  Article:   THE AVATARS OF A HERMENEUTICAL TRANSLATION R. OTTO - THE NUMINOUS.

Authors:  SILVIA IRIMIEA.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  The paper seeks to reveal the complex and challenging experience of a hermeneutical text-translation by looking closer at The Numinous (2005), a masterpiece of mysticism composed by the prominent philosopher, theologian and historian of religion Rudolf OTTO. The paper highlights the technical prerequisites and the sources of fascination of the text shedding more light on the translational levels (hermeneutic and linguistic) and its avatars. It also suggests some ways of overcoming the areas of difficulty that translators may encounter when they engage in the devouring process of translating the text.

Key words: hermeneutic, sacred, the numinous, features of the text, lexical level.
