Abstract: In this study I analyze religious ideas and imagery in the works of two prominent postmodern Lithuanian writers, Saulius Tomas Kondrotas and Kornelijus Platelis. both writers oppose traditional agrarian ethics, religion, and mythology to soviet totalitarian modernity. at the same time they use religious images in order to represent its disintegration: Kondrotas emphasizes the inevitability of sin and perdition in the modern world; while Platelis stresses the creeping entrenchment of one-sided, dogmatic rationality. elucidating types of usage of religious material (in the case of Kondrotas it is a biblical-christian paradigm, reminiscent of calvinist theology; in the case of Platelis it is a predilection for Lithuanian paganism and ancient Gnosticism), i raise the question of whether these models of dealing with the religious tradition are not also the most important ones in present-day, post-communist Lithuanian culture
