Abstract: This paper presents the narrative of renewal of children’s religious imagery in Czesław Miłosz’s “The Issa Valley”. The main hero of the novel Tomas is discovering valley as loci of syncretic religious beliefs. There are being synthesized a pagan imagination, animism, monism, the cult objects of nature, magic and Christian theology. The paper shows that the configuration of the heroes of the novel impersonates the potency of the religious imagination. These points of view already present possible parallels with Blake’s “Urthona”, Michalina Surkontowa’s “Tharmas”, Bronislawa Dilbinowa’s “Luvah”, and Baltazar’s “Urizen”.
