O světě, který tu je i není - o věcech výjimečných i banálních, podivuhodných i trapných, temných i oslnivých, tristních i směšných, paradoxních i logických, stejně tak však i o věcech temně zářících, tragikomických, podivuhodně banálních, výjimečně trapných či zcela logicky paradoxních. A o sobě, který tu je i není stejně tak.

Vladimír Hirsch / Ex Litteris Of St.Paul

The conceptual album, is thematically based on selected citations from St.Paul's epistles. Inspired by the painting "Saint Paul of the new century" of Vladimír Hirsch the Younger (artistic names Vladimír Hirscher, Caer8th), which became the cover art of the album. 

1 Colossians (Col3:15) 
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace

2 Ephesians (Eph 2:14)
For He Himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has torn down the dividing wall of hostility


3 Corinthians 1 (Cor 15:13)
If there was not necessary the resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised


4 Colossians (Col 1:13-14)
He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

5 Thessalonians 2 (Thes 2:4)  
Someone will oppose and exalt himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so he will seat himself in the temple of God, proclaiming 
himself to be God


6 Romans (Rom 16:18)
For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own bellies. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive 


7 Galatians (Gal.4:29)
The son born according to the flesh persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now


8 Hebrews (Heb 3:8)
Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts, as you did in the rebellion, in the time of testing in the wilderness”


9 Philippians (1:29-30)
For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for Him, since you are encountering the same struggle I have

10 Thessalonians 1 (Thes 4:16)
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first

11 Colossians (Col 1:15-16)
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible

12 Coda - Corinthians 1 (Cor 13:2)
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing
