoje izkušenj (ki pa v številnih pogledih sovpadata) – po eni strani torej z vidika Španije skozi odkrivanje in sprejemanje judovskega izvora pri pisatelju Cansinosu Assénsu, po drugi strani pa z vidika Bosne, preko (tudi gledališkega) opusa dramatika Šabetaya Djaena, ki je deloma deloval v Bosni. Prispevek predstavlja nekatere značilnosti Cansinosovih del z judovsko tematiko, pa tudi dramatiko Šabetaya Djaena, in sicer na podlagi študij o njegovem delu, ki so jih v njegovem času napisali bosanski misleci in znanstveniki.
